Updated on August 27, 2016


Do you always feel tired?

If you are forced to snack on a daily dose of tiredness, know that there are things you can do on a personal level to make life easier for yourself.

Rule Out Any Underlying Health Issue

For some people, health conditions like irritable bowel syndrome cause tiredness. When it is such a condition causing your tiredness, you must get it treated before you begin to feel energetic again. The usually-employed methods don't work in such cases.

Sleep On Time

Sleep at the same time every evening. This is very important. You can sleep at 2 in the morning and wake up at 10 AM, but it definitely won't be the same as going to bed at 10 at night and waking up at 6 AM. Sleeping at 2 AM and getting 8 hours of sleep will make you feel way less energetic than sleeping at 10 PM and getting 8 hours of sleep.

Ensure You Get Enough Sleep

If you are a teenager, you need at least 9 hours of sleep each night. This amount of sleep will play a big role in your overall physical and emotional development. Remember, your body sorts itself out when you are asleep. If you are are adult, aim for 8 hours each night, and make sure you get at least 7.5. Some people feel that 6 hours of sleep is sufficient for them, but the truth of the matter is that they will probably feel the effects of reduced sleep only in the long term.

Eat Your Meals On Time

Eat enough at each mealtime, and make sure you eat on time. Not eating on time causes acidity and tires you out, even if you don't notice yourself becoming tired. Food is a stress-controller and prevents you from losing your temper unnecessarily. A person receives troubling news better on a full stomach than on an empty one.

Hit the Gym

Giving your body the workout it deserves will make it grow its capacity to tolerate strain. Join a gym or fitness centre. Expect to feel weaker in the initial days, but over time, you will certainly feel a marked difference in how much energy you have.

Take an Energizing Warm-Water Bath

Warm-water baths can be really rejuvenating, especially after a long and tiresome day. Taking a warm-water bath will relax your muscles and soothe your joints. It will also help you feel sleepy quicker.

Adjust the Brightness of Your Phone

Our mobile phones have become extensions of ourselves. We stare into them day-in-and-day-out. Keep the brightness of your phone low unless you are out in bright sunlight. Staring at a really bright phone screen tires the eyes out without you even noticing it happening. Stop using your phone at least an hour before you go to bed. If you use an iphone, schedule the phone to switch to night mode in the evening. Night mode cuts out blue light, which can interfere with your sleep in a big way.

Do Yoga

Yoga is geared toward helping the body cope with the stresses it experiences on a day-to-day basis. Practice this ancient form of self therapy to keep the tiredness you experience under control.

Leave Your Workplace On Time

Don't take on more work than you can handle. Be proactive in ensuring that you are assigned only the amount of work that you are capable of performing without stressing yourself out. Make sure the deadlines set are realistic. You must absolutely leave your workplace on time if you want to preserve yourself in the long run. Avoid hanging around at the workplace after work hours. It will only take away from the time you could be spending relaxing at home or taking a quiet walk by yourself.

Deal With the Little Things That Cause Stress

Don't run your life on autopilot. Deal with the seemingly insignificant things in your daily life that add to the overall level of stress you experience. If you travel by public transport to work, try to find a seat daily. Avoid inconsequential arguments and ego clashes that suck you of energy. Deal with your life one minute at a time.

Don't Overthink

Don't tire yourself out by dying a thousand psychological deaths before your actual death. Don't be a hypochondriac. Don't obsess over things you have no control over. Don't beat yourself up for the foolery of someone else in your team at the workplace. Don't try to simulate your future before it actually happens.
