5. Trouble sleeping
Rest is essential when you are trying to break out of intense sadness. You need to sleep enough and sleep well so that you have the energy to face stressful situations and to allow your body to heal itself from the damage that your mental state has caused. When you are extremely sad, your sleep cycle becomes erratic and disorderly. You won’t be able to stay asleep for more than a couple hours and if you do manage to drop off you won’t feel like getting up after that. Moreover, you will wake up feeling just as tired as when you went to bed. It is not that you aren’t resting yourself. You are dealing with so much stress that your mind isn’t able to feel rested.
6. Your head is always aching
This is one of the first signs that your body will show when you become intensely sad. The burden of all that is going through your mind and the unhappiness that pervades through you have a detrimental effect on your cognition which leads to an aching head. You will begin to feel an ache in your neck and it will gradually make its way up behind your head and take over the entirety of your skull. You might also end up losing a good deal of hair. You will feel like there is a weight on your head that is only growing heavier and heavier with each passing day but you are unable to get rid of it.
7. Dragging your feet
Think about the manner in which you are walking when your mind is full of negativity. You are probably not walking very fast and your feet drag all the time. You don’t actually want to reach any destination but you have to walk anyway.
One of the most obvious symptoms that you are intensely sad, when you start dragging your feet, even the shortest of walks seems to go on and on. Usually, this is not the way that you would normally walk. It is an important sign and it should not be taken lightly. It is essential that you start looking for ways to bring yourself out of that feeling. Do not be ashamed to ask for help.
