If you think that lack of a proper sleeping pattern is taking away your energy then you are mistaken. There are many factors because of which you end up exhausting yourself physically and mentally both.
Simple lifestyle check and certain bad habits inculcated end up making you feel exhausted.
Missing workout when you think you are tired
To save energy missing out on your exercise is a very bad idea. It has been found out that healthy adults who exercise daily for 20 minutes or 3 times in a week are reported to feel less tired and full of energy after the 6 weeks of continuous exercise routine.
Thus, next time when you think that you need to sit back and relax on your couch, instead opt for brisk walk!
Drinking not enough water
Even when you are dehydrated even little bit, your energy levels go down and you have a tough time. Due to dehydration blood volume reduces that makes the blood thicker in volume.
Because of which your heart needs to work more efficiently and the speed at which nutrients and oxygen reach your organs and muscles reduces.
Thus, it is highly advised to drink loads of water daily. Nowadays many mobile apps are also available that remind you of the drinking of water at regular intervals.
Enough iron is not consumed
Deficiency of iron can make you feel weak, irritable and sluggish. You can boost your energy levels by including kidney beans, eggs, dark green leafy vegetables, peanut butter, nuts and other iron rich sources. The key is to pair these substances with the vitamin C rich foods as the absorption of iron improves when these two are taken together.
You strive for Perfection
To be perfect in everything is next to impossible. This makes you work longer and much harder. A perfectionist sets up his/ her goals so higher that are extremely difficult to achieve. More so, this results in the feeling of no-self satisfaction. This makes you feel tired and exhausted too! So one must think practically and set up goals that are easier to achieve.
Thus, just lack of sleep doesn’t contribute in making you feel tired all the time. But it is the bad habits that have been inculcated. It is the time to change your routine and your lifestyle.
