Tired Thursday

in HiveBloPoMo2 years ago


So tired tonight, and it's only Thursday. Still have the rest of the week to go.

Last night and today were super busy at work as we had a major system move. I was up late testing, and testing again. Then this morning was an early start to reconfigure equipment at multiple locations, followed by more testing. By 3pm I was struggling to stay awake and headed home early. I've been resting since I got here, but sleep is being elusive.

I've noticed that I seem to get tired so much quicker now a days. I haven't worked out yet if it's just age related, a carry over from last years illness, unhealthy lifestyle habits, or if I'm simply being very busy. I suspect it's a combination of all four. I've had a health checkup recently, so at least I know it's nothing worrisome.

I think it's time for a bit of a lifestyle overhaul though. There's no real vices, just a bad habit of snacking and, since the illness, not being active enough. I also need to get back into an 8 hours a night unbroken sleep routine.

I'm going to check out the Fast 800 (well, the 5:2 aspect of it) for my diet and get a new step tracker, as I find competing against my previous day's total a motivating challenge. I think scheduling in some walks to start with, until I can build it into a regular daily routine. Not sure what to do about the sleep one as I seem to have made the multiple early morning wake ups a habit.

Do you have any tips that may help?

Until next time,

We'll I "hear" You on needing 8 hours sleep cause having two little children and working full time has taken it's told on me... My advice is you take it easy on yourself, I know we are our own hardest critics and that can bring us down a bit. Take care and hope you feel better soon! untitled.gif
