There are times when even after eight hours of sleep we get yawning at work.
To answer the question of why we are always tired, the AsapSCIENCE team investigated the reasons why the exhaustion lasts despite having slept a reasonable amount of hours.
According to the latest video of the YouTube account of AsapSCIENCE, if we know that the number of hours of sleep is not the problem, the second most common cause of this chronic fatigue is lack of exercise or an unhealthy diet .
“In many studies it has been concluded that adults who started exercising several times a week said they felt less tired after six weeks,” the video explains. “People who exercise more often ensure better sleep, but according to research, do not sleep any longer.”
Although everyone thinks that coffee helps, relying on caffeine can also contribute to making us feel more drowsy. This is because caffeine blocks adenosine in the brain, which normally accumulates during the day, and makes us sleepy at night.
“The consumption of coffee or energy drinks in the six hours before bedtime can affect the quality of sleep,” explained the video. “As a result, people who do not take caffeine often say they feel less tired in the morning.”
Dehydration can also be related to having a hard time getting up in the morning.
Experts have come to the conclusion that lack of water in the body causes exhaustion and hinders concentration. This is because the blood thickens, so it slows down the flow of nutrients and oxygen to the muscles and organs.
If we are not sure if we drink the water we should, we should look at the urine. If it is not pale yellow and is darker in tone, you should drink more.
While water is important to avoid chronic fatigue, alcohol consumption can have the opposite effect.
Although alcohol causes us to sleep faster, the quality of sleep will be less than usual, which will cause us to feel tired during the day.
Of course, mental health also has a lot to do with tiredness. People with anxiety, depression or stress are more likely to feel depleted than average, as these diseases can cause both physical and emotional exhaustion and the quality of sleep can be affected.
