Extreme Fatigue and Lack of Motivation

@olivia22819 @artscaping @lonelylady @marysunshine When I was working, each morning I got there about pretty early, in order to do a beautiful walk around the complex. It was always quiet in the morning, with birds. Then I would write a haiku, or journal, and start my long workday. I was working for the Court system, so it was pretty stressful. As I gradually got sick, my walks became shorter. The stress mounted not only from doing less exercise, but not starting my day refreshed. The walks stopped altogether when I no longer had the energy to do them. It was proven to me personally that the exercise is a big factor for me feeling better, and I am walking again. It feels good, and now when I have to miss a day [like today, due to early doctor appt], I look forward to tomorrow in order to get back into the swing. I want to work up to walking in to town to the post office, and home again!

Oh wow! Who knew. I’m glad to hear that you are looking forward to it and getting back in the stride of it all. I’m finding it’s very important to have a exercise routine when you have a stressful job 😆

I have a problem though. I work from home and start at 5 in the morning. I would like to do something before work to help my mood but I am unable to get up earlier than I have too. I’m irritable in the mornings.
