We’ve all been there. We feel we can barely get out of bed in the morning, rushing to grab our first out of many cups of coffee. We are exhausted physically, mentally, and emotionally and don’t know where to start to rebuild ourselves. Burn out is not a symptom of over achievement, but a sign that your body needs a break.
You need to slow down and establish your priorities. Don’t forget that without health and energy in your body you can’t really accomplish any of those things you want. Feeling exhausted every day means you definitely need a change.
1. Sleep, sleep, sleep
Did we mention that it’s important to sleep? Your body is like a machine that wears down at some point so you need to take care and enjoy the rest every once in a while. Remember that you can see life in brighter colors when you are well rested.
2. Skip coffee
Caffeine is not a long-term solution. You may feel more energized right after you’ve had that extra cup of coffee, but it won’t last. What you need to do is either try more natural solutions to keep your energy levels high or drink your coffee mindfully.
3. Learn something new
Discovering something new will make you happy. You need something to excite you in your life and make you want to spice things up.
4. Break up your routine
This is essential. If you’re feeling tired and low, you need a change of pace but also a change of scenery. Try make things more juicy for you and you’ll see how refreshed you’ll feel.
5. Eat properly and mindfully
How you eat can also impact your energy levels. Try to take your time when you have lunch and quit doing other couple of things while eating. Being mindful about the food you consume will help you lose weight too. And don’t forget to drink plenty of water – you’ll feel so much better!
6. Stay active
Exercise can shake things up and give you better sleep, therefore better rest. Then you’ll feel like you’re actually able to get out of bed in the morning.
