Ever woken up just to feel morning fatigue? You keep yawing and it’s until noon before your body realizes that you’re awake, you are not alone in this struggle. Morning fatigue is caused by a wide variety of factors from short sleep to sleeping in an uncomfortable position.
It’s the body’s way of telling you that there is insufficient rest or that there’s an underlying health challenge or as a result of medication. Whatever the case may be, getting a doctors opinion to rule out the possibility of a health problem is essential. Once that has been done you can then proceed to do any of the following.
Just make sure you move your body. When you wake in the morning, there is the tendency for you to walk around like a robot especially if you didn’t get enough sleep. Doing that would ensure you remain sleepy and tired for the most part of the mornings. Instead, get moving! Physical activity boosts energy levels. That’s probably why your class teacher in nursery school would ask you to keep jumping if she finds you sleeping off. It actually does work!
Just to rule out the event of dehydration. Dehydration drains you of your energy, leaving you unusually tired. Dehydration also lowers your concentration level.
Get to bed early.
Early to bed, early to rise… is very true. Getting enough sleep is one sure way to reduce morning fatigues. Also, maintain a steady sleep pattern. In the same vein, over sleeping leaves you more tired. For adults, it’s advisable to get at least seven to eight hours daily.
Start your day with a healthy breakfast.
Don’t skip your breakfast, its unhealthy to do so. When you are hungry in the morning, it is very easy for fatigue to set in. No matter how busy you are, do make time to have your breakfast and make sure it is a healthy option.
