Health Tips

If you are always tired, try to exercise anyway

If you are plagued with chronic fatigue syndrome, it may seem natural to want to avoid exercise. But physical activity is a great treatment, experts say. The American Council on Exercise offers this advice about exercising despite chronic fatigue:

-Talk to the doctor before you start exercising.

-Start gradually, rather than pushing too hard from the get-go.

-Gradually increase the duration and intensity of your exercise. Start out for five minutes at a time, and set a long-term goal of 20 minutes of daily exercise.

-Develop a structured routine that includes cardiovascular, resistance and flexibility exercises.

-If you start to feel sick or too tired, stop & rest.
