There are ten possible causes of tiredness

Do you often feel completely exhausted? No power for anything, constantly sleepy and you don't know what the reason is? Did you think that in most cases your lifestyle is the culprit? Here are ten common causes that can cause fatigue. Let's see!

Why are we tired?

Constant fatigue is one of the most common problems in the population that can be influenced by lifestyle. Someone may lead a healthy lifestyle and have no health problems, yet a unpleasant feeling settles over them: constant exhaustion.

It’s good to know that sometimes complaints can be triggered by a viral or bacterial infection, or possibly a more serious illness, but most of the time, thankfully, there are lifestyle causes of exhaustion that can be easily resolved.

Let's see the 10 reasons that cause fatigue in most cases:

1. Lack of physical activity

Maybe we don’t think that we can become more energetic from exercising, but more energetic, even though it is. During exercise, a number of substances are produced in our bodies that helps to maintain or achieve our freshness. So the energy we put into movement pays off many times over.

2. Bad sleep habits

Although drowsiness is not the same as fatigue, it is often insomnia that causes exhaustion. Interestingly, in addition to too little or irregular sleep, sometimes too much sleep can also lead to constant fatigue. It is most effective to go to bed at the same time each day on a regular basis and sleep only as much as we really need. If you develop a healthy sleep routine, we will feel surprisingly fresh and energetic not only when you wake up, but throughout the day, so this is a key issue!

3. Weight problems

In addition to being overweight it is a problem for the bones and the entire organ system, obesity can also lead to sleep disorders. The most common of these is sleep apnea, characterized by nocturnal respiratory failure, which can occur up to several hundred times in a single night. This sleep disorder can also lead to heart problems. If you experience symptoms of sleep apnea, consult a doctor for an examination.

4. It may be the first sign of pregnancy

One of the first and most noticeable changes in pregnancy is the confusion of sleep rhythms and the feeling of tiredness. In the first trimester, huge changes take place in the body, which is why women are characterized by general exhaustion. It can be a warning sign if we get tired at an earlier time completely different from our sleep routine for no reason.

5. Insufficient fluid intake

Although drowsiness is not the same as fatigue, it is often insomnia that causes exhaustion. Interestingly, in addition to too little or irregular sleep, sometimes too much sleep can also lead to constant fatigue. It is most effective to go to bed at the same time each day on a regular basis and sleep only as much as we really need. If you develop a healthy sleep routine, we will feel surprisingly fresh and energetic not only when you wake up, but throughout the day, so this is a key issue!

6. It starts the day without breakfast

It is no coincidence that we have heard since childhood that breakfast is the most important meal. Nevertheless, many skip the starter meal or may eat inappropriate foods for breakfast. Although a healthy breakfast starts the metabolism and provides energy, in its absence we can easily become tired and slow. Eggs, skimmed milk products, whole wheat pastries or oatmeal are good choices for breakfast.

7. Iron deficiency, anemia

A common cause of fatigue is iron deficiency in the diet and iron deficiency itself. Women are especially prone to iron deficiency (iron deficiency anemia), especially if they have heavy menstrual bleeding.

8. It can also be a symptom of depression

Exhaustion is as common a symptom of depression as loss of appetite, weight gain or loss, anxiety, and loss of libido. If you feel these symptoms are right for you, consult a professional for advice.

9. It can also indicate diabetes

According to experts, the typical symptom of diabetes is severe exhaustion. Many people with type 2 diabetes do not have these symptoms. Regular blood glucose testing or other associated symptoms (eg itchy skin, dry mouth, frequent urination, visual impairment) are recommended.

10. Taking medication

A common side effect of certain medications is fatigue. In most cases, antihypertensive drugs, hypnotics, anxiolytics, and antidepressants can cause fatigue. When you start taking a new medicine, your body needs time to get used to it. However, if you still feel tired after weeks, it’s time to see a doctor.

How do we maintain our healthy freshness?

The simplest and most important things we can do to stay fresh and healthy are:

  • eat healthy,
  • pay attention to quality sleep,
  • avoid alcohol consumption,
  • introduce regular exercise,
  • spend as much time as possible in the fresh air
  • we try to avoid stress.
