That said, correcting your sleep patterns and routines while making quality sleep a priority is part of the key to reducing extreme fatigue after eating (and in general).
How to Stop Extreme Fatigue After Eating
Now that we’ve covered potential causes of sleepiness after a meal, we must turn out attention to solutions that help put a stop to the post-meal slump.
Aside from testing for food intolerances and blood sugar imbalances, try to pay off sleep debt by correcting your circadian rhythm.
This ensures that you aren’t feeling added fatigue due to poor sleep hygiene.
Opt for a walk or light yoga after eating(and before bed) to wind down, saving intense workouts for the morning time rather than the evening.
Expose your eyes to sunlight upon waking, which can help keep sleep patterns in check. Bright light signals to your bodyto suppress melatonin production while boosting serotonin.
Then, later in the day, your brain and body metabolize serotonin into melatonin, a well-known sleep hormone, signalling that it’s time to naturally drift to sleep once bedtime hits.
Finally, establish and adhere to a nighttime routine that helps set the tone for sleep.
Read, take a bath, meditate, or do some breathing exercises rather than stimulating activities like working or watching television.
Once you’ve established a nightly routine, stick to the same bedtime (even on the weekends). This ensures that you’ll get the proper amount of sleep you need while keeping your sleep cycles in tune.
Over time, your nighttime wind-down routine will become as simple to integrate as brushing your teeth. However, building uninterrupted, un-fragmented sleep depends on your airway habits.
Breathe Into Better Sleep With SomniFix
It sounds outlandish that breathing patterns could be connected to sleep quality, right?
However, the way we breathe directly affects our well-being – and that includes our sleep.
Breathing through the mouth leads to gasping, choking, and interrupted breathing as you rest. As a result, snoring follows, keeping both you and your sleeping partner awake.
Nasal breathing prevents open-mouth snoring by keeping airway tissues from falling backward as they do during mouth breathing, obstructing our breathing at night.
Deep, snore-free sleep follows suit. You’ll also wake up more rested than ever by nasal breathing at night thanks to the parasympathetic activation that nasal breathing provides.
Moreover, nitric oxide produced by the nose acts as a vasodilator that reduces stress all while the nose warms, humidifies, and filters the air you breathe.
But how do you nasal breathe if you’re asleep? Mouth tape offers a gentle lip seal that prevents mouth breathing, promotes nasal breathing, and blocks out snoring all while you snooze.
SomniFix offers a gentle, non-irritating lip seal made from recycled, hypoallergenic materials. What’s more, our Strips provide a patented breathing vent that allows for emergency overnight mouth breathing.
