Individuals need to take the time and reflect upon their daily lives and see how they can change their routine so that they can be alert and ready to complete their daily tasks. You have to sit back and ask yourself...
"Why am I suddenly so tired? Why do I always feel lethargic? What's happening to me?"
You may be doing one of these actions without realizing it.
1. Eating too much sugar
When you eat sugar you get a sudden energy boost, but it comes at a price. Right after you are energized, you are left feeling lethargic and lazy.
So cut back on your sugar intake today and choose the right foods for you to give you the energy you need.
- Whole grain crackers and low-fat cheese
- Fresh fruit or a small box of raisins and low-fat cheese
- Half a lean turkey or chicken sandwich
Although caffeine gives you the energy you need during the day, it can leave you feeling restless at night. Drinking caffeine after three can throw off your natural sleep cycle, leaving you tired at all the wrong times.
3. Exercise (too much or too little)
Exercise enhances our mood by increasing the release of endorphins, a "feel good" chemical that increases energy levels. On the other hand, too much exercise also presents a problem. Over training depletes our energy reserves, breaks down muscle, and eventually makes us weaker, not stronger.
4. Not drinking enough water
Water is needed to flush out toxins, keep your tissues hydrated, and keep your energy up.
5. Clutter and Disorganization
Being disorganized or having clutter in your home can make you feel lethargic and lacking in energy and optimism. Looking for lost or misplaced stuff is a huge physical drain. And trying to remember where things are and all you have to get done on your to-do list is a big mental drain
