4 REASONS YOU’RE SO TIRED

Often, we think we are doing all it takes to lead a healthy lifestyle but somehow, something goes amiss and creates an unhealthy pattern that starts to bug us. Feeling constantly tired is one of those things, and while there can be many factors but before you get worried consider these to see if you can regain strength and energy. Some of these could be the reason, and by making smart adjustments you can rule these out for sure!

1. YOU’RE EXERCISING TOO MUCH

Exercising regularly helps keep the body functioning in an orderly manner. Too much exercise and certain high intensity training can put extra strain on body. Especially the Central Nervous System, this is the body’s way of protecting itself and the result is fatigue. Under eating is often linked to fatigue when coupled with intense training.

2. YOU’RE NOT EXERCISING ENOUGH

When you’re feeling tired after a long day of work, training is often the last thing people want to do. We think that it will make us feel more fatigued. This is not the case. Simply going for a low intensity walk will increase the amount of energy you feel and improve your mood. If you go to the gym, you may not have the best workout, but you will be glad you did afterwards.

3. YOUR GUT HEALTH IS OUT OF BALANCE

All the good and bad bacteria in your digestive tract is central to your health, when it’s out of balance, it can lead to allergies, lowered immune response, poor sleep and other factors that might contribute to exhaustion. Probiotic’s help regulates the good and bad bacteria in the stomach. Helping get everything back in balance.

4. YOU’RE NOT SLEEPING AS WELL AS YOU THINK

You might go to bed early, so you can get a good night sleep, but when you wake up in the morning, you still feel tired. Why is this? When you think you were in a deep sleep, you could’ve been in a shallow sleep cycle and waking up regularly throughout the night. A full 7-9 hours of deep sleep should have you feeling refreshed and energetic.

Here are a couple of tips to help get a good night sleep:

– Turn off mobile phone a couple of hours before bed
– Avoid caffeine in the evening.
– Set the room at a comfortable temperature
– Don’t take life’s stresses with you to bed

And remember, if none of the above are the cause and you are still constantly tired, please consult your Group Practitioner or Family Doctor today. It doesn’t hurt to get checked out, you know!

    These are great tips for better rest. I know, personally being pregnant with my third kiddo and having 2 toddlers at home I need all the quality sleep I can get. Putting my phone to bed AWAY from me at night is a big help and having a routine that I follow helps my body to know it’s time to rest for the next day.

    I am addicted to coffee and I have to learn to stop drinking it in the evening. I also need to increase my sleeping hours which is impossible as I take care of my blog at night. Thanks for sharing those great tips.

    I’m the world’s worst about shutting my phone down before bedtime. I actually look at it til I get sleepy and it’s the first thing I grab upon waking. It’s true that you don’t sleep as well when you have too much screen time before bed, no doubt about that. I loved all your tips, especially the one about caffeine. Guilty of that one too! LOL! And last but not least, I also truly believe that our wellbeing is definitely tied to gut health! A good probiotic has become my very best friend! Great post!

    Yes, I am living the reality of this post now. Too much excercise is interrupting my sleep pattern. So this week I’ve decided to give it a rest. But I can’t wait to get back because I’ve been eating everything!

    I really enjoyed this post. I typically use my cell phone to track my sleep pattern. It’s nice to look back and reflect on to see what areas I can work on.

    This is a great reminder. I started taking probiotics but lately, I’ve forgotten! I must remember to continue taking these as I was having digestive problems before.

    I 100% know for sure that I’m so tired because I don’t exercise enough. And by enough, I mean at all. It’s a problem, I need to get up and get moving.
