Getting enough sleep, and keeping a natural and consistent circadian rhythm will help your body function and will also help you feel alert and in control. Everyone needs a different amount of sleep, (depending on age, habits and activity levels) but most of us need 8 hours of sleep. Figure out how much sleep your body needs to function at its very best. Then, try to get that amount of sleep in every night. By maintaining a regular “bedtime” and waking time, your body can find a natural rhythm that will help you to feel alert, and combat stress. If you have irregular sleep patterns or find that regular sleeping doesn’t help you overcome your fatigue, you might have a sleep disorder and should talk to your provider. Difficulty sleeping is often a sign of depression.
