Evening Sluggishness

When you’re too tired to get ready for bed so you delay going to bed due to the fact that it’s too much work to wash your face and moisturize, brush and floss your teeth, do your contact lenses stuff… so you just bum around for a long time on top of your MADE bed (you’re not actually under the covers; you’re just essentially using your bed as a couch or lounge spot), and your eyes get more and more droopy… You tried chugging down a cup of jasmine tea to see if the caffeine would energize you to make it through the rest of the evening. You also took your antidepressant medication with the tea to give you an extra boost. But alas, you cannot deny the fact that you just need to sleep but you can’t not brush your teeth before sleeping… the struggle is so real…

But somehow the idea of writing a blog post about your evening sluggishness doesn’t seem as intimidating because you can use your phone to do it and only one finger to type (your thumb), and you can complete the entire activity horizontally on your bed.

Yes, I am talking about myself. So tired I don’t know how I will ever get myself to the bathroom to do my evening routine things. Ahhhh I need help…

Amy Lo is a millennial whose life today looks very different from what it looked like a year ago. A year ago she was living by herself in an isolated studio where she often spent many days depressed and bedridden, unable to get up to go to work, because of her soon-to-be broken-off wedding engagement. A year later she finds herself happier than she ever was in her life, and does things she never thought she could do, like waking up early and going to the gym multiple times a week! Because of her personal experience, Amy hopes to inspire and encourage other young adults who may be in a seemingly perpetual funk, by sharing things she's found helpful in positively redirecting the trajectory of her life. She believes it's never too late to turn your life around, and there is always a light at the end of the tunnel, no matter how dark it may be at the moment.
