1. How do you feel about physical and mental stress? When I am mentally and physically stressed, I have a hard time falling asleep. Then, when I do finally fall asleep, I have a hard time staying asleep. When I am really stressed out, I will sometimes wake during the night and have trouble falling back asleep. This mental stress feeds into the physical stress by not allowing enough rest. The next day, I feel run down and motivated. I even become depressed and irritable, putting stress on the rest of my family, which is unfair to them. It certainly makes it difficult to focus. Otherwise, I try and get the recommended sleep I am supposed to get. With the busy lifestyle that I lead, it can be tough. Between work, family, and school, I usually do not get to bed until really late and am up pretty early. I probably average anywhere from only four to six hours a night, which, I know, is far less than I should get. Worrying and “stewing” and not getting enough sleep is my body and mind’s biggest reaction to being stressed out. 2.
