Live life awake

You could be tired for several reasons, like stress, overwork, bad diet, medical or emotional issues. The good news is, it’s a common problem that can often be treated with practical solutions.

Why Am I Always Tired?

For our hunter-gatherer ancestors, sleep was fluid. People slept when they were tired regardless of the time of day or night. They also slept together in large groups, giving them the assurance that they weren’t alone and were safe in the world. It’s a stark contrast to how we sleep now.

Men like to think that their bodies are machines, but even machines needs time to rest. Work requires us to be awake and present for a minimum of eight hours a day, which discourages naps. Modern devices like TVs and cell phones interfere with our sleep/wake cycles creating tiredness in men. Ignoring the fact that we’re not getting enough sleep or thinking you can make up for it on the weekend can lead to some long-term health issues like diabetes, heart disease, anxiety and depression.

Working with a professional to figure out the cause of why you’re tired can help get your sleep back into a regular schedule.

Tiredness Symptoms

You might be tired because of significant stress in your life, you’re overworking or exercising too much or too little, you have a bad diet, or you have underlying medical issues. Whatever the cause, being overly tired looks like the following:

01 Physical

  • Waking up often
  • Tossing and turning
  • Tired during the day
  • Teeth grinding
  • General aches and pains
  • Poor reflexes

02 Emotional & Behavioural

  • Feeling irritable or edgy
  • Concentration problems
  • Absentminded
  • Brain fog, trouble making decision
  • Lack of motivation

Feel. Better.

Feelings don't go away, so why not learn how to manage and resolve them better? It's called emotional intelligence, and it can improve your life immensely.

Treating Tiredness in Men

To help manage your fatigue, we’ll first investigate its root cause, which might be due to lifestyle factors, physical health conditions, or emotional issues, or a combination thereof. Often, simple lifestyle changes are one of the major ways to address tiredness. Getting exercise, fresh air, and natural sunlight is a good first step. Eliminating coffee, food, alcohol, smoking, and the use of your phone or computer just before bed can also help.

Managing any emotional issues that are keeping you up is important, too. Using counselling and coaching, we’ll work together to create a set of practical tools that you can apply at home to feel more awake in your own life.
