10 Reasons You Feel Tired All of the Time

It’s a problem many of us have to deal with—feeling tired in the middle of the day. It’s a costly problem. Not only can it prevent us from doing the things we love (like exercising and visiting friends and family) and the things we need to do (like work), but it can pose a danger to our health. In fact, every year fatigue results in about 100,000 automotive accidents. Sometimes the impact of sleep deprivation is even more significant: the 1979 nuclear accident at Three Mile Island, the Exxon Valdez oil catastrophe, the 1986 Chernobyl meltdown—all were caused by sleep deprivation.

So, what’s causing you to feel so tired?

 

1. Skipping your Workout

Feel a little tired? It’s no excuse to skip your workout. In fact, a study from the University of Georgia shows that failing to exercise on a regular basis can actually make you feel more tired. The trick is to devote at least a brief amount of time—between 20- and 30-minutes—to relatively intense exercise (such as running or cycling) on a regular basis. You don’t have to run a marathon to keep your energy levels high.

Just get out there and do something physical. After all, regular exercise has been shown to boost strength and endurance, making your entire body run more efficiently, meaning you won’t feel so tired so often.
