Brainy Dose Presents: 15 Signs
You Are Emotionally And MentallyExhausted
We live in a hectic, fast paced world,
where we have responsibilities, bills,
责任 账单 期限 要做的事和要到的地方
deadlines and things to do and places to be.
While of course these are things we need to take care of,
they often lead to increase stress levels.
Then, we find ourselves affected by all this, both emotionally and mentally.
And this resulted in a number of unhealthy symptoms.
It disrupts our normal flow of life and affects our productivity and relationships.
I don’t think it would ever be possible to completely avoid stress,
but it’s important to at least understand that
regardless of the challenges we have in our lives,
we need to acknowledge when our mind and body need a time out.
Here are 15 warning signs you are emotionallyand mentally exhausted!
Number 1 You’re Always Fatigued
Fatigue is not the same as regular tiredness.
When you’re suffering from fatigue, it doesn’t matter how many hours you sleep,
getting out of bed is a task in itself.
And you just feel completely exhausted.
Even the smallest things seem so heavy to carry,
it’s nearly impossible to gather the strength to do even the most mundane of tasks.
and the last time you had any fun?
You can’t even remember!
The only thing you feel like doing is, well, nothing.
You don’t even care about things that make you happy.
Number 2 You Can’t Sleep
In addition to the constant fatigue,
insomnia can be a horrible way that mental and emotional depletion can manifest.
When you have too much stress, it really messes with your body.
You find your nights are long and challenging.
You struggle to fall asleep and this just further adds to your fatigue.
你精疲力尽 只想睡觉 但却又难以入睡
You’re tired all the time and all you wanna do is sleep but you can’t.
You lay in bed staring at the ceiling,
thinking about all the things that are causing your stress.
Then finally, when you are about to drift off to sleep,
some worrisome thought comes to mind and you’re awake again.
You can’t get the rest you need,
and this cycle just keeps draining you, more and more, night after night.
Number 3 You Get Irritated Easily
You find that even smaller things are getting to you,
You lose your patience quickly and your perspective on everything becomes negative.
It could a sarcastic remark,
a spouse’s bad habit,
or even the weather.
Everything seems to get on your nerves!
You’re having a hard time with your day-to-day life,
and you feel like you’re losing control and this only irritates you more.
Number 4 You’re Having Health Problems
Exhaustion affects the entire body
and when you are dangerously tired, your body can not function normally.
你会经常性头痛 关节痛 心悸 眩晕 恶心
You get frequent headaches, joint pain and heart palpitations, you feel dizzy and nauseous,
and you may find yourself clenching your jaw, grinding your teeth or having trouble breathing.
These symptoms are your body’s normal responseto consistent stress.
Chronic stress, over long periods of time
has a serious adverse effect on you health,
and this only keeps getting worse until you resolve the issues causing it.
Number 5 You Cry At The Drop Of A Hat
When you are completely exhausted, any stress you experience, feels more intense.
You become very sensitive to everything to the point
where even small things can make you feel like crying.
You’re not able to effectively deal with challenges that come your way.
You break down each time you feel incapable of dealingwith them.
Other peoples’words and actions really hit you hard,
and you may find yourself brewing down and crying in front of friends and even strangers.
Same goes when you hear something tragic inthe news.
You just can’t keep it together.
Number 6 You’re Not Taking Care of Yourself
When suffering from emotional and mental exhaustion,
you are more likely to engage in unhealthy coping strategies.
Perhaps you rely on sleeping pills,
or resort to alcohol at the end of each day to help you with stress.
or you drink more coffee to help you gather the energy
just to make it into work in the morning.
Maybe you’ve started a regular binge of unhealthy foods,
or you’re not taking care of your appearance
the way you normally would.
Number 7 You’re Procrastinating A Lot More
Everyone procrastinates a little bit every now and then, and this is normal.
But when you find yourself procrastinating all day long, every day.
This is a clear indicator that
you are struggling to cope with things you need to get done.
