6. Get a Better Night of Sleep
This might be the most obvious tip to increase daytime energy, but getting a good night of sleep is absolutely crucial. First, start by sticking to a consistent routine every day of the week—even weekends. Then, optimize your bedroom environment. Use blackout curtains or wear an eye mask and get a white noise machine or turn on a fan to drown out background noises.
If you’re using all our tips above and still feeling tired during the day, there’s a possibility that you have a sleep disorder. Obstructive sleep apnea is one of the most common sleep disorders and can cause daytime fatigue as well as loud snoring, choking or coughing during sleep, irritability, difficulty concentrating, memory problems, and more.
If any of these symptoms apply to you, we highly encourage you to make an appointment at the Center for Advanced Dentistry in Nashville for a sleep apnea consultation. Dr. Kent White will ask you about your symptoms, medical history, and examine your airway. If he suspects you have sleep apnea, he will refer you to a physician to conduct a sleep test. Once you receive a diagnosis, Dr. White can help you find the best sleep apnea treatment for your needs. Please contact our Nashville sleep apnea dentist at (615) 383-6787 to book an appointment today.
