Low social battery

How is everyone dealing with being social/outside again? I was happy to be around family for 4th of July weekend, but feeling super drained this week. I want to figure out ways to recharge or, increase my social battery

Totally with you on this, @GoodbyeVal! I had a very busy last few weeks, and I was EXHAUSTED. So to recharge, I made sure not to make any plans for the week following and made really simple (but tasty) meals at home every night while watching a mindless show (right now that means lots of Love Island). 

 

I hope you find your own way to recharge but wanted to share what works for me!

@GoodbyeVal I've been pushing myself to dedicate a few days to being alone, and then a day or two to hang out with my friends. Practicing this balance has helped me increase my battery and gives me time to recharge! 

@GoodbyeVal - you are not alone! I am especially booked up with outings and events in the summer time and I look forward to the weekends that are free to rest and recharge! Since these weekends are few and far between these days, I make sure to prioritize my health and wellbeing during the downtime (and even put it on the calendar to remind myself!). I go for a walk, sit out in the sun for a bit, listen to music - just ahhh me time!

I'm trying to turn some meetings into walking meetings. It's weird to ask someone "hey, is it okay if we don't zoom and just do a walking meeting," but people WELCOME it!! 

This is an incredible idea! I just joined this group, I invited my coordinator to a walking meeting next week, and she is ecstatic! She said, "Boss of the year. No DECADE!" Our office works remotely and rapidly. This is an amazing way to slow down, meet face to face, and appreciate each other. You're a dream SonesJones!
