At one point I switched to, "I won't be able to do that." Seems to invite fewer questions.

This is the way. Switching to a more accurate reason is also a way of accepting the fact you are low on energy. Its a step towards improvement :)

A business-coded variant you can use if you want is "I don't have the bandwidth for that". It's been effective for me so far.

Bandwidth or "headspace" are my favourites, the second one being almost exactly equivalent to "I can't be bothered to think about that".

Depending on who I am talking to I might say "I don't have the energy."
