3 Reasons You Constantly Feel Tired No Matter How Much Sleep You Get


Do you always feel like you’re functioning at a low battery level? Every day, you feel extremely tired, no matter how much sleep you got the night before. Why? Why does this always happen?! Tiredness and this feeling of fatigue can be bad for your health as they stop you from being active and force you to just lie down and rest.

To help cure your fatigue, you need to find the cause of it. As such, here are some reasons you might feel tired, even if you sleep well every night:


Sedentary Lifestyle

If you work at a desk, then you may be a victim of a sedentary lifestyle. This means you spend most of your life sitting down and not moving around. When you get home, you may have no energy to do anything other than sit on the sofa and watch TV. Aside from causing plenty of health problems like back pain and weight gain, this lifestyle also leads to chronic tiredness. When you do nothing, you never get those bursts of adrenaline that you get when you’re active. Your heart rate never gets stimulated, so you end up feeling sluggish all the time. Fixing this is a simple case of getting up and moving around! Try and exercise regularly throughout the week, and walk around the office every hour or so to prevent yourself from being too sedentary at work!


Adrenal Fatigue

This is a condition that affects a huge percentage of modern adults. The basics of it are that you have a hormonal imbalance inside your body. We have things called adrenal glands, and they secrete loads of different hormones. If you’re highly stressed, or have a poor diet, then you can disrupt the way these glands produce hormones. As a result, you can create less energy regulating hormones, which causes this constant feeling of tiredness. To fix this, you can try multiple different things. There are supplements like adrenal balance that help to regulate the hormones produced by your adrenal glands and prevent the imbalance that causes fatigue. Alternatively, you can consider changing your diet and finding ways to lower your stress levels.


You may know anemia as a condition where you don’t produce enough red blood cells. This can cause extreme tiredness, along with weak bones and a difficulty concentrating. Anemia is typically caused by a lack of oxygen getting to your different cells around your body. It’s a fairly serious problem in that you should definitely get checked out if you think you have it. Basically, you need to fix it by improving your diet. Eat things that have a lot of iron and vitamin B12 in them, as both things are linked to red blood cell production. Of course, you can always take a dietary supplement as well, particularly if you’re a vegetarian as a lot of foods high in these things are meats.

Are you getting eight hours of sleep every night yet still feel tired the next day? The chances are you could have one of these three problems.

  1. I do not sleep well so anything that might be able to help I am all for! I do a lot of work in the computer also so I know that I can be very sedentary. Lately I’ve been exercising quite a bit to help with that.

  2. Good to know! Honestly, I’d sleep so much better if I didn’t have to share a bed with my husband. He’s a restless sleeper who is always shifting or snoring. Ugh. If we had space, I’d so be open to separate bedrooms.

  3. This is wonderful information to know. It’s so important to ensure that we’re eating the right foods and taking the right supplements. To ensure the proper rest.

  4. I have always needed a lot of sleep, and I think my thyroid is a little off balance. Definitely something I’ve been meaning to get looked at.

  5. It’s really important to have yourself checked as well so you know if there’s something else going on. I think these are factors that people should consider and watch out for.

  6. I did WHOLE30, which was a huge diet change, and it totally altered my energy levels. I think much of my fatigue is related to food.

  7. I didn’t realize that anemia could cause so much fatigue. My doctor said that my iron levels are lower than normal but not quite anemic but I am sure it doesn’t help with how tired I am all the time.

  8. I really feel like the sedentary lifestyle effects tiredness the most and is probably the most common! I live in Wisconsin and I feel like during the winter, especially when it snows and its hard to go to the gym when its pitch dark outside, I start getting so lazy and sleepy. The day is shorter and its harder to get things done. Being stuck indoors with less to do really effects this.

  9. This is why it’s also important to be active and keep moving so that you’ll feel more energized throughout the day instead of feeling sleepy and tired all the time!

  10. I always sleep well and lucky dont suffer from any of the above. But its good to get checked out if the lack of sleep is happening to someone.

  11. This post really gave me a lot to think about. It’s easy to neglect the importance of getting enough sleep.

  12. Years ago I suffered from anemia and was always tired. When my doctor diagnosed it from a blood test, I was put on iron supplements which solved my problem. I haven’t been getting enough sleep lately and I realize it’s because I work on my laptop in bed or watch TV late into the night. I am going to try to keep both of them out of my bedroom to get into a better routine with more sleep.

  13. Wow, interesting. My sister as a job where she works in an office and tired all the time. I have to share with her, this she didn’t know.
