The 21 Day Plan for More Energy
There is a commonly held belief that if you do something for 21 days it will be come a habit. Research from scientists supports this concept. Evidently, it takes time to build new brain cells, then they have to connect with other neurons, and then they only stabilize and become part of your memory after they have been used repeatedly for a while.
Of course, when you stop using those particular cells (that is, get out of the habit) these neurons wither up and you have to build them again. All this uses up more of your precious energy and conscious willpower.
If you want to become more fully engaged in your life and work, you need access to energy, drive and passion. Most of us don’t know how to manage our energy well. At the end of the day, it is hard to summon up the enthusiasm we need, especially for tasks we don’t find amusing. Energy is indeed our most precious resource, even more important than time.
There are secrets to having energy throughout the day. Some of these keys were discovered by observing professional athletes and corporate executives under stressful pressures of competition and long working hours.
One key to successfully managing your energy reserves is through recovery rituals. Every 90 to 120 minutes, your body and brain need to recover. A few minutes of regular recuperation several times a day can extend your energy capacities long into the day and evening.
Use your coach as a partner in exploring what’s really important to you, choosing your goals, making an action plan, and creating energy recovery rituals that connect with your higher purpose in life. Talking it over with a trusted partner helps reinforce your reasons for change and unleashes your energy and passion.
