I’m exhausted, totally, entirely, completely exhausted and it’s only one day into the working week and no I’m not lazy. It’s 18:43 and I’m sat with a cuppa tea in bed contemplating going to sleep, my body aches, and I have no enthusiasm left, why am I feeling this way already? I had a standard 7ish hours sleep last night, at least, I shouldn’t be this exhausted. I mean other people take part in activities and hobbies after they finish work, I don’t do this much on work days, not because I’m boring but because I’ll exhaust myself for the next day too. I’m totally eating enough so it’s not like my body is lacking fuel and energy due to that, I suppose I could be slightly dehydrated? Maybe, I don’t drink that much water throughout the day.

Is it possible to be a naturally tired person? Many people manage 12 days working in a row, okay they’re tired but they can manage it, they’re still able to get out of bed on the 12th day and function, can I be that way? What’s the trick I’m missing? I push myself through feeling exhausted as I want to achieve and I want to be a good person, I can’t do that my napping every time I feel tired, unfortunately.

I guess at this point its okay to tell myself you can sit down and do nothing at all but drink tea and chill in the evenings in order to re-charge if that’s what it takes. Maybe as I get older my body will adapt more to longer days, more active days, that’s what I’ll hope. I guess this is all part of becoming an adult, life isn’t as easy as just rocking up to school every day and sitting in the same chair, there’s way more to it, it’s exciting as anything but it takes it out of you. I love the fact that I got paid today to develop my windsurfing skills, I wouldn’t change my job for the world, it’s not boring in the slightest, there are different challenges I face every day. I’d just like a little more energy so I can put more of myself, my heart, into it.

For now, I’ll just keep telling myself you can do this, keeping up the positive thinking is the way to go.

I’d love to know how you get through feeling this way, or if you get this tired easily too!

    I was exhausted and ended up finding out I had a Vitamin B12 deficiency – and apparently A LOT of people do and don’t even realize it. It would be worth looking into! They had me getting a B12 shot once a week for a few months and I noticed a MASSIVE difference. Now I’m taking B12 pills – and if I miss them for whatever reason I feel it.
