Fatigue

​https://youtu.be/-sLydcjPcyI

So watching this video really made me think. 

There is a point at night where my brain is on but really not functioning. It is harder for me to think through anything and if I’m playing a game it is harder to win.

I mostly just took this for granted. 

I considered the fatigue to just be part of life. I have a great many things that I see now really aren’t just “part of life”. A colleague was sick because of overwork, but said that there were things to do so she couldn’t stop. She’s a mom so I get it. However if a mom is unwell and can’t help her kids is she really doing her best? Shouldn’t the concept of taking care of yourself, nurturing yourself in order to better help others be a part of the game plan??
