To what extent do you monitor your own energy levels during the day and plan your activities accordingly? An active or passive break if needed? Do you design your living environment to give you the most energy? Or, do you recognize the tendency to keep working at the expense of decent breaks? Skipping a meal and later having a strong craving for sugar? Running empty on social contacts that bring you nothing?
