14/05/10 The sun is shining – why so tired?

I should know better.  My energy levels are low, on first glance the sun is shining and I am told this will lift me and make me feel better.  Not today.  Do you have those days when you just feel run over?  I didn’t have a hard night out on the town last night, this week or indeed this month, still if I think about it….

I have fallen off the health wagon.  It wasn’t by choice.  I have been on  a training course this week and it was especially mentally demanding for me, last week we were exhibiting and presenting in Birmingham, hotels, rich food and not enough water.  Quite simply I haven’t been doing the things I need to feel well.

I know what they are now, as I am in my mid 30′s, what works for me might not work for you so it is important to find your own ‘tonics’.  Mine are the simple things in life – vegetables, lots of them, moderate exercise (thinking about it I haven’t done this in the two weeks), a bit of simple meditation (haven’t done this either despite presenting on it at Primary Care!), and some treats (well I don’t drink or smoke so I have the odd on-site massage or reflexology treatment) seems like it’s been ages again.

Now I am not going to beat myself up, on a conscious or subconscious level, no point in that.  I accept that I have been busy and life isn’t always the same, at 6pm I am going to dig out my walking shoes, pick some salad for tea (to go with my steak, don’t get too worried), and make the call to book that ever so overdue massage.  Back on Track, for today anyway.
