Often at the end of the day, or sometimes even in the morning when you wake up after a restful sleep, you feel like you have no energy left inside of you. Why does this happen? There are a number of reasons why you can feel drained of energy, and here are the top five reasons that could be bringing you down.
Not enough water
It is known that even the slightest amount of dehydration can lead you to feel sluggish and cause a strain on concentrating on even the simplest tasks. So, the next time you are feeling tired, do not jam up on those cookies or some chocolates, instead have a couple of glasses of water.
Keep your phone far from your pillow
It is known that when you check your phone just before you are about to go to sleep will lead to increasing brain activity. Once your brain is amped up, you are going to find it difficult to fall asleep.
What Medicines Are You Having?
Certain medication that are used for treating blood pressure, anti depressant and beta blockers that help prevent a migraine can contain components that work as energy zappers. If you have noted a drop in your energy levels after you have started a certain medication, you should indeed consult with your doctor sooner rather than later.
Too Much Exercise
Working out helps increase stress relieving hormone called cortisol, but high intensity work outs can rev up its production. Therefore, it is necessary that one follows interval training by combining it with strength training.
Are You Low on Iron?
This mineral is responsible for carrying oxygen to all parts of one’s body and is also responsible for removing waste from one’s body. Your body needs at least 18 milligrams of iron in a day to function properly. A simple blood test can help you learn if you have anemia or iron deficiency.
Knowing what it is that is bringing you down is important before you take on methods to treat the lethargy. It could be nothing, but it could be serious as well, and therefore, speak with your doctor and also speak with a Registered Holistic Nutritionist to learn what foods will keep you strong and healthy. Homeopathy too has some great natural remedies that can indeed help you bust out of that slump.
