5 Proven Things To Be More Energised

 

 

Love, energy, confidence, self worth self esteem

 

Some days I wake up simply wanting more energy and wonder where mine had gone. They are usually the days I have not followed my own advice.

Has that happened to you? Are you cringing and thinking ‘Yep, she is speaking to me’.

And…did you know that there are energy stealers out there? Sometimes we even steal own energy by dragging past stuff with us. Would it be a relief to put it down? I found when I did I felt lighter, had more energy and I got more done.

This is not about burying your head in the sand and pretending all is well.

What I am suggesting is that it is within your control to change what is no longer serving you.

‘You will have more energy when you am not dragging the past with you into every thought and situation’, says Joe Dispenza, author of ‘Breaking The Habit of Being Yourself’.

As an energy boost and self- starter I invite you to try 5 tips.

 

 DI’S TIPS TO HAVE MORE ENERGY

 

No 1 DAILY RITUALS AND JOURNALING

 

writing, journaling gratitude confidence self belief


Daily rituals that work for me include:
1. A 5min Confidence Boost Exercise
2. EFT (tapping)
3.Visualisations (it is a plus when you record them in your own voice)

4. Writing a Divine Letter ( a very effective tool that a friend of mine uses).
5. When you have your physical shower take a mental shower also and wash away those thoughts that no longer serve you.

Journaling is a wide subject and I use different ways at different times, my favourites include:

1. Brain dump, this exercise I started using after reading ‘The Artist’s Way’. When you wake sit up and write whatever is in your mind. That gets rid of the stuff, I find it releases negative energy as the words pour out onto the paper leaving me feeling lighter and brighter.

2, Visual journal, it can be a vision board, or what I call my ‘Success Folder’. Take time each day to spend a few minutes absorbing and integrating the images, words, colours and the energy.

3. Gratitude journal - This was a huge help when I was in a dark place. Before you go to bed each night write 3-5 things that you are grateful about. That was a challenge at first, I would grumpily mutter to myself ‘what have i got to be grateful about’. I persevered, some nights it was simply that I had a warm bed and a roof over my head. Then I found myself getting excited about what I might write that night.

4.Forward journaling, writing ‘as if’ was already in my life. When I write in this way I find it re-programs my mind for what I want to attract into my life and magic happens.

 

No 2 BEING MINDFUL OF NEGATIVE SELF-TALK

 

heartfelt, confidence, self esteem self belief

 

You know that monkey chatter that tells you all the things you can’t do or didn’t do or quit half way that whispers or shouts in your ear. These are your stories, stories probably formed years ago. Old stories keep you stuck, they may be from family, friends or workmates, that zaps your energy. It feels like they are sucking the life right out of you.

Worrying is a biggie, it just gives you deep lines, serves no purpose and attracts more of the ‘don’t wants’ into your life. Most of the things we worry about never happen. Some worry when there is nothing to worry about, my Mum bless her was a master at it.

 

No 3 DE-CLUTTERING YOUR MIND AND HOME

 

clearing, clearing with confidence, help to declutter, lighter after declutter

 

Now I am a Cancerian, I keep things ‘just in case’. So just the idea sent shivers down my spine at first. In fact, I had a friend come over to help me when I did my first major de-clutter. We had 4 piles, one to keep, one to the bin, one to the op shop and one for the garage sale. We went through every item and I made a decision, no ‘let me think about it’s’ were allowed. I felt so free and light after it was done.

Decluttering your mind came later and it is covered above in negative self-talk. It was something I had simply not considered that dragging the past with you constantly is a huge energy drain.

 

NO 4 DO THINGS THAT MAKE YOUR HEART SING

 

joy, happiness, self care, happiness, confidence

 

That phrase has a lightness and brightness even before we start, they are happy words. When you do what you love, it energises you, it puts a smile on your face and a spring in your step.

What is that makes your heart sing? It may be singing, music, creating, writing, painting, blogging, dancing, sport or something else. When you find it, nurture it and include some ‘happy heart’ activity in your life every day.

 

No 5 RADICAL SELF- CARE

 

self love, support, love, confidence,

 

I say radical because for many women deny themselves self-care, always putting the needs and wishes of others before themselves. If you are not in top form with your cup of live and love overflowing how can you help, support and love others? If you keep taking from the cup one day it will come up empty.

My first step into radical was forgiveness, not only to those who had harmed me, but forgiveness to myself. That opened my door to self-love and self-care.

Self- care to you may include spending time in nature, meditating, exercising. It may be reading, have a massage or a bubble bath or taking a nap. Women who do too much are often sleep deprived, don’t drink enough water, skip meals or eat on the run and push themselves to the limit. They feel guilty, undeserving or unworthy. Love yourself enough to take care of you

What do you do to energise yourself? I would love you to share with love and openness.
