What is boosting your energy this week?
Could it be…
a small win
a new thing you learnt
a chat with a friend…
It’s good to take note of what gives you energy. When you notice what boosts your energy, you can use these boosts to benefit:
- your life experience and
- your outcomes
Benefits to your life experience and outcomes is quite significant, right?
All you have to do is notice what is giving you energy and then harness that energy.
Here’s where to start:
Over the next week, make a note (pen to paper or digital app) of when your energy is high.
Experiencing high energy can be felt in different ways. It might be a feeling of enthusiasm, engagement, productivity or connection. However you describe it, the point is that you feel your overall energy is high or “flowing”.
Action 1: As you notice these energy boosts, take note of what you were doing immediately before and during that feeling.
Some activities will boost our energy and some will drain it. We want to know what specific activities are boosting our energy.
Action 2: When you get to the end of the week, review your energy boosting moments. These are the keys to harnessing your energy over the week that follows.
Action 3: Add in some of the energy boosting activities throughout the next week.
Action 4: Notice any positive differences to your energy, productivity and mood. This is the feedback that your energy boosting activities are creating a positive difference for you.
You see, the things that give us energy are often also connecting us to our values and what fulfills us. There is more chance that you will feel fulfilled or accomplished. The other benefit you may experience relates to accomplishing your outcomes. Maybe they come easier or you are able to do more.
This exercise to find your energy boosting activities is simply about creating awareness of what works and amplifying that. This is often what I do as a Coach for my clients. I help them see what is working and not working. That knowledge is powerful. It opens up more options.
