Where will you spend your energy today? Will you spend it on things that really matter to you or will you give it away to every request and distraction that comes your way?

The majority of people remain in a reactive state just waiting for the next demand on their energy until their too tired to do anything else and they’re off to sleep. If at the end of the day you took a few minutes just to evaluate how you spent your energy you’d probably see that very little of it was actually spent on you.

Taking just a little time out throughout the day to focus your energy on yourself will give you sense of control over your own life, and can also prevent you from feeling like a victim of circumstance. Make it a daily practice to carve out a few minutes during the day to focus your energy on what you’re doing and how you’re feeling.  After all, it is your energy so shouldn’t you spend some of it on you?

“The energy of the mind is the essence of life.” Aristotle
