According to the National Sleep Foundation, most adults need between 7-9 high quality hours of sleep each night to feel refreshed and ready to take on the day at their most energetic. However, it is typical for people to still continue feeling fatigued throughout the day, despite getting the recommended dose of sleep during the night. There are several reasons that might cause us to feel tired during the day and most of them can be alleviated by an organic food supplement and a change of our daily regimen. If sleep deprivation is not the only thing preventing us from tackling the challenges of our day at our best, then what is preventing us from resting and how do we fix it?
You might have a physical lack of Cortisol and Adrenaline in your bloodstream.
Although you might be doing everything in your power to help your body rest, you could still be dealing with low quantities of cortisol and adrenaline in your bloodstream, which have the potential to cause chronic fatigue syndrome. The root cause of a deficiency like this is related to the capacity of the adrenal glands to produce the energy-inducing hormones listed above throughout the day.
Potential causes of adrenal fatigue might include:
- Environmental toxins and pollution
- Drug and Alcohol abuse
- Chronic stress
- Poor diet
Any one of these things might temporarily negatively influence the activities of the adrenal glands and cause you to be tired over the course of a workday, week or sometimes even longer, if the cause persists. Get some all-natural POWER to counteract chronic fatigue.
Leading a sedentary lifestyle and not exercising takes its toll.
Have you ever slept for 12 hours on Saturday after a long week and feel as though you are more tired now than you were before you took a rest? This happens because your body’s rhythm gets disturbed. Check out this article from the Huffington Post, about why you might feel more tired after a long sleep. Taking on the initiative of exercise earlier in the day can really stimulate your body to brighten up. Getting sun and avoiding napping after 3pm will also help your sleep cycle stay within similar parameters even during the weekend. We’re not saying, keep your alarm for 8am ON, no matter what the day is, but stay within a predictable range to help keep your body clock on track.
It might be really hard to tell, but sometimes you might be getting poor quality sleep.
It turns out that even if you manage to squeeze in the 7-9 hours of sleep that everyone recommends, you might still have problems with fatigue. Sometimes, the presence of stress as well as technology (don’t let your phone be your morning alarm!) in people’s lives, cause them to suffer from a condition called ‘semi-somnia’ in which the body is sleeping in chunks, waking up often and experiencing information-filled sleep on the edge of waking up. Semi-somnia prevents your nervous system from switching off and your body temperature from getting low enough for your muscles to relax. Want to help your body RELAX? Vital Concept has something for that.
Many people suffer from cases of anemia without even knowing it.
Anemia is a condition in which there is a deficiency of red cells or of haemoglobin in the blood, resulting in pallor and weariness. As with all conditions, there are severe and mild cases, but many adults suffering from mild anemia are not aware of it because they haven’t been tested. Therefore, they resort to attributing their weariness to sleep deprivation instead of getting tested for a mild case of anemia and boosting the iron in their blood with a gentle supplement, like Vital Concept’s Detox. This sort of preventative action can work wonders for your day-to-day lifestyle and keep you energized throughout the day.
If you’re not sure which one of the afflictions above might be affecting your energy levels throughout the day, try adding one of the recommended supplements from Vital Concept’s product line to see which one makes a difference. With regular use, you’re bound to feel a positive change in the way your body deals with fatigue on a day-to-day basis.
