Lifestyle and home remedies

By Mayo Clinic Staff

For chronic fatigue syndrome, certain self-care measures may help:

  • Reduce stress. Develop a plan to avoid or limit overexertion and emotional stress. Allow yourself time each day to relax. That may mean learning how to say no without guilt.
  • Improve sleep habits. Go to bed and get up at the same time each day. Limit daytime napping and avoid caffeine, alcohol and nicotine.
  • Pace yourself. Keep your activity on an even level. If you do too much on your good days, you may have more bad days.
