9 Surprising Reasons Why You Are Constantly Tired
- You skip body exercises when you’re tired
Daily exercise improves your strength and endurance, helps the cardiovascular system and affects the delivery of oxygen and nutrients through the tissues. Next time when you return home tired, resist the desire to immediately lay on the couch and instead, walk around the neighborhood – you will not regret.
- You do not drink enough water
Even if you are dehydrated only a bit, it will immediately affect your energy levels. When you do not drink enough water, the blood get thicker, your heart pumps harder and the rate at which oxygen and nutrients reach the muscles and organs gets decreased.
- Iron deficiency
Iron deficiency can make you feel weak, irritable, devolved and too tired. Eggs, red meat, beans, green vegetables and nuts will help you consume iron naturally. However, note that iron deficiency may be a symptom of a more serious health problem and it is advisable to consult your doctor.
- You are a perfectionist
In other words, you feel really tired because you’re tired. The pursuit for perfection makes you do a lot more things than required. Give yourself realistic goals, since the additional work that you devotedly do, is counterproductive.
- You exaggerate
If you assume that you will get fired every time the boss calls you into his office or are you afraid to ride a bike because you fear that you will be hit by a car, you probably suffer from anxiety. Anxiety can mentally exhaust you and you must find a way to fight against it, whether alone or with the help of a professional.
- You skip breakfast
The food we eat gives the body energy and while we sleep, our body continues to use the food we have eaten for dinner. So, when you wake up in the morning, you need the breakfast to provide some extra “fuel”. The breakfast is like fireworks which speeds up metabolism and therefore, if you skip it, you will immediately begin to feel weak and tired.
- You consume too much fast food
Foods that are high in sugars and simple carbohydrates quickly increase the level of blood sugar. Permanent hypertension, followed by sudden blood pressure declines cause weakness and blackouts throughout the day, and not to mention the far-reaching negative consequences of the consumption of such unhealthy foods on the general health. Nobody says you should quit eating hamburger or pizza for good, but the keyword is-moderation.
- You cannot say “No”
Sometimes, the price to be considered good and loyal is paid into energy and happiness. Next time, when you’re tired and your friends want to go to a disco, say no. Better sleep and rest at home instead of being nervous and exhausted. Those who truly love you and appreciate you, will continue to love you.
- You are a caffeine- addict
Starting the day with a cup of hot, fragrant coffee is not a problem, but it is also recommended, but excess caffeine can seriously disrupt the sleep cycle. Studies show that the cup of coffee drank six hours before bedtime affects our sleep and therefore it would be best if you drink your last coffee after lunch.
