Stop Anticipating Tiredness

January 6, 2011 10:24pm CST
I overheard two men speaking.It was as if each person was trying to convince the other, and perhaps themselves, how many hours and how hard they were working, how few hours of sleep they were going to get, and,most of all, how tired they were going to be. I wasn’t quite sure if they were bragging or complaining, but one thing was certain,they were appearing more and more tired the longer the conversation continued. The problem with anticipating tiredness in this way, or in any way,is that it clearly reinforces the tiredness.It rivets your attention to the number of hours you are sleeping and how tired you are going to be. Then, when you wake up, you are likely to do it again by reminding yourself how few hours it has been since your head hit the pillow.Who knows what really happens,but seems to me that anticipating tiredness must send a message to your brain reminding you to feel and act tired because that is the way you have programmed yourself to respond. This is the way how things goes.....right????

Dear friend, I feel there are people whose think they cannot do even though they can do. There are people who are not mentally prepared but physically they are able. But it matter most when they are not mentally and physically able to do a work. If they do not according to their wish I feel it would mentally hurt them. But if it is their duty they may have to do it. I feel it would be better to do their duty first.
