Hi, Hey, Hello!
This word stumped me. Really bad.
It reminded me of the chocolate bar which I always thought tasted a bit weird, and I think I only had it once and that was enough. Then I started thinking about all the things I do when I need a boost, which I think is what this word is on about.
To be honest with you, I am not very good at replenishing the reserves when they are empty. I’m super good at letting them get really low but when it comes to trying to get myself back to feeling like a person I am really bad.
A work week wipes me out a lot of the time. Even on a good week I feel exhausted by the end of it and then my weekend plans mostly just involve me spending time by myself. I just need two days to not be a person and the only way that can be achieved is to basically be by myself. I am very good at that.
But that’s almost it. I just spend time away from people and consider that my boost. It’s really not much if you really think about it.
But I don’t really know how else to do it.
I mean I guess I consider exercise and reading and all that jazz as something that would give me some kind of boost. I was about to say that to be honest I do those things because they cause me joy and keep me sane which is probably in and of itself the very definition of a boost…
But for some reason it doesn’t feel like they are. I don’t why.
Maybe it’s because so much of what I do is routine at this point that I don’t necessarily notice the impacts of it anymore. I really don’t know. If I’m feeling super run down then I listen to what my body needs and usually that’s sleep. Or maybe it’s a lower impact workout. Maybe what I really need to do is just spend an evening on Netflix or some shit. I don’t know.
Although now that I think about it, maybe it’s because I have built it into my routine and my day to day life that I don’t notice the impact. Maybe because I have gotten better at listening to my body and what it needs (thank you exercise) I just treat it like second nature now.
That’s just what it is to me now.
I have had no choice over the past year or so as my mental health has taken a hit but to get better to listening to what my body needs so that I don’t feel totally drained.
So maybe that’s how I get my boost.
I’ve just built it into my life over time and not even realised it…
