Man, I wish I had a nickle…
Usually this is followed up with a request for some kind of natural, healthy speed. What I want to say is “Yes. I do. Go home, turn off the lights and the phone, lay down, go to sleep.” What I actually say is, well, that is what I actually say.
People will immediately come up with a 1000 reasons they can’t fill that prescription. They all basically boil down to “the world will come to an end and we’ll all die if I don’t stay awake doing stuff”. Believe me, I was convinced for a very long time that the world would stop if I fell asleep before midnight! Psst… it isn’t true.
The cold hard truth is, if you don’t have any energy it’s because you already used yours up. You spent it all. It is gone! And you’ll only get it back in two ways… sleep and food. When I say sleep, I mean uninterrupted, droolin on your pillow, dead-to-the-world sleep. When I say food, I mean, a nutrient dense, calorically sparse, vegetable-based diet with adequate animal protein and essential fatty acids to meet all your needs (we can talk about this part later).
