Managing Your Energy
A prevalent thought in our culture tends to be a focus or even a hyper-focus on managing our time. Schedulers, phone applications, reminder notes, and countless courses are all dedicated to the art of being more productive in planning your day and managing your time. While having a schedule to ensure that the we stay on track is a good habit to have, we have missed out on a critical element which is that energy management, not time management should be our most important concept, since without energy, you could have the most efficient schedule ever made and it won’t matter.
I am sure you have had one of those days when you planned out the day the night before, woke up and went about following your plan only to run out of energy by mid-day, losing your ability to focus and feeling your levels of stress and anxiety rise as you realize that the plan is not going to be completed. Not implementing an energy strategy or having habits in place that renew your energy levels will often lead to such an outcome.
