Have you ever felt so tired one day that you decide to sleep only to find yourself still feeling so drained the next day? Are you getting so busy with your life that you are already starting to feel pressured and stressed? Are you always feeling sick and it seems as though no medicine is working for you? Maybe it's not your physical body that's not fine. Perhaps, it's your soul that needs a break.

According to Medical News, a person's emotional and physical state always work hand in hand. So if your emotional health is not stable, then expect the negativities will reflect in your body. Drinking meds to ease the symptoms can help, but since it doesn't cure the underlying cause, symptoms can always come back.

Do you want to know if you are suffering from an exhausted soul? If so, here are some of the signs that show your soul is grieving for help.


Body aches are common to people who are struggling emotionally. By experiencing negative emotions, your body tends to be tensed all the time, which will result in sudden, sharp, or even dull pains. Body parts that are usually in pain when your soul is tired include the arms, legs, neck, and back. Though some people would drink pain relievers to ease the symptoms, experts say it could only create long term negative effects.


Once stressed and not in your healthy emotional state, people often experience digestive problems such as constipation, stomach ulcers, diarrhea, and gastric reflux. Though all these can cause pain, drinking pain relievers won't help. Instead, eat more fiber or healthier foods for that case.


Sudden lack of empathy, loneliness, or happiness may be one of the obvious signs your soul is feeling worse. Once your body is tired from processing feelings meaningfully, your psychological state will then set aside or deny every emotion. It is like your soul, saying it can't contain any emotions anymore as it is tired and needs to rest.

If you are suffering from these symptoms, you must pause for a while and give your soul the rest it deserves. How? You can do that by eating healthy foods, exercising more, traveling to different places, getting enough sleep, or if you have more money or time to invest, you can talk to your trusted family doctor, as reported by Health Line. Doing so will surely help you more than you expected.
