Why do I feel so tired in the afternoon?

Post by keelhauled on Sun Jun 22, 2008 11:32 am

So last night I had decent amount of sleep. Fell asleep around midnight and woke up around 8am. But around 5pm I felt a sudden tiredness. So I decided to take a nap and I ended waking up at 9. This pattern has been happening the past few days. Its as if I just feel exhausted in the afternoon and I ended taking ridiculously long naps. And I don't why. Can it be stress or anxiety Or does my body need 12hours of sleep !!!

Low energy level (sound like Dragon ball Z term :D ) could be a lot of things .

Maybe you don't eat enough fruits & vegetables/ don't drink enough/ don't have any training or playing. Sleeping too much is definitely taking your energy away, sleep 7 hours it's ideal, even if you'r training.

Or maybe you don't have good strategies for your energy.
ask yourself, Do you have patterns that regularly take your energy away,
Some of the energies "investment" actions are giving you even more energy and Vividness.
Desperation is a necessary ingredient to learning anything, or creating anything. Period.
If you ain't desperate at some point, you ain't interesting.

You should take a 10 to 45 minute nap. that should really boost your energy level! when you get tired, it has alot to do with the temperature of your body so keep that in mind too!
Do what thy manhood bids thee do, from none but self expect applause; He noblest lives and noblest dies who makes and keeps his self-made laws.

Are you taking (excessive) amounts of caffeine or similar stimulants
Are you walking up at the same time every day
Avoid the stimulant/exhaustion loop, where you feel tired so you drink a bunch of caffeine, then your sleep cycle is screwed up, so when you crash and go back to sleep, you wake up exhausted, so you drink more caffeine....etc.
You need to do a reset. Tell yourself you'll wake up at a certain time no mater what, no matter how much (or little sleep) you had that night. If anything, you can go to bed a little earlier that night.
