Weekend Wisdom: No response is often the best response.
I honor my low energy days.
Most days I have lots of focus and clarity and can get a bunch of work done in a short amount of time. On those days, I often have plenty of energy for a hike or a workout, to talk with friends and make a nice dinner.
Then there are the low energy days. We all have them. I don’t always know they are coming, but there is one (every 36 days) I can usually plan on. It’s the day after the infusion I get for multiple sclerosis. The day afters used to be really bad but now I just consider them another low energy day. I used to push through low energy days. You know … no pain, no gain. But instead it was usually all pain, no gain.
Now I find the gain in resting through low energy days. I read, nap, maybe write a little, walk a little. I don’t push through. It’s not worth it. I have nothing to prove.
I know I’ll get back to the good energy days faster if I honor the low energy days.
