It’s *Think it Thursday* and I’m sharing with you the secret to more energy.
I’m teaching you something today that is my lifeline.
Some of you know I have chronic fatigue and it’s a constant challenge.
But this concept I’m telling you about, is a game changer.
Because we all get exhausted and worn out, especially as a mom.
My secret – energy management.
We hear a lot about time management, but the truth is that if you had more energy, you would make much better use of your time, right?
You can’t create more hours in the day, but you can create more energy.
There are certain things you do that energize you – maybe it’s alone time, maybe it’s social time. Maybe it’s laughing or creating. Take a minute to notice what energizes you.
There are other things that require more mental and emotional energy. Leading kids in chores, balancing the budget, or sifting through your schedule for the week… stack these up and it could leave you spent, exhausted, with nothing left to give.
The key is to plan and manage your activities based on how they impact your energy. The right combination is all the difference.
Think about this. Time is finite. There are 24 hour every day, period.
Energy is fluid. You can manage your energy by building in plenty of activities that increase your energy, amongst those that drain it.
So today, here is your assignment:
List energizing and energy-depleting activities. Plan them in to support you having sustained energy. Revisit this idea often and just notice how you have the ability to manage your energy.
