Lately, I feel much more tired more often than I did before we went into COVID-19 lock-down. Mind you, I would be tired before after a long day, just not as often, and not as deeply.
It is also harder to get up in the morning, even though I don’t have to get up as early since there is no work travel time.
I’m not sure if it is the stress of hardly ever leaving the house and when I do, having to worry about having a mask, hand sanitizer, and gloves with me. The lack of variety in the daily routine (I’ve written about my daily schedule in a prior post). Possibly, it is the worry of running out of food or heaven forbid, toilet paper. Might it be the never ending news coverage of the pandemic to the detriment of the many bad things #45 and his minions are doing, without oversight or accountability? Could it be the reduced movement and minor distractions of the old way of living?
I suspect it is all of the above, along with things I’m not noticing or aware of, because the things I do notice can be overwhelming on their own.
Luckily it isn’t all day, every day. But, it does seem to be increasing over time.
Am I the only one feeling this way?
