A Lazy Day

So last night, I had a horrendous night with my digestive issues, I was up all night feeling very ill. Literally I got into bed at midnight, and I was up all night from then on. I was continuously getting up and going downstairs for hot water, tablets and to refill my hot water bottle, and I was still awake and bulked over in pain before my other half got up for work today.

I went back to bed after more tablets around half 8 this morning. I put on Netflix and watched a film called Miss Potter (based on the life of the children's author Beatrix Potter), I fell asleep halfway through. I managed to get about an hour's sleep before I was up again, so today has been an uneventful and lazy day. I have literally stayed in bed - although I got up, washed, dressed and did some washing and general tidying around before returning to my pit.

I am now sat here with the TV on feeling really tired and lethargic, I am literally drained and I have a to-do list as long as my arm, however, I feel unable to even motivate myself to get up and do anything at all.

I think I will try to have another hour of rest and then I will get up and try and get more done that I need to. I have a ton of housework to do. Sometimes I do the five minute trick - I tell myself I only have to spend five minutes on one task before I can move onto something else or have a rest, usually what happens is you end up doing the five minutes and then end up thinking 'Oh, I've started now, I'll just finish this,' or it gives you the motivation you needed to start other things. Even if I only spend five minutes on every job today, it will mean that I am a step closer to achieving what I need to.

Do you have any other tips to motivate yourself?

Hey there, you just need to rest, relax and give yourself a break. I've been feeling like I'm coming down with a cold, but symptoms come and go. Crazy. I had a hard time getting to sleep, too much running around in my mind, I guess. Feel better soon. (((HUGS)))

Ahh thankyou so much! I really did need that day of rest and just generally being a bit of a lazy bones :) I feel much better for it now. I hope your cold passes quickly, there is nothing worse than a cold to make you feel rubbish. I hope you can get a decent nights sleep tonight too :) Sending a big hug back at you!
