Is it normal to lose energy in your late 20s?

I am 29 and I do not have the energy and ambition that I did in my early 20s. I don't like it. I am thinking that I need to push myself to exercise and eat right. Perhaps my lethargy is caused by lack of exercise. I am just wondering if this is normal. I am still young and I am not heavy. I am 5'9" 160 lbs. I do not drink or use drugs. Getting out of bed in the mourning is a chore any more. My father is 56 and much more energetic than I am.

Re: Is it normal to lose energy in your late 20s?

Well, you are nearing 30, so this will happen to an extent. Proper exercise and diet will help some. If this is sudden, see your doctor. A variety of things could be going on, like Lyme for instance. Are you still basically sticking with the same lifestyle you were at 21? You may have to tweak that a bit. If you aren't looking for bedroom activity like before, it could be a testosterone issue, which would be normal as you near 30. I'd also try to do different things--if you are like most of us, you are in the "get up, go to work, come home, eat, go to bed, repeat" routine. This wears you out, you get bored, and then lethargy happens.

We’re not going to apologize for caring. We’re not.

At 30 you should be in your prime.

I had considered lymes but I don't think its that. I think I got stuck in an unhealthy routine after I spent a year working third shift. I think I just need to get active again.

Yeah--that shift will mess you up.

Get yourself into an exercise routine, and you energy levels should start to climb again.

Third shift dang near killed me!

Shoot straight

People are sick of politicians, and me, I hate cats in the house.

I am not on third shift anymore and exercising has been beneficial so far. I think it was just a lack of exercise that was causing my lack of energy. Just pushing myself to do yard work and things of that nature has helped.

Are you taking a multi-vitamin? You don't get what you need from the food that is available these days. Also, a few pieces of fruit early in the day and 4-5 servings of raw vegetables would go a long way to helping you, as well.

Maybe get your test levels checked. At 29 you should still have plenty of pep.

ambition IMO has a lot to do with what your life can afford you or not
if your in financial strains, it will suck and zap a lot of motivation from you
if your NOT happy with the direction your life is going in, the same

life is full up up's and down's
how well each person handles different challenges that pop up, or??
can again zap your reasons to get up and get going

if your looking forward to things more, I find you tend to have more go go every day, having a goal to finish,or to chase and go after something new or
Having hobby's for all 4 season's I found helped me here a bunch!

But if your in the SAME CRAP EVERY DAY mode, it can be lot harder to find reasons to do extra stuff, and way easier to sit back and ride the couch and be lazy! and its a lot harder to get back going again when your in that mind set!

Lyme can happen to a lot of folks without really knowing it, known a few that had it, and they never went near the outdoors? so don't rule that out, a good talk and some simple test from your DR can rule out some things, and worth doing! IMO

but at 30, your still a young gun, if you have a fairly healthy body(AKA< didn't abuse the crap out if by now, I raced all sorts of things and crashed a lot by 30, so, way more aches and pains here when I was 30, than many 70 yr old's had LOL)
BUt I understood why!
