Could this be why we’re always tired?
You’ve slept for eight hours straight.. Yet you’re busy yawning al day.. guilty? This could be the reason why.
Not enough exercise
With those cold days approaching, we usually leave home and return while it’s still dark outside. We allow ourselves to stay indoors with these cold temperatures. A relaxed night indoors with Netflix and your favourite chocolate bar.. How could we resist? Our bodies need exercise, even in winter! Try working out at least twice a week or spend at least one hour outside everyday.
Stress is the number one cause of insomnia #nosuprisethere. Stress can keep us up worrying all night, which of course isn’t very good for your health. Take some time to have a major me-moment and de-stress before going to bad! And: Meditating might help too!
Big fan of those typical winter-dishes? They’re delicious but filled with carbs and sugar! And taking into account we tend to lean towards comfort foods in general in winter. The sugars and carbs can put you in an after-diner dip, this can make you feel less energetic. Try eating more protein and veggies for more energy!
Not enough sunlight
The lack of sunlight can be a strong influence on our mood. Because days are shorter we get less vitamin D. Try going outside more and bask in the sunlight. Also: A great excuse to buy that new winter coat 😉
1o more minutes…
Pressing the snooze button over and over again isn’t a great start to a well rested day.. Try placing your alarm clock at the far end of your bed, this way you’ll have to get up! Take a nice long shower and treat yourself to a nice breakfast. We bet you’ll feel better in no-time!
You’re always on your phone before going bed
We all do it.. check our phones before we go to bed. But did you know the light of your phone can mess with your internal time clock? Try leaving your phone alone for at least half an hour before going to bed. You’ll get used to it in no time!
