Sleep Deprivation

    This is a big one. Most adults need 7 or more hours of quality sleep per night to function at their best. If youre not getting enough sleep, youll naturally be dragging throughout the day.

Diet

    What you eat (or dont eat) can have a big impact on your energy levels. A diet lacking in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains can leave you feeling sluggish. Nutrient deficiencies, especially in iron, vitamin B12, and vitamin D, are also common culprits.
