A to Z and my mind:-
E is for Energy:-
I almost did not blog today. The day goes by with room for every task, except our own hobby or need. Well, my hobby is kind of my need. I have promised myself that I will write for each letter and keeping my promise is my need. Having time and energy to write may be another story. Where does energy go? Being stranded in traffic does not require any kind of exercise, as a matter of fact I should have been full of energy as I was doing nothing. Then why I am exhausted. Oh well trying to figure that out will make me more tired.
In my experience, the following facts are good to remember.
Talking takes a lot of energy.
Brain energy gets used up if I try very hard to remember something. If I let things go, sometimes the memories come back voluntarily. This is a big change that comes with aging.
Caffeine only blocks sleep receptors, it does not give energy.
My friends who smoke (including my brother) say that smoking gives them energy, but I think the thought of having time aside for oneself makes them feel good, which they misunderstand for energy. I dare them to try quitting and see how much good that will do for them
If in spite of eating good quality food and in good quantity and taking rest and getting good sleep you still feel that you do not have any energy please see your doctor. Please do.
When it comes to energy as in utilities and gasoline. we know what we need to do - conserve and use very carefully.
When it comes to developing stamina (energy bank) we need to use energy in the form of exercise (total opposite of money.)
