I want to sleep almost every minute of the day

I don't know. I just want to sleep a lot. I can't even read no more. It's too hard. I feel tired all the time. And I don't find anything valuable to do. I just want to lay in bed all day and sleep...

Of course you do. You’re doing it right now! Whatever you’re doing in life is valuable to you. Otherwise you wouldn’t be doing it!

Depressed?

Perhaps you need a deep rest...

A depressed mind knows no rest. It will only rest in peace.

check what might be affecting your energy levels:

health: diet, fitness, sleep schedule, nutrition, various health conditions etc. Diet can be a big one.

Use of emotions: How often are you feeling angry, depressed, upset, etc. When we are in heavy emotional states it takes a toll on the systems energy levels

Mental health: What is your thinking like? Are you telling yourself positive things or negative things. This could also influence your energy levels.

 

Are you trying to sleep a lot to avoid something?

@Byun Sean Well I'm working long hours in a taxi, so whenever I get my day off I feel tired. And my schedule is not very balanced. I eat not on the same time of the day.

I feel kinda calm with a hint of anxiousness. Sometimes I feel very angry, irritated. My thoughts are mostly negative but I find some positives ones here and there.

And the last question is closest to the Truth. Yes I'm trying to escape Reality by sleeping. What am I escaping is probably mostly connected to how I feel and think.

What exactly do you want to escape?

A question that has been helping me recently:

How is being tired all the time serving me?

How is not getting good enough sleep preventing me from doing something that I'd rather not do?

 

For example, in my case I answered "Being tired is helping me avoid become supervisor at my job, which is good because I do not like my job. If I was invigorated and well-rested every day, pretty soon my coworkers would start looking to me to lead them, and then I'd have no choice but to be the supervisor. Additionally, I would feel guilty surpassing Diamond for the supervisor position since she has worked here longer than I have, so being tired prevents me from having to deal with that guilt."

Hope this helps :)

Seems you like your life is missing a deeper spark that would ignite your motivation & energy levels? 

What do you like to do? What are you here to do? What's your passion? Even while working as a taxi driver, there is time to put some effort into what matters to you the most.

@Michael569 I like to talk even if it's just nonsense, I can ramble for hours. That's why I started my Youtube channel to get myself talking more, but then I see that I can't stop. I just talk a lot. And I love doing it. I also Beatbox while in the car. Talking is also what I do with clients. It's a form of self-expression for me. I like to film to edit.

But the spark as you said is not entirely there. Sure I get up a bit early lately and enjoy shooting the videos, but still I feel like there should be more, better stuff to do. Or I'm just not happy with how I'm living right now.

Get your blood tested to check your vitamin and mineral levels.

Do you exercise? get enough sunshine? Do you eat properly? Do you socialize?


It's just turtles all the way down.

@Strangeloop I assume as a taxi driver you spend a lot of time sitting. This will sap so much of your physical and mental energy. I was researching some consequences of prolonged sitting not long ago and it goes way beyond just back pain and obesity, the brain of sedentary person is becoming more like that of a depressed person. Definitely find opportunities to get out and do 10 burpees every time you don't have a client...or something of that sort :)

Also check your vitamin D levels.

@Strangeloop  I have been feeling the same lately, sleeping for a day and a half at a time (36 hours) and then staying up all night and then sleeping another day and a half, but mostly sleeping, with some periods of mid-night wakefulness which I only spend internet surfing.

This is accompanied by a lot of other depression/suicide symptoms but for this post I'll only talk about the sleep.

I feel like this may be a natural symptom of a few things. Primarily, it's that the pandemic has had me locked inside my house and paranoia about it (I have lung disease) has lead to me being completely isolated living alone. Secondly, I haven't been forcing myself to engage in all the microroutines that would maintain my mental health (I haven't been eating well / cooking, or going outside to exercise, or even getting out my my chair or maintaining relationships or routines)

So I think my body thinks we're doing hibernation like a bear in winter, depressive lethargic apathy. Sometimes it scares me.

 

But I know that If I just start taking baby steps to regiment my self-care, I'll start to get up and have real days again. I could use this time to study or something, and then when the death stranding is over and the world re-opens, I can go out, get a new job, find a new girl, and get after my life purpose.

For now though I just have to accept that sleeping is at least better than drinking and drugging to escape everything.

Keep on keepin' on ...
