When I am tired at night, I take hot bath drink hot tea and I stay in my bed to relax for half an hour. Than I try to have a night as easy as possible. When I am tired during the day, I do some yoga and stretching. What do you do when you feel tired?

When I'm really tired, I'll lie down with a good book, read a few pages and I intend to sleep with the book still open. It always works for me, and gets my tired mind off a lot of things. A good hot tea will do good too..

Hi pola. If I'm tired, but cannot go to sleep just yet, I lay down in bed and rest my eyes for 15 or 20 minutes. It helps me get refreshed and I am good to go for a few hours more...that is, once I'm able to pull myself out of bed, that is. LOL As far as all the other times I feel tired I mylot 'til I can't mylot no more. Then I head for bed and pass out within a few minutes. I have to say, I get some of the best sleep that way. LOL Happy mylotting!

Sometimes I go rest, take a nap, or go to bed. Other times, if I have a deadline, I keep on working, but I find I do not work very efficiently in those cases. I should be going to bed soon myself.

Hi Pola. I am one of those annoying people who almost never get tired, the only exception being if I have nothing to do. I begrudge time spent in bed, but when I am there I am soundly asleep. I am seldom in bed before midnight and I'm asleep before my head hits the pillow. I wake about 5 hours later, and jump out of bed, full of life and ready for another day. Provided I am busy, I never get tired, and keeping busy has not been a problem. In fact, I have to run a tight schedule to fit everything in. Mostly I keep busy by using my mind (mostly writing, admin and design work) so in between projects I spend 15 minutes (timed) on here to clear my mind of the previous work and prepare for the next, or sometimes I will do a cryptic crossword while enjoying a cup of hot ginger or coffee.

If I'm really very tired I will take a shower, moisterize my body. Then get a cup of tea and crawl into bed and relax watching a good movie till I can't keep my eyes open anymore. However I will have to get out of bed again to brush my teeth because I can't sleep without brushing my teeth.

I get mid-day tiredness. I get so sleepy around 2PM that I can barely stay awake. I make some coffee, jump up and down, walk around the house and maybe go outside to get a blast of arctic air! I don't know why that time of day is so sleepy for me but I wish I could feel that way at bedtime!

If I am tired during the day, I will tend to do zazen (Zen meditation) where I focus my mind on my breathing in and out to the exclusion of all other thoughts. This tends to refresh me quite well. _Derek

what i do when i feel tired is just take a deep breath of fresh air and have a seat outside the house taking some timeout of what i doing and relaxing a bit.drink some juice or water and take life easy.and when i feel refreshed again then i go back to what im doing.sometimes a good nap or sleep helps me recharge my energy also.

Hello pola...at night when I'm tired it's usually quite late so I go to bed. Lately, early in the day I have been becoming very tired and a couple of times I have gone to bed and on and off, slept the day away. There have been a couple of crises lately that I have thought I handled but they caught up with me emotionally and I think that's why I slept. I have found that if I am sleepy during the day it is usually because I have slept badly or not much at all the previous night. If this is not the case and I have slept well, I have a big drink of water and try to get my blood moving and stretch my limbs and muscles by going for a walk or doing the vacuuming or something equally strenuous.

Hi, polachicago. When I am feeling tired, I will just lie down in the bed. And I will turn off the lights, so that the room can be dark. I will put a night light on so that the room can have some light to it. I also like to have a comfy pillow behind my neck and back. This will help me rest so much better.
