Mental Health Morning

workWork has been kicking my tail these past few weeks. In an attempt to both stash away a little money for whatever the next few months bring, and to take my mind off the graduate school acceptance process I have been taking each and every job offered to me. In the midst of all of this working I have neglected to listen to my brain which has quietly been screaming at me to slow down.

Yesterday afternoon I hit the wall and crawling in to bed at around 3pm I napped for an hour – something I hate to do. I felt no more refreshed when I awoke, in fact I seemed to work even slower as the night progressed and finally as 1am rolled around I hopped back in bed feeling almost sick. Buzz came to say goodnight asking if I was okay. I told him I would be fine, I was just feeling exhausted mentally and physically. I had been pushing my limits non-stop for a few weeks and my body and brain had finally joined forces and made me stop. Buzz suggested that I sleep in this morning, I told him I couldn’t and listed a plethora of reasons why I couldn’t. Looking defeated he went back to his office.

This morning I awoke at 6:30am, and again at 7:30, 8:30 and 9:30. I didn’t get out of bed until 11:40am. I hate to say it but the man was right. I feel as though someone plugged my brain in to charge last night. I am bright eyed and bushy tailed and ready to work on my daily tasks as well as begin planning my alternate path for graduate school just in case my two remaining schools should not accept me this year. I am remaining hopeful that the University of Nevada, Reno holds a place for me. UNR is very much like my undergraduate institution, small classes, student centered and laid back. I think it’s my kind of place and would be honored to become part of their student body but for now we get back to waiting.

    I think you might need to plan one day every week, or every two weeks, for you to sleep until your body wakes you. You absolutely need to recharge. I don’t know what I would do without one weekend morning’s lie in.

    I hope they accept you!
