We all have days when we feel too tired to do anything. Some of us have more of those others - that may be a cause for concern and should be taken advice for. But mostly it is a mixture of tiredness, laziness, and a general state of feeling “blah”. That is another reason why everyone looks forward to the weekend so badly - the weekend is the time (as less as it feels) when we all rejuvenate and get some semblance of sense and energy back to our lives.
But if you have been feeling down and out, and feel like you don’t have any energy left to do anything in life, you might want to think about some easy remedies to sort yourself out. There are your basic first aid steps to make yourself feel better when nothing else seems to be working.

Sleep it off
Sounds too obvious to be stated, eh? But many of us do not give our bodies enough rest through the week, which is why even by the end of the weekend, we feel as tired as before.

Don’t do anything that requires a lot of energy
Not just physically tired, sometimes you are emotionally and mentally tired and you don’t recognise it. We are asked to push ourselves out of bed and get that drink. Don’t get that drink - really. Not only does alcohol leave you physically tired but also mentally, as do other things such as emotionally draining, drama-filled conversations. Instead of fights, choose conversations that you know will help you feel lighter and unburdened.

Go for the easy wins
Instead of doing something that requires a lot of energy to make you feel better, go for the easy wins - dance it out at home, watch a happy movie to make yourself feel better, go your dishes, cook a meal. These things are therapeutic and also save money, time, and effort.
