Are you constantly tired and no matter how long you sleep, you often wake up feeling exhausted? Here are six reasons you might be feeling this way.


There is a myriad of reasons why you're constantly sluggish, not only after lunchtime. If you're missing motivation for most of the things, you're low in energy.

The energy here can be categorized as mental, physical, or emotional. Before knowing what to do to recover your healthy energy levels, you should first identify what kind of energy has been drained. Are you emotionally exhausted? Physically tired? Or mentally overwhelmed with work? Here are reasons you might be feeling constantly tired.

Inadequate Nutrition

There's nothing wrong with eating a slice of pizza or a piece of cake once in a while. I said once in a while. If this is part of your routine, a lack of nutritious food might be the reason you're low in energy.

Our body is like a machine that needs the appropriate fuel (nutrients) to function correctly. If we feed our bodies with sugary and fatty food, the energy levels will go down.

Sleep Quality

You might be one of those people who say that they slept 9 hours last night but still woke up feeling exhausted. What does that happen?

It isn't just about how much sleep you get, it's about the quality of sleep you get. How many hours can you stay asleep? Do you often wake up in the middle of the night?

You're Too Connected

Working from home and being in social distancing has made us even more connected to our electronic devices for extended periods.


Spending so much time overstimulating our brains with technology can lead to fatigue, anxiety, and even depression. The solution? Disconnect a bit.

You're Anxious

Are you worried about something? Money? Work? Your health? Worries, problems, bills to pay. We all have that. If you put all your emotional and mental energy into worrying about them, you'll most likely feel tired.


A mind filled with concerns and ruled by anxiety can't solve anything. In fact, worrying doesn't solve any problem. Focus on how you can solve what needs to be solved instead of wasting precious energy on just thinking.

You Don't Go To Nature That Often

An extensive amount of studies proved that being in nature is the best thing to recharge our batteries, reconnect with ourselves and improve overall wellbeing.

Due to the pandemic, we're spending more time at home. But we can still go out for a walk, a run, a swim, a hike, or anything that is outdoors.


You're Not Exercising

Any sort of exercise boosts energy levels and our mood by increasing endorphin levels, improving our sleep, and sharpening our focus.

Skip the extra cup of coffee and head to the gym or turn on your Smart TV and search for a fitness routine on YouTube. Anything from 15 minutes to 1h30 of daily activity will do its job.
