I was talking to Ronni Bennett from Time Goes By the other day and the conversation turned toward the crucial concept of the “energy budget.”
As a close observer of elders, it has long been clear to me that a good elderhood requires careful management of one’s energy budget.
The amount of energy available for daily use diminishes with age and it is therefore very important to manage one’s energy for best effect.
I am a committed “nap taker” and I highly recommend naps to people of all ages because these rest periods help extend our range and capacity.
Kids already know this!
