Skills for Leading Yourself - Energy

We’ve come to number 3 of most important skills of leading yourself: ENERGY

Energy is what I’m lacking today, because of a serious cold.

What depletes your energy level? 

For me it would bad thoughts, negative emotions, transgressing on my limits,  to take on the burdens of others, trying to influence someone rigid, worries, conflicts, brain dead entertainment

Enough about that!

What are some good energy boosters?

For me again that would be nature, daylight, sitting outside our cabin in the mountains listening to silence, visiting a book store, having good conversations about meaningful topics, but also being silent together, kayaking, doing a round of qigong which is very much a dynamic meditation practice, listening to music ...

and on days like these – plenty of rest and sleep.

What gives you more energy?    

Enjoy your weekend and make sure to fill your batteries with good energy!
