Each day, I have all the vitality I need to accomplish the tasks before me. My energy stays strong because I do what I need to do to keep it high.
One thing I do to keep myself feeling vigorous is to get plenty of physical activity. I park a long way from where I am going and walk in. If the store is close, I may even walk there for a mid-week grocery run. I try to engage in some activity every single day.
Also, I am sure to eat regular, healthy meals. I get plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, and round out my diet with lean protein and complex carbohydrates such as whole grains. When I eat like this, my energy level stays stable instead of rising and falling rapidly like it does if I eat too much sugar.
In addition to taking care of my physical self, I keep my mind sharp too. Part of this is my regular gratitude practice.
When I feel good about my life, I naturally have more passion for it. One way I consistently feel happy about my circumstances is to focus on the many wonderful things that come my way.
Today, I am thankful for all of the magnificent things in my life. I feel energetic because I am excited about my possibilities. And I recommit daily to my self-care practices.
1. What is one small thing I can do today to increase my energy?
2. What are my regular self-care practices? Is there anything I would like to add to them this week?
3. When does my energy get low? What do I need at these times to bring my energy back up?
