Are you always sleepy, constantly working or struggling to get a good nights rest? According to the Center of Disease Control (CDC) around 15.3% of women and 10.1 percent of men are constantly sleepy and restless. Tiredness can be bad for many different things other than just a bad job at work or poor productivity. Good sleep is important because around 1 in 25 adults fall asleep behind the wheel at some point. About 72,000 crashes and 44,000 injuries each year are a result of drowsy driving, and that’s not to mention the estimated 6000 fatal crashes caused by drowsy drivers. Everyone feels tired at some point in lives, whether it’s from a late night out, staying up to watch movies or shows, playing video games, or even putting in extra hours at work. Often you can find the reason to your drowsiness but sometimes you just cant put your finger on it.
Well, the first and foremost reason is lack of sleep. Surely if you don’t get enough sleep you will more than likely be tired and gloomy. Also, getting too much sleep can make you feel tired, just like overcharging a battery, then the battery ceases to work. A poor diet can also make you sluggish. Another reason for your sluggishness is not getting enough nutrients and proteins to keep you going. And finally, a major factor in people being sleepy all the time is stress. Stress is the second biggest factor in a drowsy person besides hardly getting sleep in the first place. A little bit of stress can actually be healthy, making us more alert and being able to perform whilst being put on the spot. Examples of good stress are interviews and speeches, but don’t work your self up or else you may lose precious sleep and that can cause other major problems.
