I know… I know. Tired and motivation may not be the best pair, but it is something that needs to be address because hey well all get tired. Maybe I can motivate you to be more actively aware of some methods to help you in your state of droopiness. Here is my advice on the best things you can do to relax and recharge.
1. Turn off the electric!
Get rid of all technology that may distract you. Phones, computers, tablets, radios, television, etc. Most of the time our brains are over stimulated do to this constant world of interaction that we live in. You can really begin to rest when you turn it all off.
Find a spot you know you can actually rest comfortably. I find myself trying to fall asleep on the couch or in a recliner, but I can never really doze off the way I want to. It’s ok to take a nap in your own bed. That’s what it is for after all! We fall asleep where we feel safe, warm, and relaxed.
3. Set the Mood.
It’s funny. I am always telling my girls this. When nap time comes around for them I will say turn off everything, close the blinds, and relax. I have discovered that in something so simple as closing the blinds will help them feel more at ease and help them stay asleep until they are recharged.
Go ahead and try some of my helpful tips to battle your fight against tiredness. I know they have never failed me, and remember naps aren’t bad. It doesn’t mean you lazy or a slacker. It just means you are listening to your body and when it needs to rest, it needs to rest. I hope this helps you to conquer your tiredness. Now it’s late and I am going to go to sleep. Happy Motivational Monday Everyone!
Live. Love. Well & Fit.
