Do you ever wake up in the morning and feel as though you hadn’t slept at all? Do you wake up at 2 AM or 3 AM and lie awake, unable to go back to sleep because you’re trying to solve the world’s problems? I know I have…many times! And I’m not alone. So many of my sisters write to me asking, “Why am I always so tired even after sleeping 8 hours a night?” or “What can I do to stop feeling exhausted by the middle of the day?” or “Why do I wake up in the middle of the night and feel so stressed I can’t fall back asleep?”
I hear you. For the longest time, I was tired of being tired. It reached the point where I was beginning to just accept that when I woke up in the morning, I would not feel rested. And if I wasn’t tired first thing in the morning, I would at some point in the day.
But was this the way I wanted to live my life? Is it how you want to live yours? So what can we do about it?
To begin with, it’s important to recognize there are a multitude of factors that are behind our feeling tired all the time, despite our best efforts. So the first thing I want you to do is, stop blaming yourself! Immediately after you do that, make a promise to yourself to adopt steps that will help take care of YOU!
Are you ready to start feeling more energized?
I searched the experts for clues on how to kick up my energy, experimented on my own, and feel these are some of the best ones to start with. They are working for me—let me know what you think once you try them?
Change your sleep preparation habits. You have probably heard that adopting healthful sleep habits can improve quality of your sleep, and that’s true.
