Parenting tiresome and mood killing?!
Being a parent is not easy, late night, long days, working, interruptions in the night. To start early in the morning again. Where do you find the energy? How do you make sure you don’t get grumpy, frustrated, or act out on others? I went on a search and discovered something interesting.
The tired dad.
We where on a holiday it was hot not just 1 day the whole 2 weeks that we where gone. Our eldest son could not express him self that well and started acting out. I know I get grumpy when I am tired and if the sun is burning hot with not much shade to hide, I get a bit grumpy as well. I felt tired, unhappy. This moment for me was the point where I thought I am not going on a caffeine high to feel energetic or wait till my son grows up I wanted change.
The decision to be energetic.
I decided I wanted to change, I needed to change, I wanted to feel energetic again but did not know how or what I had to do to get the feeling again.
The discovery that changed how I look at my energy levels.
What I found is that we have three major types of energy, our physical energy, our mental energy, and our emotional energy. After a long day of working, we drained most of our mental energy, if I told you that up to 30% of your energy can be used just by thinking, working, or simply said by using your brain. You probably will understand that you can get tired of a day’s work. You drain your mental capacity; your head is full, and you need to tap in to the other source of energy to get you going.
Draining energy or gaining energy.
To conclude if you feel tired you probably have been draining energy on one or more of the energy levels. The best way to change you energy is to change the type of energy you use. Let call it change your state. For example when your mentally drained use your physical energy to recharge you energy as a whole. By going for a run you clear out your head and will magically feel more energy flowing through your body.
