Have you noticed that there are different kinds of fatigue?
Physical fatigue: the kind you feel after doing an intense workout at the gym or in the garden 🙂 and you fall into your bed at night with the feeling of pure physical exhaustion and in the hopes of a good, fulfilling night of rest.
Mental fatigue: the kind you feel after working your mind to it’s breaking point, thinking hard, cramming for a test, and at the end of the day you veg out because your brain is too tired to function anymore.
Emotional fatigue: the kind you feel when you’ve been doing work to grow yourself personally.
Physical and mental fatigue are easy to recognize, but emotional fatigue is different somehow. I’ve noticed it when I’ve worked in my journal and asked questions about what’s really important to me in my life, and what does living simply and intentionally really mean to me.
Can you share a story of when you felt fatigued? What kind of fatigue was it – physical, mental, or emotional…or maybe something else?
