T I R E D .. has slowly become the most used word in our community today. How is it possible that you are tired when you wake up, when you get to work, when you sleep, when you eat. You are literally tired all the time! I complained so much about being tired my friend told me to visit tired.com. I can’t believe the website exists ?
I tried categorizing my “tired” into mental tiredness, physical tiredness, spiritual tiredness (Yes! It happens), emotional tiredness… the list is endless. One might say you need a different approach to attack each category; however, there are certain lifestyle changes that can cut across the different sectors. Let’s take a Look!
I know you expected the first to be “sleep” but we already know that. However, what many of us fail to do is Plan. Plan your day the night before, Plan your week on Sunday, Plan what you are going to wear, Plan what you are having for lunch, Plan rest time. It might seem minute but most of the time the stress we feel is because we failed to plan.. at the end of the day stress leads to fatigue and we start complaining we are tired.
It’s one thing to plan, it’s another thing to prioritize. When you fail to prioritize, your “Plan” is less effective. The end goal is to keep stress to the bare minimum. Prioritize from Urgent and Important downwards.
3. Learn To Say No
Most times we don’t know how to say No. Turn down events when necessary, decline extra tasks at work or helping your friends when they “need” you.As long as you make yourself available you will be used, it’s the rule of thumb. You end up burnt out and at least one person will still not be satisfied with your work so far.
Me Time is not a meme; this should be a ritual. Train yourself to stay in at least one day in a week. Have one day where you tune off and relax. Watch Netflix, sleep in, DIY Mani& Pedis. Whatever makes you revitalized. When we pack our days and keep going day after day we tend to feel tired. You are not a machine.
