10 Probable Reasons You Are Tired All Of The Time

Are you tired and find it hard to identify what the cause is for this persistent feeling? Well, there could be a good reason, or actually, several reasons for that. My dear village aunties, uncles, cousins and such I’ve created this list of “10 Probable Reasons You Are Tired All Of The Time” to help you trace the source of your low, irritable or frustrating mood. Feel free to share this should someone else you know need it too.

      1. You’re probably used to saying “yes” to opportunities for work, exposure, human connection and getting out of the house more than you need to.

      2. You’re probably tired of not going outside as much as you’d like or should because of the weather changes and the limited numbers of people to enjoy outdoors safely with.

      3. You’re probably working a lot of hours doing various things from your job to caring for your children, your parents, and all of your other life responsibilities and all of it seems to be too much right now.

      4. You’re probably trying to accomplish things that feel urgent, but they may not be and because you don’t know when this pandemic will end you’re doing “the most” to get it done.

      5. You’re probably sleeping either too much, or too little, and the fluctuating changes are driving you mad, but you don’t know what to do about it, or you’ve tried doing something about it, but it hasn’t consistently worked.

      6. You’re probably in a rut of doing the same virtual things, which have you feeling fatigued and putting thoughts together to change the routine makes you feel more tired.

      7. You’re probably really sad that we’re almost 1 year into living in a pandemic and things haven’t gone “back to normal” yet, or when it seems like it’s starting to there’s an environmental setback.

      8. You’re probably fatigued from climate changes such as constant snow, natural disasters and world devastation that it may feel anxiety-inducing or depressing to contemplate escaping your situation for a potentially worse situation someplace else.

      9. You’re probably lonely and don’t have a strong emotional support system that is also able to keep themselves elevated enough so it feels like the best thing to do is to keep to yourself and figure it out on your own.

      10. You’re probably tired of complaining about the same world problems and can’t see your way out of it so you stay continually looped into news feeds hoping for something to change.

If any of this sounds like what you’re going through don’t fret, it doesn’t mean you’re crazy, or necessarily depressed (though I recommend speaking with a professional should some of these signs persist). It may be that you’re COVID fatigued and like the rest of us you’re trying to remain mentally fit just enough to keep you going until either the weather breaks, or more people get vaccinated (if that’s your thing or hope) or you can begin to engage in life again in a way that feels normal. Keep up with what you can, and turn off the things that bring you down, or make you feel anxious and unable to rest, enjoy pleasure or the relationships you have with other people. If your routine needs to be changed don’t try changing too much at once. Work on 1 thing at a time and see how it feels. Plan a social distance date or a virtual one with someone who makes you laugh or tells interesting stories. Watch a movie that isn’t suffocating with other people’s concerns. Dress up a few days a week and impress yourself. It’s said that when you look good, you feel good. Are you wearing the same drab pj’s all day long or are you putting on bright colors, doing your hair, grooming and wearing items of clothing that feel good against your skin? It’s going to get better; have hope. Let’s vibrate high AND maybe do either 1 less thing or 1 thing intentionally over the next week. Drop me a line and let me know how it goes my Village victors!

Until next time…
