Qigong, a traditional Chinese workout that involves mindfulness and physical activity, is often helpful in dealing with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). Below are some of its benefits.

  • Boosts Energy: Qigong exercises can rejuvenate and strengthen the body’s vital energy, called ‘Qi’, which can be extremely beneficial for those dealing with CFS, as it can help to reduce feelings of chronic fatigue.
  • Promotes Relaxation: The mind-body approach of Qigong offers a calming effect and may help to reduce stress and anxiety levels, which can sometimes trigger symptoms of CFS.
  • Improves Sleep: Regular practice of Qigong can improve sleep quality, an essential aspect for those with CFS as a good night’s sleep can significantly affect energy levels and overall mood.
  • Enhances Immune System: Qigong helps to boost the immune system, which is particularly beneficial for people with CFS since an improved immune system can help manage and potentially reduce the symptoms of this condition.
