What can you do when you are tired but sleep won't help?
We all do something "unhealthy" now and then.
We eat too much, drink too much, work too much or don’t get enough sleep.
Eventually, our bad lifestyle choices will come and bite us in the butt, and we start to feel tired and fatigued. But: what happens when lifestyle choices aren’t the problem and sleep doesn't help?
Start with Sleep
Getting enough sleep often works to combat fatigue.
Be sure to go to bed at the same time every night.
Set up a routine that is the same before you go to bed – switch off all electronic devices in the home, dim the lights and do something calming that doesn’t require much brain power for one or two hours before bed.
This should help you to fall asleep faster and to have a better night’s sleep.
The next step is to wake up at the same time each morning, no matter how late you went to bed. The body thrives on routine – the more set your sleep routines are, the easier it will be to maintain them.
