How to overcome Weariness

I need some time out…

Don’t you? Time out from this world with all its sadness & troubles!

Time out from my own self imposed expectations, time out from the pressures of life, time out to just Pause & Reflect… 

So today we’re having a mini retreat by settling into a comfy chair, putting our feet up to enjoy a large cup of our favourite beverage & some treats.

Mine is a mug of ‘Go Go Goa tea’ that has all the exotic flavours of the far east & a slice of gf Apricot, Almond & Coconut loaf toasted with creamery butter melting upon its deliciousness!

We’re seated indoors in my comfy loungeroom because it’s absolutely freezing here!

As snow is falling on our Australian snow fields & the icy blasts are being directed our way!

Now we’re seated with our refreshments, I want to know…

How are you my friend?

I’m a little weary myself…actually a lot weary to be honest!

Are you feeling a bit weary too?

Have you noticed how weariness spreads through our entire body…

Clouding our minds, creating a fatigue that can only be described as bone weary

Where it reaches so deeply into our beings that it goes right down to our bones!

Strategies for restoration

When I feel this way I find one or all of the following strategies work;

By putting my feet up to have a refreshing time of tea & reflection.

This may also include writing for our time together or jotting down things in my journal.


It may be reading a good book or doing a word puzzle, I love word puzzles!

I also enjoy walking along the waterfront, smelling the salty fresh air & listening to the rhythm of the waves, which are so very soothing.

Enjoying the the bird songs & feeling that refreshing sea breeze upon my face is rejuvenating.

A time for Contemplation

This is also an opportune time for quiet contemplation with my heavenly Father, as I enjoy His creation.

Just as Jesus Christ invited all to come to Him while here on earth. 

We can spend time with Him through the Spirit of God today for He left us with this invitation;

“Come to Me, all who are weary


heavy laden,


I will give you rest.

Take My yoke upon you,


learn from Me,

for I am gentle


humble in heart


you shall find rest for your souls.” 

Matthew 11:28-29


I’m feeling a lot more refreshed now…

I hope you are too my friend.

What’s your favourite restorative thing to do? Please share below as I would love to hear them.

Until next time,


You’re most welcome to join me in The Reading Nook

  2. Your tea sounds delicious! My husband and I are heading away for a weekend of rest and relaxation. I have been feeling quite weary trying to keep up with my son’s schedule these past few weeks; he’s an on the go type of person and I like days of quiet solitude.
