How exercise can help combat fatigue
When hit with a bout of fatigue, it can be tempting to take a nap or give into a day of lounging. Counterintuitive as it may seem, getting up and participating in low- to moderate-intensity exercises when experiencing fatigue has been shown to help boost energy levels and reverse fatigue-related symptoms, according to multiple studies.
