We live in a bizarre world which is constantly in motion.
There is practically no difference between our nights and day.
No matter what age or profession we are in, we are constantly doing things.
Or perhaps not.
Maybe, like me, your life is flying on its own and you are crawling to catch up with it.
Is your life overwhelming and energy-draining?
Do you feel constantly tired and in spite of various important at tasks, you feel too lazy to start working on them?
Here’s how you can revive yourself and bring your energy back.
How to Stop Feeling Tired and Lazy all the time:
Sleep at a fixed hour. Wake up at a fixed hour. Everyday.

I have always been vocal about my love for sleep, but lately, I have learned that sleeping on every possible free moment I get isn’t doing me any good.
In fact, sleeping too much makes us grumpy and even makes us feel excessively lazy.
As I have personally adopted this habit in my life and it has made a tremendous difference in my energy levels, I urge you to try it.
Sleep at the fixed hour every day. In the beginning, it will feel like it is the stupidest thing you have ever done.
Who wants to fall in bed waiting to fall asleep when they can just stay awake and watch Netflix?
But give it a week. Sleep at the same time every day, and likewise wake up at the same time every day.
Even on Sundays, don’t sleep in. It will surely bring up your energy levels. ( I swear by it.)
Drink a glass of water in the morning

Now there are a lot of memes out there about our morning hairs and out of the bed looks.
But do you know how your body feels when you wake up in the morning?
Let me break it to you: Your body feels dehydrated.
A lot can happen if you are dehydrated. Feeling tired, and grumpy even after a satisfying sleep is one of them.
So tomorrow when you get up, drink a glass of water in the morning. Repeat for at least 3 days.
I bet you will agree that it really “starts” your body up in the morning.
Have a Healthy Breakfast

Always have something to eat in the morning.
Just like your body need hydration in the morning, it also needs some fuel to get going for the day.
It does not have to be fancy Instagram worthy breakfast. Anything that kickstarts your morning is good enough.
Go for coffee or tea or fruits or sprouts or good old parathas and rotis.
Eat what you can, don’t skip breakfast any day.
Move your Body

Almost all of us have a job that requires a lot of sitting.
The constant noise around us and our demanding lifestyles exhaust our brain.
And after 8 hours of staring the computer screen, all I want to do is reach home, flung myself on my bed and use my phone.
But this only makes me more tired and irritable.
So now, as I don’t get in the bed till it is my sleeping time, I move around. I just walk around the room, skip or simply do some work which does not involve me being stationary.
So after long periods of limited body movement, shake things up a little.
Move your body. Walk. Run. Climb. Keep thing alive.
