Energy Boosters?
Sun, 04-04-2010 - 8:55pm

Hi all,
Just wondered how you all cope with lack of energy? I used to be able to do so much in one day! Now I have to decide which ONE thing I'm going to do! And I hate that!

I do some light exercise and watch what I eat. I wonder sometimes if there's a plug in our bodies that gets "drained" when we turn 50?

Ideas? Suggestions?

I just remember having a friend ask what it felt to turn 50. I told him I did everything I did when I was 30 - but IT TAKES LONGER. At almost 70 (been on this board a long time), I build in "recharge" breaks when I'm working on a project. I always have a book ready to force me so sit down, have a cuppa and read a chapter.

BTW - are you drinking enough liquids? Even mild dehydration can wear you down.

As far as not being able to do all you used to do, accept it and enjoy it.
