Why Does Being in the Sun Make You Tired

Have you ever felt drained and tired from spending all day out in the sun? You’re not the only one. It’s proven that overexposure to the sun can make you tired. Read on to find out why the sun leaves you feeling so tired and drained. 

Reasons Why You’re Tired 

You are Dehydrated

As you spend more time in the sun your body’s temperature will heat up and then your body will start to sweat to try and cool down your body. When you sweat you are losing water and electrolytes faster than you normally would. This can leave you dehydrated which will make you feel tired. When you’re dehydrated your body’s blood thickens which means your heart has to work harder to pump blood throughout your body. 

Your Body’s Working Hard

The heat from the sun is raising your body’s temperature and your body works to maintain as close as it can to keep at 98.6 degrees. When you’re out in the sun all day, your body gets exhausted from keeping your body temperature regular. 

You’re Sunburnt 

Whether you skipped on sunscreen or missed a spot and got sunburnt, you are now paying the price. Not only are sunburns painful but it will also cause your body to get dehydrated and you will feel fatigued. Make sure if you get sunburnt to hydrate your skin from the inside out and drink a lot of water. 

You’re Doing More

When the weather is nice out we are more likely to spend more time outside. Whether that be walking, paddleboarding, exercising, or really anything we’re moving which could also be contributing to feeling dehydrated and tired.
