Being too tired

There are two different types of feeling tired.

  1. The feeling you have as you're about to start an activity. Once you actually do it, your mood changes and you find you're glad you did it.
  2. The second kind persists throughout the activity itself. You find you struggle with pushing through more than five minutes of it. If you feel like this for weeks at a time, your habits are probably unsustainable.
