The most exhausting thing you can do is to be inauthentic.

She's right, of course, but I sometimes have trouble discerning what authentic means for me.

tess--my thoughts are that when "being me" becomes exhausting, it's probably a good time to check and see if i am really being myself or trying hard to be who i think i should be (i.e. this rings of inauthenticity to me.) often listening to my body helps with the discernment process! it's just remembering to listen that gets tricky for me :-)
