Sleep per chance to dream...

Monday, May 23, 2011

Since becoming unemployed two months ago (or was it three months ago), I have gradually begun to lose interest in doing anything.
I apply for jobs, just to not get any response. I go to career counselling for additional help. I'm looking into going to school. But until something happens....
There is a lot of hours in a day and when you don't work or have any money to do anything you tend to sleep a lot more, watch more television and generally do less and less. And the less you do, the less you can do - I have no energy.
The idea of going for a walk wipes me out. I supose its a form of depression, but I think everybody goes through this when they are not working.
I was planning on using this time to focus on my weight loss but so far I have been failing. Maybe I should rent a campsite for the next month and just spend some time isolated on a beach. At least I'd get away from the television.
As it is, I stay awake until 4am, sleep until 12pm and take a 2 hour nap at 4pm.
People who just got off work are probably thinking, "poor you, you get to do nothing well I have to work my butt off to make a living." I get that. I know I sound ridiculous.
I got to get out of this funk and get back on track.

    Do you have any STUFF laying around or in boxes that need going through? Stuff to toss out or recycle? That is what I do to keep busy!!

    That is understandable. I mean your focus in on finding a job and getting back on track. I hope someone calls you soon. Just take it one day at a time and try not to do so much at work. When I was looking for a job I just focused on the exercise part. It was my moment to get away from everything that was going on. I sucked at the eating part but at least I was doing something good towards my health.

    Hi Miss Muse, You will have the rest of your life to work.... so enjoy this little break.... daydream, journal, visualize, get a good vision of the life you want for yourself because it will manifest itself just by you focusing your attention on your future goals.... and once you have a goal/dream/vision work on it one baby step at a time . . . and maybe volunteer or get an unpaid internship.... basically, give yourself the pep talk you need that will work for you and never give up... try to get some oxygen, at the least every other day.... EVERYONE SAYS EXERCISE IMPROVES DEPRESSION AND IT's TRUE... just do it! with love, riva rivaderchi emoticon

    i understand you're not working, but you can't give up and let life pass you by, get up, get dressed, get outside and get some fresh air, it cost nothing, but a little effort and the mindset to say,.. i'm worth this !
    hope you know we are here for you ! emoticon

    Yes, it does sound as if you are dealing with depression from not working. Unfortunately there are so many who are going through this right now. Try to set one goal for the day and when yo have that accomplished you can add another. Maybe the streak idea will work for life issues as well as for weight loss issues. emoticon
