Why Are You Waking Up with Low Energy?
By Biggi Fraley • Issue #39 • View online
As the subject of energy relates to your health as well as living your best life, I thought it would make for a good transition into the broader self-development topics I plan to cover going forward. Everything we do in life that brings about positive change requires energy, and when you wake up exhausted, your chance of success decreases dramatically. To find out what could be causing you to feel this way first thing in the morning, read the short article and action steps you can take below.

In the latest 🎤 podcast episode, I shared my best, most comprehensive advise on reversing arthritis. Make sure to listen in, and make 2019 your best year yet! 💪

Why Are You Waking Up With Low Energy?
If you find yourself waking up in the mornings with incredibly low energy levels then you’re not alone. This is how many of us feel first thing in the morning and it’s what encourages so many of us to just crawl back under the covers instead of springing out of bed in order to get productive.
Some people though will find that they feel much worse than others in the morning and this can be a real problem when you have lots to get done. If you’re waking up and not feeling refreshed then it’s important to find out why and to do something about it. So, here are some possible causes to consider:
Dehydration
One reason we often feel rough in the morning is actually that we’re dehydrated. This is a long time for our bodies to go without food or drink and as such it’s easy to wake up with a dry throat and headache. That’s why it’s a great idea to start your day with a glass of water or two.
Low Blood Sugar
Likewise, it might be that you actually have low blood sugar for the same reasons. Sleeping through an entire night without eating is basically intermittent fasting. Some people are more sensitive to low blood sugar issues, and a healthy, balanced breakfast is in order, while others have no problem going for a jog first thing. Listen to your body!
Apnea
Sleep apnea is a condition that causes you to wake up repeatedly in the night because you’ve stopped breathing. The problem is that most people wake so briefly that they actually have no recollection of doing so at all and thus they never realize they have a problem. Ask your partner to watch you sleep and if you have an issue, see a doctor about a CPAP machine.
Depression
Depression can also often cause you to not want to get out of bed – and our energy levels and moods are very tightly linked. SAD (seasonal affective disorder) meanwhile can cause depression-like symptoms in winter. One of the things I have found extremely helpful to combat SAD is a so-called Happy Light (go ahead, Google it). I have used one for years now. It’s right here on my desk, and I am no longer affected by cloudy and cold winter days.
Allergy
Finally, if you have a very scratchy throat in the morning and it’s not dehydration, it might be an allergy. Try sleeping with the window closed and see if that helps! Also, make sure you aren’t using any harsh detergents or dryer sheets for your bedding that may irritate your airways.
That’s it for this week. Hopefully, you got some great new ideas for improving your life. As always, remember to give me your feedback below, so I can continue bringing you content you enjoy and use! 😘
