Is nobody tired?
Working up towards the exam my study intensity gradually increased to bat**** crazy for the last two weeks of may.
Have been cutting everything out of my life besides eating healthy, regular exercise and decent sleep. Did not see family for a few months, no alcohol for a few months, etc. Really good for your efficiency btw..
But now I’m tired. Not overworked, but just tired, No more goals to work towards. I feel no need to stay in perfect condition, both mentally and physically. Daily routine is easy to slack off without anybody noticing. I don’t see any challenge that can really tickle my brain.
Don’t you guys need some time to get back in focus?
If I could give one advice towards myself and maybe others. Beware for the downturn after the exam. Don’t pick up a bottle of beer and see where the next few weeks will bring you. Don’t give yourself permission to let it all slide. Profit from your iron discipline you’ve build up during the studies and put it to good use. Party hard, go shopping and set new goals to keep yourself going strong. Register for a marathon or something.
