Recently the flow of water in our kitchen sink reduced to a trickle and was causing a lot of inconvenience. Washing the dishes was a huge nuisance. We assumed that the problem was due to some repairs being undertaken in our apartment building. We managed as best we could for about a week. When the lady in the apartment below ours also started complaining, we decided to get in the plumber to fix the problem.
The plumber came in and all he did was unscrew the nozzle of the tap, and take out some sediment that had collected there. The water pressure was back to normal and it took him all of two minutes to do that! I must tell you we felt a little foolish for having ‘endured’ a week of low water pressure – when we could have solved the problem ourselves.
This incident made me think of how often we learn to live with low-energy on a day-to-day basis. We don’t work our optimum, when all it might take to get our energy levels back to normal may be a little change in life-style.
