I don’t exactly know if it’s the weather changes so much as of late or if it’s my sleep schedule or just the whole pandemic business that is still going on… but I’ve just been feeling drained. I’m exhausted and tired and restless. My sleep schedule should be fixed and should be completely fine right now. I’m sleeping at the same times, eating at similar times, waking up after enough rest and doing my best to actually get my steps in. Still, I feel incredibly tired after waking up, before the coffee, after the coffee, during the day, in the evenings, before I go to bed, while in bed, and also when I wake up (yup, again). I have no clue what’s wrong.
Anyways, that kind of reflects itself in my gaming behaviours as well, which is something I figured would be interesting to mention. For starters, I can’t play League of Legends right now as I just feel too tired to focus properly on the game and since my positioning hence suffers from that. Similarly, I can’t really make progress in Sekiro since I need concentration for that, which I don’t really have right now. I guess, the fact that I’m also live-streaming at the same time and hence reading chat every now and then plus commenting on what’s going on and other topics and whatnot make the focus-part a bit hard for me. Similarly, I need more of a chill time really where I can grind things or where I don’t have too much going on. Assassin’s Creed 2, for instance, has been incredibly fun due to that. The combat is more fun than in the first game but still relies quite a lot on you spamming that attack button until nobody is standing anymore. I mean, you can do fancy things like grabbing people and slicing their throats… and you can do cool things like countering or disarming people… but all in all, it’s mostly spamming the attack button with some fancy things for style points here and there. In the same way, Minecraft and Stardew Valley have been a more than welcome game selection due to the relaxed vibes I’ve been getting from there… and surprisingly, Monster Hunter World is making a comeback as well… as I’ve recently started playing again and as I’m looking forward to all the new large monsters that we need to fight!
But yeah, I’m still quite tired, so most of the time, I end up doing anything but gaming really as I feel too exhausted to play games. The games I mentioned above are mostly entries that I play on stream and even then I need to prepare a lot by getting coffee, taking a shower, doing something against my headache and all in all, staying awake.
It’s not even as if I’m able to fall asleep immediately or anything. I’m just feeling really tired and drained and when I go to bed, it takes ages until I’m fast asleep.
It’s a bit of a situation but at least I get to write about things that interest me and even when venting isn’t going to accomplish anything effectively, I feel like it still helps me get a load off my mind. My head is aching, my body is always tired and my mind is just a mess. I hope it’s over soon and I hope you enjoyed this post.
Have you had any similar feelings as of late? Constant feeling of being tired and huge headaches and all of that, I mean? Let me know if you know what to do about that.
