Stressed and Tired

Thursday, October 21, 2010

I am so stressed out about my finances and my job lately. All I want to do is sleep and eat. The moment I wake up for work, I feel down just thinking about how my day will be. My boss went on leave unexpectedly and I've been thrown into a role that I'm not adequately trained to do. To make matters worse, I work with a bunch of women and although I am a woman myself, the only pleasure they seem to find is coming to me with complaints about each other. All the while, I can't seem to make ends meet. I find myself on the sparkpeople website alot at work, trying to avoid all of the chaos and problems that keep seeming to pop up. I'm so tired and when I get home, I just want to sleep to escape from everything but there is too much to do: running errands, laundry, etc. I have been waking up almost every hour of the night and at times having 2-3 alcoholic beverages after work, not to mention all of the fattening comfort foods I have been consuming. Every now and then I'll do some squats or push ups but I've definitely cut back on my walking which is the only cardio that I was doing. I know that I will get out of this funk, it's just a matter of pulling myself together.

    You can pull yourself out of this! One thing I found with SP is the healthier I get and feel, the better the world around seems to be. It is almost magical the way things start to fall into place when you take care of yourself first. Exercise may be just what you need to release all that tension and frustration that building inside you. I also found writing in a journal before bed helps get rid of all those thoughts that are roaming around so I could sleep better. Hope you feel better soon!

    Hey - alot of us go through periods like this when things just seem to overwhelm us. You need to find an outlet whether it be exercise, pedicure, or just simply walking in the fresh air. Sometimes calling a friend to re-connect and have someone to talk to helps. Just know that this is temporary and things will get better!

    One thing that helped me when I felt that way was walking. Getting out and getting fresh air. Even if it's just for a few minutes. It always helped clear my mind. I hope you find the strength to get back out there. I know it's hard... I hope things get better for you. Things always get worse before they get better... but just remember things WILL GET BETTER!
