Having a lack of sleep is probably the most obvious reason.
Couple that together with an irregular sleep schedule and you’ll find yourself nodding off throughout the day, trying to keep yourself awake.
But there are also other factors that could be making you fatigued.
One of them is the amount of physical activity that you’re getting.
And yes, this refers to exercise.
Be it cardio, strength training, pilates, yoga, anything.
How much physical activity are you getting daily?
If you’re not doing much of it, chances are, your body’s becoming sluggish from all that inactivity.
Which then forms the impression of fatigue and laziness.
You actually feel tired when you’re not exercising enough.
Contrary to popular belief, exercise actually makes you more awake and energised.
You don’t hear that often but it’s true.
Some of us seem to hold this belief that exercising when we’re tired makes us more tired.
But that couldn’t be further from the truth.
And it’s probably something that we can all aim to have more of every day.
Now that you’ve got a consistent exercise and sleep schedule in check and you’re still feeling tired all the time, what’s next?
The next suspect is your water intake then.
You’re probably not drinking enough water if you’re still feeling tired after getting enough exercise and sleep.
If you’ve been here for some time, you’ll know that I’m a huge fan of drinking a ton of water.
And for good reason too.
Lack of hydration not only makes you tired.
You’re also prone to getting mild headaches, be less focused and more likely to be in a bad mood.
So make sure you’re getting enough sleep, exercise and water.
And expect your productivity, mood and energy levels to boost.
