The last two days I’ve been going nonstop. Yesterday I had a call scheduled every hour. AHHHH. There’s some good research about “stress and recovery” — ie, when we stretch, we need time to bounce back. But overscheduled, the last two days have had not enough recovery. I’ve noticed at the end of the days I’m totally, completely wiped. No more room at the inn. It’s been even more clear b/c I’m not fully recovered from my cold, so my reserve-energy-tanks are not as full.
An important reminder for me is that if I go “full out” during part of the day, I end up getting less done in the full day. Life is a marathon, not a sprint.
