Why am I so tired all the time, even after a full night's sleep?

Why am I so tired all the time, even after a full night's sleep?

While it's common to feel dead tired during the day, persistent symptoms of daytime drowsiness could be linked to your sleep and health habits.

Diet and exercise can go a long way towards getting better rest at night and being more alert during the day. Balancing healthy eating choices with routine exercise can dramatically affect the way you perform throughout the day.

Try this tips that helped me cope up with my restlessness that lasted for a couple of months.

Eat more green and healthy food! You don’t really have to go vegan. Well, if you could the better. Being watchful with your diet will help naturally boost your daily energy level.

Exercise. It is recommended to exercise especially with the lifestyle we have in this age. It can be a routine exercise you got somewhere in the internet or you can just come up with your own routine. Exercise breeds energy. It is recommended that you exercise at least 30-40 minutes a day, 4 days or stretch it to 5 days a week if you can.

Aside from the energy boost, it also releases endorphins which will leave you simply "feeling good" about yourself.

Avoid fatty and processed food. These foods may fill your tummy up but they're not loaded with the vitamins and nutrients your body needs to produce the right amount of energy.

Keep your room dark and quiet. There have been studies that sleeping with lights on isn’t good for you. It makes your mind think and wonder when you’re supposed to be sleeping. If this is not possible, leave one dim light on or use a nightlight.

Ditch those electronics and gadgets. Well, no further explanation is needed for this. This may be the simplest yet hardest habit to break. It has been our habit to scroll down on our social media feeds while waiting for our sleep to come. Which is not going to happen until you realize it’s already way past your bed time. This habit tricks your brain into believing it needs to stay awake because it associates light with daytime. This deception can disrupt your circadian rhythm, which in turn leads to poorer sleep at night and feeling rundown during the day.

We need to find a way to get not just the quantity of sleep you need, but also good quality sleep you deserve! We all deserve!
