Maybe it's because it's that time of year that I seem to be constantly ill. The post-Christmas slump - the hangover from eating too much of the wrong things, missing the shiny lights and smiling faces. Maybe it's just January - I usually struggle during these first months of the year, and it's been so cold.
December was a really busy month - the panic-buying of gifts, meeting friends for drinks, dinners, parties - I felt like I barely had time to myself. True to form, I got ill when I stopped for Christmas. Haven't felt quite right since.

Some mornings are ok - I'll get myself to the gym, do some chores or some work. Some mornings aren't. And by mid afternoon I'm completely done. I am defeated. I lie frustrated at my own body, wondering why I can't do so much lately. Sometimes I give in and nap. Sometimes I power through and tears sting my eyes when I know I have to get myself up to work, or to fulfil plans I've made. Headaches almost daily. Stomach in knots.
This morning I woke up tired, but I know I'll feel worse later regardless, so I'll get on. I feel better when I've achieved something.
How do you deal with the lack of motivation/energy in the winter?
