Recharge Your Energy
Personal development is a life-long endeavor, one that takes a conscious decision, courage, determination, dedication, effort, patience, and study time, among other things. Besides working on your mindset and your attitude, you must also have an inquisitive and open mind not only to research and learn what excites you, but to be able to recognize the subtle variations in the vibrations within you and around you; so when you need a boost, you can recharge your energy and remain positive overall.
However, despite your determination and apart from recognizing your countless blessings and the many things you have to be grateful for, there are days in which stress may get the best out of you and leave you with a feeling of doom and gloom… Does it sound familiar? Yes, we’ve all “been there”… at one point or another we all have felt drained as we absorb other people’s emotional states and negative vibes from the environment and from what happens around us.
This comes about as a result of pressures at work, when you get sick, feel tired or have not slept well, when you have a misunderstanding with a loved one and get hurt, when a communication barrier arises, and even when we watch the news. As a result, you end up feeling worn out. It can be tough to regain your strength and feel positive again. This is when you need to take some time for yourself to recharge your energy and renew your spirits.
Here are a handful of ideas to help you recharge your energy and recover from less than perfect situations in life.
- Take a Break from It “All” in a Snap!
Leave the cause of your stress for a few minutes, both physically and mentally. This tip is applicable particularly when you are feeling overwhelmed because of many things going on around you at the same time.
Find a place to sit quietly by yourself and close your eyes for a few moments. Take a few deep breaths and relax. In your mind, recite your favorite affirmation a few times to yourself, slowly. After a few minutes, take a deep breath again and gently open your eyes. This short break can give you a new perspective on the issue – or issues – at hand.
This is similar to the previous one but a bit more formal, so to say. Take 20 to 30 minutes to just “be” with yourself. Close your eyes and breathe deeply and slowly a few times until you feel peace inside by disconnecting your mind from the outside world. Focus on the air going in and out of your longs. This feeling will initiate a meditative state.
Try not to think of anything if at all possible. If that is difficult, focus your mind on an imaginary object or a vision that can relax you. Here are a few ideas. You can make variations as you see fit:
- You are a feather floating in the air. You become lighter and lighter as you glide downward. You finally touch the ground, softly and gently. You landed on a beautiful prairie. As you lie there, you realize all negative feelings and heaviness have left your body. You are basically weightless.
- As you breathe in, you inhale peace, as you breathe out you release all ill feelings and stress. As you breathe slowly and deeply, imagine all the negative thoughts and feelings you are releasing. You may want to add color to your visualization; i.e. breathing in reflects peace, the air going in is light blue; breathing out reflects stress, the air is bright red or dark.
A relaxing piece of music can help in your meditation. Also, listening to the music alone and letting it wash away your worries and concerns can also work, even without using your imagination. Music is known as a way to recharge your energy because of its inherent vibrations (more on this in a minute)… Try several variations and see what works best for you.
- Replenish Your Energy from Mother Nature
You don’t need to go too far to do this. If you don’t live by the ocean or the mountains, you can draw energy from focusing on the beauty of a simple flower, a bird, or a tree. Take note of the object’s every detail. What color is it? Shape? How does it move with the wind? What is the texture? Is it smooth? Drink or absorb its essence and imagine this essence filling you with positive renewed energy.
- Ask for Energy
Their help can be especially valuable to recharge your energy when you are having a hard time replenishing it on your own, and especially if they are positive by nature.
When you are feeling tired, overwhelmed or depressed, you can ask people close to you to send you energy. You can make your request by letting them know how you are feeling and that you need positive energy.
They can share theirs with a fuzzy hug, a warm smile, a pat on the back, making you laugh, or simply by keeping you company, all of which are empathetic actions.
- Give Your Energy to Others
You may think that when you are down, sad or stressed, you are depleted of all of your energy and that you no longer have any to spare; much less to give away.
However, sometimes the act of giving that little energy you have will initiate the giving and receiving cycle and you will very likely end up receiving more. For example, if a friend has a problem and asks for your opinion and support, you could end up forgetting about your own worries for a moment and focus your attention on him/her. When you do this, there is an exchange of energy where you offer support. The mere act of giving energy in this manner will actually help you recharge your energy by drawing it back to you.
