Why am I always tired even if I sleep too much
Do you ask yourself, Why am I always tired even if I sleep too much
Your body temperature is natural internal clock that keeps awake and asleep at certain times.
The rise and drop of body temperature is a hint for our body to produce the feelings of being awake or being tired by itself.
Whenever body temperature begins to drop down, you will feel tired, lethargic, and drowsier. When body temperature goes up, you feel more energetic, alert, and be able to focus better.
However, the fall of body temperature at certain times during the day does not mean as the need to sleep. Your body temperature may rise and drop several times in the day according to the activities you’re doing at the time.
When you put big physical demands upon your body your body temperature will rise above the norm. As a response to any intensive physical activity, the body temperature goes down for a while as soon as you stop the activity.
For example, if you work an 8 hour shift as a labourer, one might feel totally drained and ready to fall asleep when you come home at around 4 PM. The fact is that this feeling of tiredness is not a sincere desire to sleep, but rather a response from your body due to the drop of body temperature.
If you resist sleeping and keep awake at this moment and provide a “wind-down” period for your body after this period, body temperature will return to a normal and you will feel alert again after a while.
In the Powerful Sleep plan it is suggested to nap for 10-45 minutes during your day to physically recharge yourself, it’s ideal to take this nap when you experience this body temperature drop as it will help you sleep easily. Always limit your naps to maximum of 45 minutes to avoid entering deep sleep.
After you wake up from your power nap it’s normal to still feel lethargic or drowsy, this is because your melatonin levels are higher. Get as much high intensity light as possible when you wake up, and make sure to MOVE your body to get your body temperature up and running again to norm.
If you currently live a very sedentary lifestyle, your body temperature will drop very often when you’re sitting around on your butt or watching TV, or using internet. So if you feel tired during the day, please understand it’s not because you need more sleep, instead, you need LESS SLEEP and MORE MOVEMENT!
