Work has been busy – a too-tight deadline and no help. You’re all familiar with the scene. Add in the rest of my life, and it’s amazing that I’m still awake right now.
Awake, but not hungry. Interestingly, I’m reminding myself to eat. What a shock!
I’d heard rumors that this happens to people, but to ME? No way!
Back in the day, I’d have used food to try to perk myself up. After all, common wisdom said that if you need energy, you eat! That hasn’t always been the case for me. Eating often made me even more tired. It took a long time for me to realize the truth: I was probably eating the wrong things!
But that was then – this is now. Eating something decent generally gives me a pick-me-up these days, but it doesn’t always last long.
Bottom line, when I’m tired, I need more sleep. Doesn’t that sound simple? The right answer often is. We tend to complicate things. Not sure if it’s because we can’t believe that the answer is that simple, or if we’re trying to make excuses.
So, after I finish eating dinner, which are a couple of small meatballs made by my sister along with a couple of tablespoons of bulgur, I’ll take a shower and go to sleep.
Maybe you should, too.
