4 Reasons Your Energy is Totally Zapped

By Genevieve Cunningham

Energy is often hard to come by. When we're young -- kids and teenagers -- it seems like we have all the energy in the world. Too much. As we get older, it feels as though a little bit of energy disappears with every year that passes. It's frustrating to say the least. But sometimes, the reasons behind our lack of energy are a lot more simple than we realize. And even better, there are often things that we can do to actually stop the energy loss. If you've had enough of being tired all the time, take a look at these reasons your energy is zapped and some tips to get it back again.

Your Sleep is Off Routine

If you're not following a sleep routine, you're eventually going to feel exhausted. Our bodies need and crave routine. If you're waking up in the middle of the night or you're unable to fall asleep, your routine needs work. Focus on correcting your routine, and you may get better sleep and more energy as a result.

You Have Kids

OK, let's be real. Kids will take every ounce of energy you have and then still demand more. Kids are just tiring. The good news is that the exhausted phase of kids passes. They do get easier -- or at least dealing with their sleep gets easier. In the meantime, enlist the help of family and friends to take the kids and let you sleep without constant disruption.

You're Stressed

Stress can make it hard to sleep. Whether it's because of the constant chatter happening in your brain or the aches and pains that come with stress, your only chance at better sleep is to lower the stress that you're experiencing. Use exercise, hot showers, massage, or therapy to help lower your daily stress and improve both health and sleep in the process.

You're Sick

Sometimes when we're sick, it's obvious. We have fever, and we ache, and we can't keep anything down. But other times, the illness is more subtle. Maybe you only have a stuffy nose -- but the exhaustion that accompanies it is brutal. Make sure that you're keeping yourself well with a strong immune system, plenty of rest, and regular trips to the doctor. The healthier you keep yourself, the less energy your body has to waste, and the more energized you'll feel on the daily.

It's probably not much of an exaggeration to say that we all need more energy. We do! We're all so busy all the time -- it's no wonder we're lacking enough energy to make it through the day. Protect your body and boost your health, and your energy will slowly make a comeback in your life.
