In order to solve problems, people sometimes have to do simple sacrifices. This is the same with the case of tiredness. If you really want to eliminate it from your life, you will have to cut out some things and forget a few.
Let us go first to the things that you need to cut out.
Caffeine – You love coffee. You drink a cup for breakfast, two cups while you are in the office and a cup at night. That’s a total of 4 cups in a day. You think that coffee is great for you because the caffeine in it helps you become alert and energetic. However, later on, you notice that you are becoming more and more dependent on coffee. As a result, you consume more cups than before and you always crave for it. These are just some signs of people getting addicted to caffeine. No matter how great caffeine is for keeping you alert, you should never solely depend on it when you are doing work. This is because the body has the ability to build tolerance on such substances. The more tolerance the body builds, the more dangerous caffeine becomes. You need to remember that it is still a kind of stimulant therefore it is not 100% healthy for the body.
Sugar – You love chocolates. You love sweets. They are your comfort food. You feel happy and relaxed when you eat them. Whenever you are hungry, you grab a bar of chocolate and your hunger ends. However, you realize that after several minutes, you are hungry again and the cycle just continues. This is when sugar should be cut off. Sugar is good because it gives the body instant energy. However, when it is consumed excessively, it can cause harm to one’s energy level. One reason is because sugar is easily absorbed by the body and eating it will often result to sugar rush. Therefore, it is better to take natural sugar such as honey or sugar from fruits. You should also not eat sweets on an empty stomach because that will only speed up the absorption.
Here is one thing that you need definitely need to forget.
Skipping Meals – You slept late last night. You woke up a little late this morning so you were not able to prepare breakfast. You go to the office with an empty stomach. Minutes before lunch, you feel extreme hunger and by the time the lunch break starts, you start eating a heavy meal. However, after eating the heavy meal, you become too sluggish and too sleepy to go back to work again. The reason for this feeling is because you skipped breakfast. You should never skip breakfast or any other meal. This is because when you skip a meal, your cravings will increase and that will result to eating a lot. However, when you eat a lot, the body is not able to digest everything. The slowdown of the digestion process is the reason why you feel tired after eating.
