When I was in the Navy, one of the most common questions military spouses asked me was, "How do you stay so fit working these long hours?" Well, many of them worked long hours, too. While we were out in the field, they were raising young families and managing a household, often as a full-time job.
Benjamin Franklin nailed it when he said, "Fatigue is the best pillow." True story, Benny. There's nothing like pushing your body so far past exhaustion that you'd willingly, even longingly, take a nap on a concrete slab.
