1. Make it a point to listen to your body. What is IT that makes you feel good or feel bad? It could be a certain act like helping people, writing an article or solving a problem.
When I was in the Corporate environment, I spent very little time to listen to my body and assess what makes me feel good. After I started my business, I made a commitment to increase my eustress and decrease my distress. One good resource that helped me increase my Eustress is Simpleology 103, which I highly recommend. Some of the activities that make me feel good and buzz with energy are-Doing Yoga, Planning my day on paper, working out in treadmill at least thrice a week.
2. Keep a daily log of recording the type of activity, food, event that makes you feel GREAT and ENERGETIC.
In Simpleology 103 you are required to do Energy Praxis that helps you identify your energy drainers and boosters. It is a simple 3 minutes exercise that serves as your DAILY log and helps you stop making unhealthy choices and start making healthy choices.
3. Remember that your THOUGHTS play an important role in making you feel good. Replace negative with positive thoughts.
This is easier said than done. One resource that I found very powerful and easy to implement is Emotional Freedom Technique. Gary Craig has done an excellent job of making it easy for anyone to learn his tapping techniques. You can get your manual at no cost at http://www.emofree.com
4. When you develop mental stress find ways to ALTER, AVOID, ACCEPT or ADAPT.
I learned this technique from Mark Joyner’s Simpleology-103. He provides a 30 day Habit builder exercise that helps you make conscious choices in coping with mental stress.
5. Research and read books on personal energy.
It is sad but true that we spend more time and energy learning and knowing about what is AROUND us than learning about OUR own body. With changes in lifestyle, our energy patterns also undergo a change. It is best in our OWN interest that we learn at least 6-7 ways to increase our personal energy, so that we can perform well in good and bad times.
