Why am I tired all the time?

With hectic lifestyles, late nights and fast food, feeling tired and low on energy is something we can all relate to. You're not the only one. 1 in 2 people in the Middle East have a vitamin deficiency which can be a cause of tiredness. At rite, we care about you. We want to give your body the nourishment and love it needs. Don't freak out because we've got you covered! Here are some causes of low energy and what you can do to boost it.

1. Stress

Stress messes up sleep, nutrient absorption and slows down digestion which can lead to constipation and gut problems. When nutrients are not properly absorbed, you may have vitamin and nutrient deficiencies which makes you tired. Hormonal imbalances due to stress can mess up your menstrual cycles, sugar levels, leading to unwanted weight gain and low energy.

The fix? Chill out! Meditate, do yoga and deep breathing exercises to get oxygen circulating properly or go for a walk to improve blood circulation. Talk to someone you love and trust.

2. Eating too much refined or processed food

Carbs are not bad but the type of carbs matter. Simple carbs like refined sugar, white flour and white rice have their nutrients like fibers removed which makes them easily and quickly broken down in the body and releases sugar very quickly. When sugar is released quickly, sugar levels increase in the blood which can lead to diabetes, weight gain and belly fat. When this sugar level suddenly drops, you feel low and tired again. This is called a sugar spike. High amounts of sugars slow down digestion leading to constipation.

3. Anemia

Anemia means you don’t have enough healthy red blood cells to carry oxygen around the body. Cells NEED oxygen to work properly. When parts of the body don’t get enough oxygen, cells start performing slowly which makes you tired, weak and low on energy. This affects a lot of women especially due to loss of blood during menstrual cycles. Men can have anemia too.  

4. Lack of exercise - Walk, run, jump but no energy drinks!

When you feel tired, all you want to do is probably sleep all day. You might think sleep and rest will help to cope with tiredness and low energy but it actually does the opposite. You get so used to feeling tired that doing the smallest of tasks becomes hard. 

Exercise helps balance hormones cortisol and serotonin. High cortisol and low serotonin, makes you crave sugary  and fatty food to feel-good. But this ‘good feeling’ only lasts a short time. 

No activity and sugary food is a recipe for weight gain and body fat. Energy drinks are just filled with caffeine and refined sugar which make you lose sleep, cause sugar spikes which causes weight gain and make tiredness even worse.
