Is there any activity that makes you feel tired and happy at the same time? Maybe after you do something you feel tired, but you feel happy too. This is always happen to me after I don my piano exercise for 2 hours each day. I feel tired but happy! My mind feels so clear and I found myself always smile alone naturally after that How about you? Is there any activity that can make you feel it? Maybe after doing your hobby? or after finish certain jobs? After bathing your child? Share it here

There are many things that can make us feel really tires. And some are just things we really want to do and it make us happy when we finish it. For sure many can relate their job. I work as a programmer and it is a big joy to be able to run my codes successfully on deadlines. It may be tiresome sometimes but who will not be happy with a running application with no bugs. :)

Hi wrangel15 Waw! so you're a programmer! I always admire programmer, those who can stand write so many codes! I'd learned about pascal and Microsoft visual basic 2 years ago during my first year of high school,, and that alone make me sick, enter the codes and figure everything before start to enter that code,,it takes me hours just to make "hello xxx(name)" and display certain words if certain number inserted. I'm sure you work with better programming software and yes, it's such a beautiful moment, see our codes turn into a good running application! Good luck with your wonderful job

Doing the ironing is tiring when it's hot but I am sooooooo happy when it's done! There is only one other thing that I can think of that I do which is tiring but it makes me happy.... but that's in another interest not this one Everything else makes me happy but I can't really think of anything that makes me tired. I don't tire easily I guess

Hi sujuwonder Waw, seems like you are a very sociable person! You feel happy around your husband, siblings, and friends! Yes, share something with them or just take a walk can make us happy, although if it's a long walk, it can make our feet aching. Hope your relationship with them will stay strong and you can spend more time with them in the future

Exactly, some of our favorite hobbies can be exhausting but made us happy in the end. I for one really enjoy editing pictures in Photoshop, and even if I never had any formal training on it, I discovered most of its features totally on my own. After that my eyes are so strained though that I sometimes get headaches from it.

Hi Theresaaiza Photoshop! That's such a fun and interesting program too for me! We can modify certain photo and make it into gorgeus or even silly one! Nice to hear you're good at it. I've learned this year during my 3rd grad high school, haven't mastered it, but I can do basic things I guess.. That's good, never had formal training but you discovered most of its features by yourself Yes, we feel tired after concentrate and modify or creating certain photo, but after see beautiful image from our efforts, it feels like all our time and efforts are worthy! That's a great feeling^^,, Success with your photshop, Theresaaiza!

After I achieve my targets, I do feel tired, and yet happy. :-) I used to work at an Auditor's office. We had to file returns by specific dates. As days would progress, the atmosphere would really tense up. After sending the last return on the last date, we used to feel really relieved. Many of us would have been working late almost for a week or 10 days. Fruitcakeliz gets a similar feeling after cleaning her home. I also feel that way after cleaning my home.

Well i should say taking care of my kids make me tired and happy at the same time. It's really tiring to look after kids and you should pay great attention to them . However when they smile at you you will forget everything including the tireness. You will feel everything you've done for them is quite worthy. What a wonderful moment !

Hi grace I guess you are a great mom to your children. Once my mom said the same thing like you and it really touched my heart. I haven't married yet so I don't know how that feeling, but I'm sure it's as wonderful as you say. I've noticed that its' not easy to take care of child, sometimes they are too active and careless.. but yes, after see their smile, it make us smile too..and your efforts very worthy

Yes, there are lots of things that I do that would make me feel really happy but at the same time feel tired. One of that is playing badminton with my closed friends or with relatives really gives me great happiness and at the end of the day, I feel tired after playing badminton. But there is no greater than the fulfillment of having bonded with loved ones.

Hi jamzy_amor86 So you like sport, especially badminton! Yes, it always happen after we do our favorite sport. Sport can make us closer to our team, either it's friends or family. It also make us sweat and thus make our blood circulation better. But we spend much energy while doing that. No wonder you feel happy but tired at the same time. It's healthy, make you happy and can bring you closer to the peoples you love. Keep up doing that

As weird as it may sound, cleaning does this for me. Every so often i will take one day..or sometimes two if i can have that many off in a row and i haven't been able to do it for a while, and just deep clean the heck out of my house...scrub every nook and cranny, clean and re-organize everything, even re-arrange the furniture in some rooms. It is a LOT of hard work...and something i don't always enjoy at the time of doing it...but when i am done i love to be able to take a long shower then just be able to sit and relax and be clean myself, in my clean, organized place....this makes me exceedingly happy....getting rid of the clutter and buildup from my home feels kind of like getting rid of the clutter and build up from my own life and i just feel so very content. as i said..i am a little strange though.

Hi fruitcakeliz That's not weird, that's cool I think! Yes, after sweating and tired from re-arrange everthing and get rid of all the clutter, you can take a shower and relax in a clean and organized place, the result from all your hardwork for 1-2 days, happily. This is happen to me too whenever I finish cleaning my room, get rid of all the books and papers, re-arrange the furniture, and then see my tidy and neat room..so happy! There's feeling like our hard work is not pointless I found myself lazy to clean my room this month. It still be moped, but there are too many papers and all the stuff there. I feel lazy whenever I remember the hardwork that I must do to make it neat again. After read your response, maybe it's time to act : cleaning my room tomorrow!

Falling asleep makes me tired and happy. When I get sleepy, I'll try to stay up as long as I can so I can enjoy the moment. ^.^ It sounds a little weird trying to stay awake when I could actually sleep but it's really comfortable laying in bed before falling asleep

Hi animegirl334 At first, I don't understand how can you feel tired when you fall asleep But I think I get it.. so you try to stay awake and just lying on your bed when you feel sleepy and this make you tired and happy, am I right? I ever do it and yes, I smile alone, feel the sleepy sensation when lying on bed and try to stay awake That's weird and nice sensation at the same time! But I guess I can do it too long and just fall asleep immediately if I feel tired..

I think it's possible to feel tired and happy at the same time. I've done it. It's like when you've been up all night on a creative jag and then at 6am or 8am as the case may be tend to get really tired. You're happy you completed all the work but you're also exhausted. I love having those kind of days except beware the next day is kind of a bi*ch.

Hi cripfemme Yeah, it can make us tired but happy after completed all the works. At least we finish our work and can take a rest and relax now! Waw, you love those kind of days? I personally don't like that kind of busy day, but you're right, after finish it we feel happy, like the last night when I finish my task at 2 a.m,,hehe,,really glad i finished them Yes, if can affect our next day.. Hope you have a great day and not that bi*ch day

And yes, after that hard time, I get the best student title from school and feels like all my effort nothing compared to this happy feeling! Really tired and happy at the same time!
