What Causes Tiredness And Low Energy

Feeling tired and low energy all the time can make your life feel like a total drag. When you can’t figure out how to get out from under this fatigued feeling, it can leave you feeling trapped. In this video, I’ll share what causes chronic tiredness and low energy and how you can break that cycle.

When people notice that they are tired regularly, they will try artificial ways to boost their energy from energy drinks to caffeine to carbohydrate-rich foods. While this may help in the short term, they notice that this fast energy comes with a price tag in the form of energy crashes later on in the day. They also may notice that these quick fixes drain energy more and become so dependent on them.

So when your adrenals are constantly engaged because you don’t manage stress, you can be in a constant state of flight or fight. It happens when your cortisol levels are too high. And this can shut down your ability to relax and other functions in the body, and even thyroid hormone production.

Often people are more stressed than how they think they are. They usually think of just emotional, mental stress, but there are other forms of stress too. They may also be dealing with chemical and physical stress from gut imbalances, toxins, and other environmental factors.

What are these factors? Electromagnetic frequency or radiation, which are emitted from these appliances can disrupt normal cell function and cause a variety of symptoms. This means exposure to electricity, which loads our body with a negative electrical charge known as negative ions which can harm your health.

We have three types of stress: physical, chemical, and emotional.

  1. Physical stressors can be due to injuries, accidents, pain, and even over-exercising. Examples of physical stress include lack of sleep, poor posture, falls, car accidents, or lack of exercise.
  2. Chemical stressors can be from our environment, the air that we breathe, the foods that we consume, or the water that we drink, and the chemicals that we are exposed to constantly. Toxins are all around us – pollution, food additives, pesticides, cleaning supplies, personal products, and even medication may contain chemicals that poison your body to one degree or the other.
  3. Emotional stress can be from our relationships or work. Emotional anxiety is most harmful to the body when it is unrelenting. If there is no outlet for tension, the stress builds up like steam in a pressure cooker. A difficult work environment, financial worries, or loss of a loved one can push your body into fight or flight mode. And the more stressful the situation, the more it will add to the stress pile. Emotional stress may be difficult to reproduce because of life circumstances.
