Three Reasons Why You Are Exhausted
Lack of sleep isn’t the only thing draining your energy. Little things you do and skip all through your day can exhaust you both physically and mentally. Here in this blog, we’re talking about 3 habits that can make you feel tired and simple lifestyle tweaks that will help you put the pep back in your step.
1. Skipping breakfast
The food that you eat acts like a fuel to your body, and when you sleep, your body continues to use what you consumed at dinner to keep your blood pumping and oxygen flowing. So, when you wake up the next morning, you must refuel your body with breakfast. Skip it, and you’ll feel sluggish. Eating breakfast in the morning acts like starting a fire in your body by kick-starting your metabolism. A healthy breakfast should include lean protein, whole grains, and healthy fat. Good examples include oatmeal, fruit, milk, almond or eggs with two slices of whole-wheat toast and low-fat Greek yogurt.
2. Working out too much
Are you still trying to figure out the reason you have been feeling lethargic throughout the day despite living an active lifestyle? Well, all the credit goes to your over-training. Yes, as just mentioned, exercise gives energy to your body. However, working out too much constantly zaps your body of energy. The simple reason for this is that you’re not giving your body enough time to recuperate. You must exercise regularly but never over-do it, give your body adequate rest required and you’d feel energetic throughout the day.
3. Eating too much junk food
Been feeling like crap, lately? Well, that is because you have been eating crap. A diet rich of cream soda and pizza is not exactly energy-friendly. Eating starch, sugary foods actually supply your body with a quick jolt of energy but then abruptly zaps the level of your energy for the rest of the day. Healthy food is the key to a healthy life, make sure that you eat all the nutrients that are required by your body in the right balance and moderation.
