Feeling Tired?

Fatigue, conflict, and burnout can all result
from being mired in old catagories,
trapped by old mindsets.
Ellen J. Langer (1997),
professor of Psychology
I spoke to my brother as he commuted back home after a long day at work, "I'm tired, he said. Then he added, "I'm tired because work was boring today."
So many times we are tired simply because we are bored, doing
something mindless, feeling stuck and unstimulated. Next time you are tired, try switching activities. Take a brisk walk, or read a good book outloud, or do what my brother did, call someone you love and hope she's been doing something fun.
