Except you pay attention to your stress level, you may not even know that you are mentally breaking down.
The lone wolves care so much about their wellbeing and state of mind, and can easily tell when they have exceeded their limit.
They know that doing your best doesn’t actually mean you should work yourself to the point of a mental breakdown.
But it happens once in a while.
If you have been wondering whether the lone wolves can have a mental breakdown or not, this article is for you.
Gentlemen, this is going to be an interesting article, so sit tight and get ready for a ride.
There are instances when the sigma males will feel tired, foggy, and find it difficult to concentrate.
It could come in the form of depression and sometimes affect their ability to sleep well at night or make them sleep too much.
Of course, these things can happen once in a while. But when they become a routine, it could be an indication that the lone wolf is having a mental breakdown.
What Exactly is a Mental Break Down?
Mental Breakdown is the same as nervous breakdown. It’s not considered a mental illness.
It’s a period when an overwhelming amount of stress affects people’s ability to function.
To the sigma males, the symptoms of a mental breakdown can suddenly appear, and when they do nothing about it, it could degenerate into something more serious.
So, here are 4 signs the sigma male is mentally breaking down;
#1. When They Sleep Too Much or Not Sleeping Enough
Generally, the lone wolves love having a healthy sleep.
But when they suddenly start spending their night tossing and turning with no relief.
Or they sleep more than necessary. Even when their alarm wakes them, they snooze it for an additional five minutes, and another one, and another until they eventually wake up by 5 pm.
Although we have all had too much sleep at some point in our life, when it becomes a routine, the sigma male sees it as an early sign of mental breakdown.
When at this stage, it means that his brain is too overactive at night with stress.
He may even be playing out situations or scenarios in his head that he’s stressed beyond imagination.
But once the lone wolf notices that his sleeping habit is inconsistent.
He may decide to unwind before bed; he could read a book or drink cup of tea, especially if he can’t get enough sleep.
#2. Brain Fog
Calm down, Brain fog is not actually medical condition. It’s a term used when someone has several symptoms that affect their ability to think.
Ordinarily, sigma males are great thinkers with a high level of concentration.
But when they start having difficulty concentrating or have become indecisive and disoriented lately, it’s a symptom of brain fog.
It’s an indication that they have stressed themselves and will need some time off to enable them to function better.
