Fatigue

To say I am tired would be putting it lightly. Due to my unbelievably crappy internet provider, I have been battling to stay online. Not being able to stay online makes it difficult to blog, work or even check my bank balance! It also results in my losing what little sleep I get because I spend that time trying to catch up.

I gave in today, and decided to just take a day off and relax. I even took a short nap earlier, but not long enough to make me feel truly rested. Now it is 2 AM and my baby boy is wide awake, which of course means I am too. And in just 3 short hours and a few measly minutes it will be time to wake up and start the day. I am thinking I will continue to be fatigued for quite a while!

I am also two days behind with the Ultimate Blog Challenge, so I will be posting again later today to begin catching up! Hopefully by the time I hit all my article deadlines and catch up on blogging, I can get at least one full nights sleep!

What are your tips for dealing with fatigue? I would love to hear them!

  1. Hi Carrie, hang in there! I am a day behind myself and badly fatigued too :) You are not alone in that boat. If you need a boost of support just drop me a line. I know it's a post a day and I do my best based on the circumstances.

  4. I am not sure if I missed a post- but if your fatigue is neurological, often, the very best thing is to just rest. Like a commenter above said, yoga can help, but ultimately just being good to yourself and resting up so that you can conserve energy is best.

  6. Carrie, I feel your pain. When I can't nap, I walk. It's only three blocks to my post office, but you would be surprised by the difference those few minutes make on mental clarity.

  7. I wish I had ideas for you! With the way my life is right now I am lucky to get 4hrs a sleep a night and napping during the day is not really an option, although it would be nice. I know getting out and walking does help, and for the days I can't go outside I use the treadmill or pedal machine.
