I sometimes wonder why I get tired without doing anything. I have found that in retirement my threshold for social interaction has changed dramatically. After 5 days with friends and 3 days at a conference, I find myself exhausted and barely able to keep from taking afternoon nap. I also must confess I have faced a couple emotional issues that drained me as well. It is hard not to exercise according to my usual schedule, but I am sooooo tired I don't think I can get it done. I need to give myself permission to let go today and to listen to my body. Tomorrow is another day.

    I agree with - listen to your body.
    I too, have found that my "tolerance" level of "zeal/zest" for life, activities, success - whatever -- is not what it used to be.

    I would say that I always thought of myself as a Type A personality, driven to success, very competitive. I was always reading and studying self improvement. I went to a Tony Robbins Fire Walk - and walked the fire with no burns.

    I get a daily newsletter geared towards self improvement with very specific, detailed programs for improvement, success. I find I enjoy reading it -- but am not in a obsessive frame of mind to roll in it, waller in it, eat, live and breathe it.

    I guess I have given myself permission to relax and enjoy life. I don't have to be a fireball anymore.

    Kudos to you for your 65 mile bike ride!

    Add me as a friend and keep me posted about your life and times!

    Always give yourself permission to listen to your body. I have the same reaction to being with people 24/7...which is why I have slept so much since returning from Atlanta!
