Feeling Tired After Dinner

Spaghetti with tuna tomato sauce

I am really fighting not to get asleep while Mylotting here. I had a busy afternoon by putting things from the balcony to the cellar, which I don´t use anymore. Then preparing the dinner. I have cooked an easy meal. I made Spaghetti with tuna tomato sauce and a veggie salad. The meal was delicious. After cleaning the kitchen, I put the washing machine on so I can hang the clothes before I go to bed. Now, I am so full that I feel tired. How I wish I can just set on my massage chair and close my eyes for a few minutes but I can´t do that as it might become hours to sleep and I would not be able to do what I have planned to do tonight. Do you feel tired and sleepy after eating your dinner? Me, not always. Maybe the carrying of things to the cellar made me tired. Anyway, I hope you have a wonderful start of the month. Thanks for reading.

Do you sleep early then @LowRiderX or do you just take a nap at that time of the evening?

@thelme55 No, I'm not napping at all at that time, it would just be worse, I mostly go to sleep

@LowRiderX I took a half an hour nap because I was getting a headache from fighting not to sleep. Now I am awake.

I never get tired after a meal, but many people experience this. I hope you're feeling better very soon:)

@thelme55 Maybe you didn't sleep restful last night. If this happens, I get tired during the day.

@kobesbuddy I slept well last night. Maybe carrying those things to the cellar made me tired.

I think that doing the back and forth in the basement made you tired, not the food.

I like spaghetti with a tuna sauce, but we do not add tomatoes when we make the tuna sauce, it is very good.

I haven't even started cooking supper yet and I'm tired. I didn't sleep very well last night and it was an early morning start today. Hopefully I'll make it thru supper and then get to bed early so that tomorrow is a better day. I hope that you can turn in early tonight and get some rest.

I'm longing to eat your spaghetti. I know it's delicious. A person gets sleepy after eating due to the carbo intake.

You can make this spaghetti @Nakitakona. I warn you, it is not sweet like the one you have in Pinas.

I'm sure it was a combination of the work you did and the meal as carbs also make a person sleepy.

it's natural for our body to feel sleepy after a meal. This is because the digestive process starts activated after a meal which needs energy and so blood flow more towards the digestive organs and blood flow to the brain gets reduced slightly causing you to feel sleepy.

I am usually not mentally awake in the morning because of my low blood pressure. It takes hours for me to feel "alive". So, I am only busy in the afternoon until evening. Thanks @DianneN

Yes, my eyes get heavy after some meals. Today I'm just tired all over. I'm way behind on Discussions and Notifications. Usually I sign off by 6 pm; but I don't think I'll be done by then.
