I feel like I can never get enough rest. I just feel so tired every day. The more tired I am the worst my anxiety is. Sometimes I do not know how I make it through when every day feels the same.

spaceman, that's tough, i'm sorry that you're feeling that way. is there any way for you to carve time out of the day just for you so that you can start to get rest? i try to get away from everything and everyone for at least one hour a day. i go to my bedroom and i watch silly tv and lose myself in it. that helps me a lot.

i feel you on that spaceman. every day for me has been a challenge since my dad passed away. i've been trying to take it one day at a time and also trying to be more present. a friend of mine has been talking to me a lot about that and it's helping.

Hi Spaceman, I know it's easier said than done but try taking time for yourself each day even if it's just a half-hour. Something is better than nothing. By doing something that's just for you, you will be able to feel more fulfilled and relaxed which will help your overall exhaustion. I take a bit of time out for myself every day whether I go for a walk, go to my bedroom shut the door and meditate or read a good book. Whatever it is that relaxes you and fulfills you. This will help you get to a better place.

hey spaceman, it is so hard when you feel run down and have to keep go go going. When I'm tired my anxiety is way worse and if i don't get enough time for myself my anxiety starts to spiral. sometimes i race through life and forget to slow down and then my anxiety comes roaring in. if you can, try to take time for yourself even little bits of time. it all starts to add up and you start to feel human again.
