You can exchange these things for fruits and proteins in your diet which will help you in staying lively throughout the day.

Your sleeping habits

Hectic lifestyle, too much running around and stress leads to lack of peaceful sleep. This only gives way to more tiredness or fatigue because the body never gets time to rest or recuperate. In such cases, caffeine and alcohol should be avoided around bedtime and one should do whatever it takes to put them at ease- read, play music, get into that comfort zone and avoid anxiety however you can.

Do you exercise?
