Poor Blood Circulation – Tired of Being Tired?

Poor blood circulation may be the reason many men feel constantly fatigued. It’s tough being tired all day. When you’re tired, not much seems appealing. Life is dulled, and you don’t get much accomplished. Worst, you don’t have the energy to change the situation.

Are you one of the millions who are always constantly feel fatigued? Do you feel that you can never catch up on your sleep or your energy reserves have been permanently depleted? Do you wonder if you will ever return to your normal self again? You’re not alone. In fact, fatigue is one of the most common complaints that bring adults to doctors’ offices.

If you’re like most people you probably assume that your fatigue is the result of a hectic lifestyle, but what if it isn’t? What if your fatigue is a symptom of something more serious than the every day chaos of life? You may just be one of millions men who suffer from poor blood circulation.

By definition, fatigue is more than simply feeling sleepy. Fatigue is the constant sensation of being tired or lethargic and is often accompanied by a feeling of weariness and a lack of energy. Normal fatigue happens to all of us, at times when we are sick with a cold or flu, working long hours in the office or after exercising hard. You may also experience normal fatigue when you have unrelieved stress and a lack of exercise is believed to be the main cause of a sharp increase in degenerative conditions caused by poor blood circulation.  can all be reversed with the proper amount of rest and generally do not last longer than a few days.

Sometimes chronic fatigue can be a sign of deeper problems. For athletes, it’s often a sign of over training. For others, it could be a sign of depression or other medical issues. If it’s a continuing problem, I’d recommend getting checked out, just in case.

Fatigue lasting longer than 2 weeks is defined as abnormal and should be evaluated by a health care provider. Fatigue is a sign that something is not functioning properly within your body and should be addressed immediately.

Poor Blood Circulation Problem previously mostly seen in middle-aged men, and those with hypertension, diabetes or arteriosclerosis. It is now seen increasingly in otherwise healthy men, and is a grave concern.

Blood Circulation Problem refers to limited blood flow throughout the body, particularly in the peripheral areas such as the hands, legs, and feet. The smoothness of blood flow is crucial to a healthy existence as blood carries oxygen and nutrients to every cell in the body. Many people underestimate the occurrence of these impaired circulation symptoms. The symptoms of Blood Circulation Problem do not develop overnight. They begin in a very mild form, and steadily worsen as time goes on.When your major organs do not receive adequate oxygen and nutrition, and if left untreated, it can result in a myriad of chronic conditions ranging anywhere from varicose veins to kidney damage to a heart disease, stroke and cancer which might Claim Your Life!

Those who suffer the condition often also experience symptoms such as erectile dysfunction, frequent urination, cold limbs, lower back pain, numbness and weakness in arms and legs, pain or cramping in leg and hip. Other symptoms of poor blood circulation prevalent in men include Chest pain, Impaired or slurred speech, Slow recovery from aches and tiredness, Slow healing sores or wounds.

Ignoring these signs and symptoms can lead to serious health conditions, including the loss of limbs, heart attack and stroke.

Poor blood circulation problems do not take place overnight, and is usually the result of years of poor health. It is important to remember that poor blood circulation is usually an outcome of certain lifestyle habits that tend to have a detrimental effect on our health. In addition to poor lifestyle habits, factors such as a poor diet and lack of daily physical exercise causes fatty deposits to be formed on the arterial walls. These fatty deposits when hardened over a period of time become plaques that create obstructions to the smooth flow of blood which goes to and fro the heart.

The formation of plaques takes a long time to develop and hence poor circulation problems are usually seen among the elderly rather than affecting children. Unhealthy food habits also contribute to the buildup of bad cholesterol that creates an anomaly in the smooth flow of the blood. Since blood circulation takes place throughout the body, blood circulatory disorders are usually manifested in numerous ways.

Of course, this will make you wonder how to increase blood circulation. The main changes to make are in your diet and lifestyle. The first basic ones are to not smoke, and to get enough exercise, which will train your body to use blood more efficiently. That way, even with the decreased flow of blood, your body should manage if the problem is not too severe.

Eat a balanced diet that includes a variety of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats with an emphasis on vegetables, whole grains, and healthy oils. Taking a daily multivitamin will ensure that you get the vitamins and minerals you need, but taking extra amounts of individual nutrients won’t give you more energy.

