Are you one of those people who feels tired all of the time? Do you get enough sleep but still have trouble functioning during the day? Does it seem like you need large amounts of coffee just to get going in the morning? If so, you’re definitely not alone.
It seems most of us have bouts of fatigue and low energy from time to time and no matter what we do, we just can’t seem to get our energy levels up. What causes this and what can you do to feel more energized?
Common Causes of Low Energy
Here are some of the most common reasons many of us experience a lack of energy:
Allergies and Hay Fever
Whether you have seasonal allergies or environmental allergies, they can make you feel really tired. In fact, allergic rhinitis is a common cause of chronic fatigue. The good news is you can be tested for allergens and either avoid those allergens or use natural or pharmaceutical treatments to keep symptoms, and fatigue, at bay.
Anemia is another common cause of fatigue. Anemia is quite common and more than 3 million people in the US have it at any one time. Anemia occurs when the body does not have enough iron to make and transport red blood cells. Vegetarians, vegans and women with heavy menstrual cycles are particularly susceptible to anemia.
Iron supplements or eating more red meat is the best way to ensure you have enough iron in your diet.
Depression and Anxiety
Low energy and fatigue are often a result of battling depression and anxiety. People who suffer from either tend to have problems falling asleep and staying asleep. If you’ve ever been depressed yourself or had panic attacks, you know that you just want to spend most of the day in bed.
Depression and anxiety can be helped though therapy and prescription medication, but there are also natural alternatives such as exercise and change in diet.
A Poor Diet
And speaking of changing diets, many people are eating food that makes them feel tired. High-carb and sugary foods tend to spike blood sugar and then we experience a big crash and no energy. Eating this way for too long can cause us to develop diabetes. With diabetes, your body cannot produce enough insulin or use insulin properly. Insulin is what is needed to get the glucose (sugar) into your cells so they have energy. If your insulin is not working properly, you won’t have any energy.
Consider reducing your carb and sugar intake and eat more protein and healthy fats for fuel.
