8 Ways You Know You’re Mentally Exhausted

Everyone has rough days and not everyone wants to admit it. Here are eight signs that you need a mental health day, ASAP.

You’re easily irritated

Giphy

Someone decides to breathe? Annoyed.

Someone is walking? Pissed.

Don’t even get me started on when someone dares to LOOK at you.

No motivation.

Giphy

Not even a date to your favorite restaurant can convince you to get out of bed. You just don’t want to do anything.

Anxiety and/or panic attacks

Giphy

Everything is stressing you.

You can’t think straight.

You feel like the world is crashing around you.

Lack of sleep

Giphy

Before you know it, it’s 4 A.M. and your alarm clock will be going off in two hours.

Zero patience

Giphy

Your mom can be acting sweeter than apple pie, going above and beyond for you, and you just won’t have it.

A stomach ache that’ll never leave

Giphy

You just always feel sick, and you can’t put your finger on why.

Crazy hormones.

Giphy

See a cute puppy? Cry.

Want food? Cry.

Someone doesn’t smile at you? Cry.

It’s like your period, only worse.

You feel like you’re in a zone

Giphy

You can go through the whole day and not remember anything, because you were a zombie the whole time.

If you have any or all of these symptoms, please take time for yourself. Your mental health is so important and can affect you in the worst ways.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register.

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating.
