First of all, I don’t EVER intend for this blog to be a blog where I am hawking products.  I really want to ADD something tangibles to the lives of the readers of my blog.  Issues and Challenges, Advice and other pertinent Info to Baby Boomers.  But when something TRULY great comes along to me, on the level of say a new iPhone or something, I want to be able to turn my readers on to it.  That is my word.  All of these views are mine and mine alone, I don’t work for product company.

Now, onto my exhaustion.  Seriously.  I get up early, 6:30AM or so, and after an intensely difficult day of work, I am completely exhausted by 4pm or so.  That never happened until I reached my 50’s.

How did we get here so quickly? It wasn’t that long ago we were enjoying jam-packed weekends and evenings of fun without a thought to what time our favorite show’s reruns come on.

Younger friends give us a strange look when we say things like, “It starts kind of late, doesn’t it?” Or “You know, I can do one or the other, but probably not both.”  Or my favorite, “You’re younger than me, you’ll understand one day.”   And they will

Some days are better than others. Some seasons are more motivating than others. Being selective with our energy and our attention is a smart thing…something we older types know all about. And there’s physical reasons at play as well.

Maybe we’re not sleeping well. Taking medications that make us drowsy. Dealing with chronic pain or mobility issues. Even being bored can make you feel tired.

Apart from all of the usual suggestions, getting enough sleep, drinking enough water, eating right, exercising, there is one item I have been using lately which has truly changed my life.  Mushroom Coffee.  Yes Mushroom Coffee.  I heard about this on Tim Ferriss blog and bought some of it on Amazon.  It’s like a little packet with a bit of ground instant coffee along with ground lion’s mane and cordyceps mushrooms (whatever they are).  I don’t know nor do I care (as long as they are healthy and safe).  What I do know is that a cup of this Mushroom Coffee gets me going in the morning like NOTHING I have ever had. It revs you up to do battle with the world in a way more profound way than coffee–BUT there are no coffee jitters.  Amazing and true.  Just my  little tip for the day..  You may purchase at this link if you feel so inclined.