You even find yourself procrastinating over things you enjoy doing,
or things you normally do quickly and easily.
Number 8 You’re Extremely Self-Critical
There are usually two voices inside our head
– there’s the critical voice, and then the compassionate voice.
Our critical voice helps us reach our potential,
while our compassionate voice
helps to level things out and create balance.
But when you’re emotionally and mentally exhausted,
there’s a problem.
Your compassionate voice is silenced,
while your critical voice becomes more and more dominant.
Number 9 You Start To Feel Detached
There’s actually a point you can reach,
where if you’ve been burning out for long enough,
all of your feelings start to go away.
The good and bad.
At this point,
you feel like you don’t feel anything at all.
Whatever you’re dealing with
has drained you to the point
where you don’t feel emotions toward anything the way you normally would.
and you no longer look forward to anything.
It’s like you’ve given up on everythingand everyone.
You feel completely disconnected from people,sometimes even yourself.
Number 10 Your Relationships Are Starting To Suffer
As you become more stressed,
you may find yourself
communicating negatively with others.
You may notice that people are
keeping their distance from you to avoid conflicts.
as you’re becoming more
argumentative and negativeabout everything.
It’s also possible that you are
从世界中孤立出来 逃避人事 自生自灭
withdrawing yourself from the world, wanting to be alone.
While it’s normal to sometimes experience negative emotions,
you need to recognize when these emotions get in the way of your well-being
and start to have an effect on others around you.
The last thing you want to do is chase your friends and family away,
especially since they are the ones who are there to help you go through tough times like this.
Number 11 You’re Experiencing Confusion
Chronic stress can get in the way of your ability to make decisions and solve problems.
affects your ability to pay attention and concentrate.
Some signs that indicate
you are under major mental strain include:
包括忘记名字 任务 或者约会
forgetting things like names, assignments, or appointments.
At this point, there are way too many things happening,
and the stress is overwhelming you.
Little things are starting to feel like big things.
Number 12 You’re Feeling Anxious MoreOften
Small things that you never think twice about
now have you working and make you anxious.
You find yourself having anxiety attacks ona daily basis.
Because you are so mentally and emotionally exhausted,
little things can easily case anxiety.
It could be a knock on the door
or a phone call or even a text message.
And especially someone trying to contact youto do something.
Number 13 You’re Losing Motivation
There was a time, when you were ready to take on the world!
But you’re no longer the focused and disciplined person you once were.
These days, you don’t even have the motivationto get started.
Your once clean and organized home is now a complete mess,
things are starting to pile up
and your job performance is downward spiral.
Simple tasks suddenly seem like major projects,
and you lack the creativity and thought process to successfully complete anything.
Number 14 You Don’t Laugh Anymore
This is such a small thing,
yet it’s actually such a big thing.
If you’re emotionally and mentally exhausted,
you don’t laugh a lot.
In fact, months go by without you having a good laugh,
Nothing seems fun or funny –
and worse, you may even begin to resent people
who seem to be enjoying life.
Number 15 You Start To Feel Hopeless
When you lack motivation to do things,
it can lead to a sense of hopelessness.
You may feel that even if you
work on something or try to improve the situation,
there’s no point because nothing good will come of it.
This is a rough place to be!
You feel like things will never change,
and you only focus on the difficulties you are experiencing,
which brings more negativethoughts and feelings.
All of this focus on negativity weighs you down so much
that you forget about the positive things in your life.
All of us have our limits,
and they are different for everyone.
If you are experiencing some of these symptoms
and you feel it’s starting to have an effect on your well-being,
you need to pay attention.
Take some time to find ways to reduce your stress
before it’s too late.
Perhaps you need to change your job,
or maybe it’s time to break off an unhealthy relationship.
Focus on making positive lifestyle changes
to help alleviate symptoms of emotional and mental exhaustion.
This may not be easy at first.
It will take time to allow your body to relax
but it will get easier as you begin to form healthier habits.
And soon you’ll have your health and happiness back.
