Key Ideas

Good energy

Good energy is having the right energy—physically and mentally—to fuel your actions throughout the day. 

A hallmark of body-energy management is that you happily flow from one activity to the next. When these elements are in sync, each action, each day fuels the next.

Getting started

Make a simple chart to help you see what kind of energy you operate on at various daily checkpoints and consider what affect this pattern has on you.

Discover how to better match your own energy with your daily goals.

Eliminate burnout

Switch activities to something more rewarding and pile it on, pushing the pedal to the metal until you recharge. 

You’ll reset the electrical activity in your mind and body and enjoy a cascade of self-produced anti-stress and happy hormones. 

Massage this acupoint to bust stress

In a seated position and well postured, as if there is a string atop your head pulling upward, use your thumb to gently rub the bottom (center) of each foot. Works fast.

Eliminate bad moods

Put a photo of a loved one, friend or pet doing something positive and silly—the sillier the better—on your phone.

Making those childish funny faces or facial expressions works great. Use as needed.

Plan a recharging activity

Think over tomorrow’s agenda. Identify a predictable situation when you’ll drain a lot of energy. Plan a restorative activity before or after

Get to a different environment and do something creative: Listen to an audiobook, sketch a natural scene, try some creative writing.

Heighten your energy

  • Find an environmental photo that has a relaxing effect on you
  • Find a piece of fast-paced music that makes your energy soar.
  • Place these on your cellphone.
  • Relax and deepen your breathing, empty your mind of thoughts and mindfully observe the photo for five to seven minutes.
  • Afterward, play your fast tune.
