By Joanne Graves

Are you excessively tired? Can’t seem to find the energy to complete daily tasks? It’s time to rearrange your priorities and examine your health. Keep reading to discover the culprits of your incessant yawning and dozing off throughout the day:

You Skip Exercise to Save Energy
After a long day at work, you come home and take a short nap. You may think that what you are doing is wise, as your aim may be to conserve your energy. However, it is doing the opposite. You are not conserving energy, but making yourself more tired. You need to exercise to remain healthy, active, and energetic. Start slowly by exercising for 20 minutes three days per week and increase as desired.
You Do Not Drink Water
When you are out and about each day, you may forget to drink enough water. Roughly 60 percent of the body is made of water. Drinking water maintains the body’s fluid balance, which helps transport nutrients in the body, regulate body temperature, digest food, and more. When the muscles don’t have enough water, they get tired. Your health will drastically improve if you start drinking at least eight glasses of water each day.
You Do Not Eat Enough Iron
People with an iron deficiency feel irritable, weak, and sluggish most of the day. They are unable to maintain their focus, which will take away from their work, as productivity levels will be low. Eating foods high in iron such as kidney beans, nuts, tofu, green leafy veggies, and peanut butter will give you the energy boost you need!
