The Reason’s Behind Being Tired All The Time

There are plenty of reasons why you are tired all the time.  For one thing, from the moment your feet hit the floor in the morning, you are off and running.  Not to rest again until you go to bed that night.  And then, if you are like most people your head hits the pillow and you suddenly become overflowing with thoughts, worries, or remembrances about what you didn’t accomplish, which keeps you awake.

Looks like you will be tired again tomorrow to!

Of course, there are plenty of medical conditions that can make people feel tired as well.  From something as simple as dehydration to adrenal fatigue or even thyroid dysfunction, feeling tired all the time can be the first sign of an illness.

Yet, more than likely you aren’t tired all the time because you are sick.  You are tired all the time because you unknowingly do everything in your power to work against your innate sleep cycles and sleep patterns.

So how do you know if feeling tired all the time is a symptom of something more, like diabetes or anemia – or something that you can handle on your own?

The first step is taking a good hard look at your lifestyle!  Chances are if you write it all down on paper, there will be no mystery why you are tried.

On another sheet of paper, write down the foods you eat and what you drink every day.  If you are drinking tons of coffee or pop, indulging in fast foods or those high in sugar, your tiredness and inability to sleep could be a simple fix by changing your diet.

Also, begin charting how you sleep and how you feel when you wake up.  Chances are patterns will begin to emerge that may surprise you.  For instance, why is it on Sunday morning, when you slept in till noon – you felt the most sluggish all day?

Few people understand that sleep is a very basic biological function that in order to be effective, depends on a host of external information.  From how much light you are exposed to, to your length of REM sleep, your level of quality sleep depends on much more than just lying down in bed.

The good news is that with a little bit of work, you can learn how to optimize your sleep by working with your sleep cycles and sleep patterns

The most restful phases of sleep are the deep phases, with REM sleep being the deepest.  Do you know how much deep sleep or REM sleep you get each night?

Chances are that you are like most people and have no idea how a sleep cycle works (which is fine as I didn’t either a little while ago).  The truth is that one sleep cycle lasts on average around 90 minutes.  During this time, you cycle from light sleep to deep sleep, then REM sleep.  When that 90 or so minutes is up, your sleep cycle starts back over.

However, if you are awakened or aren’t able to rest properly and never reach deep sleep phases, sleeping 15 hours will still leave you completely exhausted and fatigued.

I can say for sure, that lifestyle habits play a huge role in how tired you feel every day.  If you are constantly tired, and always wondering why you are so exhausted, you need to look at the entire picture in order to make changes.

For me, understanding my daily habits and combining them with comprehensive knowledge of my personal sleep patterns were essential in helping me overcome chronic tiredness.

Sure, I had to make some changes in my life!  But once I did, and once I started sleeping in effort to reach deep sleep as much as possible, my entire quality of life improved.  And yours can too!

Being tired all the time, is no way to live!  Yes, sometimes life is busy, hectic, and overwhelming.  But when you armed with high quality sleep – you will actually find that you can sleep less and gain more.

I hope this has helped you get a better understanding on why you might be tired all the time.

Just a side note, if this is the first post you have read of mine then I recommend reading some other posts on my site as they will really help you in identifying precisely why you are tired.

Or if you just want to know how you can stop feeling tired ‘quickly’ then I would suggest you take a look at the course I put together called ‘Terminate Tiredness’.

I put this course together by testing and tweaking every method I read and studied over a course of a year and then wrote down all the ones that worked (there were a lot that didn’t) and put it all in a step-by-step program showing you all the ‘right’ techniques you can do to stop feeling tired in the quickest time possible.

You can read more about it Here (I’ve been getting some really great feedback from it so thanks to everyone who made the effort).

That’s it for this post, I really enjoyed writing and I hope it has been helpful for you.

As always, I’d love to hear your experiences with tiredness so leave your comments below and hopefully we can help you. :-)

Talk Soon,

Robert Higgins
