When someone asks you to do something, say, ‘Let me check my schedule and I’ll get back to you.’
This gives you time to think about the request and decide if it’s something you really want to do, or simply an energy-sucking waste of your time. These are the energizing tricks you need to try if you are always tired.
Have your thyroid checked
If it’s not producing enough thyroid hormone, it could be making you feel tired and run-down. A simple blood test will tell. Other symptoms of low thyroid are dry skin, weight gain, constipation, and feeling cold.
List all the people you’re angry with and write each a letter of forgiveness
Stewing over past events only drains your energy. “Try to accept others for who they are and don’t expend a lot of effort on changing them,” says Dr. Wilson. Oh, and you don’t have to send the letter. Simply writing it is enough.
