Energy levels

  • May 31st, 2019 at 6:47PM


A bit late with this one...

I have a lot going on right now and My energy levels are rock bottom. I’m exhausted. Have reduced the number of kenzai workouts that I’m doing to try to let myself recover and sometimes I replace them with something outdoors which is better for my head. This is a photo from the start of my hike yesterday (we had a public holiday).

The question I struggle with is when to know I need rest and when to push through? I have a tendency for overdoing it, leading to injuries and fatigue. I need to learn to be lazy from time to time . Any tips from the kenzai crew on how to achieve balance?

      What a stunning photo. Excellent job giving yourself some headspace. The tricky thing about time is that we never have enough of it. Setting aside 30-50 minutes each day to exercise at the same time is the best way to strike a routine. Instead of factoring in plain old rest days, use that time to do some kind of movement, a gentle walk, light stretching, dancing. Setting this time at the same time each day is the best way to make it happen. And always be kind to yourself. Don't beat yourself up because you haven't figure out how to do it all yet. Sustainable change takes time and practice!

        In general someone who's worried about being too lazy is never really being all that lazy. It's the people who never question their laziness that are truly needing to get moving. Just remember that the goal here is to look and feel your best, and sometimes that takes a rest day, or a "mental health day" where you prioritize other parts of life that bring you joy. There's no point in having a fabulously fit body and be miserable!

          Thanks for the inputs Talya and Patrick. Understanding what constitutes 'balance' across all parts of life is the most challenging. It can't be measured in grams!

          Gagan - it's in Chamonix. My playground. ;-)
