Meditation for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) leads to overwhelming fatigue and other symptoms that can greatly affect the quality of life. Meditation can come in handy to manage CFS in the following ways:

Reduces Stress

Meditation can help to reduce stress levels by promoting relaxation. This can make the energy-draining effects of stress less pronounced, potentially alleviating some fatigue.

Improves Sleep Quality

Meditation can improve sleep by calming the mind and promoting relaxation. Better sleep could lead to less fatigue and improved symptoms in CFS patients.

Enhances Mental Focus

Meditation can improve concentration and mental clarity, which can be beneficial for those with CFS who experience ‘brain fog’, or difficulty thinking clearly.

App Recommendations:

We love the app Insight Timer, which is free and has some phenomenal meditations, (try ‘Tara Brach’ to get started).
