Do you have to think really hard at your job? I discovered an interesting phenomenon a few years ago, when I worked a month-and-a-half-long temp job at International Wood Industries. It was hard work, and there was no slacking. Whenever I had to wait for the next pallet to be brought over, I would sweep my work space. To make more money, I worked all the hours I was allowed to work. Nine hours per day Monday through Thursday, and eight hours on Friday and Saturday. Funny thing is, while the work required plenty of physical exertion, it was repetitive. There was no decision making to be done, and it became automatic. I found I could actually let my mind go blank while letting my muscles do all the work. When I got home each day, I took a shower, and I felt as refreshed as I could be. I wasn't tired at all!
