Fatigue and Nutrition: An Eye Opener
When was the last time you woke up in the morning feeling refreshed? You can tell if you’ve had enough sleep because you aren’t hitting the snooze alarm about eight times before you finally manage to sit up. When you are well rested in fact, your body won’t mind getting up to an alarm at all. It will be recharged and ready to take on the day.
The problem is that for most of us, we function at a level of sleep deprivation that doctors consider to be at a high risk for developing physiological and psychological (or emotional) complications. There are a number of things that can negatively impact how much sleep you are getting each day. Some of them are definitely behavioral while others are pre-existing health conditions or complications. Would you believe that some of it can be caused by poor nutrition as well?
According to Discovery Health there are ten signs you might be sleep deprived:
- Impaired ability to handle stress.
- Poor memory.
- Difficulties with concentration.
- Increased appetite (usually for high carbohydrate foods).
- Vision problems or “tired eyes”.
- Bad decision making.
- Impaired motor skills.
- Irritability and relationship troubles.
- High blood pressure, high glucose or other hypertensive issues.
- Mood swings or feeling of low mood or depression.
