Let’s look at your physical energy and the importance of how you use your body—the vehicle that gets you around earth! It is the good health of your body that allows you to live a successful and happy life—yet sadly, so many people miss this. Are you treating your body well? Are you getting the recommended amount of exercise each week? Are you eating fresh, unprocessed foods and not over-eating? Are you getting enough quality rest?
It’s time to be honest and have some personal integrity with your physical energy currency. If you are going on peak capacity and burning the candle at both ends, watch out. You will run out of physical energy if you continue on this spending spree, just as you would with money. Then you will be left with nothing.
We all talk about the need for good health, but we don’t follow the rules ourselves; we deplete our bodies of this vital energy source. You only have twenty-four hours in a day and it is up to you to figure out how to utilize your energy within the allotted timeframe in order to harness your maximum creativity. Are you worn out at day’s end, or is your energy level still relatively high? How are you really using your physical energy each day? Where is it going? Are you using your energy to create valuable work in the world or in your home, or is it expended mostly by busy work and useless unproductive activities?
Please remember that your physical body and energy tie directly to your happiness and success in life. Think for a minute how, when your energy gets depleted, things begin to break down and decisions become hard. Your creativity and your motivation wane. You find yourself procrastinating, and being indecisive, frustrated, and confused.
Until next time,
