While doing my yearly review I while back, I have realized that I complain pretty often about my lack of energy. Since I try to be smart about how much I can do without burning out, I find myself trying to do less basically all the time and am kinda locked in a defensive battle between my aspirations and my worries about doing too much.
What I thought might help is gaining some insight into the relationship between tiredness and being active.
I have not done a lot of sports or visited museums or met with friends etc in the last months and my assumption is that I am tired because I don’t do enough active things. And that there is a vicious cycle of
not doing much -> feeling tired -> not doing much etc. So maybe one way to get more done is actually to do more and not protect myself too much against doing too much, so to speak.
Since this is a bit counter intuitive and just a hunch on my part, I first of all wanna know more about the relationship between an active lifestyle and tiredness.
So if anybody has any resources as regards to this I’d be happy to hear about them. I wil try to find something myself as well.
EDIT: Tried to clarify my writing a little bit…
