I'm tired all the time, any suggestions on how to perk me up?

Four years ago I gave up a very stressful, lots of work travel, long hours job. I was partying a lot, exercising a lot, suffered a lot from insomnia, definitely burning the candle at both ends, but I was far more alive, awake and full of life.

Currently I don't work, I've a slower pass of life, walk dogs etc. I am having a very large extension done that's over budget and way over its planned end date with little sign of completing anytime soon. I sleep ok (better than before), but I'm so, so tired all of the time. I find it hard to do anything, tiredness or can't be botheredness.

Four years ago I felt 28 (I was 38), now I feel 62 or even 72..

What can I do to get my mojo back?

Thank you.

Could it be vit D deficiancy, as aparently that is getting very common.

Go and see your GP to be checked incase there is a physical reason (lots of vitamin deficiencies etc.)

I know it's a MN stereotype, but get your thyroid levels checked if you haven't yet - hypothyroidism is a very common cause of feeling like death warmed up.

Do something you enjoy every day. If you don't enjoy much, see your GP in case you're depressed.
