I am 27 years old; I have no energy & tired constantly. I have to push myself to do things around the house & outside. The moment I hit the couch I don’t want to get up and do anything anymore and the moment I hit the bed, I’m out like a light! I sleep the whole night (I get 8 hours) & I still don’t want to wake up in the morning. I have never been a morning person but it doesn’t explain the tiredness throughout the day! I eat healthy from time to time, not every day, and do exercise when I have the energy. I can’t motivate myself to exercise since I’m so tired! I don’t have any weight gain….just wondering what’s wrong & what I can do to fix it!
I am just 14 years old and have felt most of the effects described by everyone else, for about a year now. I go to bed at 9:30, but I used to listen to my iPod until around 11. I wake up at 6am to get a school coach, and come back home at around 5pm. I have a few stresses, but who at this age doesn’t? I usually have a normal-sized breakfast, but I usually skip out lunch because of things like basketball and swimming, and I only have some crisps and a chocolate bar. I have a normal-sized dinner. I doubt many people in school feel the same way as I do. Many thanks..
Both of you admit that your diets are not the best. It is very important to eat a healthy, balanced diet and to keep your blood sugar levels stable throughout the day if you want to avoid being tired all the time.
It’s hard at first, but once you see benefits you’ll probably find that it’s worth making some changes.
Try eating small meals throughout the day and see if that helps. Some people find that their energy increases when they reduce the size of their meals but eat every three to four hours.
Choose whole grains, complex carbohydrates, lean meats, fruits and vegetables and try not to overdo sweets. They will definitely affect your energy level.
