Over the past few years, even in the afternoon, I feel exhausted! I used to have a ton of stamina throughout the day, so when I started to be tired more often than not, I started to worry. I knew that lack of exercise does that, so I started to work out. While I got healthier, I didn’t really feel any more awake. Then I started to look into other things that could make you tired. I think I may have found what it is! Maybe you have this problem, too.
According to Yahoo, there are a few things that are making you tried, and you may not even know it! At least they give some help on how to fix it. Your morning coffee could be making you MORE tired! Yes, I said MORE TIRED! According to Yahoo:
“First, when consumed in excess, coffee causes a surge in your metabolism, followed by a crash. Second, caffeine has a dehydrating effect. When you wake up, you tend to already be dehydrated from not drinking water for hours. If you don’t consume any other beverages, your coffee could cause further dehydration and drain your energy. The key is to drink caffeine in moderation and to drink a full 8-ounce glass of water around the same time as your morning cup of joe to stay hydrated.”
They also say your stomach can hold a clue either. There could be “bad bacteria” in it that doesn’t allow you to get good sleep.
Your stomach’s inner lining produces acid to digest food, while simultaneously creating protective mucus to guard from this acid. H. pylori bacteria invade the stomach, destroying your protective mucus layer and leaving you vulnerable to ulcers, or tiny sores on the stomach’s lining. While you sleep, acid can escape the stomach through these ulcers and flow up into your esophagus, causing a sore throat and ruining your ability to get deep, restorative sleep.
A few things that could help you with a “pick me up” are eggs and cantaloupe along with “The Walrus” Exercise. To find out more, head to Yahoo.com
