Remember when you were young, and you had so much energy bottled up. Your parents would either take you to the park, or go to a playground to allow you to release it. I miss those days. I hate waking up with full of energy, to be completely exhausted by lunchtime. Morning Routine consist of taking a shower, getting ready for the day. By the time I was done with my makeup, I would be sweating so profusely that sweat beads would build up on top of the foundation.Thank you for reading this post, don't forget to subscribe!
I thought it was hormones, or because I had just finished blow drying my hair. It felt like a complete workout just to get ready. After I was completely ready, I was so tired from my morning routine that I needed to rest. Seriously??
I learned through the years, I was not getting the adequate amount of rest. My kids were young, and would get sick. I would be stressed about making sure they had what they need. Stressed about what I need to do at work. I seem to think about everything at night instead of resting. It took a toll.
After fourteen years of routine, by working at the school. My health declined to the point it forced me to quit. The first week after I resigned, I slept for over 10+ hours every day for a month. My body was so exhausted I would go to bed at 9pm, and wake up at noon the following day. My husband was really supportive and encouraged me to take my time on getting back.
I still have my fatigued days, but I listen to my body now. I use to push my body to the limits, until my body forced me to rest. I didn’t enjoy that much, however, it taught me to learn more about my body and how it handles the illness. Fatigue is a natural sign that your body is tired, and we need to rest.
When I started to understand how my body was reacting to things, I started to listen. When my body felt inflamed after ever time I ate dairy…. Then I stopped eating it. When my body feels exhausted, then I know I need to rest it. Your body will show you signs… all you need to do is listen!
