I have no Energy- Why am I always SO tired? *FOUND OUT WHY*
Hello everyone! So I uploaded a new video on my Youtube channel to address a challenge that many of us are facing every day of our lives. I’m very sure there are many people out there who often wonder why they are always feeling energy and sleep deprived on a daily basis and feeling consistently tired in the morning. “Why is my energy so low?” Fatigue is not a good feeling and it makes us feel unproductive due to stasis. Many people tend to ignore the importance of what we put into our bodies, and are quick to run to solutions that involve consuming unhealthy amounts of caffeinated coffee, energy drinks or even taking energy pills. I am here to tell you that there are reasons for the causes of fatigue. One of the most obvious for lack of energy can be a deficiency of iron and men and women. But it actually goes deeper than that. So in this segment, I’ll be sharing with you what causes lack of energy and how to increase energy overall.
I cannot stress this one enough. Most people do not drink enough water and I notice all the time that if I don’t drink at least 250Mls of water before going to bed or either the moment after I wake up, I’m always waking up tired feeling like crap and my body feels bogged down throughout the day. Sort of like a car running on an empty gas tank with a loss of power. Suffering from random inexplicable headaches and migraines is another noticeable sign that you MUST drink more water. I believe the quality of my sleep suffers as well, thus it feels a lot more of an inhibited sleep rather than a deep sleep. Most times I can help alleviate this feeling when I drink an entire bottle of water as soon as I wake up in the morning. Not to mention, there was a very interesting and informative article that I came across on lifehack.org that explains 8 amazing benefits of drinking water on an empty stomach after waking up.
You guys should definitely check that out because the information is actually quite mind-blowing in the sense that it mentions things that would normally fly over our heads. And last but not least for hydration, I also want to mention the importance of drinking Apple Cider Vinegar. There are NUMEROUS benefits of drinking Apple Cider Vinegar, with a few of the most astounding being that it helps the body maintain a healthy Alkaline PH level. It also regulates blood sugar levels, helps promote detoxification of the liver and other vital organs, and accelerates weight loss! With that being said, now you can see why Apple Cider Vinegar can be a magic formula to help rid energy deprivation. I would start off by taking 2 tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar every single morning on an EMPTY stomach. It does over 20 positive benefits for you right off the bat. ) If you’re interested in trying the Apple Cider Vinegar, I recommend the Braggs brand which you can find by clicking the photo below….
#2 Good Diet: This one is not at all an easy fix, but you can slowly start to make sure that you ALWAYS eat right before going to bed! Remember, as you go to sleep when your digestive system is active it will most definitely disturb your sleep quality. Especially if you eat foods that are heavy in dairy and sugar. Sugar is probably the worst thing that you can eat shortly before going to bed because it actually causes your blood to thicken the next day which also leads to fatigue. Also, other terrible foods that irritate your intestines or can give you acid reflux includes, (super greasy foods, acidic or spicy foods). If you just HAVE to eat these things, at least give your body SEVERAL hours of buffer time before going to bed.
I would also highly suggest a 30-day juice cleanse or a very effective schedule based colon cleanse as well.
#3 Sleep Hygiene:
Good sleep habits include not eating or using your phone, browsing the internet or watching TV in bed.
One thing that a lot of people don’t know is that the blue light emitted by screens on cell phones, computers, tablets, and television restrains the production of melatonin. This is the hormone that controls our sleep/wake cycles or circadian rhythm. In actuality, reducing melatonin makes it harder to fall and stay asleep. Sleep experts say that your bed should only be used for 2 purposes only: Sleep and Sex. Otherwise, your mind will do the opposite and associate your bed with other fun activities that will prevent your body from naturally switching into sleep mode the moment you get into bed. You should try to go to bed and wake up around the SAME exact time throughout the week, INCLUDING weekends! That way, your body gets into a healthy routine and your brain automatically recognizes the set times for your internal clock. Staying up until 3 am one night and then trying to go to bed at 11 pm the following night and then waking up at 8 am just isn’t going to cut it. It will never magically fix your tiredness because you got only one night of proper sleep. This will lead to feeling bogged down and fatigued like I had mentioned earlier, due to having an irregular sleep schedule. Google, “Sleep Hygiene” for more info on good behavioral things you can change to help improve your sleep!
Trust me; this is ten times more important than it sounds. Try to get as much sunlight as possible during the day, especially in the morning to help you wake up. In fact, there was a very informative article that I came across on anonhq.com titled, “Oxford Scientist Confirms Starting Work, School before 10 AM is Torture” By Vandita. Here’s an important excerpt I wanted to share from the article…
“Dr. Paul Kelley, an honorary clinical research associate at Oxford University’s Sleep and Circadian Neuroscience Institute and one of the UK’s leading sleep experts, says forcing adults and adolescents to start work before 10 am is tantamount to torture, leaving their bodies exhausted and stressed as a result of sleep deprivation.”
“Your liver and your heart have different patterns and you’re asking them to shift two or three hours. We cannot change our 24-hour rhythms. You cannot learn to get up at a certain time. Your body will be attuned to sunlight and you’re not conscious of it because it reports to hypothalamus, not sight.”
And this ladies and gentlemen explains why we are lacking energy on a daily basis. Our bodies were naturally made to wake up with the sun. The rays of sunlight that are rich in vitamin D are supposed to pierce through the windows of our bedrooms and make contact with our skin for our bodies to absorb. The problem is that many of us are waking up when the moon is still out when we should be waking up when the sun itself is wide awake. Our bodies produce neurochemicals that helps us regulate our circadian rhythms in response to exposure to sunlight. If you are an avid computer or mobile device user, I strongly recommend a software program called Flux which can be downloaded for your PC. And an app called Twilight for Android. These apps help adjust the color of light given off by electronic screens to mimic the exact time of daylight from sunrise to sunset based on your time zone, rather than 1 24hour default illumination of unnatural, artificial blue light which has been proven to interfere with our sleep patterns.
Even better, if you are super serious about improving your sleep hygiene and have already taken note of everything I previously mention, I very strongly recommend checking out a product that I bought for myself and a close relative made by Phillips called, The Phillips Wake-Up Light. This product includes what is known as, “Sunrise Simulation” which is explained via the website as followed….
“Inspired by nature’s sunrise, the wake-up light brightness gradually increases within 30 minutes from dim yellow until your room is filled with bright yellow light. This process of increasing light intensity stimulates your body to wake up naturally. By the time light has filled the room your chosen natural sound completes the wake-up experience, leaving you ready for the day ahead.”
This product also has light therapy for improving your sleep, energy and well-being and many other amazing features. I’ll also include a link in the video description for this as well if you’re interested.
So to close off this segment, I hope you all found this helpful and beneficial. Now you know why you have no Energy and why you are always SO tired. If you have ruled out all of these factors and are still having problems, you just may be a victim of sleep apnea which calls for a much more serious solution. Please if you could like and share this video as much as you can because I feel like sleep and energy deprivation is something that 90% of the population struggles with and we have to find solutions.

So with that being said, thank you very much for your time and thank you for watching another edition of Grey Pill Health. Until next time!
