So, as many people have posted all over the place, back to back events are having a huge drain on available energy. It can be extremely frustrating and disheartening to have a lot to do, but no energy to do it.
What if energy regains throughout the day? Maybe 1 energy every 15 minutes. That would give you 96 in a day (nothing game breaking), or 32 after 8 hours (like sleeping). It gives you something to start the day with, and not too much where it negates the rewards from inns, greenhouses, or picking energy up from the map.
I think this is a good balance that would help ease the strain just a bit.
(I couldn't find this suggested before anywhere, so sorry if I missed it)
