3 simple do-able actions to utilise your energy for best results

 

Are you energised? Do you find that everything you work on has your full energy?

It can be difficult. However there are ways to effectively channel your energy into the areas of your Life that need it most.

Exercisesorry, you can’t escape this one. Regular exercise, of the physical kind, will leave you feeling better in the long term and therefore will leave you feeling much more energised. Now, exercise of the mind cannot be left out. 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 breaks down any mental barriers…it frees up to imagine & create fresh ideas. These fresh ideas are then stored as mental energy reserves for use later on. You can also free up your mind’s energy reserves by de-cluttering. Rid your mind of valueless thoughts & focus on the thoughts that will give you joy…that will stimulate you…that will energise you.

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 energy being used on non value thoughts & activities.

Focus your energyWe often get pulled from one thing to another. This can be a draining experience & I am sure you have experienced this numerous times. Especially if you are a parent. We don’t have unlimited energy. We can improve the levels of our energy reserves however they can still rundown. That’s when we need to recharge…(see next point)

So we have a challenge. To do what has to be done with maximum energy, we do need to focus or isolate, what needs our attention. What are the important things in our daily lives that deserve maximum energy? What are the things or people who steal our energy? How often during a day, do we 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 simply 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. Focussing your energy where it will be best rewarded will be certainly worthwhile.

 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”… whatever you determine necessary. Then you are able 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.

    Exercise works for me as well. There is nothing like a good walk, but more aerobic workouts are helpful too. Focusing is one that I am working on this year! I often feel that I am jumping from one thing to the next and am working on tying them all together in an organized way. Taking a break is essential. We all need to refresh from time to time. Great ideas – thanks for sharing!

    I totally agree with you about exercise. It focuses my mind into the present moment, refreshes my mind by getting rid of the redundant chatter, it invigorates and fuels my energy, and puts me in a great mood!

    Your post is great dose of ENERGY!

    🙂
