All of the things from the last few weeks have caught up with me:
- Trauma work
- A failed job interview
- Money issues
- Yoga teacher training
I am exhausted. Drained.
I took today off of work. I went to my daughter’s school for the Mother’s Day breakfast, went to the grocery store, and have spent the rest of the day in my bed. I slept for 11 hours last night, and took another hour-long nap this morning. I am unmotivated to get up and be productive. I just want to stay in bed, closed off from the world.
Rest is good. It helps the body and the mind. My problem is that it becomes so good that I can’t make myself see the benefits in doing anything else. I’m not sure that this is a direct correlation to my mental health issues, but I do know that my level of exhaustion is. I am trying to find the energy to convince myself to get up.
