There are scores of lifestyle habits that leaves you perpetually tired.
Granted that waking up to go to work, the ‘actual’ work itself and many other factors contribute to energy consumption that may lead to tiredness but then there are days strength seem to fail you and if this is persistent, you may just be doing something wrong.
Check out these common habits that could be reasons you are always tired:
1. Skipping Breakfast
The food you eat especially in the mornings, fuels your body because it serves as the ‘energizer’ that fires up the body for the day
When you sleep, your body continues using what you consumed the night before (dinner) to keep oxygen flowing/ blood pumping , so, when you wake up in the morning, you need to refuel with breakfast,skipping breakfast will only result in your feeling sluggish and struggling through the better part of the day.
2. Lack Of Sleep
Anything less than seven to eight hours of sleep is inadequate but unfortunately every day struggle makes it almost impossible. As much as possible, get your beauty sleep as often as you can and if this isn’t feasible, take power naps during the day, they help keep you alive as well as work wonders on the skin.
3. Iron Deficiency
Make sure to include enough iron in your diet as an iron deficiency can leave you feeling sluggish, irritable, weak, and unable to focus.
If you lack iron, less oxygen will travel to the cells and muscles which results in tiredness.
4. Not Enough Water
Being dehydrated for a split seconds takes its toll on energy level, be sure to keep the body hydrated throughout the day.
5 Not Eating Enough
Not taking enough portions everytime you eat or eating the wrong kinds of food affect energy level.
As much as possible, start with a healthy breakfast like eggs, oats to keep energy level stable starting the day with cakes and doughnuts for instance will increase your blood sugar and crash it almost immediately leaving you sluggish.
If tiredness persists, be sure to consult your physician to investigate any underlying health issue.
