Many people today are experiencing over-work. On top of that, they may also have poor eating habits, little exercise, bad sleeping habits, and of course vices. These factors have been proven to contribute in depression, fatigue, muscle weakness, and other ailments. We often try to sleep these problems off, thinking that we’ll feel better when we wake up. But sleep is not enough. Without proper nourishment, you’ll still have these problems.
