Answers For Exhaustion 1

Have you noticed how many people are constantly exhausted?
Even young people?
Today I found an article on this very thing so I'm posting some of the points they made:
"I go to bed exhausted and I wake up exhausted" says Michelle (30). . .
And despite once having had a fairly strong immune system, she has become prone to the latest bugs . . . and her energy levels remain alarmingly low.
"I'm only 30!
Why am I so tired? What is happening to me?"
The doctor referenced in this article says 75% of his patients are "spent"- his term for being all round burnt out.
He explains that our 'total load' (that's all our stresses) has quadrupled in the past 30 years but because these stressors are so integral to our lifestyles, their effect is usually unconscious, slow and pernicious. Our natural inclination is to try to sleep more, and here is where the article gets interesting.
But I will leave that for tomorrow.
Right now I need sleep.
