Do you take frequent naps?

Recommended Posts

Lately, it's been really hard for me to sustain my energy for 12 hours straight. It doesn't matter if it's after sleeping a night for 6 hours or even 12 hours. It becomes a real struggle especially after eating a meal to keep my head fully awake. Do you guys experience this a lot? How do you combat it?

 

I thought perhaps if I get into better shape physically that I could withstand the day longer, but I think that would require even more sleep to repair the microscopic muscle tears.

Coffee doesn't even work for me anymore! :(

Ive been recently taking melatonine, it's what your brain produces that makes you sleepy, it's like $1 at the dollar store(duh :P) and it works great. Just pop one and 15 minutes later relax your mind and you'll pass out. It's really nice.

A friend of mine also uses melatonin. Do you feel that you have more energy now throughout the day?

No, I just don't feel sleepy, if you're lacking energy then taking a multi-vitamin, good eating habits, drinking plenty of water, and doing occasional 30 minute exercise come into play.

Sleepy throughout the day? I usually equate sleepy with lack of energy. And yes, I need to start exercising daily... that, and stretching. It's just a pain in the ass.

I equate lack of energy to being fatigued like when you're sick or depressed, you're not sleepy but you feel like a slump, almost lacking motivation, exercise is your best bet, plus a healthy eating life style will work wonders, the crap you eat just fills your arteries with clots and junk making your heart beat harder sapping a lot of your energy, do you take a fish oil or something for heart health?

Yep, I tend to take one fish oil a day with B complex, vitamin C, vitamin D, citracel calcium, and a multivitamin.

Careful not to over do it on vitamins, a lot of times a multi vitamin has everything you need, you can well not over dose but over due a certain vitamin and your body have a bad reaction.

Good call. You can actually overdose on Vitamin B. I should check the contents of it in my multivitamin.

Hey I fit that description at my age I have to take a nap every now and then. But I would say GC that you are just not getting a good restful sleep. Do you toss and turn a lot or do you sleep right through?
