How do you Beat Exhaustion?
I've only been doing this for a few months and I'm tired! In Aussie speak we say "stuffed", but I don't know if that's a description that translates well across the world, you may think I've over eaten.
The thing is, most of us newbies are doing this on the side while holding down full or nearly full time jobs and still managing our families. It's a hard gig, and I've even come down with a couple of illnesses, which is not like me. Any strategies you would care to share regarding sustaining energy over the long haul would be gratefully appreciated.
My limited energy (something I didn't realise would be a problem), has led me to change my game plan. I want a location independent business because my daughters and grandkids live in a different country to my husband and me. I'm changing tack and going for local seo because I want a business that I can largely outsource. I want to set up enough business so I don't need to renew my day job contract in July. I'm a social worker and this was reinforced today when I thought the smell of cat urine in a family's home that I visited would cause me to faint. I thought what am I doing, I'm too old for multiple cats, their urine, ferets and a pet snake.
I want to work like a bat out of hell for the next 7 months so that I can take it a bit easier from then on in and spend some time with my family. I need all your suggestions for energising myself in the weekend and evenings. I am reluctant to drink much coffee in the evenings because then I can't sleep and that is definitely unsustainable.
