At times I wonder how moms like us can be so exhausted yet still find ways to keep going? I look at moms with a clan of little ones and I just feel this unspoken bond and want to just tell her, “I get you.” Add on sickness or any other life trial and it can tip the lid off our lives. Learning ways to be productive even when you are exhausted can seem impossible, but taking it slow and focusing on necessities is key. Everything seems impossible until it’s done. ;-)
The first thing you should do if you frequently feel exhausted is to get evaluated to determine whether you have a real health problem or if you are just plain tired. Either reason is good enough to work on some self-care and help from God’s good Word. This post made a statement that really resonated with me. The Imperfect Homemaker stated:
Whether you’re chronically ill or just exhausted, you can be productive when you realize that being productive doesn’t mean “doing all the things.” It just means carefully choosing what is most important and keeping your focus there.
Remember that it doesn’t take doing every single thing and keeping your home spotless every moment to mean that you are productive. There is more to being productive than trying to do it all, and this post can encourage you through those times.
