I might be wrong, but I think that until we experience grief and/or depression we often underestimate the amount of physical and mental effort it takes to complete everyday tasks.

Getting out of bed…effort.
Getting clean…effort.
Choosing clothes…effort.
Preparing food…effort.
Housework… effort.
Yard work…effort.
Socialising…effort.
Smiling…effort.
Laughing…effort.
Crying…effort.
Honesty…effort.
Giving…effort.
Serving…effort.
Listening…effort.
Speaking…effort.
Shopping…effort.
Paperwork…effort.
Exercise…effort.
Appointments…effort.
Driving…effort.
Working…effort.
Worshipping…effort.
Sleeping…effort.

So. Much. Effort.
