Sunday Chronicles: Tired

Investment Piece: Tired

Is anyone else really tired? Not just regular tired, but extra tired. For years, I’ve been joking that being tired is a part of my personality. But lately, this has felt especially true. And I’m not 100% sure what to do about it.

There are lots of reasons to be tired, just on a daily basis. I love running my own business, but it often means that my work hours are non-traditional, and days when I feel like I’m working all day. And that’s on top of balancing family and friends, travel, workouts, errands, and all the things. Also, fun fact about me? I sometimes have a hard time sleeping.

So, there’s all that.

After this past year, and the pandemic though? I’m more tired than I was before. Maybe it’s because I feel as if my schedule lately had been a bit overwhelming. It’s not that I’m going all day, but I am finding that when I have to people a lot, or have a lot of out-of-the-house appointments, I am way more tired than I was in the before times. I’m sure some expert could tell us that part of the tired is processing the trauma, accessing our safety in real time, and getting used to activities again. Yes, I’m feeling all of that.

Perhaps I should even be more tired than I am!

All the combinations and reasons to be tired- how do we deal with it? How do we get rested? If you have the answers, please tell me. I’ve been trying to give myself “days” off, get on a sleep schedule, have regular down and alone time, and all the things that we’re supposed to do. I’m still tired.

How do we get the pandemic to pay for us to have a vacation? Anyone else have any ideas?
