Here are some reasons why you may be constantly feeling worn out, without knowing about them. Mind you, these habits are actually draining your energy.

1.Not drinking enough water: Water is one of the most important elements of our lives. Studies suggest if you are dehydrated, you will feel tired. When your body is dehydrated, it leads to reduced blood volume, thereby slowing the speed at which oxygen and essential nutrients reach your body.

2. Not consuming Iron : Iron deficiency not only makes you feel tired but also irritable. And the reason remains the same – less iron in the body means less oxygen travels to your muscles and cells. Less iron intake could also lead to anemia. The good part is that you find iron in a host of foods – kidney beans, eggs, green vegetables, nuts and tofu.

3. Skipping breakfast: We all know how important breakfast is to fuel you and kickstart your metabolism. Skip breakfast and chances are pretty high that you will feel tired all day long. Perfect breakfast is a combination of carbs, proteins and good fat. Try having 2 slices of whole wheat break with a glass of skimmed milk for breakfast and feel the difference.

4. Missing workouts when tired: You go to the gym or for a run only when you wake up feeling fresh. A good workout releases happy hormones that makes you feel energetic and happy to face the day.
5. Working too hard: Are you constantly worrying about work assignments and stressing about ways to climb up the corporate ladder, spending excess hours at work and ignoring every other aspects of your life? You are in for some trouble. Try and set realistic goals that do not take a toll on your body. Don’t forget, stress is the biggest silent killer.
6. Drinking before bed? Having a glass of wine or your favourite scotch may sound like a brilliant way to end your day but it can backfire your sound sleep plan. Experts suggest that it interferes with your sound sleep by creating a sudden surge in your adrenaline system. This will more likely make you wake up at night.
7. Addicted to your phone, emails? Are you constantly checking your phone and inbox for new messages? Too much screen time throws your system off track and interferes with your sleep, making you feel lethargic.
8. Can’t live without caffeine? We all know coffee keeps you awake but you don’t need too much caffeine in your system. It can seriously disrupt your sleeping as well as waking up hours.
