Recharging Your Battery

I don’t really suffer with fatigue like I once did but when I do, I take a nap. I don’t even have to sleep. I found just closing my eyes and not thinking about anything strenuous helps me. I picture my brain like a battery. When it runs out of power I need to recharge it. I do this by taking naps

They don’t even have to be long naps. I take little “power” naps they may be half an hour long. When you begin to stress and think a lot your brain swells because of this you can get headaches and you get tired.

A lot of times you do not even need to take a nap. I find that if you just lay down for a little bit and close your eyes just to get away from the stresses of everyday life for fifteen minutes to a half an hour or so, you will emerge from your time out rejuvenated.

I found that my brain would feel like it was swelling, if I got stressed out or overwhelmed. I know this because my head would begin to feel full and often times I would get a headache.  Taking this time out to not think about anything for awhile helps the swelling go down.

All you need to do is close your eyes and not think about anything for a little bit. The swelling will go down and you will be able to think clearer.

You need to be able to get away for a little bit. I know when I was recovering people would make me angry if I did not get my way or whatever have you.

When you get tired or stressed out you become cranky and people will be thrown off by this. They will think you are an ass but in reality all you need is a nap or to go rest your head down somewhere.

It is so relaxing, it feels good to just get away from the world for awhile. I also used to meditate to recharge my battery. I would walk into church and I would sit in the pew and just be one with God. I tried to picture me with God.
