How energised do You feel? Are you able to give your work and play your maximum energy?
I know that it can be difficult to do this all the time. However there are ways to effectively channel your energy into the areas of your Life that need it most.
Here are 3 do able actions/lifestyle choices that you can take to maximise your energy output.
These are my experiences. I’m no exercise physiologist or mind matter Guru however I have found, over many years, that these 3 tips have given me Value and they may well do so for You.
I would suggest that you make these a part of your priority goals.
1. Exercise your Body And Mind at the same time
Exercise, of the physical kind, will leave you feeling better when you maintain a regular schedule. Your body is your “temple” and your driving force, so due care is essential.
Exercise of the mind is also a must. For me, the two go hand in hand [maybe that’s just me?].
When I exercise, my mind gets a healthy break as well. The exercise allows me to break down any mental barriers… it essentially frees my mind of the clutter that has built up during the day. My mind is then able to be better used for imaginative and creative purposes. And yours will as well.
When you are de cluttering, you are creating space for more energising thoughts and fresh ideas.
In summary, your exercise schedule need not be of Olympic proportions. It can be whatever… but it needs to be. Just start doing something if you are not already doing so.
Let your body & mind enjoy the experience. De-clutter the mind, free up the energy that is being used on non value thoughts & activities, so they can be used on productive activities.
2. Focus your energy
You can often get pulled from one thing to another in day to day life. This can be a draining experience & I am sure you have experienced this numerous times. Especially if you are a parent. You don’t have unlimited energy. You can improve the levels of your energy reserves however they can still rundown. That’s when you need to recharge [see also tip 3]
So the challenge is this. To do what has to be done with maximum energy, you do need to focus or isolate, what needs your attention.
A couple of questions that are critical here:
What are the important things in your daily life that deserve your maximum energy?
What are the things or people who steal your energy?
How often during a day, do you use up energy on things that really aren’t all that important?
In summary, to have the desired energy levels for the important people & activities in your Life, you need to focus on your priorities.
Schedule your energy for the “peak times”.That may be family time, an important work deadline, dinner with a loved one, planning your week, working on your goals.
Focusing your energy where it will be best rewarded, is your main goal.
3. Recharge then turbocharge
Take a break. Simple? Often it’s not, however it is vital.
You can build up your energy reserves with regular exercise & maintain effective energy levels by scheduling your focus. Your energy levels will still run low at some point, despite all of this intent.
Recharging yourself can be done during each day simply by taking ‘time out’. As an example, it may be just 5 or 10 minutes each hour or so, or a full 30 minute break at “low energy times” during the day, whatever you determine necessary.
This will allow you to turbocharge through your next period of high energy use. When you have the energy, Life seems so much easier.
Why not schedule weekend breaks or make long weekends [3 or 4 days] every 3 or 4 months? And take an annual holiday, you deserve it and so do those near and dear to you. Remember when you recharge then you can turbocharge.
When your energy is used wisely and effectively, the results will astound you.
