Do you know anyone who NEVER seems tired? If so, I'm not saying that they should be kidnapped by government scientists to be studied and probed . . . but I'm also not NOT saying that.
According to the National Sleep Foundation's annual Sleep in America survey, the average person feels tired at least three days a week. And only 16% of people say they rarely ever feel tired.
58% of people say being tired affects their mood . . . 55% say it can make them irritable . . . and 33% say it makes them feel sick.
So how do we try to cope when we're tired? The eight most common things we do are:
Try to shake it off . . . get some fresh air . . . drink coffee . . . take a nap . . . drink a soda or other drink with caffeine . . . eat some sugar . . . chew gum . . . and take a stimulant, either one that was prescribed or we bought over-the-counter.
