I’ve suffered from the lack of energy spiral. I feel a bit tired today, so I choose NOT to exercise or exert any effort and sit on the couch, or at the computer working and surfing what’s new on “faceplace.” Before you know it, its been a couple of months since you’ve worked out, your energy levels have plummeted and you feel as if you can’t drag yourself off the couch!
The antidote is simply the polar opposite. Get up and move! Even if it’s just to the end of your driveway, down the stairs and back up a time or two… Just start moving and those energy levels will begin to move more in the positive direction.
I dealt with depression for years, one of the things I found was that my energy levels went up and my depression levels began going down as I would move more!
