If you’re always tired, you’re not alone. I hear people complain constantly about how exhausted they feel and how they can fall asleep pretty much anywhere because they are so consumed with exhaustion. Well, what may be making you tired may not be lack of sleep or even burnout; it may, however, be some bad habits that you have. But not to fret, you can turn these around in a jiffy. Check out the following common problems along with great solutions.
1. You Don’t Go To The Gym When You’re Tired
I’ve absolutely been in the situation where I feel exhausted and want to skip the gym altogether because of it. But we can’t. When we do this, we become even more tired and our exhaustion can last throughout the week. Exercise gives us energy and releases feel-good chemicals that banish anxiety. Being anxious can definitely exhaust us as well, so make time for exercise. Proper mental and physical health should be your number one priority.
2. You’re Skimping On Water
Water really does have the magical effect to give us energy because it nourishes our minds and bodies. It’s also needed for proper digestion. When we are constipated or bloated we are more likely to feel sluggish and uncomfortable. So shoot for drinking eight glasses of water a day and your body will thank you.
3. Your Iron Is Low
Iron deficiency can certainly contribute to a decrease in energy. “It makes you tired because less oxygen travels to the muscles and cells,” says Amy Goodson, RD, a dietitian for Texas Health Ben Hogan Sports Medicine. If you need an iron boost, try to consume lots of greens, nuts, peanut butter, eggs and tofu and pair them with foods rich in Vitamin C.
