How to Stop Feeling So Tired Everyday.

Maybe you are someone who is always tired.  I have found a few things that can help you over the next couple weeks or months to help get you more awake throughout the day.  I struggle with being tired throughout the day, but these strategies I will share with you today are what help me become more awake each and everyday!
how to stop feeling so tired everyday
Jump right out of bed
The biggest problem I have had with being tired is that often times I will just lay in bed for a few minutes.  This only makes me want to stay in bed even longer and fall back to sleep.  Maybe you are in a similar place, or maybe you keep hitting snooze and wait till the last minute till wake up.  We have all been there.  It may be hard to jump straight out of bed upon waking up but I find that if you stop your alarm and stand up you will automatically feel more awake.

               Have a purpose
Have a purposeAs I am writing this section I want to sleep right now, I am literally 9.5/10 tired right now.  The only reason I am not taking a nap is because this blog is more important than a little bit of sleep.  What am I trying to impress upon you here? Well what happens if I sleep right now?  I could sleep right now and wake up feeling refreshed but knowing I didn't work on this blog post to share with you.  Or I can stay up right now and want to be asleep but know I am doing something greater than myself.  See almost everyone struggles with staying awake a day and not only that, most people give up on their purpose or even worse, they don't even have one!
Here is what I ask myself when I want to take a nap.  "Is there anything else I should be doing right now that would make an impact in not only my life, but also the lives of others?"  Another couple great ways to get yourself motivated are to think of all the abundance you are letting go of if you sleep instead of act on your purpose.

Take a short nap
Since being tired almost everyday is something I deal with, I have found that many things don't work like others say.  However there is one thing that will help you be more awake if nothing else in this blog works for you this tip will.  Taking a short nap of anywhere from 20-40 minutes.  This may not sound like a long time, but what I have found for myself is that this is the one biggest strategy for having more energy and being more awake throughout the day.  Myself I like to take a nap either a little bit after work of right before work depending on if I work morning or if I work nights.  If you work a regular 9-5 job I would recommend coming home, eating, and after that read a book for a few minutes then set an alarm for 45 minutes.  The extra 5 minutes will allow you to fall asleep.  Funny enough from a nap of 40 minutes or less I notice that I wake up like I just slept for 14 hours straight!

Cold showers
Ahhhh! Probably the hardest thing I do 6/7 days a week.  A cold shower may be the most annoying thing before and during the shower, however the moment I step out of the shower I feel like a new man!  Some benefits of taking cold showers are that it improves blood circulation, increases testosterone, keeps skin and hair healthy, and can help relieve depression.
The best way for this to help you be less tired throughout the day, is to take your shower right when you wake up.  I have to admit this is something I struggle with, I take cold showers 6/7 days a week like I stated above, however most days I like waking up and working on this blog, my youtube channel, meditation, stretching, or drop shipping.  On the days I do take my cold shower right when I wake up, I notice increased energy right away and I am less tired throughout the day.

Have fun
have funSomething I have been learning lately was to have more fun throughout the day if you are always working.  Sometimes you may need to watch a little bit of your favorite show or play your favorite video game.  The benefits of this are that you can relax, laugh, and be reminded about your purpose and why you have a purpose you are working on.  Watching a comedy helps keep you from being tired because you are laughing and not worrying about everything you have to worry about in life. The only thing I warn of is getting hooked on TV or video games.  As long as you keep a balance life should be more fun, and you should find it easier to stay awake during the day.  I recommend an hour or less a day of being in front of the TV or video games.
You could also do fun outside, such as a sport or some mini golf, or do something with friends.  These however you should do for at least an hour, but they may be harder to do every single day.  A easier and less costly way of fun (which may sound boring) is to go on a walk for at least an hour, or even 30 minutes if you don't have much time.  I love walking outside in the summer, but what if its cold?  In that case you could walk around your local mall, or go walk or run on the treadmill at your gym and listen to music, watch something on Youtube, or read or listen to a book.

Closing thoughts.
