I don’t know if you have those periods, maybe it’s just me, where you’re tired of everything. University has been killing you and work is an absolute disaster, you are exhausted af. But I have a few methods that might help you cope with this feeling and get your life back on track, they might not solve everything, and if you’re really in a dark place then you might want to talk to. But if you just want a quick fix, then I’m here for you.
Sleep, sleep a lot
This may feel a bit straight-forward, but sometimes it feels like you can’t sleep until you’ve finished all your tasks. But sleeping, even it feels like you don’t have the time, can really help. After a good, long night of sleep, you’ll be able to be more productive than when you’re barely sleeping.
If you can’t manage to sleep a lot at night then you can resolve to take a short nap during the day. Even a 20-minute power nap during your lunch break can give you a lot of extra energy, you should give it a try sometime.
Write everything down
When all the things you still have to do are just floating around in your head then it can feel like a lot more than it really is, so write them down. Creating a list will probably show you that it’s not all that bad. And then you can start working down that list with more peace of mind.
Yoga or meditation
This may not be for everyone, but for me, it can really help. An hour-long yoga session or even just 10 minutes of meditation can really calm me down and give me more energy to do the things I need to do. You could try yoga with one of the many videos available on Youtube or download one of the many meditation apps. Starting is so easy, and it could really make a difference.
Accept the way things are right now
I know, I know, this is easier said than done, but you can at least try. Perhaps you failed a test or you missed a deadline, it’s not the end of the world, things will turn out alright. When you accept the way things are then you might finally find the room for a little bit of peace and take some much-needed rest. You’ll feel much better after this.
What of these things do you do when you’re exhausted and which other things help you? I know that I can use all the tips that I can get 🙂
