Busy people of the digital world: this one goes out to you! Being busy but also knowing that finding more self-care and energy management time is a #1 concern that people have. With children, businesses, school, sports, and all the great things we do, it can be tough to fit a little ‘me’ time in. (It can sometimes seem unnecessary when we are living our dreams.)
Right off the bat, I am going to tell you one piece of advice you are not going to hear. That is, “Take a day off.” You already know that. A day off is a luxury that not all of us have. However, we can usually find five minutes here or there, or approach something a little differently if we are aware of the energetic dynamics of it.
As many busy people can tell you, there comes a time in many of our lives when being ‘booked up’ leads us to a point where we feel bogged down. We start getting lethargic. This leads to burnout, falling out of love with our lives, and eventually, turning to podcasts like this to help ourselves figure out how to fix it. (In my own case, I wound up experiencing migraines and extreme IBS.) This rock bottom is totally avoidable. If you have not reached one yet: good job! Taking steps to manage your energy will keep you from having that experience. If you are there or have been there, you know exactly what I mean.
This is something that is very common. Even people who are living their dream can get energetically exhausted. In fact, people in this space often are the ones to become exhausted because they love what they do and put their most into it. If this is you, do not feel ashamed of yourself. You are not alone. You can heal. Energy management helps you take into account what your body, soul, and emotional fields require AND experience. A small amount of learning about how you tick helps you figure out how to tweak your schedule or more effectively use the time you do have. Once you take into the factors that I talk about in this podcast like what we carry with us from one meeting to the next, or when we get back home, it becomes rather easy to handle. You get it.
In this podcast, I share some of my best energy management strategies for ‘busy people’. I promise, you will not hear me tell you to take a day off. Rather, in this installment, I talk about the importance of finding ways to work within what you do have. Deliberately staying away from advice you probably heard before, I work to share unique tools and tips that will help you enrich and enjoy your life!
1) Identifying the basis of your grounding (What makes you feel nurtured, nourished, and loved and why that is important.)
2) Working with bookends. (Identifying how to keep energy where it belongs to stay fresh ‘task’ to ‘task’.)
3) Creating an oasis of peace (and using it). (Somewhere just for you, even for a few moments.)
and *4* which is throughout) Finding high impact tools that cover multiple layers at once where you are able to layer the things that work for you.
As I share throughout, one of the key concepts for energy management, in particular for energy sensitive ‘busy’ people, is to find things that work with your schedule and responsibilities. Keeping an ongoing flow or regular self-connection and alignment moments for self-healing is something that helps us stay our best. So too is working with tools that impact multiple layers of our physical, emotional, and energy bodies at once helps us get the most of our self-care moments. In each of the segments, I suggest how to do that.
