  • 2. • Too exhausted to get out of bed to face the day? Most people blame it on insomnia and disrupted sleep, which may well be the case, but sleeplessness is just one of the many factors that turns you into a grumpy gnome at the thought of getting started each day. • Sleeplessness could be sign of stress, sleep apnea and/or depression, and persistent, relapsing fatigue after six to eight hours of sleep could indicate an undiagnosed disease, such as diabetes, hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid), cancers, or congestive heart failure, among others.
  • 3. Here may be one of the reasons why you feel tired throughout the day:
  • 4. Mental stress • Emotional stress and frustration can leave you physically exhausted. Under stress, adrenalin peaks and raises heart rate and blood pressure, tenses muscles and makes breathing rapid and shallow. The hormone cortisol stimulates the release of energy, flooding the body with glucose, fatty acids and amino acids. Prolonged stress, however, forces the body to cope with this heightened state of physical stress, making it collapse as soon as your guard drops.
  • 5. Pollution • Air pollution, both outdoor and indoor, makes you lethargic, forgetful and lowers productivity. Apart from irritating the airways and lungs and causing asthma and lung diseases, PM10 (fine particle matter, dust, soot) and Ozone destroy red blood cells and lower the body’s oxygen-carrying capacity, starving the brain, muscles and organs of oxygen. • Among the indoor air pollutants that cause fatigue are secondhand smoke that tends to cling on linen, carpeting and upholstery, carbon monoxide that depletes oxygen levels in the body and starves muscles and vital organs of sustenance, and volatile organic compounds.
  • 6. Anemia • Fatigue is the most common symptom of anemia, which occurs when your body does not have enough hemoglobin – the iron-containing protein in red blood cells — to carry oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body. Even mild anemia makes you tired, sluggish, forgetful and absentminded
  • 7. Depression • Fatigue is a major symptom of depressive disorders, with most people affected different degrees of lethargy, easy fatigability, and marked lack of energy. The lethargy is likely to be accompanied with feelings of low self worth, nervousness, sleeplessness, overeating or appetite loss and excessive worrying.
