A different outlook on being tired

Why are we tired and why is tiredness a good thing?

Does tiredness…

  • …mean you have lived?
  • …show that you have been doing things with your life?
  • …mean you’ll get a good sleep tonight?
  • …prove that you are living?
  • …allow you to unwind, relax and reflect?
  • …at the end of the day mean you lead a full life?

I thought this post would be more ‘powerful’ with questions rather than answers/discussions. Do you have any questions you would like me to add? What do you think tiredness shows?

  1. At first, I read this post and went all indignant and healthy,”being tired means you don’t value sleep enough”…
    Then I thought about it a bit, if I’m not tired by the end of the day, I haven’t had a very productive or exciting day.
    Being tired at the end of the day means you lead a full life. Being tired at the start of the day means you need to rethink your sleep habits.

  2. The only thing I can think to add is that sometimes people can find themselves being “chronically tired” so to speak and that could be caused by either doing too much for too long, bad sleep habits, or underlying health failure. Tiredness, whether natural or chronic, is always something to pay attention to.
