Sometimes your body is tired, and you don't even know it. Do you find your thoughts becoming excessively gloomy, depressing, or disheartening and cannot figure out why? Logical analysis not making sense? Try to remember that your body needs to be level for your mind to be level. Going away to college, I have experienced this several times -- simply not being aware of the needs of my body, especially when I can sense something is wrong, but have no idea what it is. This seems to be a fairly clear indicator of ESE duality. But we aren't always going to be lucky enough to have an ESE around, or if we are away on our own, we may not have many friends who will come and check up on us. So here are some things to keep in mind. (Feel free to add anything)
- Take a nap / get some sleep. Are you tired and not aware of it? Do you feel compelled to do or finish something, but find yourself with a great deal of psychological trauma over the affair? Metaphysical questions keep popping up, and you cannot find an answer? An LII mind can, and often will, keep churning, regardless of internal or external physical conditions. So if you make sure you've enough sleep, otherwise you're not using your time or energy efficiently.
- "can easily drive himself to starvation". Seems like some sort of fun cliche, right? Well it is not. As above, it is very easy to forget about food, especially because we can "just go a little bit more" and "make something a little bit better". That process can keep going, but the quality of everything declines the less upkeep you make on your instruments. You only have one body, one mind - take care of the only instruments you have.
- No Man is an Island. (Dammit - it's true, isn't it.) Well I hate it just as much of the next LII. But after years of experiencing it, friends and family DO help make a difference. Generally, good friends are people you can trust enough to accept certain forms of Fe from, which helps maintain things. But even besides Fe or socionics, everyone is human, and certain energies - just talking to someone - actually can help. Especially remember to keep in touch with your family when you can. I know I don't do it enough.
- Take a shower. Just do it. Even if you just think you might need one, chances are you could use one. You may not smell, but showers do a body good. If you can establish some sort of rhythm with taking showers, and eating and so on, all the better.
Do these things, and take care of Ti, and you should be okay.
