Are You Always Tired?
Are you always tired? Perhaps you have been wondering why you are always tired throughout the day? Well, today is your lucky day because we have found some answers that might apply to you.
Here Are Some Possibilities To Keep In Mind
According to Linda Melone who is a writer at www.southernliving.com, there are multiple reasons why you are tired. We noticed that our founder has been suffering from some of these in the past week. Anyway, let's dive into these lists of reasons on why you might be tired throughout the day.
Reasons You Might Be Feeling Tired
You skipped your workout - Did you know skipping a workout to save energy works against you? There been a study that was done at the University of Georgia, with healthy adults who did mild exercises 3 times a week for at least 20 mins reported that they felt less fatigued. Next time when you don't feel like working out because you are tired, push through anyway so you can feel less tired.
You might not be drinking enough water - According to Amy Goodson, RD, a dietitian for Texas Health Ben Hogan Sports Medicine says being slightly dehydrated as little as 2% of normal fluid loss take a toll on energy loss. To calculate your normal fluid needs, take your weight in pounds, divide in half and drink that number of ounces of fluid a day, Goodson recommends.
Not enough iron in your diet - Not consuming enough iron can cause you to be sluggish, irritable, weak, and unable to focus. Iron can be found in lean beef, kidney beans, tofu, eggs (including the yolk), dark green leafy vegetables, nuts, and peanut butter.
You are striving to be perfect - There is no such thing as perfect, as we tell our founder every day who jokes around that he is perfect. Trying to be perfect makes you work harder and longer. At the end of the extra time that you added to your work schedule, you may have found that extra time did not really help you. If you know someone who is perfect send us proof because we would like to meet them.
You make mountains out of molehills - Remeber being called down to the principal office when you were younger? You were probably thinking that you were going to get suspended or you were going to be in trouble. However, once you got there it was no big deal. Well, you might find that you are still making mountains out of molehills even as an adult. Our founder has been making mountains out of molehills when companies don't get back to him. Jimmy is always thinking bad is going to happen like they didn't receive his email or they are ignoring him.
You skip breakfast perhaps you have been skipping breakfasts. The food you eat fuels your body, and when you sleep, your body continues using what you consumed at dinner the night before to keep your blood pumping and oxygen flowing. So, when you wake up in the morning, you need to refuel with breakfast. Our founder favorite breakfast includes 8 liquid egg whites and 1/2 cup oatmeal in the morning. Sometimes he likes to have his Shakeology shake in the morning.
You are living on junk food - Foods loaded with sugar and simple carbs (like the ones you'll find in a box or at the drive-thru window) rank high on the glycemic index (GI), an indicator of how rapidly carbohydrates increase blood sugar. Constant blood sugar spikes followed by sharp drops cause fatigue over the course of the day. How to keep your blood sugar low? Eat lean protein and whole grain at every meal.
Trouble saying no - Perhaps you don't know how to say no? Your kids might ask you tell them with their homework right after school. Maybe your boss might ask you if you can stay at work for another hour or two. Tell them no. Teach yourself by saying no.
Messy office - Our founder get super tired of having a messy room. When he can't find stuff either for school or for his website he just gets tired and cranky. Perhaps you can relate to Jimmy?
You work on vacation - Our founder doesn't always work on vacation, but he been working his butt off these past few weekends. He says he been catching up on stuff on the website. well, whatever he has to do it probably can wait until Monday, right? When you are done with a busy week, take a break on the weekend. Don't allow yourself to work on the weekend or your vacation. It's not healthy.
Alchohol before bed - A nightcap sounds like a good way to unwind before falling asleep, but it can easily backfire. Alcohol initially depresses the central nervous system, producing a sedative effect, says Allen Towfigh, MD, medical director of New York Neurology & Sleep Medicine, P.C., in New York City. "But it ultimately sabotages sleep maintenance."
Emails before bed - Checking emails before bed is a bad idea. The glaring light of a tablet, smartphone, or your computer's backlit screen can throw off your body's natural circadian rhythm by suppressing melatonin, a hormone that helps regulate sleep and wake cycles, says Dr. Towfigh.
Relying on caffeine - Having three cups of coffee is the max to have in one day. If you have more coffee throughout the day it can throw off your sleep cycles.
Staying up late on the weekends - Even on the weekends, you should go to bed the same time as you do during the week. If you stay up late on Saturday and then sleep in on Sunday, then when you go to bed on time on Sunday night you will still feel sleep deprived on Monday.
