Five Reasons Why We Feel Sleepy All the Time
Waking up every day and rushing to the office while feeling sleepy as fuck has become an everyday practice for most of us. We feel lethargic to start our day, not willing to push ourselves to work and eventually end up sleeping for a few more hours. However, if you think that taking those extra hours of sleep can make you more active for the rest of the day, then you seriously need to brush off this idea as soon as possible. There are perhaps many reasons behind your constant state of sleep deprivation that you need to be aware of. Below are some that you must look at:
- You are always dehydrated:
Amidst daily to-and-fro commute to work, various commitments to family, we forget how important is to drink water. Instead of preferring those heavy cups of Tea, drink at least 2-3 liters of Water every day as dehydration can lead you to become lethargic and also results in shrinking some parts of your brain.
- You sleeping hours are abnormal:
In this digital oriented lifestyle, it has become nearly impossible to take our eyes away from our Mobile Phones for even an hour. While seeking happiness in making Snapchat and commenting on your friends’ pictures, one forgets that the phrase “Early to bed and Early to rise” is the primary lookout for an active and healthy lifestyle.
When nothing seems right for us, when nothing makes us feel happy, depression hits our body which perhaps takes our energy level to an extreme low. To see some changes in the body one must avoid eating processed food.
- Your Smartphone is your enemy
Most of us have this habit of using our phones one last time before falling asleep, which eventually end up killing one more hour of sleep. Also, at night, the light of our phones emits radiation to our eyes which restricts our body to produce Melatonin, a hormone which enables us to get a sound sleep at night. Avoid taking your phone to your bed.
A common cause of fatigue could be due to Anemia, a condition in which the body has very less number of red blood cells due to iron deficiency. Eat foods which are rich in iron and have other multi-vitamins too.
