Many people are suffering from low energy, fatigue and sleepiness and (according to many experts), the rea-son is that we are experiencing an epidemic of fatigue. Many of us complain of never waking up refreshed or of just passing the days tired and exhausted or of working hard all week and not being able to rise from the so-fa on our days off.

The first reason we're tired is quite simply that we don't get enough sleep. A 24 hour society means there's ever-increasing pressure on our time, and for many youngsters the thing to go is not overtime, marathon of movies, it's a good night's sleep. we need to prioritize sleep and give it its proper place in our lives.

We don't do enough, by which we mean, we don't do enough physically. We all lead more inactive lifestyles, But we also have all sorts of things to take our mental focus. That means we're all physically under active but mentally over active. If you're the sort of person who spends a lot of time slumped in front of screens, whether TV, PC, iPad or games console and very little time in the great outdoors, you may feel tired a lot of the time. The answer is to schedule some movement into your day. Take a walk at lunchtime, hit the gym once in a while, any movement will help you to clear the mental fog that makes you sleepy even in the middle of the day.

We eat badly. People are prone to poor eating habits that leave them feeling tired and lacking energy. First off, make sure you eat breakfast and then eat light meals every three or four hours. That will make sure your blood sugar levels remain stable, and ward off the crippling fatigue that can come when they dive. But 'light' is key. People often eat too heavily at lunchtime, which means they become lethargic as their bodies expend energy digesting big meals.

We don't have enough time for others. Getting some positive human connections in your life stops you from feeling sleepy. That was the conclusion of a study published in the Journal of Health and Social Behavior, which found that altruism (belief in acting for others good) can boost happiness, life satisfaction, self-esteem, your sense of control over life, physical health and mood, all of which give you back the energy that stops fa-tigue in its tracks.
