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
