A couple days left before March break! Love to see the sunshine this morning. Makes it feel like spring is just around the corner. I also have noticed that it’s getting brighter in the mornings when I work out. By 6:30 the sun is pretty much poking over the skyline. All very encouraging signs. (Although I’m not looking forward to the hot basement workouts)
Heard this neat analogy about sleep deprivation from a former ER resident in a podcast yesterday:
You’re always going to be tired so don’t give up the stuff you would normally do to sleep. You’ll never catch up.
Probably not the healthiest advice, but for someone like me who struggles with minor fatigue, I think it’s sound advice. Jocko always talks about doing physical exercise when you’re tired. It gets the system going again. At the worst, you should put your feet up and sleep for 8-10 mins. Funny enough, I’ve actually found that to work out well. Usually if I close my eyes for a few mins in the afternoons I can gain some energy back. Obviously I can’t do it at work, but at home it has some effect.
Workout was good this morning. Coughing a lot and have a runny noise which are the international signs of getting sick. I hope it doesn’t hit me too hard when I’m on March break!
