“A large meal can trigger the body to release more insulin, resulting in low blood sugar levels and fatigue, which is energy draining. Eating smaller meals or healthy snacks throughout the day can help keep blood sugar levels steady,” said Sabherwal.

➼ Stay hydrated

Dehydration is a common cause of fatigue — drink water or other healthy liquids throughout the day.
