The other day I was co-facilitating a group and found myself feeling tired. My tendency, when tired, is to float along with whatever I am doing, resigned to the fact that my energy is low and that there’s nothing to be done until it is over and I can get to a private place to recharge myself. What that means is that my attention in the interim would be diffused. This time, however, knowing that it was important for me to stay focused and alert, I took steps to change my state right there and then. Within a few minutes, I felt clear and refreshed.
