For the last couple of On-Track Tuesday blogs, we discussed energy drainers. Over the last several years, I started taking note of what (or who) drains my energy and what (or who) gives me energy. These are called Energy Drainers and Energy Boosters. If you missed the last couple of On-Track Tuesday emails, be sure to look back and use the worksheet to help you identify the things that leave you feeling drained and have you think of some strategies on helping you cope with such drainers. Do things (or people) really need to be part of your life? Or, if it is something tangible, can it be corrected (ie. Replacing dull instruments with new)?
This week, we will take a look at our Energy Boosters! What gives you energy?
These are things that give you a sense of accomplishment, boost your energy, and help you not only work towards your goals; but also, just help make your day feel fulfilled.
Some of the energy boosters could be:
~ working out and/or stretching in the morning
~ not looking at your phone (that would be an energy drainer that perhaps you have since turned into a positive habit and replaced with a good stretch session)
~ starting your day with a glass of water (before having that cup of coffee)
~ cleaning out a closet or drawer (keeping your house neat and organized)
~ using essential oils
~ watching a great movie that you love or listening to your favourite era of music
~ taking a hike with your family
~ implementing meditation
~ spending time with a mentor
~ developing a hobby (scrapbooking, playing the piano)
These are some examples of what could possibly work for you as energy boosters.
Often times, we know that these things will help us feel good about ourselves but are put on the back burner as we tend to be caring for others and live busy lives.
We need to live with intention and plan our days, otherwise, our days will be planned for us.
Create the list of the things using the worksheet below and think about ways that you can get more energy boosters in your life!
Thank you for your support and for reading!
Have a great week!
