Day 2: Energise
The theme for day 2 of the New Year Momentum Challenge is re-energising; optimising your energy levels for all the things you want to do. I’m not just talking about getting quality sleep, regular exercise and a nourishing diet. Those basics are of course vital not only for long term health but for optimising energy, mood and productivity in the short term and now is a great time to take stock of those areas. But I’m also talking about things that drain you emotionally and mentally. Excessive worry or anxiety is mentally draining not to mention time-consuming. Indecision and going back and forth about what to do for long periods of time is also a drain on your time, energy and productivity. Doing a task while feeling obligated and resentful is much more draining than doing the same task but feeling that you have a choice. And have you noticed that when you are hard at work at something you love you can work on it tirelessly for hours?
Journal your answers to the questions below help clarify the areas where your energy is being drained and what can be tweaked to optimise your energy:
If you completed all the questions, great work, I’m sure you will have some insights about what to work on to optimise your energy levels. Those insights in mind, what one small change can you commit to regularly, to start today? (tip: pick something that is easy to stick to to first create the habit eg. 5 minutes of exercise each morning if you never do any, 10 minutes to read for pleasure before bed etc).
See you for Day 3 tomorrow!
