Feel Rough & Not Sure Why? Consider These Solutions
Our bodies are highly complex organisms, and sometimes, we don’t know what’s wrong with them. It might be that you wake up and feel dizzy because you’re tired or because you stood up too quickly, or, it could indicate something that needs checking immediately. Of course, this truth is not there to make you worry, as going in for a Doctor’s check up can easily help you identify the issue ahead of time, provided you have enough foresight to.
It’s also true that sometimes, we feel rough without really knowing why. It might be that we feel quite lethargic due to a bad diet, or because we’re overweight, or because we’re sitting in a relatively unventilated environment. It would be impossible to calculate all of the complex potential causes for a certain issue, but there are some efforts you can take towards making sure that the most common of those aren’t a factor.
Of course, we would first recommend that before you apply any advice in this article, that you seek medical attention if you feel it’s necessary, or if you’re unsure. A doctor will be able to help you most of all. From there, you may consider:
It might just be that you’re exhausted, and are used to feeling exhausted, so tiredness doesn’t register as immediate anymore. This is often the case when people adapt to a lack of sleep, such as when raising an infant baby, or traveling around the world for work. To remedy this, set a standard time for when you head to bed, and make sure you stick to it. Give yourself at least eight hours a day. If you need to, catch a nap in the middle of the day if you can. Restoring your sleep cycle may be the most essential priority you have.
Your Posture Isn’t Great
Bad posture can often lead to us feeling lethargic, and it can harm the ease in which we digest our food and stay regular. It can be helpful to visit Chiropractors in this light, as maintaining a constant degree of personal care may only be possible if a professional is able to identify and remedy certain joint or mobility issues you have. Little measures like this can truly make a difference in how capable and strong you are, and in how supported your good posture is.
Your Diet Is Wanting
It may be that your diet is wanting. Good hydration and nutritious food is key towards helping your energy levels sustain themselves over the day. Try and eliminate the constant snacking, the overreliance on caffeine and even a regular nightcap, because these habits can leave us more tired and lethargic than we realize. Meal prep can help us easily gain all the vegetables we need at work instead of relying on fast food, and making sure that we hydrate at least 2-3L of water a day is key to keeping our bodies ticking over and healthy. If you feel rough, try a healthy meal and glass of water. It could be that you feel restored thanks to that effort.
With this advice, we hope you can avoid feeling rough and not knowing the cause. These foundational efforts can often help tremendously. Remember, however, that medical attention should always be on the table.
