Why am I tired? Most people know the feeling of tiredness and
probably also ask themselves the same question. The reason for tiredness varies
from person to person. It could be a variety of reasons combined
the sum of
your nutrition, sleep, physical activity, etcetera.
If you want to stop asking yourself “Why am I tired?”
all the time, then you should stop and take a closer look at your lifestyle and
habits. If you don’t suffer from any medical condition, then your tiredness
could be due to unhealthy lifestyle and habits. Do you get proper sleep? Do you
stay up too late at night and wake up at noon? Is your work or relationship
giving you too much stress? Are you eating the right foods? Do you exercise?
Now, these are the questions you should be asking yourself.
Let’s start with your sleep pattern. Do you always experience
sleepless nights and spend your days exhausted? Try to aim for a consistent
sleep block each night. It doesn’t matter whether you sleep for 8 hours or less
than that amount of time, just as long as you’re getting good quality sleep,
you’ll be totally fine.
It’s also good if you take cat naps during the day. This helps
boost your energy levels. So if you feel tired and sleepy for more work,
activity, or play, then take a break. Sit comfortably, relax and nap.
If you’re sleeping enough, then poor diet or nutrition must be the
culprit. If you don’t eat the right foods, you don’t get enough nutrients. If
you’re nutrient deficient, you’ll feel weak and tired. Avoid junk foods, too
much sugar and caffeine, and add more vegetables and fruits in your diet. So to
stop asking yourself, “Why am I tired?”, change not just your
sleeping habits, but also your eating habits.
Remember to keep yourself hydrated as well. Never be lazy when it
comes to drinking water. Instead of drinking sodas, energy drinks or coffee to
fight sleepiness and tiredness, just fuel your body with plenty of water to
make it run smoothly and stop being tired.
Your tiredness may also be caused by lack of exercise or
inactivity. Exercise can have a great impact on your wellbeing and energy
levels. If you don’t exercise or do any physical activity, then it’s time to
change this lifestyle. Create your own exercise schedule. Don’t worry,
exercising doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to go to the gym, even brisk
walking or a simple workout routine at home can do wonders.
Due to your bad lifestyle and habit, you can also be under a lot
of stress, and stress can make you feel more tired than usual. Learn to manage
and get rid of your stress. You can do this by exercising, doing a recreational
activity, going on a trip or vacation, starting a hobby and playing a sport.
It may require determination, discipline and patience, but the
change in lifestyle and habit that you’re going to make is for your own good.
If you want to end your tiredness, make that change now.
