Mentally Tired

Thursday, April 09, 2009

Most people whose job involves a lot of physical activity will scoff at the idea that those of us with sedentary jobs would be tired at the end of the day. Just as those who experience any type of stree should know, your mental can affect your physical. The point to this is..this week is the busiest of the month at work. At the end of the day I just don't want to think or move. This situation really blows any attempt at a healthy diet (due to eating out) and any thought of working out.

    I used to be in a business where you were on your feet and moving all of the time, and then once or twice a year they would put us in training meetings and by the end of each day I would feel like I was about to fall over with exhaustion. Believe it or not, energy begets energy... we sit all day we get tired, we move all day we do pretty good... so sorry you had a stressful week. I hope Easter brings you some much needed rest and next week you can start fresh! emoticon Sondra

    That happens sometimes. Just pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and have at it again next week. I'm sure you'll get back on track soon!

    I understand what you mean. I think that mental exertion and emotional stress can be much more exhausting the physical work.

  I completely understand what you're talking about. All I do is sit at my job, and I spend a lot of my time bored and surfing the web, and it still wears me out. I've found a quick nap in the afternoon (20-30 mins) helps, but you can't always do that. Good luck! At least tomorrow's Friday!
