A little irony, a great chuckle

The other night , as I crawled into bed at about midnight, it didn't escape me that while I was trying to read an article called "The Exhaustion Cure"  I was doing all I could to to stay awake to finish it (and to be honest, I didn't make it).     The article was describing 10 ways to beat exhaustion. Meanwhile,  I'm fighting, to keep my eyes from closing, and my head is doing that little plop thing when you are actually falling asleep sitting up.

I'll give you a cure for exhaustion- don't start your own business.  Because if you are anything like me, no matter how much I get done, I can think of numerous things I haven't gotten to yet!    The person who wrote this must have lived with Small Business Owners for a while.   There are  causes, such as 'leaky boundaries' and 'information overload'.  This all applies to me, and everyone who is responsible for creating a company and making it a success.  A few hours of sleep can repair most of this, and when it's too much-  you have to take a little time out.

They want you to start a journal. Are they nuts?  Add another thing to my schedule? I'm already reading in the powder room- lest I waste a single minute.   Oh no,  I'm not ready to retire and play golf all day. But I do like the ocassional golf game, and a day at the beach.    

I do agree with the basics listed- Get enough (but not too much) sleep, eat right, stay hydrated, get plenty of excercise and limit caffeine.    I do take a break every once in a while and run up and down the stairs to my office to get my single cup of coffee .....

The article was written by Hillari Dowdle and can be found in Whole Living/Body & Soul (which I don't subscribe to- but they were kind enough to send me a free copy this month).
