For a while, it was pretty popular for many people to dismiss depression solely as a mental health condition, or some other kind of mental state that someone needed to get over themselves. However, depression can, and does quite often, affect people physically as well.
It can completely drain your body of energy, continually making you feel like you are exhausted, want to fall asleep, or just want to ‘sit out’ and vegetate for a while instead of doing any kind of activity.
Aside from it making you feel more tired, it can also significantly affect your sleep cycle.
Making you feel like you can’t go to bed when you usually do, or when you are finally asleep, you tend to oversleep quite often, or even regularly wake up earlier than you intended to.
Affecting your sleep cycle and not ever letting you feel like you got a good nights rest will definitely make you feel exhausted throughout the day.
Whether it be one of these reasons or any other reasons, it is essential to take care of yourself.
Feeling tired for a day or two at times can be very reasonable, depending on what you were doing ahead of time.
But feeling that way for weeks, or even months, on end – is not normal.
Talk to your doctor, change your diet, etc. There are quite a few things you can try.
