The Reasons for your Constant Fatigue
Are you tired all the time? No matter what you do, you just can’t get enough energy. The more you sleep, the better you eat, simply isn’t enough. We all tend to blame being tired on a too-busy lifestyle. And much of the time we’re right. But if you feel tired all the time or you’re always asking yourself “why am I so tired?”, don’t ignore this symptom.
There are different types of fatigue, each with a range of explanations behind it and how to prevent it.
Caffeine is No Longer Helping
Drinking tea or coffee, isn’t always the key to feeling alert and spunky all day, it can actually bring you down if you have too much of it. Caffeine is a stimulant that elevates the hormones released from your adrenal gland (noradrenalin) as well as the hormone serotonin from the brain and gut. While this may help you to literally “feel” better, it will also deplete your body’s own natural response to releasing them when needed. Therefore resulting in the perpetual need for caffeine for energy.
Energy Lulls or Crashes
We feel a gap in our energy levels thanks to the way our blood sugar dips and spikes throughout the day. This unusual teetertotter can be made worse by eating sugary foods which cause us to experience a high and then a crash shortly after, leaving us more tired. Eating foods that slow release energy is a way to prevent this, such as healthy fats, fiber and vegetables.
Inability to Concentrate
Find yourself staring at the computer screen, unable to concentrate? Or had someone explain something to you and managed to retain absolutely no information whatsoever? This could be because you aren’t getting enough of certain B vitamins. People who are deficient in B vitamins often suffer with irritability, poor memory and concentration. Supplementing with a B vitamin Shot weekly can help to feed your body the B vitamins it’s lacking, naturally.
