Tiredness can be caused by a variety of factors such as lack of sleep or a busy and demanding schedule. However, in some cases, you can still feel tired even after getting adequate sleep. If that’s the case, here are 12 possible reasons why you have no energy.
Electronics Use Before Bed

It’s true, there is a growing body of evidence that using electronics before bedtime, such as smartphones, laptops, computers, watching television, or playing video games turns up the fight-or-flight response, keeping you in a state of stress.
You may be unable to sleep due to increased blood pressure and heart rate hours after using electronics. Many devices also emit blue light which can affect your biological clock and in turn disrupt your sleep. So unplug at least 3-hours prior to sleeping!
