Lack of sleep is not the only thing that can sap your energy. The little things you do or don’t do can exhaust you both mentally and physically, which can make getting through your day a bit difficult. According to fitness experts, some common habits that can make you feel tired and unable to carry out your daily activities include the following:
- Irregular exercise: Did you know that skipping your workout actually works against you? In a University of Georgia study, it was revealed that “sedentary but otherwise healthy adults who began exercising lightly three days a week for as little as 20 minutes at a time reported feeling less fatigued and more energised after six weeks.”
- Regular exercise boosts strength and endurance, helps your cardiovascular system to run more efficiently, and delivers oxygen and nutrients to your tissues. So, next time you’re tempted to crash on the couch, at least go for a brisk walk – you won’t regret it.
- Dehydration: Being even slightly dehydrated – as little as two per cent of normal fluid loss -takes a toll on energy levels. Dehydration causes a reduction in blood volume, which makes the blood thicker. This requires your heart to pump less efficiently, reducing the speed at which oxygen and nutrients reach your muscles and organs.
- Iron deficiency: Iron deficiency can leave you feeling sluggish, irritable, weak, and unable to focus. It makes you tired because less oxygen travels to the muscles and cells. Boost your iron intake to reduce your risk of anaemia by loading up on lean beef, kidney beans, tofu, eggs (including the yolk), dark green leafy vegetables, nuts, and peanut butter.
