    I have fatigue issues too...and with age it has become worse. A soothing thing to do is to draw or color. I have a set of 'adult' coloring books and a ton of various kinds of coloring pens. I find this to be a very calming activity. The other activity that is fun for me is doing crossword puzzles. I have several crossword puzzle books and do that to keep my mind occupied. I do know that there are just as many people that like Sudoku. And for many others that would be a relaxing choice IF you like working with number puzzles.