Eating certain types of foods in particular amounts can help prevent fatigue. Because different kinds of foods are converted to energy at different rates, some — such as candy and other simple sugars — can give you a quick lift, while others — such as whole grains and healthy unsaturated fats — supply the reserves you’ll need to draw on throughout the day.

Eat small, frequent meals. Where energy is the issue, it’s better to eat small meals and snacks every few hours than three large meals a day. This approach can reduce your perception of fatigue because your brain, which has very few energy reserves of its own, needs a steady supply.

Reduce stress

The most common cause of persistent fatigue is stress and the emotional response to it. People who feel fatigued most of the time don’t necessarily have more stress in their lives than other people, but they may be more sensitive to its effects. Stress-induced emotions consume huge amounts of energy. Relaxation therapy can be an effective tool for reducing stress and naturally boosting your energy, particularly when used in combination with cognitive behavioral therapy.

Meditation, self-hypnosis, yoga, and tai chi are all relaxation techniques. One of the easiest techniques to use is progressive muscle relaxation, which involves systematically tightening and releasing sets of muscles, beginning with your toes and progressing up your legs, torso, hands, and arms. You might also consider other relaxation therapies, including aromatherapy and massage. No matter what age you are, there are things that you can do to feel more energetic.

Sleep more at night

If you’re not getting at least 7 hours of sleep, you’re probably getting too little. Lots of people need a full 8 hours, and some need more. Go to bed earlier — the Internet will be fine without you. I like to read before bed (a book, not websites) as a ritual that helps me sleep. It takes awhile before your sleeping patterns change. If you have insomnia, try my simple cure.

Sleep disorders are a common problem in today’s society living with some form of sleep disturbance. If you’re suffering from insomnia (difficultly falling asleep) or hypersomnia (excessive sleeping) then you are more than aware of the problem. However, you could be suffering from the disorder sleep Apnea and not even be aware of it. Sleep Apnea causes you to stop breathing for at least 10 seconds at a time while you are sleeping. This interruption in breathing usually occurs more than 20 times during each hour that you are asleep. The condition, which is associated with aging, obesity and depression, is a major risk factor for stroke and heart attack and should be taken very seriously.

Take stretch breaks

We sit for too long at the computer, sapping energy. Get up, stretch, every 20-25 minutes. Walk around for a minute or five. Move in any way you can — do pushups, squats, lunges, jump up and down, do a dance. Get the blood circulating.

Exercise regularly

Lack of exercise leads to a health problem called “deconditioning” wherein the organs of the body begin to deteriorate resulting in fatigue. It’s amazing how even a little exercise can help you to feel more energized throughout the day. A huge workout session can leave you exhausted — in which case you should rest — but shorter workouts leave you physically just a bit tired, but mentally you feel amazing. Yoga is another useful exercise for improving blood circulation. Headstand, a part of the Yoga regimen, is another exercise which can prove useful for improving your blood circulation and keep your body fit. Headstands also provide nourishment to the pituitary glands and the pineal glands of the brain.

Hydrate

Most of us have become dangerously and chronically dehydrated (especially the elderly), since we decided water was too bland to drink and ignored it in favor of addictive sodas, beer, wine, flavored water, other chemical-laced water alternatives and/or simply tea and coffee.  Many of today’s designer drinks are diuretic in their effect (water-expelling) because their mostly acidic compositions require the body to give up water and alkalizing minerals to eliminate their harmful residues. This is actually a huge factor that most people don’t realize is making them tired. Drink water throughout the day, drink plenty of water for proper hydration.  Drinking more water doesn’t hurt. Your pee should be a light yellow if you’re well hydrated (not clear, definitely not dark yellow).

Freshen up

Sometimes a quick, cold shower in the afternoon or evening can be refreshing. Or change your socks. If you’re sweaty, a fresh outfit also helps. Wash your face. You’ll feel brand-new.

Work with interesting people

If you work with other people who are passionate about something, you’ll feel more excited about the work you do. It’s incredible to work with a partner or group of people who care about what they’re doing, who are fired up. If you don’t have that, seek it out.
