Do you Feel Tired all the Time? – Check These 4 Surprising Reasons

Do you Feel Tired all the Time? – Check These 4 Surprising Reasons

We all get tired, that’s a given; if you’ve punched in ten-twelve hours at the office, couldn’t sleep all night, did some serious spring cleaning and what not, of course you will feel exhausted. However, if you feel constant fatigue and are desperate for a nap after doing the bare minimum like climbing two flights of stairs or you start losing your sharpness and focus after only two hours of work, there is a good chance that an underlying issue might be at hand. If any of this rings a bell, it is time to dive into this list of potential reasons and find out what is causing you to feel worn out, so let’s begin.

Anemia

The culprit of fatigue and perpetual sense of exhaustion can be found in a staggering number of health issues. This is why it’s highly important to listen to your body and look for other signals it’s sending you in order to get your body in its natural healthy state. For instance, according to Mayo Clinic, if you notice that your skin is quite pale or even yellowish, your heartbeats are irregular, feet and hands cold, or you’re experiencing shortness of breath, dizziness and in the worst case scenario chest pain, you are looking at anemia. Anemia is a condition that occurs when your body isn’t producing a sufficient number of red blood cells, or it does but your body is destroying them. Two most common types of this health condition are iron deficiency anemia and vitamin B-12. The good news is, this condition is completely treatable; you just need to pay attention to the messages your body is sending you, and if you notice these symptoms, turn to your physician so you can get things under control and bring the spring back in your step.

Leaky gut syndrome

When presented alone, chronic fatigue and exhaustion can mean a number of things. However, when followed by an additional set of symptoms consisting of bloating, gas, cramps, food sensitivities, aches and pains, there is a good possibility that you are suffering from leaky gut syndrome. The definition of this condition is perplexing, but put in simple terms, it is like having holes in your intestines, which in turn allow for particles that shouldn’t enter your bloodstream to do so. Inflammation in the body is the first symptom of this condition, but it’s a dangerous one as it can be the cause of  numerous other diseases.  Once you notice these symptoms, your first approach to tackling the problem should definitely be high-quality probiotics that will restore your bowel health. Another good idea is to do a colon cleanse using natural ingredients such as organic apple cider vinegar and honey. Apple cider vinegar serves as a prebiotic for healthy bacteria in the gut and it eliminates Candida overgrowth which causes fatigue among other more serious problems such as depression and yeast infections. If, however, your condition takes a turn for the worse and additional problems arise with your thyroid gland, weight gain, mood swings and skin inflammation, don’t waste any time before you turn to your physician for help.

Sedentary lifestyle

This particular cause of your fatigue is one that is quite common, especially in this day and age when a large portion of the population spends hours on end sitting, whether due to the nature of their job or simply because we spend an excessive amount of time pealed to a computer or TV. We might not see this as an issue, but a recent research by Queen’s University Belfast begs to differ. It states that prolonged sitting is just as bad for our health as smoking and its symptoms range from soreness, pain in your neck, stiffness, back pain, to chronic headaches, all this on top of a sense of constant tiredness. The news gets even worse, because  when disregarded, the condition can lead to the deterioration of spine, and development of heart conditions, all ‘thanks’ to the lack of movement. The solution is simple, and of course, it revolves around physical activity; once you get those legs moving, you will fix the damage caused by prolonged sitting, improve your metabolism and keep your heart strong and healthy.

Sleep deprivation

One of the reasons for your lack of focus and tiredness is definitely lack of quality sleep, but this problem is more often than not taken seriously enough. More than a ‘worn out’ feeling, poor sleep, if frequent and constant, can weaken the immune system, cause depression and memory problems, brain fog, and even hallucinations. In order to ‘take back the night’ and get your much needed quality snooze time, cut caffeine, alcohol and nicotine from your life. Get a sound machine if you are a light or troubled sleeper; sprinkle a few drops of lavender oil on your pillow – the soothing effects of it are truly amazing.
