Don't know why.

So I'm being unproductive.

This sucks.

Grr. I have much to do.

3 questions:
Are you constantly tired all day?
Has it been going on for long?
Are you putting on weight?

If you say yes to both go see a quack and get a TSH blood test done just in case.

What's a TSH blood test for?

Could be the "too-much-brainwork-not-enough-heartwork-fatigue" syndrome ;-)

I believe the body has a memory, just like rechargeables batteries. Sleeping when not physically exhausted will diminish your stamina on the long run. So my trick is to do jogging (slow or fast depending of your condition) until you can't do any more, 15 km in my case, you have to do it late night, just before sleeping. While you run, your brain still works, you often get inspired, and after a good night of sleep, your batteries are back to the nominal level.

Maybe i'm wrong, but it worked so well for me, i tought i would share with you.

good luck !

Funny that. I'm feeling the same. It's 22:37 here and I'm typing this from my bed, well earlier than my average bed time. I don't get it -- I think it's an after-effect of the heatwave we've had here (UK) recently. Must have knocked me for six.

Getting up early tomorrow and going for a long run or a good gym session should sort me out for most of the day, hopefully.

Perhaps you are stressed. You can take the
Dolphin Stress Test to find out.

TSH is a measure of your thyroid activity. Your thyroid regulates the "pace" of your body. If it's not working right, you could be tired all the time or jumpy. More at

If you're tired, you need sleep. :)

Don't try to think big thoughts without sleep, remember the old, ummm, saw about sharpening the saw?

I was also exhausted today, but I think that was largely due to the not-sleeping thing during the night. Personally, it's not the big thoughts that keep me from sleeping, it's the little ones. Like the thought of spiders crawling on me while I sleep. I don't normally have a problem with spiders, but every once in a while I have a weird paranoid moment where I'm afraid of being bitten while I'm unable to do anything about it. Maybe it's due to that day I found a large nest of spiders under my bed.

Or maybe it's just that full moon making everything just a touch whacky.

I was exhausted yesterday (Tuesday) also. Took at 90 minute nap at 7:00pm and was refreshed and felt like new at 8:30

being tried can be caused by many different things. I do seem to be exasted all the time. Have a 8year old and a 21month old. Also a husband that likes every hobby there is about cars and hunting. Some times I really wonder what triied means. Did I meason that I work and bake and can fresh veggies in my spare time? Maybe this helpped to get it off my chest. Thanks for reading.
