5 reasons you might be feeling tired

Don’t feel bright-eyed and bushy tailed?

A winter of dark mornings means that beauty sleep becomes even more important. If you’re logging lots of beauty sleep but still feel beat, these five things could be to blame…

1. Dehydration – Aim to drink at least 6 to 8 water based drinks a day

2. Your Thyroid –  Hypothyroidism is when your thyroid, a gland that produces hormones to control sleepiness and hunger, is underactive. It’s a common cause of over-sleeping, but hard to pinpoint without a doctor.

3. Alcohol – While alcohol relaxes you initially, it can compromise your sleep quality – even if you are get the recommended 7-8 hours. The chemicals in alcohol disrupt your sleep cycle, preventing you from entering deep sleep.

4. Napping – A siesta can take the edge off an afternoon slump, but the duration of your downtime is crucial. It has been clinically proven that taking a nap for up to 30 minutes is revitalising, but any longer than that and you’ll end up in a REM cycle for an hour. Waking mid-cycle can leave you feeling groggy so if you want to nap for longer, have one lasting 90 minutes.

5 – Mineral Deficiency – Magnesium plays a vital role in maintaining blood glucose levels, muscle health and concentration so a lack of it can leave you feeling lethargic. Magnesium is found in leafy vegetables and nuts, but a supplement can help too.
