How is your energy?
At the start of each week, and especially at the commencement of a new year, there’s a pressure to begin with a full tank of positive mojo.
We straighten our tiaras.
We create the to do list.
We aspire to get more done, even if it means we tap into our energy reserves.
The thing is, we don’t have a limitless supply of energy, no matter how many Red Bulls we drink or how many kilos of kale we endure. Sometimes, we think we’ll just rest later on, but the reality is we have to conserve our energy now, in order to see the future benefit.
This is why it’s so important to play the long game – to think about what your future needs, keeping in mind what you do now. It also includes choosing your battles carefully, deciding what really deserves your time and attention. Like being aware of someone or something that tries to steal what energy you do have.
This week, set the intention to Treasure Your Energy. Imagine your energy as something of precious value, like a treasured object or an asset that needs to last you a lifetime. Then ask yourself if you’re spending that energy in a way that protects it, nurtures it and means it will go the distance. Do you need to pace yourself, or prioritise what – or who – gets your time and attention; only share the energy you have, if you feel it’s in your very best interest.
