The work has stolen some of my sleep last night… I woke up at around 5 am and the thoughts about the work that waits for me to take care and all the work-related issues that I have experienced lately have jumped on me. I could sleep after a while but it was not nice.
There was a period of my life right after the new year when I had started the yoga classes; this period of time was when I had felt genuinely happy…. This lasted around 5 weeks until I got my back problem exaggerated. It was a great feeling, it easily came to me, and it was beautiful. I woke up happy and excited in the mornings. Not like before when work related thoughts would just fill my mind as soon as I woke up; this almost always made me cranky and stressed. Not the best way to start a new day…
I feel like I am returning to this depressive mornings and I do not like the idea. As a matter of fact, I feel like I may be slipping in to a little depression.
Work related stress is something real. I know I can deal better if I stop undertaking too much or by having a less perfectionist but more relax mind. So far I was not able to do either of these. But tomorrow is another day… Hating my job or having a depression are not somethings that I am looking forward to.
It’s a terrible feeling to hate going to work. I’ve been there myself many times. Have you ever tried guided meditation to fall asleep? It works for me every once in a while when I’m feeling a bit down.

how lovely – I am glad it works for you 🙂 in my case the best remedy is to stop resisting the annoyance I have because of the thoughts filling my mind. when I do not react they lose their power. So i repeat that “all is well and this too will pass”. it does help 🙂
