How I Stay Energised

May 4, 2017

 

People ask me all the time:  "How do you stay so energised when you fly around every week, teach everyday for weeks on end and party?"  It's true, I'm always in the fun zone.   I never get sick I show up for my social obligations and I'm always there for my students.
Answer: a lot of planning, a simple mind and unwavering faith.  I always know everything is coming together perfectly.  I hold the belief that every hiccup, large or small, is working in my favor so I don't waist energy getting frazzled.  (Being happily married and not having kids helps too)  I just take things one at a time.  I meditated 10-20 min daily.  I journal.  If I do find my mind obsessing over something,  I just take note of it without reacting. I decide to wait and see.  I also vent with smart friends.  A few weeks ago I was really pissed about something and I told one of my friends:  "----- is making me so angry!  Help me not feel this way."  He did.  I didn't look for justification for my anger,  I wanted to move beyond it. He helped me gain the perspective I couldn't find on my own.  Resentful feelings still popped up on the subject in little spirits for a couple days after but eventually those feelings faded and I never had to have an unpleasant interaction. I figured out how to set better boundaries moving forward without blaming another. Decisions like that give me a lot of self respect and a lot of energy.  I'm not always entirely proud of my actions but I am of my intensions.  When I mess up, when I experience disharmony, I just consider it part of the process.  I'm not hard on myself but I hold myself to a high standard.  I compassionately reflect and make note of how I can do better in the future.  Then I keep on rockin' in the free world!  And if you are reading this thinking:  But it's not always that simple.  Agreed.  But what if it could be?
