Do you feel sluggish and fatigued throughout the day, even after having a full-night’s sleep? Chances are you have habits that are causing you to stay tired regardless of how much sleep you get at night.
Not having enough exercise
Exercise should be a top priority in your daily routine. It helps promote better sleep as it increases the body’s need for sleep in a productive and natural way. It also makes you look good and feel great so there’s really no down side.
Having a poor diet
High-fat and high-carb diets will cause you to be more tired than you should. Studies have shown that our diets effect the duration and quality of our sleep. Switching to eating primarily foods that include iron-rich red meat, whole grains, nuts, leafy vegetables and dried fruits promote longer lasting energy. This is way more effective than eating hamburgers, pasta and pizza all day.
Underlying stress or depression
Those who suffer from stress and depression can also feel fatigued and have a lack of motivation as a result of their condition. Common remedies are getting enough exercise and adjusting diets to promote better mental and physical health.
