Everyday NhanSense: Each day, I will blog about something that comes to mind. My goal is to practice writing about my hobbies, my interests, my opinions and so forth.
Day 58’s Topic: Being weary.
I have felt a lot more tired than usual. Being weary isn’t pleasant, but I guess it’s to be expected. Perhaps I have overworked myself a bit too much. It’s part of my natural work ethic.
I don’t like that feeling of being lazy when I can just be productive. In my mind, not moving at work isn’t work, so I don’t like taking breaks. I keep going and going, barely slowing down if I can help it.
But at the same time, I think I am hurting myself, at least somewhat. Gradually, I am probably overexerting my mind and body. My normal “warning” sign is I get bloody noses after work when I have really pushed myself for a given day.
And let’s just say I’ve been getting a few bloody noses more than I would like. Once in a while, sure, but a few back-to-back instances? Not good.
Not good at all.
But that’s the slight bind I am in. I guess technically speaking I should ease up, but I don’t want to. I can’t just request some time off because I need to work, as I do need to make sure I keep income coming in to get back on my feet.
In other words, I can’t afford not to work. But that’s all right. Most people have to tough it out when they are hurting a bit. I don’t mind biting down on the bullet when I need to, even if my body aches or feels a little too sore on certain days.
