Feel sleepy most of the time


Date: 19 Nov 2010   Posted By: Kiran     Group: Health    Category: Nutrition   

I always feel sleepy. In the morning I never get up my own.

I used to take at least 7 hours sleep (sometimes 6 hrs) but after getting up in the morning I don not feel fresh.

After sometime I am ok but when I come to office, 1 hour later again I feel sleepy. And on the top of it, in the afternoon after lunch that is a critical situation for me in the office because that is my working time & I am in sleepy mood. I am working full time.

Please suggest.

Most of the people are so tired in the morning that they struggle to get out of bed. Let me tell some possible reasons to feel always sleepy and tired in bed and its remedies.

• Bad sleeping circumstances with old and uncomfortable bed, pillows and room conditions. To avoid these make you're sleeping room and bed everything neat and fresh. Then you can get a good enough sleep.

• Waking up more times during sleep hours, it is not a complete sleep. To avoid this, sleep at right time without any unwanted thoughts. Don't eat any heavy meal before your sleep. Have light meal or only fruits and limited quantity of water in between 7.00 to 8.00 pm. And wait for 2 to 2.5 hours to sleep. It will help you to avoid waking up in between sleep.

• If you are overweight or obese, your body has to work more time to fulfill daily functions. Especially your heart will undergo overload. Then your daily functions will get delay and cause to tiredness. Focus on your diet and try to have a controlled weight by avoiding junk foods.

• If you are on medication, it will make you drowsy. So consult a Doctor to get suggestion to avoid this problem.

• If you are working most of the time in offices, car, home etc, it may make you tired because of lack of fresh air which gives you vitamin D to boost your energy level. So you should take couple of minutes break to do stretchable exercise for your hand, legs, neck, hip etc and have fresh breathing for some time during your working time.

• If you are not doing regular exercise at least 30 minutes you will be lazy and will have a low energy level. Exercise is very strict just like your daily food and while exercise more, it will produce good hormones in your body and provide a good mood and high energy for you. Believe me that practicing yoga will make you substantial changes on your body and take away your tiredness and all problems.

• If you have any job pressure and money problem or other stress, it will affect you very badly in your sleep. Try to fix the problems and stay away from them. It will provide essential continuous sleep and avoid sleep feel.

• If you are watching TV too much time, especially late night, you will be tired, so practice meditation for 20 to 30 minutes if possible.

• Change your eating habits and add fresh nutritious fruits and raw vegetables in your diet. It will offer a good lazy less mood and good health.

• Smoking and alcohol consuming are not good practices for good health and well being. You will sleep too much because of alcohol and smoking interrupts your sleep. So you will feel tired and drowsy as well. So avoid these.

• Oversleeping itself is a main reason to feel sleepy and tiredness. So use alarm clock to fix your sleeping time and limit you sleep. Go to bed early and Get up early. Don't sleep after 6 am. Avoid bed coffee or tea. Drink 2 to 3 glasses of water after waking up and do soorya-namaskar or other effective exercise after 20 to 30 minutes. You will a good mood and pleasant feeling

Thanks
Babu

Have a good exercise in the Morning or Evening. Drink lot of juices and water. Especially drink Musambi juice. Sleep deeply in night. Avoid Afternoon sleep. Don't eat heavily any time. Diet should be half food, much water and empty space. Be aware of what you eat and drink. Watch comedy movies and scenes and laugh if you have time in a day. All the best.

Hello,

I think your brain is full with work load and pressure. So first you must relax. Take a break from office and forget about office work.

Go for a film or a restaurant, eat your favorite dish and treat yourself with your friends. In this way you will free from tension and you can start your work in fresh mood.

Do 20 mints exercise including push-ups, jogging in one place or buy a trade-mill and run for 15 mints everyday.

Drink fruit juice and milk for extra energy and be in fresh mood.

The secret to rise early is to "say yourself before going to bed that I WILL WAKE UP AT 6 AM IN MORNING EVERYDAY ANYHOW."
This is bit hypnotizing yourself but it really works. I do it when I have any important work to do in early morning. You must feel while say it to your brain. When you will say it to yourself visualize a clock ticking at 6 am.

Try it once.See the result.Tell me it worked or not.
