Are you feeling tired all the time? Most people do. But you can change that.
If you take control of your daily habits and make some small changes in your routines, you’ll never be tired again.
Here’s what you can do to make sure you’re super productive and energetic each day so that you can spend it in the best and most effective way possible:
What to Do if You’re Always Tired
Go to bed and wake up at the same time.
These two will take time, but it’s important for your body to have such a permanent schedule.
For a start, go to bed when you feel tired, but wake up a bit earlier.
Wind down at night.
Create a peaceful evening routine that will get your mind and body to sleep naturally and effortlessly.
First of all, make sure the environment is good enough for you to sleep well. There shouldn’t be any noises, and devices are a big distraction too.
Unplug some time before you go to sleep even if you don’t feel tired. Get a book instead and let it help you fall asleep fast.
Also, don’t eat or drink two hours before bed.
Have a powerful morning routine.
Once you start getting up earlier, be mindful of how you spend the first hour of your day. It will affect how your whole day goes so it’s better to use it wisely.
A great morning ritual can help you kickstart the day and be motivated to take action. All that can happen by adding the right morning habits and sticking to the routine no matter what.
This way you can be productive and energetic before others have even woken up.
But don’t try to include any possible healthy and positive activity right away. Start small. Do 2-3 successful things (like meditating, journaling your thoughts and a quick workout) now and let each be around 5 minutes. In time, you’ll see what works and will do more of it, and will be able to upgrade your morning routine by adding new tiny habits.
Eat the right foods.
You are what you eat. And if it’s only junk and processed foods, together with any other beverage other than water and tea, you’ll be always tired.
It’s time to change your eating habits and add super foods.
Here are 10 good choices that will give you energy throughout the whole day.
Take breaks while working.
Work can take much longer if we aren’t focused enough and let distractions get in the way.
So break it down into shorter periods of time and add breaks.
A quick daily meditation session can help you a lot with being always tired, sleepy and stressed.
Sit down in the early hours of the day and empty your mind. Stay still, let go of random thoughts and focus on your breathing. Or start repeating a positive affirmation.
There are many health benefits to meditation too. But in the long term, it helps you be peaceful, calm and in a good mood.
Don’t try to get it all done.
Some of the things we do daily, and the items on our to-do list, are pointless. So it’s important to 80/20 everything we do and focus only on what’s essential.
It’s okay to delegate some work, or to just remove some tasks if they don’t help you see progress, be it at work or in personal life.
Not everything is urgent or even needs to be completed at all. So eliminate the unnecessary and save yourself time and worries.
Learn to let go.
Once the day is over, let the little issues and daily worries behind. Otherwise, you can overthink all night and be exhausted in the morning.
But letting go is the greatest way to wind down, to have peace of mind and to be present without constantly going back to the past.
Gradually make all these changes and you’ll never be tired again.
What else do you know of that can help us stop being always tired?
