(HealthDay News) -- Many people, the far majority of them blind, have
non-24 Sleep Wake Disorder (Non-24),
which affects the circadian rhythm.
This means their bodies don't properly prepare for sleep while it's dark outside and for wakefulness while it's light out.
As a result, many people with the disorder cite ongoing fatigue. The National Sleep Foundation mentions these potential remedies:
- Eat a diet that includes lots of fruits and vegetables, whole grains and lean proteins. This can keep your blood sugar in check and help you feel more alert.
- Exerciseduring daylight, which will help increase your energy and stabilize your blood sugar.
- Drinkcaffeinein moderation. Although caffeine can give you a brief burst of energy, too much can lead to anxiety or withdrawal symptoms, which may cause you to feel more tired.
- Drink plenty of water.
- Limit alcohol consumption.
- Lose excess weight.
- Follow any treatment regimen created by your doctor.
