Whether at work, participating in exercise, studying for uni or simply writing a blog entry everyone hits walls. The question for today is how do you overcome those walls and push past them?
To overcome an obsticle you first need to know what the obsticle is. More often than not the actual issue has very little to do with the problem you’re tackling and much more to do with the incidentals. You start to struggle with studying for an assessment or working on a big project not because of the question or challenge, but because of the mental and physical exhaustion that sets in after hours and hours of focussed cognitive thinking which depletes the body of oxygen.
There are many quick fixes to the immediate effects of exhaustions with various degrees of success and even more varying degrees of health. One of the more successful and healthy solutions to exhaustion is exercise, funnily enough. However this is not always easily done, nor is it a quick, quiet solution.
My personal favorite is the always reliable and extremely unhealthy option of indulging in some good, old-fashioned caffeine, be it coffee, tea or an energy drink. The side-effects of caffeine use are well documented and some argue that drinking caffeine at all actually increases your likelihood of feeling exhausted.
And so, in the interest of finding a better way to overcome the exhaustion that comes from the life I lead I ask
How do you overcome ‘the wall?’
