Connecting with the moment by acknowledging the weariness in us can provide its own benefits. Being grounded, not rooted to the spot may mean we are able to accept feeling dog-tired following a busy or intense period without getting trapped into thinking it’s forever.
If feeling dog-tired results from being engaged in an activity we like, it’s probable we accept the sensation and think of it as a small price to pay for having been in harmony or flow with the undertaking concerned.
In such cases, feeling dog-tired or worn out might not necessarily cause much discomfort, certainly nothing a shower and good sleep won’t put right.
Alternatively, we may feel dog-tired due to apathy, inaction or boredom. Reviving our enthusiasm towards life takes something more than a rest. Shifting our attention onto positive aspects of our existence instead of wallowing in tiredness requires focused efforts.
According to the author Dan Millman: “Willpower is the key to success. Successful people strive no matter what they feel by applying their will to overcome apathy, doubt or fear.”
Undoubtedly other ways of renewing our interest in life are available to us. To share your input on the issue of feeling dog-tired, please leave a comment below. In the meantime, thanks for being here today.
