5 Reasons You Are Tired All The Time

Stayed up late binge-watching Big Bang Theory? And then woke up early to beat the boss to the office. There's no mystery as to why you need an extra shot of espresso. But sometimes, the root cause of fatigue is just more than this. Basically it could either be fatigue or a number of things that are responsible for you being tired all the time.

1. You Are Dehydrated

Working out at the gym, or rushing to work makes you lose a lot of water from the body. Anyone who fails to replace the water would experience mood swings and low energy levels. So keep sipping room temperature water every 25-30 minutes.

2. Overwhelmed With Stress

Stress hormone Cortisol is produced the highest in the morning and the production dips down at night, helping you maintain a normal daily rhythm. But chronic stress throws this pattern out of whack in either direction. Trying to do everything at once comes with a downside. Try and relax as much as possible. Take short breaks to ease your mind. 

3. Drinking Too Much Caffeine

The stimulating power of caffeine is good first thing in the morning or before a workout, but it actually makes it difficult to doze off if you're having it too late in the day. Many people may be ingesting a lot more than they realize, because it’s in a lot of things besides coffee. Hence, caffeine intake leads to no sleep and in turn you are tired for most part of the day.

4. Exercising Too Much

If you’re sweating way too much every day or doing heavy-duty training, fatigue and trouble sleeping can serve as a sign that you’re pushing your body beyond its limits. Workouts—and especially endurance sports like long-distance running and cycling—also cause a spike in Cortisol. You need to strike the right balance between activity and rest. You can overload your system with physical stress  just as you can with emotional or mental pressure.

5. Using Alcohol To Unwind

Too much drinking everyday results in hampered sleeping habits. Having a bottle of beer or a cocktail might give you sound sleep, but not too many. For a more restful night in the sack, stick to one or two drinks and have your last drink at least two hours before bedtime.
