If you often feel tired, you might need to make some lifestyle changes. Give yourself about 2 to 3 weeks to do the following: Get more sleep, trim your social calendar, eat more wholesome foods, drink more fluids, take a multivitamin, and cut back on caffeine and alcohol. 

If you're still feeling fatigued even after 2 to 3 weeks of following these changes, you might be experiencing serious medical conditions. Here are 7 possibilities that you have to look out for:

Anemia
- This is a result of lacking red blood cells, which bring oxygen from your lungs to your tissues and cells
- You may feel weak and short of breath

Thyroid Disease
- Hyperthyroidism causes muscle fatigue and weakness
- Everyday activities will wipe you out

Diabetes
- Aside from feeling tired all the time, other signs include excessive thirst, frequent urination, hunger, weight loss, irritability, yeast infections, and blurred vision

Depression
- This is a major illness that affects the way we sleep, eat, and feel about ourselves and others
- Common symptoms are decreased energy, changes in sleeping and eating patterns, problems with memory and concentration, and feelings of hopelessness, worthlessness, and negativity

Rheumatoid Arthritis
- This happens when your immune system turns against itself and attacks healthy joint tissue
- Many symptoms (such as fatigue, low energy, loss of appetite, and joint pain) are shared by other health conditions, including other forms of arthritis

Chronic Fatigue
-People who suffer from CFS feel too tired to carry on with their normal activities and are easily exhausted with little exertion.

Sleep Apnea
- This is when you wake up feeling tired no matter how much rest you think you got
