According to the CDC, women are more likely than men to feel tired all the time. In the National Health Interview Survey, 15 percent of women reported feelings of tiredness or exhaustion most or every day, compared to 10 percent of men. The gap is widest between ages 18 and 44, when women were almost twice as likely as men to be wrecked all the time (no points will be awarded for guessing why) but eventually tapers off. Young, tired women can look forward to age 64, when they achieve exhaustion equality.
