How to Overcome Exhaustion


Are you exhausted?  It seems like almost everyone these days talks about how exhausted they are!   Good news!  We’ve found some things that work, depending on whether you are Introverted or Extraverted.

INTROVERTS often run themselves ragged. Because this is an Extraverted world (75% of people are Extraverts) they often feel they are unable to keep up — but they try!  It is important for Introverted people to realize that they need time alone, every single day.  Time doing something they enjoy, in order to recharge their batteries.  It is not a luxury; it is essential for their well-being.  We find that most Introverts are relieved when they understand that this is how they are designed.  When they allow themselves the time and space to rest and relax, without guilt, they report feeling much more energized.  How simple is that!

EXTRAVERTS often push through to complete things without taking breaks.  Extraverts feel they should be able to just keep on working.   But, pushing through just continues to wear them out and lowers their productivity.  It is important for Extraverts to realize that they get energy from interacting with people and things in their environment.  Going for a quick walk around the block or taking a short break to talk on the phone or visit with someone reenergizes them and will put them back in high gear.  Once they understand this about themselves and develop a rhythm of taking short breaks, they report far more overall energy.  Again,a simple solution that yields big results!
