What is fatigue? 

It’s worth pondering if you are suffering from chronic fatigue that rest and sleep USE energy. Lying still uses energy. Sleeping uses less but only a fraction less. It’s still ‘draining your energy resources’. It’s interesting to ponder that healthy people wake up each morning having used energy to sleep but feel more ‘energised’.

There is a difference between the energy in our body and how ‘energetic’ or fatigued we feel. Fatigue is not running out of energy. 

You won’t rest your way out of chronic pain or fatigue.

Challenging the way we think about chronic pain and chronic fatigue can be an important first step to recovery.
