Here are three reasons why you might be feeling that way and you may want to look into changing it if you want better habits! Stay healthy with good sleep and feel energized.
Too Much Sleep
What am I talking about that if you sleep more you feel more exhausted?! That sounds ridiculous and I know that no one wants to hear it but that is true. Scientists call oversleeping drunkenness because it feels sort of like a hangover. When you sleep too much, you’re throwing off that biological clock, and it starts telling the cells a different story than what they’re actually experiencing, inducing a sense of fatigue. You might be crawling out of bed at 11am, but your cells started using their energy cycle at seven. This is all very similar to jet lag, if you have ever experienced it. But oversleep isn’t just going to ruin your day. If you’re oversleeping on the regular, you could be putting yourself at risk for diabetes, heart disease, and obesity.
The infamous put your phone down or laptop away before you lay down for bed. OH NO! You can’t miss out on your nightly scroll through Facebook to see what everyone is up to or to just laugh at stupid memes all night. Well here is the problem, you start to scroll and then after two hours you don’t realize how long it has been and now you cut your 8 hours of sleep into 5 1/2 hours which isn’t sufficient enough and you will be more exhausted in the morning! It’s not only bad for your sleep schedule to just lay in the dark and scroll through social media but it is also terrible for your eyes. You are constantly putting strain on your eyes when you are in a dark room with a bright light close to your eyes. This is not only bad for your sleeping schedule and can decrease your chance of getting a full night of sleep but it is also bad for your eyes and can cause severe headaches. PUT YOUR PHONE DOWN!
Yes, I know sadly alcohol can create more bad than good. We know that you get hangovers already, that wear you out and make you more lethargic. Well folks that can create more exhaustion and feelings of not wanting to get out of bed or plain out not doing anything all day but eat and lay around. The day after drinking copious amounts of alcohol and barley any water is going to dehydrate your body like crazy and make you feel like garbage. If your end game is to get back on a good schedule and stop feeling so tired and worn out, so that you can enjoy life, then you need to cut down the alcohol in your life and learn a healthy happy balance.
