Tired All the Time
During this Covid outbreak, I’ve listened to so many people describe feelings of almost constant fatigue, feeling tired all day and night. They are either medical workers who haven’t stopped working in the hospital since the rise of cases. Or, they are people who have lost their jobs and are spending way too much time thinking and contemplating the future. This blog is about the latter.
Tired All the Time
Depression often begins as a feeling of tired all of the time, especially if you have never experienced diagnosable depression. Myriads of people believe they have some kind of sleeping disease, when truly, they are simply depressed. The body and mind have great coping skills. When you can’t comprehend life and want to get away from stress, the first thing the body does is check out. Sleep is the perfect solution. However, if depression goes undiagnosed, it could lead to negative habits such as over eating, drinking, drugs, or looking for love in all the wrong places. How many people do you know who have developed a negative pattern since this outbreak began?
On the other hand, Covid-19 has given all of us a time to separate from the world and take a good, hard look at our lives. We have discovered what and who is important. Most people I know are comfortable now putting away old time-consuming habits to focus on a healthier life.
However, if you are trying to avoid your life and the myriad of thoughts that a thriving social or work life kept you from, you are not used to taking a hard look at the mechanics of the mind that cause you to stay up late at night and sleep during the day.
If you wanted to take a look at the inner working of your mind at this time, a good place to start would be to meditate or use self-hypnosis to get to what I call “the observer mind.” In this place, you can observe your disposition without judgement and begin to assess what has put you in such a state of mental fatigue and why you are tired all of the time.
Hypnosis can help you learn to get to this state of mind—the Observer Mind—to created a new, peaceful story now with new neural pathways to the brain coming directly from your subconscious connection to the One Presence, One Love, One Power—God, the Good.
My Story about Tired All the Time
As a Practitioner of Hypnotherapy
Most of what I teach I have experienced myself. Having a great sense of where someone is physically or mentally gives his or her practitioner a great sense of compassion. For me, my depression started out from a break up of a 7-year relationship.
The relationship was always unhealthy. Most people’s first love or marriage was someone similar to a parent who didn’t seem to give us the attention or love we needed. So, to heal that old scar in our heart, we seek the very person who will act as a surrogate for our lost love—albeit, the wrong person. In a sense, we go into this loving relationship or marriage wanting to heal our own heart. However, the partner who appears to act like that estranged parent doesn’t necessarily want or desire to change for love or marriage. His or her true self actually only begins to emerge when the ring is on your finger. So, we realize that the person we chose for love was actually was a bad choice because it wasn’t for intimacy at all. It was to heal ourselves and change an extension of past pain.
However, when we get in situations like this, we feel our ability to choose better is hampered, because (1) we feel trapped; and (2) we can’t imagine how we’ll find our way out of the maze of despair and into true happiness. This is the story of so many people who walk through my door.
I am stuck!
Stuck is exactly what this Covid-19 shelter-in-place situation has caused. You get up with no motivation. You eat breakfast and check your email. You play a game or two on the laptop. Then you find yourself sleeping again.
Trust me, this isn’t good for anyone unless you make a point of your rest moving toward meditation and contemplation. Even the spiritual component may cause you to become more exhausted, because the normal person isn’t used to dissecting and manipulating his or her neural pathways to find true happiness. Let’s face it, most of us need help and motivation to find something in our lives worth doing and pursuing in this time of pandemic distress.
The purpose of this blog is to realize that the stories in the brain are impulses from Spirit to help us heal, if we are willing to take the time to understand our own pain. Most of us want to avoid it. But, if you are tired of reliving your stories over and over again, try learning to become the observer of your mind.

I will help put you on the road to peace of mind and keep you there, so that you may rewrite your prosperous story daily, as in my book: “Your New Story, Your New Life.”
When Healing Flows like Living Water through your being, you’ll notice you feel led and connected, sleep better, your mind stays affixed on positive things, and you’ll even want to cook better, healthier food to protect your body. Are you looking for help with anxiety or are you bored at home.
Try this yoga practice below on YouTube I made just for this purpose or give me a call for a 10 minute consultation. I’d love to work through your stress at this time with you.
The process is so simple, it doesn’t make sense that it could result in such a vast change in mind. You could do some seated yoga. I actually made 3 different yoga videos on YouTube you could go to now and enjoy how great you’ll feel if you spend just a little time getting your body free of stress. But, I can’t do it for you. This article about it can make you do it. You must be a self-started at home, as well as work. Set your mind to a clear schedule of things to do. This would be a brilliant time to learn a new language or clean out the closets.
DON’T FORGET ABOUT PEACE OF MIND
We give away our peace of mind every time we react emotionally to inevitable change. Peace is yours to keep, not give away. So, if you are not experiencing peace, it’s up to you to share why you are anxious with yourself by carrying on a self dialogue. Yes, that’s right. Question yourself. Work it out together with all the parts of your mind (the good, bad, and the ugly). These are the times when we will be closest to our loved ones and also have a great deal of alone time. Use it to your spiritual and physical advantage.
Some friendly reminders about Peace:
- You are made in the image and by the grace of Peace.
- Peace doesn’t comprehend pandemonium.
- Peace of mind is gentle.
- Peace does not judge you or others.
- Peace promotes calm and love.
