Why Am I So Tired

Many people struggle with grogginess or drowsiness throughout their day. There are several factors that can play a part in this. They range from mental to physical issues that can cause exhaustion. Issues like liver disease, lung disease, chronic kidney disease, bacterial infections, and depression are some examples. Sometimes the body, due to lack of sleep, will try to kick into overdrive throughout the day so that when you are ready to sleep you cannot. Being too tired to sleep is a very common issue. Dr. Nassar and Dr. Festic of the Jacksonville Sleep Center can help you learn how to cure your tiredness. 

Why is the Body Tired?

The body does not get tired out of nowhere. There are many issues that could lead to your grogginess or being too tired to sleep. 

  • Not Getting Enough High-Quality Sleep

Getting sleep is important for overall health. During sleep, your body performs many processes like regenerating cells for releasing growth hormones. 

A lack of proper nutrients can lead you to feel exhausted. Some of the proper nutrients are Iron, Magnesium, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, and Vitamin B12.

Even though stress is relatively normal, chronic stress can have the impact of keeping you from falling asleep.

  • Certain Medical Conditions

Things that were previously mentioned like kidney disease or depression can cause sleep issues.

This one seems quite obvious, but taking anything that has caffeine at a bad time in the day could cause sleep deprivation.

A lack of hydration can make you feel very weak and fatigued even at the beginning of your day. Hydration is a major key in maintaining energy throughout the day. 

Being overweight does impact your sleep. It has a big link to certain diseases, but can also make someone more fatigued in general. 

Your circadian rhythm if not properly maintained can lead to many sleep-related issues. 

How to Improve Tiredness

Depending on the reasoning for extreme tiredness in the first place, improving your everyday patterns could be a simple solution. Having a good diet when it comes to nutrient intake and also the times you are eating is crucial to proper sleep. Sitting around all day makes you tired when you shouldn’t be. Another key takeaway is drinking more water and fewer sugary liquids. Other drinks could have caffeine or contain chemicals that could be bothersome.
