signs you have mental fatigue

When I’m feeling Mental fatigue or like it’s getting to that point I know if you say one more thing… I’m gonna likely make you  sod off!

Another thing is I start getting a headache in the back of my head  (a barely there one that doesn’t actually hurt, but feels more like a  pinwheel spinning in a breeze in a way)

I get physically tired and my Body aches

You could also chalk this up as an minor Anxiety attack as well.


7 signs you have mental fatigue


For those of you that do not suffer from either I thought to let you know what it does feel like from the mouths of those that do. NEVER tell us it’s our own fault. (though some need to be forced to see help)


Keeping ‘cool’ during a panic attack

So we are changing things up a little today its Monday a day that no one likes whether you work or not. I thought this would be a better option to deal with the week and the people around you.

I get anxiety & Panic attacks, and with the hot weather they seem to come easier than usual. So I thought to help you all out (even if you don’t normally have them)

Your Mind races and you start to panic and you become nervous and  more anxious because of this. The following techniques can help you control and break that anxious train of thought.

In your office

Count files or books on a shelf for at least 1 minute

On the street

Focus on picking out all the yellow or red cars for one minute

at home or anywhere

Breath Deeply and picture the air filling your upper and lower lungs. (I usually picture a hawaiian landscape with bodacious waves  😉  )

Slowly exhale and say the word relax under your breath.

Let your muscles go limp and picture yourself holding this position for 10 seconds before repeating it at least 3 times


Other things I try to do to keep from getting one or when I have one:

This one works for both…. Listen to music so nothing interrupts what you are doing, for instance those annoying noises like car alarms, any beeps, phones and other sharp loud ‘sudden’ noises oh yeah lets not forget that annoying  shrill voice (think Peggy Bundy)


If I can I walk away from where I am (if that won’t work try to excuse yourself if not…then try singing a SOOTHING song in your head or something hardrock or heavymetal to get rid of the angst feeling!)


I try to read or watch a movie/tv
