A recent study has confirmed that on average, we feel tired for 7 and a half years of our lives! To break it down even further it adds up to being 4 days of each month or 6 weeks of every year in which we feel fatigued.
The study does give some advice for how to reduce the feeling of tiredness however...
"It’s not widely known that a lack of vitamin D is associated with fatigue and exhaustion."
"Lack of vitamin D may contribute to the energy slump that many people experience towards the end of winter when our vitamin D levels are at their lowest."
"Correcting a vitamin D deficiency can significantly improve fatigue in otherwise healthy people with vitamin D deficiency."
