First, it’s possible that you are not active enough throughout the day. This is possible and indeed quite likely if you have an office job or if you work from home. If you are stuck behind the desk then you’re not going to be getting the physical activity that your body needs for a good night of sleep. One of the ways that you can deal with this is by making sure that you are adding plenty of physical activity into your daily routine. For instance, you might want to consider going for a run before or after work. This could do wonders for you and help you feel tired when your bed hits the pillow. 

Sleep Apnea

You could also be struggling with an issue like sleep apnea. If you have sleep apnea then your breathing is going to stop and start each night while you are asleep. The problem with this is that it will cause your body to be exhausted. When you’re trying to get some rest, your body will be fighting to breathe. If you have this issue, it’s common to wake up with a headache too. You might not notice a health issue like this, but someone that you are sleeping with certainly could. 


You could also find that stress is the reason why you constantly feel exhausted in the morning. If you are having issues with stress, then you need to make sure that you are finding a way to relax. There are lots of steps that you can take to ensure that you are able to relax far more easily. For instance, you might want to think about having a long soak at the end of each day. Add some handmade wax melts to your bath environment and you’ll create the perfect relaxing space. 

The Wrong Sleep Environment

Or finally, it might be an issue with your sleep environment that is causing you to have problems getting the great night of rest that you desperately need. To fix problems here, you should think about getting rid of some of the electrical devices. You might also want to consider thinking about light pollution. Problems with a bright room can be enough to stop you reaching from the deepest levels of sleep. This means that you are going to be disturbed a lot  through the night. 

We hope this helps you understand some of the key reasons why you might be waking up in the morning feeling exhausted and virtually completely drained. If you take the right steps then you can get things back on the right path and ensure that you feel far better in yourself.
