It’s the 21st century and people are busier than ever, putting more and more energy into reaching their goals and no matter how much we try there’s something always off. Somehow the energy seems to be fading away and it’s not a one-day story but happens all the time. The constant tiredness and sleepy eyes, frequent yawning and watery eyes, people have tried different ways to overcome it and failed miserably.
Probably these could be the reasons why you feel restless all day long for 365 days a year. Have a look:
1. Fatigue: It is a state of severe tiredness due to reasons such as mental or physical exhaustion. A person phasing through fatigue finds himself unable to execute his operations at full potential and if suffering for long it results in mental exertion producing sleepiness feeling that you experience throughout the day. That not just it, the exhaustion sometimes may result in chronic fatigue and it is the condition where the person would feel sleepy anyway even after a good recommended 8 hours of nap. Chronic fatigue shows the sign when you start experiencing headache, dizziness, blurry vision or joint pains.
There are no single certain reasons for fatigue, it can be triggered by various medical conditions and the list goes for so long.
2. Depression or Anxiety: As much as people would hate to admit their situations depression and anxiety have become one of the most common reasons for day to day sluggishness. It not only hampers sleep but, also destroys eating and other daily activities. A series of negative thoughts start to appear around your brain and regardless of the efforts you put to make it go away, it just won’t work coercing you to pull all nighter wide awake. It’s a medical condition that may take a day week or even a year to cure as it all on the person. Reasons for depression could be anything like a heartbreak, death of someone close or family member and/or bullying at workplace, school or college. For depression, circumstances vary individual to individual hence, no one method to correct it won’t work.
Anxiety, on the other hand, is somewhat related to depression, depressed people are more prone to experience anxiety attacks. Anxiety is a term given to a state in an individual when he or she undergo something causing the person to freak out, a state of distress as the medical field may say. Take it this way, you have an interview scheduled for the next day and the phase you’d go through the process is obstructing with your ability to comprehend at your full potential. You might be scared of the rejection or what they might ask you and this thought and belly twist will keep you awake till don’t know when. If you have ever witnessed the twist in your belly before something crucial, you, my dear friend, is a victim of anxiety.
3. Insomnia: Millennial may address it as being the “night owl.” It is the new cool among the youth. If you don’t stay put on social media or watching an online series or any other work till late night, idea of being cool around your peer group should not even come to your mind and this is the reason why people in the 21st century are facing sleepiness during their working hours or all day long. The status is so severe that 20% of world population is suffering from sleep deprivation. In general, if you don’t take the proper amount of sleep, your brain may start functioning slowly and it has a lot to do with the device people keep using at night that emits blue light shutting the production of melatonin, a sleep causing hormone. There’s no instant relief from it as the cure takes time depending on the person.
Those who suffer from insomnia since long might be taking sleeping pills to have the recommended hour of good night sleep which in turn does no good. The body adapts according to the situation and starts relying on pills itself. One might say drug addict.
4. Caffeine Intake: Coffee and soda pops allows the mind to stay sharp due to the caffeine in both beverages. Caffeine disrupts signal dissemination between neurons reducing the production of melatonin. People having slow metabolism rate may find it hard to sleep with the compound in their system. It is like a never-ending circle where you take caffeine to stay sharp which don’t let you sleep and when it’s time to work you get sleepy and again to avoid sleep and to stay put you take caffeine. Instead of making it a daily routine, switch to better sleeping schedule. Make organic drink a substitute for coffee and if get cravings for coffee, there is always decaffeinated ones.
5. Anaemia: Have you ever experienced troubling in breathing when trekking up a mountain? Well, the higher you go the less oxygen you get which results in dizziness. Similarly when there aren’t enough blood cells to carry oxygen to your body organs. The case is very common among women and one in 20 men. This condition may let a person feel tired like for always until cured. Iron-enriched food is a good source to overcome anaemia.
6. Dehydration: Lack of water not only related to particularly summers only but can happen any day of the season. It simply is a state when the amount of water or fluids in the body goes down causing blood thickening which stops working at full potential that is providing oxygen to parts of the body. It may result is drowsiness or a headache. It neither lets you sleep nor let you stay awake. You’ll find yourself stuck between a situation where you’d want to sleep but you cannot. This causes lack of rest eventually leading to sleeplessness.
There are other reasons such as thyroid problem, arthritis, even oversleeping is one of the reasons. So, get yourself sorted out, take plenty of healthy food and fluids and avoid what causes sleepiness.
