How To Stop Being Tired
“Ugh! How can it be morning already?”
How many days this week did you wake up dreading the effort it will take just to get yourself out of bed?
Is being tired all the time just a necessary consequence of having an active life? You love your friends, your career, and your relationships… but do they all have to make you so tired? Maybe it’s not the commute or the kids or the boss that is draining your energy.
There could be another problem underlying your inability to rest.
Just because you’ve been lying in bed for eight hours does not mean you achieved eight hours of effective sleep! There is a slew of underlying medical conditions that could be preventing your body and mind from recuperating at night.
From restless leg syndrome to chronic insomnia, a variety of different sleep conditions can rob you of proper sleep. If you continually have difficulty falling or staying asleep, it’s time to see a doctor find out whether a biochemical imbalance underlies the problem. Even a temporary case of mild depression can ruin sleep.
If you have sinus problems or are overweight, your tiredness in the morning might be a sign of heavy snoring or even sleep apnea, a condition that causes a person to stop breathing during the night because the soft tissues in the throat have blocked the airway.
Sleep apnea not only prevents deep sleep, it can harm the heart. If you have any reason to be concerned about your breathing during sleep, it’s best not to guess: make an appointment with a sleep specialist.
It’s not much fun to think about, but the onset of illnesses such as colds, anaemia, intestinal disorders, and even cancer can cause sleep to be light or ineffective. If you’ve been unsatisfied with your sleep with more than a few weeks, you’ll rest better if you go to the doctor and make sure there isn’t something serious behind your poor shut-eye.
On the other hand, your poor sleep might be curable through simple life hacks such as keeping a consistent bedtime, avoiding caffeine late in the day, and keeping your sleep space dark and quiet.
Take An Action
If these tactics fail, however, it’s time to take more serious action.
You know you’re tired of your daily battle with the alarm clock. You can’t change the traffic or the train. But you can be proactive in tracking down underlying problems that rob you of proper rest.
If you suspect one of these secret sleep thieves is ruining your recharge time, it’s time to make an appointment with your physician and get to the bottom of it!
