You know, I recently spent 2 weeks in Spain competing in the World Championships of Freestyle kayaking. When I got back I was so tired, physically. All my muscles ached and sleep didn't seem to be enough.The good thing was though, that I could still work on my business while I was out there. And it was such an inspiring, fresh environment full of explorations, new challenges and connections that in the sessions I had with my clients, I was incredibly energised and had some amazing session while I was out there!
Have you ever felt so physically drained but emotionally you're on a high so you just keep going. Like you're connected to this unlimited source of energy?
Who has felt that way?
But perhaps you've also felt the opposite?
When you've ate well, slept well... but you just feel drained. You wake up anxious, got no motivation to do anything and can't focus on what you're doing. Mentally and emotionally drained!
If yes, then you know how heavy it feels!
The amount of responsibility we take for energising ourselves, directly correlates to the performance of our business, the culture we create and in the long term - the legacy we're able to leave.
So if growing an amazing business and leaving a legacy is what you want to do, you're going to need energy for that.
So how can we avoid being totally drained?
There are 3 ways we get our energy. We need to be on top of all 3 of them to thrive. Sometimes, when one is particularly high - it can make up for the lower two, but to be at our very best every single day, we need to know how to energise oursleves in all 3 ways every day.
What energises our body is PLAY and NOURISHMENT. So run, dance, jump, sing... do what you need to do and give your body REAL food it needs.
An energised mind is a focussed one. This doesn't happen when you don't know what to focus on.
"So we set goals?" I hear you say. But blindly setting goals doesn't bring focus on it's own. Knowing WHY you set those goals is what's going to give you the CLARITY your mind needs to be laser focused.
What we focus on is what we act on. And what we act on creates our reality. So feed your mind NOURISHING thoughts through visualisations and affirmations.
What we think affects how we feel. But the more we practice stabilising our emotions, the less power our thoughts have over how we feel.
Meditation, nature and moments of stillness are the keys to mastering finding CALM, being fully PRESENT and finding emotional energy.
Do you have the routines in place to energise yourself daily?
