I Need Budgets (#26)

For money, yes. But I'm about to believe I'm a lost cause.

But mostly, for time. Kiki Be has me thinking...

I always feel harried and rushed and tired.

But I'm this super procrastinator who's best friend is a daytime nap.

So the questions for the ages are: What the hell do I do that makes me so tired? Why am I soooooooo sleepy? For real (and this is, admittedly, an anomaly), I slept for like 4.5 hours today.

And I'm ready to go back to bed now. I need to make more productive use of my time!

How am I ever going to be a mama, revise a manuscript, teach, be active in my community, etc., when 93.66% of the time, I'm longing for a nap?

There really are not enough hours in the day. I think I just need more than the standard 8 hours sleep at night. But I'm also going to (finally) bring it up with my doctor and see if there might be health reasons why I feel so tired all the time. I actually found the time audit helpful. I'll post more about it soon.

Have you ever been tested for food intolerances and/or allergies? Or metabloic disorders? Do you get enough vitamins and minerals in your diet? Just some ideas from someone who has been through a similar exhausted time in her life and the answers were in places she never thought to look. Love ya!

I have been feeling the same way, so sleepy! It's aggravating. The other two comments are great points. Additionally I wonder if I always want to sleep just because I dread being awake, or more importantly the things that must be done in the waking hours, and more specifically writing. All I have left to do in my dissertation is write (and edit), which is my least favorite part about science.
