Life can sometimes be really tiresome, one minute we’re high up riding on that crazy rollercoaster and the next second, we’re back down where we started. All that unpredictability and madness can mess with a person’s physical as well as mental wellbeing. And despite the fact that sometimes can be hard to tell if we are physically exhausted or we’ve just lost all hopes for the future it is safe to say that the only thing a person with this condition needs is a good rest and relaxation. Whenever life strikes us with some rocks along the way, it is essential to cool off for a while and let others take the lead. Taking some time off doesn’t necessarily means giving up, it’s making time for self-love and healing.

If we are experiencing any of the following telltale signs, it is possible we are going through a rough patch in life. Just don’t let it drain you to the last bit. Stop, breathe out and recharge. We can do this!

Easily Irritated. Hopelessness is the inability and the lack of power which makes us feel more and more irritated. We should be out there making the best of it, yet we feel much safer avoiding any possible contact with the outside world. Don’t beat yourself up, we’ve all been there. I know, it sucks. But, instead of recklessly wasting your time, spend this ‘time off’ to work on yourself.

Motivation Levels Low. Feeling like we are incapable of getting the work done. We struggle to find the motivation we need. The goals that once stimulated us to work hard are not enough. If this is your case, you need to give it a rest. Don’t push yourself too hard. Inspiration is everywhere around us and it will strike us when we least expect it.

 Experiencing Anxiety. As a result of over exhaustion, we feel more and more stressed than usual. Anxiety attacks are becoming a daily routine. Please, don’t be afraid. Try to find a way to center yourself in order to heal your wounds. Spend some time alone and figure out what you need in life.

Trouble Sleeping. Feeling like you are out of the place. The overwhelming feeling of exhaustion makes it harder for us to calm our thoughts and fall asleep. And insomnia becomes just another thing on the list. Proper environment and healthy diet combined with some light breathing exercises could help with a good night’s sleep.

Getting Upset Easily. Because of our increased sensitivity, we feel much more intense than we used to. Getting upset over trivial things and the intense feelings brings tears to our eyes. Don’t let yourself suffer. Take some time off and reconstruct your world. No matter how hard it is. It will all be worth it, I promise.

Dizziness and Nausea. One of the biggest symptoms noticed in over-exhausted people is constant dizziness and nausea. Whenever a person experiences a mental breakdown this naturally manifests physically as well. However, we should prevent it before it’s too late. Take matters into your hands. If you don’t, nobody will.

Crying Without Reason. When we are in bad place in life, it seems like the whole world is plotting against us. Our senses are heightened, we suddenly reach a hypersensitive state in which even the slightest joke could make our eyes sparkle with tears. When we’re exhausted both physically and mentally, we pretty much lose the strength to cope with challenging situations, and regular day-to-day stress is intensified. The only mechanism our body and soul use for cleansing is crying.

Feeling Detached. And after a while, we end up being “comfortably numb”. We don’t feel bad, nor good. We’ve gone senseless. It is the stage when we lose all hope.Please do not allow yourself to reach this point. When you feel even the slightest negative change in your wellbeing, stop and relax. Take your time off, breathe out and start healing your wounds. We can overcome anything life gives us. We just need to take care of ourselves first.
