Now its not what you think
Honest, I am not referring to going on a bender or anything along those lines
I just generally getting so tired that you pass out
This has happened to me
Today in fact
You see I have been in a wonderful battle with insomnia
Oh it is just so much fun
Dealing with the anxiety and sometimes even the paranoia that comes with it
(Vivid imagination not great when you are sleep deprived)
I have always been the type of person who will make my body bend to my will it is how I have pushed this far
But as I have been dealing with this I have learnt something on a more practical level, that I have always taught
And that is listen to your body
Because I am so well in tune with my body (Well normally anyway) this allows me to push the boundaries a bit more anyway
But lately I have been finding that I just need to pull back and listen when my body tells me something
And this now more than ever is what I would tell you to do.
Although it is very easy to get the signals confused
If you are tired all the time and you sleep a decent amount of hours
The answer isn’t take it easy it to get out and do some exercise get blood flowing and moving
If your joints hurts without reason I would suggest that you need to use them more, reduce the loading on them, and develop muscle around them to support it.
If you feel hungry all the time check the types of foods you are eating make sure you are drinking enough water, dehydration can be often mimicked by hunger and eating sugar things will make you crave more food.
So yes you need to listen to what your body is telling you, but you also need to start learning what it is actually saying
Until next time,
