Do you take enough time to reset, recharge and reenergize?
I’m forever having conversations with clients, who are stressed, overwhelmed, or suffering with some level of anxiety. One thing we often look it is, how best we can incorporate lifestyle strategies that help us to reset and recharge.
Think about your mindset, your energy, your perspective, like that of the charge on your phone, or some other device.
Unless you consistently and frequently keep it charged and topped up, then inevitably it will run flat and on empty.
The busy-ness, the demands, the activities of day-to-day life is using up our energy, so it's important that we take sufficient time to recharge, to reset and to reenergize.
So, have a check in with yourself today and look at your life and ask yourself, are you taking enough time for yourself and to recharge.
Let's be honest, most of us don't take enough time to re-charge and it's a conversation I have with clients all the time.
Sometimes there's also an element of confusion, between taking time purposefully within intent to take time-out, versus escapism.
Often people look for activities to help them escape from the stress and demands of life, and they don't feel fully replenished, or they don't get the full benefit from it, because they've running away from something.
Instead, what I'm talking about is making sure you weave into your day-to-day life, your week to week, your month to month, things that you enjoy, things that inspire you, things that encourage you, things that help to keep you topped up, charged from the inside out.
This could be anything, we're all different, we all like different things. Physical activity can be an important component of that, but that could look like many different things, for many different people, reading, listening to music, getting outside in nature, going for walks.
Whatever way works for you, be honest and ask yourself, do you do it often enough.
Look at how much variety you can come up with, for doing different things that will help keep you, you rested, recharged, and reenergized.
Don't fall into the trap of waiting until you need it, do it consistently, so you help prevent yourself from getting to the point when you need to reboot and re-charge. Be more productive, purposeful proactive and do the small things as often as you can, that help keep your charge as consistently high as you possibly can.
That way, it's going to take a lot more for you to run on empty, but also, you then have things in place, that even if you get distracted by life, you have habits and routine that naturally help you reset, refocus and get yourself back on track if needed.
Your action for today, is to have a look at your life, have a look at your day, your week, your month, your time and ask yourself, what can you do to help keep yourself charged up and, and let me know in the comments, or get in touch and let me know what's your favourite way, or ways to keep yourself rested recharged and re-energized.
I look forward to hearing all the different things that you enjoy.
Remember what your mind believes you will achieve.
So, allow yourself to think differently, to believe yourself, to take the right kind of action, so that you can achieve the life and the goals that you want.
