Stop Waking Up Tired
The holidays are here, the holidays are here, Fa, la, la, la, la, the holidays are here!
It’s the most wonderful time of the year when everyone quickly forgets their discipline, lets loose, eats too much, drinks more than usual, and gets much sleep deprivation.
The next thing you know everyone is singing, “I’m tired of waking up tired!” by the Diodes.
Here are some things you can do after the Holidays to Stop Waking Up Tired!
10 Reasons You’re Always Tired (and What You Can Do About It)
Feeling tired on a regular basis is extremely common. In fact, about one-third of healthy teens, adults and older individuals report feeling sleepy or fatigued.
Fatigue is a common symptom of several conditions and serious diseases, but in most cases it is caused by simple lifestyle factors. Fortunately, these are most often easy things to fix.
1. Consuming Too Many Refined Carbs
Consuming refined carbs can lead to unstable blood sugar levels, which can make you feel tired. Instead, choose whole foods that minimally impact your blood sugar.
2. High-Stress Levels
Excessive stress can cause fatigue and reduce your quality of life. Practicing stress-reduction techniques may help improve your energy levels
3. Not Getting Enough High-Quality Sleep
Inadequate or poor-quality sleep is a common cause of fatigue. Getting several hours of uninterrupted sleep allows your body and brain to recharge, allowing you to feel energized during the day.
4. Food Sensitivities
Food intolerances can cause fatigue or low energy levels. Following a food elimination diet may help determine which foods you are sensitive to.
5. Not Eating Enough Calories
Your body requires a minimum number of calories in order to perform daily functions. Consuming too few calories can lead to fatigue and make it difficult to meet nutrient needs.
6. Sleeping at the Wrong Time
Sleeping during the day can upset your body’s natural rhythm and lead to fatigue. Try to sleep at night or retrain your body clock.
7. Not Getting Enough Protein
Consuming adequate protein is important for keeping your metabolism up and preventing fatigue. Include a good protein source at every meal.
8. Inadequate Hydration
Even mild dehydration may reduce energy levels and alertness. Make sure to drink enough to replace fluid lost during the day.
9. Relying on Energy Drinks
Energy drinks contain caffeine and other ingredients that can provide a temporary energy boost, but often lead to rebound fatigue.
10. Living a Sedentary Lifestyle
Being sedentary can lead to fatigue in healthy people, as well as those with chronic fatigue syndrome or other health problems. Being more active can help boost energy levels.
Remember, wasted days are a result of sleepless nights. Be the best that you can be by doing whatever you can to improve the quality of your sleep.
Happy Holidays everyone and to all a good night’s sleep!
