Hi friends, how's your day? I am happy that it's Friday. I've been exhausted. I had a 6 mile urban hike scheduled yesterday and all I wanted to do was rest my head and so I did. I layed on the couch. Not sleeping but just resting and it felt glorious. I got a suprise moments later when Daniel walked in with his luggage. He was home early! We were both too tired for catching up so we hugged and each of us zonked out.
My exhaustion is not a physical tired. It feels more mental. Does that make sense? There is alot of "learning" going on at work. It's challenging at times. But challenges are good. Especially since I was in my comfort zone for too long. Hopefully, I will adjust.
About feeling challenged. It's a glorious feeling after the fact, don't you think? I keep thinking about my last climb to Mt. Tallac and the Foam Fest where I had to dig deep. I was challenged physically and I want to keep up that momentum. But with the challenges of work, I DO NOT HAVE the phsyical energy.
At least the challenges of work reminds me that pushing one's self is necessary in life. Otherwise, you stay the same. That's what the day hikes have been about... NOT STAYING THE SAME. I need to push my boundaries physically, but I am zapped at the end of the day.
Can you relate? When you are mentally challenged, do you find your physical energy to be ZERO? If so, how do you cope. Do you continue to exercise and work through the mental/physical tiredness or do you just listen and give yourself a short break?
Got any suggestions to help combat mental fatigue that spills into your energy?
