It happens to everyone: you work through a busy day from 9am to 5pm, only to find yourself drained of any energy the minute you finish your commute and hit your couch. This mental and physical exhaustion can completely detract from what’s left of your day as you want nothing more than to just sit back and relax till you fall asleep. Any chance of enjoying extracurriculars and hobbies through the week with friends and family are seemingly lost. Thankfully, you’re not confined to this lifestyle for the rest of your life. On the contrary, there are certain steps you can take to ensure you have more energy as the work day comes to an end.
First, Why Am I So Tired After Work?
If you work in a very physically demanding position, it’s rather common to come home exhausted. However if you work at a desk all day you should come home with plenty of energy to space—and yet that never seems to be the case! On the contrary, many people who sit at a desk all day find themselves exasperated, ready to crash for the evening.
This is because the typical workday actually places significant stress on your body, even if you’re not performing physically demanding tasks. Whether it be from a jam packed schedule of meetings, deadlines that hang overhead, or a project that seems to get stuck at every juncture, the pressures of the standard workday can and will drain you with each passing hour.
You may not realize it, but a high-stress work environment has your body constantly working overtime to expend energy so you can keep up with each and every task as they pop up. Combine this with the constant influx of coffee in your body adding high volumes of caffeine and sugar, and you leave your body tired and overstimulated. So what can you do to ensure your body can keep up with the mental, physical, and emotional demands of your job?
Thankfully, there are certain steps you can take to ensure you’re awake, energized, and ready to tackle life the moment you leave that desk.
Maximize Your Sleep
You hear it all the time, but getting a good night’s rest can significantly impact the energy you have the next day. Of course, this is much easier said than done as you might have a hard time falling asleep, stuck cycling through social media sites in bed, or you may be thinking about everything you have to do the next day.
It’s strongly recommended that you get at least seven hours of sleep each night to even give your body a chance of having any energy following the work day. That’s why we strongly recommend a strong bedtime routine, one where you begin to unwind earlier in the night so you can ease into your sleep. This can include:
- Shutting off digital devices
- Dimming lights
- Play soft music/white noise
With a strong bedtime routine in place, you can set your body and mind up for success throughout the workday and be ready for everything that comes after!
Stay Hydrated All Day
There’s no way to sugarcoat it: your body needs water! When your body is dehydrated, your body expends its energy reserves to keep up, leaving you sluggish, exhausted, and weak. Lack of hydration can even lead to headaches. You should strive to drink a gallon of water a day. While that may seem like a daunting task, start with half a gallon and make your way up.
Replace Your Regular Cup Of Coffee With CBD Coffee
Every day, you wake up and jumpstart your body with the same cup of coffee. It likely doesn’t have the right punch, so you elect for another cup. Before long, you start to feel anxious and jittery. This is the excess of caffeine in your system from the coffee causing your blood pressure to rise. What’s supposed to help you carry through the day only leaves you in a worse state.
Thankfully, you’re no longer confined to the same cup of coffee every morning. Instead, replace your usual with Bidio Blends CBD coffee. We’ve spent countless years perfecting our delicious medium and dark blends, while combining them with a precision dosage of CBD.
