In brief: Find cause

First, get a good physical, nurolgical, and mental health exam via your doctor. Blood tests, etc.
May need to be done to look for possible causes of your symptoms. Anemia, dabetes, and thyroid problems are conditions that could cause tiredness. Based on your age and gender, hormone / menopausal issues must be considered. Depression is a possibility. Once you determine the cause, the cure follows.

In brief: Good idea to be chec

Physical and mental exhaustion can be signs of stress, being overwhelmed and so on.
They can also be symptoms from medical conditions such as thyroid, anemia, heart or lung disease, too though, so good to see provider to review history and get exam. Being sure to eat healthy, stay hydrated, get regular sleep and exercise, and having supports are keys to feeling well, but may nt be enough right now.
