3 Possible Reasons Why You’re Always Exhausted - And What to Do About it



One recent report found that 1 in every 8 Brits feels exhausted "all the time" with 25% reporting being tired "most of the time". If you happen to be one of these people, you should know that your lifestyle probably has something to do with it. Most people in our society have poor habits that contribute to their lack of energy, and the worst part is that they often don't realise what they're doing wrong. Let's take a look at some of the possible reasons why you may be constantly exhausted and some of the things you can do about it.


Poor Sleep Hygiene

Everything starts and ends with sleep when it comes to fatigue, and you'll have to look at your habits and schedule to see if there's anything wrong with them. Make sure that you get to sleep at the same time every night and lay off your screens at least two hours before going to bed to prevent them from tripping your biological clock. 


Temperature, believe it or not, also has a major influence on your ability to get to and stay asleep. The ideal temperature for sleep is said to be around 60 and 67°F. So, get yourself a thermostat that can keep the temperature accurate if you don't already and lower it to that range if you want to enjoy great sleep. You can also consider supplementation and stay away from alcohol and narcotics at all costs.


Excess Weight

There is also a direct correlation between excess weight and fatigue, and it's to be expected. Not only do fat deposits have a major effect on energy, but overweight people also tend to eat foods that destroy their gut flora. You may be asking yourself what this has to do with your fatigue, but you should know that your gut plays a very essential role in the production of energy.


The gut is responsible for regulating all sorts of processes and maintaining hormonal balance in the body. When your gut bacteria are out of control, it will throw your hormonal balance out of whack resulting in low energy. So, if you're suffering from bloat and fatigue, this is a clear sign that your gut may have something to do with it.


The first thing you have to do if you want to alleviate bloating fatigue is clean up your diet and try to focus on lowering your body fat level. Bloating and weight loss often go hand in hand, however, so you can expect to experience some of it while you’re slimming down. Switching to an intermittent fasting diet could also help with bloating and fatigue.

Stress

Stress can affect your energy levels as well. So, if you've just recently started to feel fatigued, look at your life and see if you've been taking on too many responsibilities. It's not uncommon for people to get tired after caring for another parent for a long time, for instance, even to the point of getting sick, so don't be afraid to say no, and consider seeking professional help to help you cope with excess stress.


These are some of the most common reasons why people suffer from low energy. If you notice any areas where you could improve, do so right away, and constantly learn about how your body uses and generates energy.
