I am so tired at the moment. My new job is keeping me really busy; each day (10-12 hours at the moment) is full of new challenges that sap me of my physical and mental energy. Not that I am complaining about it... it's kinda like running a marathon, hard work, exhausting but will be well worth it in the end.
I am embarking on a significant change program at work, which despite the acceptance that I have gained in my new job, still requires some delicate and thoughtful management to negotiate the needs of each of my staff members. More of that soon.
But this week it has seemed that I haven't been able to get enough sleep! Sometimes I feel like I need a bit more, just a quick kip during lunch to help me power through the afternoon. I might try this at Ross' suggestion:
- Sit in a chair at a table.
- Clasp a quarter (other coins will work) in between the thumb and forefinger of your right hand (your left hand will work as well).
- Place the quarter edge onto a plate or saucer (basically on to any surface that will make a sharp noise when the quarter hits it).
- Close your eyes.
- The sound of the quarter falling when your fingers release it will wake you up and you will feel refreshed.
Anyone else got any ideas to help recharge during the day (not involving wheatgrass shots)?
