So tired I could cry

I am writing this post at lunchtime on Friday and I am so tired I could cry. It sounds petty I know. I also know that Friday’s are usually for Fun Fact Friday posts but this one feels more important today.

The thing is, I’ve been trying really, really hard not to go back to sleep pretty much since I woke up, but I think I may have to admit defeat and just nap.

As you probably know by now, I nap a lot these days, and I feel very, very guilty about it. I don’t want to have a snooze but I don’t think I’ll be able to concentrate of anything else until I do. Pretty much the only thoughts going around my mind now are: sleep, and Nic, you have really bad backache right now, you know you like to lay down and stretch out when you have backache.

This is not actually the post I intended to work on today. I had a few planned but this is the only one I seem to be able to find the mental capacity to write. I know it’s probably best to sleep, but I just keep thinking that it wouldn’t be an option right now if I had a job.

I have a longish, but not essential to do list today of posts to write and videos to film and edit. I know the quality of them would be better if I napped first, but the idea of needing to get my head down during the day makes me feel weak.

How do you deal with this like this?

  1. I know that when I am that tired, it is best to do what my body is telling me. I have a much higher chance of having an accident or making mistakes when I am that tired. I take a nsp if I can.

  2. Ann was spot on. I think it helps to treat not just your body with compassion but yourself too. I struggle with that too and it’s so much easier said than done. I feel guilty and beat myself up when my body is sore one day and I don’t want to do anything but sit on the couch and watch TV. I feel like I should be outside doing something or I shouldn’t need to rest. But sometimes ya just need a good nap or a good sit on the couch and that’s ok 🙂 Hope your 3 hour nap helped!
