Why you feel tired
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in the United States around 15.3 percent of women and 10.1 percent of men regularly feel very tired. About 72,000 crashes and 44,000 injuries each year are a result of drowsy driving, and that is not to mention the estimated 6,000 fatal crashes caused by drowsy drivers in US.
Steps that causes stress:
- Poor diet
- Sedentary lifestyle
- Medical condition
- Lack of sleep
To improve your health and get all the nutrients you need as well as eliminate fatigue it is vital to choose a healthful mix of food from the five food groups, which are: fruits, vegetables, grains, protein, and dairy.
Research by the University of Georgia (UGA) in Athens discovered that compared with sitting quietly, one single bout of moderate-intensity exercise lasting for at least 20 minutes helped to boost energy. An earlier study by UGA also found that when sedentary individuals completed an exercise program regularly, their fatigue improved compared with those who did not.
If you have made lifestyle changes to do with your physical activity, diet, stress levels, and sleep but still feel tired all the time, there could be an underlying medical condition.
Lack of sleep
People aged between 18 and 60 years need 7 or more hours of sleep every day to promote optimal health, according to The American Academy of Sleep Medicine and the Sleep Research Society. Getting under the recommended hours of sleep each night is not only associated with fatigue, impaired performance, and a greater risk of accidents, but it also has adverse health outcomes.
