Fatigue taking its toll

I figured out why I haven’t been writing as much or doing as much in the mornings. It’s fatigue. I have a new found respect for people who have to get up early everyday and go to work. I’ve been doing that for the past month or so and it’s taking its toll. I guess not compensating by going to bed earlier might also be making a difference. So I guess that’s what I’ll be doing from now.

There has been only a slight shift in my working hours daily, but it’s enough to put me out of whack. When I don’t have the pressure of having early classes, it really does lift a weight off my back and I can take things much slower. This has a flow on effect to my mood too, which is not good 🙁

When I complained about having 8 classes, it would have been fine if they were 60 minute classes, but they’re not, they’re 105 minutes. So I guess I have to compensate by taking it easier in other aspects of my life!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.


I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.


On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.
