Who Should you Blame If You Feel Tired and Sleepy at Work

May 11, 2015 9:05 PM |

According to a new research, if you are sleepy and cannot concentrate well on work, blame it on obesity and depression. So, if you start hitting the gym and end up losing some weight, those afternoon naps at work may significantly reduce.

People who are highly obese tend to be more tired during the day and feel sleepy even after getting enough sleep at night. Abdominal fat helps in producing immune compounds, which are also known as cytokines. Cytokines result in sleepiness and also cause fatigue in humans.

People who suffer from depression, have high incidence of Excessive Daytime Sleepiness (EDS). The daytime drowsiness in depression patients happens due to sleep disturbances, which includes waking up in the middle of the night, and taking a much longer time to sleep.

So, if you are looking for a way to avoid sleeping at work, make sure you keep your weight in check and stay away from depression.
