More than I care to admit, I run out of energy. It's sneaks up on me. Normally I have amazing stamina and I'm a relentless doer supporting clients all over the world and engaged in a multitude of projects and programs. However, there are influences that sometimes cause me to feel exhausted. Do you just get plain tired of being tired? Guess what?
Being tired is a human condition. So I remember that it's okay to feel fatigued. Actually I use it as a red-flag signaling me to "Slow Down," "Take A Break," "Take Stock." I could share some of my personal sagas but instead, I'd like to give you a sample of what I do when I feel my energy tank is on empty.
1. Not Enough Sleep? Everyday I log my sleep hours on a tracking device so I know if I've slacked off on getting my necessary hours. It just helps to reinforce what I "know" and motivates me to take action. When I notice any deficiency, I take 20-30 minutes to practice Integrative Relaxation. I use one of my own CDs and it's best if I do it first thing in the morning. (You can try a free sample here.) But if I don't have time early, I carve out some period during the day.
It's worth making the "time-out" a priority because I know when I take 20 minutes, I get back more focus, more energy and more of an ability to expand the time I have for that day. In other words, I try to prevent exhaustion before it actually occurs. But I'm not always effective.
