It took me many bad cycles of spend and crash before I finally started to understand the need to build up a solid reserve of energy before an activity. I had to flip the whole approach around so that first I built up my energy then I used some for a specific need. But I stopped before I was fully spent and I rested again. Overtime, the reserve built up until I had a deep well of energy to call upon when needed. But I still made sure that I continued to regulate my activity so that as I began to get well again, I maintained the energy reserve. So unlike the man with the hammer, I didn’t use up every drop of energy day to day.
Eventually my reserve was solid enough that true healing began and I was able to walk a path back to wellness. How do you manage your energy reserves? What are your strategies?
