Exhausted before the year’s begun?
We crave downtime at the end of the year and then proceed to exhaust ourselves over the break. This means that we start the New Year with even less energy than we had at the end of the last.
How often do you come home at the end of the day with work circling around in your head? You feel totally exhausted, yet you can’t sleep because you’re going over your to-do list, stressing over the things you didn’t get done during the day, or re-living the things you wish you’d done differently… the list is endless (as you well know).
