Your personal currency is your energy. Spend your energy wisely.
What experiences do you “buy into”? What kind of people do you “invest in”? Are they experiences and people that have a positive return, that inspire you to be a better version of yourself, that allow you to be fully you?
No? Then stop spending your energy!
It’s very simple. This can be applied in yoga asana, relationships, workplace and family drama, your personal development, and your reactions to other people’s actions. Think about all the reactions and interactions you had in the last week: How many positive returns did you earn? How many people were enriched by your presence? How many times did you walk/drive/hang up from an experience with negative feelings?
Start writing down daily how you spend your energy. Remember to take into account how you spend your energy physically, mentally, emotionally/intuitively, and then write down what you use to fuel your own body (like food/drink, hobbies, books you read, music you listen to, e.g.). Make this a habit for thirty days.
Become more aware of your energy expenditure, and you may just find you improve it simply by using the journal to become more aware of yourself.
There’s only one way to find out – start tonight before you hit the sack 🙂
