Riding on that crazy rollercoaster which is called life can sometimes be tiresome. One minute you are high up and the following one it takes right back down where you have started. All of that madness and unpredictability can mess with the physical and mental wellbeing of a person.
Even though sometimes can be hard to tell if you are physically exhausted, or you just have lost all hopes for the future, it is safe to say that the only thing that a person with this condition needs is a good, as well as old-fashioned rest.
Whenever life strikes us with some rock along the way, it is important to cool off for a while and let other people take the lead. Taking some time off does not necessarily mean giving up, but it is making time for self-love and healing.
If you experience some of these eight telltale signs, it is possible that you will go through a rough patch in your life. Just do not let drain you to the last bit.
You just have to stop, breathe out and recharge.
1. You are easily irritated.
As the days are going by, you feel hopeless. The inability and the lack of power make you feel more and more irritated every day. You have to be out there making the best of it, yet you will feel much safer if you avoid any possible contact with the outside world.
You should not beat yourself up, as we have all been there. We know that it sucks. But, instead of recklessly wasting your time, you should spend some ‘time off’ to work on yourself.
2. Your motivation levels are lower than ever before.
You have the feeling like you are incapable of getting the work done. You struggle to find the motivation that you need. The goals which once stimulated you to work hard are now not enough.
If this is your case, you will need to give it a rest. Do not push yourself too hard. Inspiration is everywhere around us, and it is going to strike you when you least expect it.
3. You experience anxiety attacks more than usual.
As a result of over-exhaustion, you will feel more and more stressed than ever before. Anxiety attacks are becoming just a daily routine.
Please, don’t be afraid. You should try to find some way to center yourself to heal your wounds. Also, spend some time isolated and figure out what you need in your life.
4. You have trouble sleeping.
You usually feel like you are out of place. The overwhelming feeling of exhaustion makes it harder for you to calm your thoughts, as well as fall asleep. Insomnia will also become just another thing on your list.
5. Meaningless things upset you a lot.
As a result of your increased sensitivity, you are going to feel much more intensely that you are used to. You will get upset over trivial things which are not that important, and the intense feeling will bring tears to your eyes.
Do not let yourself suffer. You should take some time off and reconstruct your world, no matter how hard it will be. Everything is going to be worth it, believe us.
6. You feel dizzy and nauseous.
One of the biggest red signs which have been noticed in over-exhausted people is constant dizziness and nausea. Whenever a person experiences a mental breakdown, this naturally manifests physically too.
But, you should prevent it before it is too late. Take matters into your hands, because if you don’t, no one else will.
7. You feel like crying for no reason.
When you are in some bad place in life, it seems to you like the whole world plots against you. Your senses are heightened, and you also reach a hypersensitive state in which even the smallest joke is going to make your eyes glisten with tears.
When people are exhausted both physically and mentally, they pretty much lose the straight to cope with some challenging situations, as well as regular day-to-day stress is intensified. The only mechanism which our body and soul use for cleansing is crying.
8. You start feeling detached.
And after a while, you will end up living “comfortably numb.” You do not feel bad or good – you have gone senseless. This is the stage of your life when you lose all hope, so please do not permit to reach this point.
When you feel even the slightest negative change in your wellbeing, you should stop and relax. Then, take your time off, breathe out and heal your wounds. You can overcome everything that life gives you. All you need to do is take care of yourself first.
