I am always tired and feel like I need to look at my health more holistically. As you may know, I have anxiety and depression which I have talked about before. Whilst I am on antidepressants I am aware there is more I could do to help myself too. I took the health quiz from The Restored to see what would come up as my biggest issues.
When I am tired I know my depression is worse. I am also rather moody! Whilst I also have big issues with self confidence and feel that this is often also linked. If I did more to look after myself in many ways then maybe my depression would be improved along with things like my sleep and motivation.
The Restored Quiz
I love an online quiz don’t you? Whether it is to see which celebrity you are most like or what age you will live to it is all interesting and fun isn’t it. When I came across The Restored quiz I thought it sounded interesting. I know I need more sleep and more exercise but would it suggest any solutions?
These foundations of our health are so important and affect so much in our lives. Maybe restoring these foundations could change so much more than we realise?
I spend a lot of time on the computer, not enough time exercising and out and about and definitely don’t get enough sleep. Answering that to questions straight away made me think that maybe I need to move more during the day and stop getting stressed at the computer all day!
My results suggested the first area I should work on is sleep. That totally makes sense as I already know that is a big impact on my mood for the day. I know when I am not tired I focus more and my productivity is much higher. Coffee really doesn’t help in the long term!
How to get more sleep?
As a parent with a number of stresses in life it is not as easy as just saying, sleep more is it? Have you ever tried to sleep more when there is so much to do and worry about? It is never easy and gets you worrying more I find. So what is the answer?
The Restored Tips for better sleep
Following completing the quiz you are able to access their free course to help you sleep better. With three choices of your biggest sleep struggle available I chose “Is stress affecting your sleep?”. I know that when things are on my mind I have a much poorer night’s sleep according to my Fitbit.
The course you can then join is full of tips and advice to help you along the way. Mindfulness techniques, routines and things to listen to before bed are there to help you to change the way you sleep.
