Create More Energy In Your Life

Would you like to create more energy in your life?

If so, you are not alone.  Feeling depleted, and/or unmotivated, is not uncommon in today’s world.

If your energy is seriously lacking, you should first consult with your healthcare practitioner to properly address any serious underlying health conditions.

Lacking physical energy, motivation, or both?

It’s helpful clarify whether you are lacking physical energy, motivation, or both, so you can seek the underlying causes more efficiently.  Physical energy and motivation go hand in hand, but one aspect may stand out for you more.

Knowing which you are dealing with can help you more efficiently identify the underlying causes and choose long-term solutions.

Understand that Life is the Flow of Energy.

Quantum physics now says we are made of energy, not matter (read more here).  That understanding can help you further determine how your energy is moving, and what to change.

Create More Energy - follow your heart

To Create More Energy, Consider:

  1. Whether your energy is flowing too freely and leaking from you.  
    Some examples of this include giving to situations that do not serve you, and being in unhealthy relationships that chronically drain you.
  2. Your energy may be “stuck” and unavailable.  
    Some examples of this are health issues, tension, pain, and stress.  All of this ties in with your beliefs and mindset as well.  Where are you blocking yourself from reaching your full potential, living and loving unconditionally?Address your health issues, shift your beliefs, adjust your mindset. Open to your worth. Receive. Relax and de-stress.
  3. You may be spending your energy in ways that don’t serve you.  
    Fear-based choices of the Ego drain you, vs. love-infused heart-felt choices that motivate and sustain you. Giving of yourself conditionally (i.e., with unrealistic expectations) could also be a drain. Avoid negative situations, including news, people, etc.Are your fears realistic?  Can you shift them to take off the edge and allow yourself to follow your heart (which is fueled by Source energy: unconditional LOVE)?  Are your activities ones you enjoy, and supportive of your Soul’s intentions for this lifetime?
  4. Refuel.
    create more energy with healthy foodThis boils down to receiving sufficiently from Source, whether that means prayer, and spiritual connection, or general self-care and nourishment. Quality food, hydration, sleep, rest, meditation, and exercise are also ways of refueling from Source energy.  If nothing else, in the moment, breathe deeply to relax and refresh.
  5. Maintain balance between giving and receiving, as well as doing and being.  
    This should be self-explanatory. Input and output must be equal, right?

Spend Your Time Wisely to Create More Energy.

Managing your time wisely, and maintaining a balanced life are both important in maintaining your energy.  If you need refreshers, re-visit my previous articles: “Mastering Time Management for Greater Fulfillment” and “Create a Balanced Life for Fulfillment and Well-Being”.

Nothing will change unless you are aware that there is a problem, decide and commit to taking action, and follow-through.  A doable plan is helpful.  Where might you start?

Create more energy with good self careRemember, mindset is everything.  A positive outlook can help maintain your commitment and determination as you create more energy in your life.

Above all, be gentle with yourself.  Change takes time.

Create a balanced life for fulfillment and well-being

Create a Balanced Life for Fulfillment and Well-Being

Do you desire a more balanced life, but feel stuck when it comes to creating one?

A balanced life means something different to everyone.  What would a balanced life look and feel like to you?

To me, it means feeling calm, grounded, clear, focused, and on-track with a sense of connection, purpose, and meaning.  It also means having a handle on your life without being pulled too much in one direction.

How do you know if your life is out of balance?

Only you truly know how you are feeling and what you are thinking.  Being honest with yourself, listening to, and heeding those persistent whispers calling for change, before they become shouts, will help you find balance.

What is your Inner Guidance telling you?  Is it whispering “imbalance” to you through feelings of stress, discontent, agitation, being spread thin, and/or irritability? Fatigue? Depression? Health issues?  Simply a persistent desire for things to be different?

If you are experiencing any of the above, ask yourself if there are certain areas in your life needing more, or even less, attention.

Where do you start?

Assess if you have a balanced lifeAssess your life, state of mind, and how you are feeling.  Where would you like to feel more balance? What are you neglecting?

Would you like more balance among:

  • Doing vs. being
  • Giving vs. receiving
  • Being responsible, vs. being care-free
  • Being alone vs. with others?

Delving a little deeper, do you feel balanced in time and energy spent on your inner vs. your external world?

Inner World:

  • mind/thoughts,
  • emotional life,
  • spiritual life, and
  • physical health and wellbeing

External World:

  • work life,
  • social life,
  • family life, and
  • recreation/fun time

Are you so focused on the activities of life that you are unaware of what is going on inside of you?  Conversely, are you so focused on what is going on within you that you are missing out on living life?

Going deeper…..

You may feel balanced between those two main areas, but desire to balance out the aspects within one or the other. For example, you may feel a need to spend less time thinking, and more time feeling, and connecting to spirit.

Within one or more of those aspects you may desire more balance. For example in the aspect of family, you may desire greater balance between fulfilling family responsibilities and creating healthy boundaries.

Spending time and energy in any of these ways can be positive.  However, excess in any one area can turn that positive into something detrimental to your well-being in the end.

Living a balanced life decreases stress, improves health, and increases well-being.

A balanced life is less stressful and healthier

How do you find your balance?

Knowing what values you hold close to your heart is key in creating a balanced life.  Ultimately, it is the value within that you instinctively seek in your most fulfilling choices. Do what you love.

I teach my clients a process to get their head out of the way, and listen to what their hearts value. Choosing to spend their time and energy in ways that embody those heart-held values helps reduce stress, and increase their fulfillment.

Make a list of your values, and verify that the ways you spend the majority of your time and energy embody those values. Are your values present or absent in the aspects of your life in which you have chosen to create more balance?

How do you create a balanced life?

Commit to being balanced, and embodying that commitment in every decision.

Set intentions.

Make a plan.  Identify tasks needed to achieve your intentions daily, weekly, monthly, annually.  Start with small, baby-step changes.  Then, when you start seeing results, its easier to maintain and build momentum.

Make time to check in with yourself and reassess on a daily basis.  Notice what has and hasn’t worked.  What changes, if any, do you choose to make?

Empower yourself ahead of time to thwart the negative voices and challenges.

Know ahead of time what inner stuff will get in your way so you can be prepared when the resistance rears its head.  It always does.

Know:

  • how you stayed focused in the past when you accomplished the most important things
  • what you need to remember to overcome those worries, fears, doubts, anxieties, and self-sabotaging thoughts
  • how it felt to have succeeded despite the parts of yourself that had a difficult time
  • what you need to tell those parts of yourself
  • how to be kind to yourself so that being balanced feels good

Connect with someone who can be your cheerleader, witness, and support person to keep you focused, supported, motivated.

A balanced life

As with any change, it takes time and practice to create new habits.

Give yourself a minimum of 3 months to establish new habits and patterns.  If you stay on track with this intentional process for that long, chances are good you will create lasting new habits and feel more balanced and fulfilled going forward.
