Energy to do it all

All this energy we are spending is like going to the ATM every hour and withdrawing from our savings accounts.

Many of us today feel pressed to “do it all.” With this comes the pressure of constantly focusing on what is next — the next appointment, the next activity, the next client, etc.

With all that energy and effort placed on the next task, little time is left for the present. It is nearly impossible to be present when we have to be at the office for an early meeting and yet also have to drop the kids off at school by 8 a.m. and then pick them up at 3 p.m. Our meeting suffers, our driving suffers, our emotions suffer and our kids suffer — all because we are focused on doing the next thing.

When we are not present in the moment, we are more prone to anger, accidents, illness, mistakes and relationship challenges. Because we are focusing on what comes next, the children’s bedtime stories are rushed or nonexistent because homework has to be finished and they need to get enough sleep for school.

All this energy we are spending is like going to the ATM every hour and withdrawing from our savings accounts. Our energy account is so overdrawn from constantly focusing on what is next that even a vacation will not refill it. It may help to balance the account for a few weeks, but then we are back into the red and savings dwindle further.

The good news is that we can get our energy back and have even more than we had before. It is possible to be calm, cool and collected while doing “it all.” Finding the energy to do it is the trick. The following grounding exercise will help you regain your energy and the connection to your inner self.

Rooting and grounding your energy into the earth is a great start. You can do this by visualizing golden cords, like the roots of a tree, going from your feet down into the earth — 10 feet deep and 10 feet wide. Breathe deeply and feel the connection to the earth’s core energy.

This simple technique can be done anywhere, anytime. It is a necessary and first step to being in the here and now. The more you ground yourself, the more your energy will increase, making you feel calmer, your emotions more even, your decisions clearer, and interactions with your family and co-workers more balanced.
