Most people have a lot going on. By the end of the day, I’m pretty tired and all I can manage is a work-out and quiet evening at home.
What if your energy is low but you really need to get something done?
You can cultivate some energy in just a few minutes. Here’s how.
First of all, you have to want to do what you need to do. This probably won’t work with dusting. Ask yourself, “why do I want to do this?” If nothing comes to mind, try “why might I want to do this?” Look for the motivating “why” behind the “what.”
Like a batter taking a stance at the plate, you don’t just run out there swinging. You wait for the right pitch and then go for it. Give yourself pitches until you find one that makes you want to swing.
When you have your “why,” take a few minutes to sit quietly and really explore it. Let the “why” be the fuel for your doing. Let it build your energy. Picture your “why” and picture yourself doing the “what.” If you aren’t feeling energized, look for a different “why.”
When you have the right “why,” doing gets easier and energy comes out of nowhere.
