Have you had any of your vitamin levels checked? A lot of times vitamin B3 or B12, and sometimes D3 deficiencies can cause massive energy-loss. It happens to me ALL THE TIME.

Although there are lots of things you can do to help your situation, the BIG thing you must do--for your health, your family, your very sanity--is to cut back where you can. Being a "full-time student" and working full time is a crazy combination as well as a bit of a waste of your money, for, frankly, how much can you really absorb of your class work if you are as tired as you must be? If you must work full time, then cut back classes; if you can afford to work part-time, do so.

Sorry to be blunt; I'm a professor, and run into this with my students all the time. It takes longer to finish a degree if you go part time, but you get the bang for your buck (one of my colleagues says that the only consumers in this country who do not insist on getting their money's worth are college students).

You only get one life. "Spending" it is great: "wasting it isn't so hot.

I wish you good success.

To be completely honest, it varies. In the past 2 weeks I haven't exercised at all though. :( I'm working on having exercise be a daily part of my life

Another question for you. How often do you exercise? I experience the same tired feeling most of the time, but find that if I can do a little exercise, even a short walk, the endorphins kick in and help me. It actually gives me more energy. Sometimes I have to trick myself by saying, OK, if you still feel tired after 15 minutes of exericse, you can quit. NEVER happens. I always start feeling more energetic.

Hope this suggestion helps! Good luck!

How many hours of sleep do you get?

Hello all, I'm fairly new to SP but would love to get feedback. For the last few months, I've been lacking energy and it seems that i'm always tired. while I know working full time and being a full time student as well as a mother and wife can be energy level is on a whole other level of slow. Any recommendations would be appreciated.
