Exhaustion: the action or state of using something up or of being used up completely

Home ThinkSpace Week 2: Movement, Energy and Fatigue Exhaustion: the action or state of using something up or of being used up completely

  • I am struggling with this so much at this time that just typing the word “exhaustion” and its definition takes my energy level down a few more notches. I feel like I am becoming even more exhausted just thinking about writing about it. I’m sure it’s a mind-body thing but I don’t want to dwell on it. I know you will understand…so I will let you take it from here. Tell me:
     
    Does your body distinguish between fatigue and exhaustion? Have you ever been so exhausted that you have asked your body “Are you dying?” How have you worked with your body’s messages to bring yourself back into “the land of the living”? What feedback has your body given you during exhaustion that has helped you ultimately to heal?

  • I don’t know about other people but 95% of the time I fail to recognize/accept when I am exhausted. There are always a million more things to do before I go to bed or let myself take a rest. I find that I get to a place where I am just running around in circles, not actually doing anything (like I could do laundry, clean the kitchen, respond to email, weed the garden, any number of things) so I sit and look at social media on my phone until too much time passes and then I realize I should have just given myself permission to take a nap because that is really what I needed.  A nap or a bath. I forget sometimes we are in human bodies and need rest (we could learn from cats!) more than we allow in our busy lives. #mitigatingexhaustion #permissiontonap
