Applying energy directly to producing desired results is what creates what we call power. Power is effectively applying our energy. "Being effective" is producing the effects (results) we want.
Increasing the amount of energy to apply will obviously increase our total potential power, to get results. The results we want comes from what produces in the long term the most overall happiness in our lifetimes.
There are (mostly) two types of energy as a power source:
1. Physical energy
When either of these are low, we don't feel much like doing what is most life beneficial, plus we tend to make poor decisions that result in that which is not good for ourselves.
So, the question is: what shall I do to get the most net energy out of my day so that I can live my best life and feel great while doing it?
This piece is directed at answering that question.
LIFE IS TOO PRECIOUS!
DISCUSSION OF KEY POINTS
We have virtually unlimited energy capability, but tapping into that is the "art of the deal".
We blow it through:
2. Not managing our body
a. Staying tense, being unrested, dehydrating, not taking breaks, etc.
3. Using inappropriate short term "fixes" (often including addictions, whether to coffee, sugar, or anything that is "needed" that is inappropriate for health and which lowers long term energy productivity capacity).
The point of life is to enjoy it and feel good, in a deeper and longer sense called enduring unconditional happiness. But if we are in a low state of resourcefulness from anything, including the mental/emotional, we do not feel as good as we could and we do not operate as well as we could - there is no point in staying in that condition for very long.
So, definitely read and practice the simple ways of increasing your energy right away (without the nasty aftereffects of many "solutions"). You'll love the results and how you feel! (I love the one that supercharges me so quickly, especially after never finding one that worked.)
And, of course, increasing your long term energy capabilities is tremendously important. Those are all listed in the article under the Energy For The Long Term section, below.
Following this will, I promise, make a huge, huge difference in your life!
ENERGY IN THE MOMENT:
Quickest And Simplest: Drink a whole bunch of water, fast breathing, a whole wheat banana sandwich,
Clif bars, jumping up and down.
The Key Ones
Use this checklist and adopt these practices:
Instant Energy, From Something Good! - Don't reach for the sugar or other artificial stimulants or, alternatively, shut down - do this instead - it will change your life significantly. One of these was an incredible energizer for me, taking me from really tired to great energy and feellng really good.
ENERGY FOR THE LONG TERM - For everyone!
regulatory function, such as blood sugar, are devastating physically and psychologically.
Rejuvenation - Add this practice to your life to experience much more peace, creativity,
satisfaction, and balance to your life. Ironically, in a sense, this is under the psychology
section, but physical health and psychology are directly connected so that makes sense.
