You spent the last 3 days watching the entire season of your favorite TV show. As a result, you didn’t get enough sleep and you feel tired. If so, catch up on your sleep, you’ll feel refreshed.
But if you are getting enough sleep and still feel tired the next day, then here is a list of some possible reasons:
Anemia is caused by a deficiency of iron in your blood. Iron helps red blood cells carry oxygen to our body, but this process stops when a person is suffering from anemia. This condition can lead to further fatigue, shortness of breath, lack of concentration, loss of sleep, chest pains, and headaches.
2. Thyroid disfunction
The thyroid gland is responsible for producing hormones that regulate the metabolism rate and protein synthesis. So if you have muscle fatigue, weakness, sudden weight loss, a consistent warm feeling, or fluctuations in your menstrual blood flow, then there’s a chance that you might have a thyroid dysfunction.
3. Chronic fatigue
Chronic fatigue can be a baffling condition. People suffering from this condition get tired soon. They find it difficult to carry out even normal regular activities. Chronic fatigue also leads to headaches, lack of concentration, joint pain, and weakness.
Depression is one of the most common and widespread mental illnesses. It doesn’t just affect your emotional stability, but also the way you eat, sleep and carry yourself. The most common symptoms are fatigue, lack of concentration, low self-esteem, changes in appetite, and sleeping patterns.
5. Messy surroundings
Yes, you read that right! Apart from those scary medical reasons, you might feel tired because your surroundings are messy. Studies have shown that neater, orderly surroundings make your mind calmer.
Water helps regulate your body. If your body is dehydrated, your blood thickens, which makes your heart work a little harder to pump it through your body. This change can lead to more energy and oxygen consumption, which in turn makes you tired.
7. Too much of water before bed
On the other hand, if you drink too much water (especially an hour or two before bed), then also you might feel tired the next day because you’ll keep visiting the bathroom throughout the night. So, it’s important to stop drinking water at least an hour before you hit the sack.
While glucose keeps your body running, people suffering from type 2 diabetes are unable to process this sugar. This leads to sedimentation in their blood. So their bodies aren’t getting enough energy, which causes fatigue. Other symptoms of diabetes are frequent urination, excessive thirst, hunger, and weight loss.
Sometimes, allergies can be the reason why you are not able to get proper sleep. Moreover, the allergy medication that you are taking might cause drowsiness. If that’s the case, contact your physician and ask him for the non-drowsy ones.
10. Artificial light exposure
Apart from the light coming from your laptop or smartphone, the blinking lights of your internet router can also interfere with your sleep. If you want a peaceful night’s sleep, make sure to keep yourself away from these lights for at least 2 hours before bed.
