Rainy day gets me down---chiken or egg situation (March 18, 2022)

March 18, 2023 Four days left before I leave Japan.

Over the past few days, I didn't sleep well---I didn't realize but Oura Ring taught me about it. Especially, today it was raining all day with clouds in the sky. In the afternoon, I felt so depressed to concentrate on work. Finally, I went back home earlier than usual from my office.

In my opinion, there are two types of anxiety: Some of them could have clear reasons why while others do not really. For anxiety that comes from clear reasons, we can take corrective actions to them. Anxiety from nothing---I mean, no clear reasons---, however, does not offer us clues to overcome. In this case, careful observations and analysis towards yourself are necessary.

Take my recent days, for example, my sleep conditions have been relatively bad compared to usual, which probably lead to bad feelings in the daytime. Still, I don't know the root cause---why sleep have been worse than usual in recent days. I mean, now we're in a chicken or egg situation; Does worse sleep causes stress, or stress causes sleep deprivation. We don't necessarilly to solve this enigmatic question. Instead, maybe trying to improve my sleep could change my situation. Okay, so I will do a A/B test to see if my efforts to make sleep better improves my feelings. I know lots and lots of papers suggest correlations between mental health and sleep quality. If sleep improvement does not help, maybe I should think about how to deal with my stress. I know exercise works about this kinda matter. However, it is not easy to do it especially in Winter. I'll figure out how to incooperate enough amount of exercise in this season.

Today, I wrote an article which sounds like a experessive writing. All in all, this is how I feel. This is a part of me. That is why I should write it down and think about it in a contenplative manner.
