Do you find yourself hitting that 3pm slump every day? A significant amount of us will answer yes to this question. We’re all guilty of hitting that snooze button once or twice more than we should – but if this is becoming routine for you, you need to evaluate your daily habits. We have debunked the reasons to why you feel exhausted, see how many you can identify with.
- Sugar Consumption
Refined carbohydrates have become a normal part of our diets, but they could be having more of an effect on your body than you realise. When you hit that afternoon slump, many of us reach to junk foods such as crisps, milk chocolate and biscuits. Although you feel energised again very quickly, the slump comes back with a vengeance. Refined sugars are easily digested, meaning your blood sugars fall and you again feel fatigued – whole grains release energy slowly which gives you a constant flow of energy.
Taking a little time every day to exercise will give you a short-term energy boost. Not only that – you will sleep better.
Drinking too much coffee or fizzy drinks mean you get a quick kick that will not last. Consuming caffeine later in the day could have a negative effect on your sleep quality.
Even mild dehydration can have a negative effect on your energy levels – try drinking one glass of water every hour for a week and see how much better you feel.
