If the feeling of being always tired all day, even after you slept for more than eight hours, is very common for you, then you should know that it has become a very common problem today. Many people these days wake up with mood swings or a fatigued mind. An occasional bout of tiredness is not hazardous; but if this has become a part of your lifestyle and every day you end up being grumpy after waking up, ready to kill anyone if they talk to you and are unable to concentrate on your work, then these 5 reasons could be a major cause for that.
1. Lack Of Exercise Or No Exercise At All
Even though it’s essential that exercise should be an integral part of your routine, but if you force yourself to sleep every night, tossing and turning and eventually managing to sleep well only by the time you have to wake up for work, then it’s a sign that you need to inculcate some sort of physical routine in your day since your quality of sleep is being compromised.
2. Too Much Stress Or A Bout Of Depression
If increasing your sleep hours is not leaving you rejuvenated but instead making you run for a caffeine kick to work, then you need to analyse if you are stressing about something or your mood is dawning over your sleep. Being depressed or stressed multiplies fatigue and drowsiness. The cycle of an uneasy sleep with a confused mental pattern will repeat and keep affecting your strength.
3. Being Dehydrated For Long Hours
More often than not we forget the importance of staying hydrated. Our body majorly is made up of water and just like if you don’t water your plants they die, our bodies react in various ways when we are dehydrated. Hydrating your body doesn’t mean that you need to fill it up with caffeinated drinks, tea or sugary fizzy stuff. ‘Water’ is the magical word. You will be surprised what gallons of water can do to your body. Your organs will function efficiently, your hunger pangs will decrease, you will feel refreshed, and all this will lead to a healthy sleep pattern, leaving you charged up in the morning.
4. Bad Food Habits
The food you eat is the fuel that runs your body. It is no coincidence that in happy, soppy, depressed or sad mood, the one thing which we run for is food. The difference is that our moods start dominating our choice of foods also. High carbs, starchy and greasy foods end up giving us emotional comfort but are actually pretty harmful in the long run, leaving you more fatigued. This leads to lousiness and an uneasy sleep pattern at night which reflects on your face in the morning.
5. Medical Issues
Besides the above listed factors, your drowsiness in the morning could be a major sign of an underlying health ailment. Your morning exhaustion could be an indication of vitamin deficiencies, anaemia, thyroid problem or some other ailment. You must consult your doctor and undergo all the recommended tests if this has become a routine for you.
You don’t need to be your own doctor and point out reasons for this issue. Sometimes talking on the phone all night or doing a ‘Game Of Thrones’ marathon are not the reasons for waking up tired in the morning. It is always advisable to seek medical help and take an opinion. It’s time to take your health in your own hands!
