As I am on break at the office (elbow deep in a bag of trail mix - searching for the m&ms) I am realizing that being healthy is absolutely holistic and about feeling good naturally. I don't want to live on energy drinks anymore. This week I have been completely stressed out with school and work obligations. I worked out at the beginning of the week, but now I barely have the energy to get out of bed. I need to focus on my state of wellness, like doing some relaxation techniques and prioritizing to lessen my stress. I have noticed that when I am this tired and worn out that even thinking about eating healthy (i.e. cooking) or exercising feels near impossible. I am getting plenty of sleep b/c that's all my body wants to do the second I get home after these long days, but it's the mental/emotional exhaustion that is what is making me so tired all day.
Anyway this was like an epiphany for me and I am happy to have realized that beyond diet and exercise my mind and emotions need to be healthy too. If anyone can relate or has suggestions that'd be great.
Thanks SP friends :)
