“Our fatigue is often caused not by work, but by worry, frustration and resentment.”-Dale Carnegie
Grief is one of the most exhausting experiences a person can have. The work that comes with grief is full of worry, frustration, resentment and then some. The fatigue attacks grievers physically and emotionally, doubling down on the normal day-to-day tiredness we acquire.
When the fatigue sets in, seek to understand where it comes from. Find ways to deal with those worries, frustrations, and resentments so that you can clear your fatigue out before the next set of worries, frustrations, and resentments moves in.
Sit with yourself for a few minutes. Close your eyes. Let your fatigue guide you; where do you feel heaviness? Ask your body to think about the source of that heaviness. Then ask yourself what you can do to alleviate your worry, frustration, and resentment.
