It’s one of those days. You’re here, but not really.

It’s one of those days. A tired brain-fog unfocused day. You’re here, but not really.

You had plans, you have a routine in place and you wrote down your daily goals the night before. Except than you woke up at four am and didn’t go back to sleep, and you didn’t follow your morning routine, and it’s already late afternoon now, and what should you do?

Your mind is on standstill, but time keeps going on.

Your to-do list doesn’t care if you are tired.

Here is a list of reminders for the low-energy days:

  1. What would this look like if it were easy?

Do one thing (or don’t do something!) to bring in ease.

2. Less is more.

‘No’ is a beautiful word.

3. Stay curious.

What does it feel like to feel tired? How do you experience that in your body and your mind? Practice being the observer.

4. Active/passive? Output/input?

Check in with your body and mind and see how each is feeling. Mind is active and body is tired? Maybe do some computer work, or to catch up on undemanding tasks. Mind is tired and body has energy? Go for a walk or do some errands. It could be energizing to move around, take action or create something. Or maybe it is time to rest, to receive and be still.

5. Breathe. Breathe.
