Speaking to a group at Saint Mary's in Mundelein last week, author Matthew Kelly proclaimed "Time is NOT our most valuable resource. Energy is. Despite what Franklin Covey did for us in the 80's and 90's, none of us can get more time. We can, however get more energy. And our experience of life expands with energy."
I agree. Don't you? Doesn't your life feel fuller and more like "life" when you're filled with energy? Who of us wouldn't want more energy? And who of us feels like we always have enough consistent energy?
I'm convinced that we would all do well to ask the question whenever we have a choice, "Will this give me more or less energy?" Since nothing can give you more than twenty-four hours today, you might as well do the things that offer a better, fuller, richer, and more life-charged experience of time.
So here are a few things that can increase your energy TODAY:
Eat Less "white stuff." No matter how much we all love the quick burst from cookies, muffins, bagels, and buns. You gotta admit: The crash later isn't worth the carbs now. (I still need help in this area however.... Knowing doesn't always mean doing, does it?)
Forgive them: You know its eating your own mind, your own soul and your own energy. Let it go. Forgive them. Life will really be better and your own bitterness doesn't work.
Sleep regularly: Forget college late nights and inconsistent times. Go to bed at or near the same time and get up at or near the same time. Look at this as your "rhythm of life."
Exercise: Especially outdoors. Interesting how we get more energy when we expend more. Like a lot of things, huh? Go figure!
Do More of What You're Great At: Know what kind of work you do really well and what gives you energy. Focus on doing more of this.
Do Less of What You're
All ears for more ways to gain energy!
