For a long time now, you have been wondering over and over again: “ What is wrong and I feel tired all the time? What has gone so wrong and you feel that you are crawling, that your mind is not working, and that your body has abandoned you.
Often, the reason you drain energy and mood is yourself. Specifically, some wrong moves you make in your daily life and burden you physically and psychologically without realizing it. As a result, you are constantly tired.
Lack of sleep, poor diet, and stress certainly contribute to creating all these unpleasant situations; however, they are not the only factors that cause the unbearable feeling of fatigue.
There are a few other causes, not so obvious though common, that exacerbate the problem and make you constantly think about when you will go back to bed.
5 daily mistakes that make you feel constantly tired
You work in the mess
Research from Princeton University has found that a chaotic office causes frequent distractions and limits the brain to process information. As a result, it takes more time to perform even the simplest tasks.
The solution is to dedicate 5 minutes before you start working to put everything in its place, even better at night, to find everything right the following day.
You are not breathing properly
When you work, you breathe superficially; you take short, short breaths, filling the lungs with minimal air and, consequently, oxygen.
During breaks, make sure you take deep breaths and exhale hard, filling and emptying your abdomen to help oxygenate your brain significantly, increasing energy, improving mood, and even relieving muscle pain in the shoulders and back.
You drink some water
We often associate water consumption with fitness, but that is not the only reason you should drink at least two liters of water a day.
Keeping your body well hydrated makes you feel less tired. This was demonstrated by a study conducted at the University of California in two groups of volunteers: one was well hydrated (2 liters), and the other was partially hydrated (1.2 liters).
The participants of the first group showed that they were clearly in a better mood, without suffering from drowsiness, while they were also more productive compared to those of the second.
You are constantly interrupting your workflow
There are phone calls that must be answered at all costs, but let us be honest. You can answer most of them when you finish your schedule.
Similarly, with all those distractions on Facebook, Instagram, and other social media that “pop” on the smartphone or computer screen.
The sun does not see you
And yet, the sun is a key factor in the good health of the body. Even 5 minutes of sun exposure is enough to increase the levels of such a valuable vitamin D.
Also known as the sun’s vitamin, D helps maintain healthy bones and the proper functioning of the nervous system and, therefore, your mental health.
