“Used to be, I’d get home from work and spend the evening working on my own business. But these days I just don’t have it in me”.
But is it about finding the energy?
Or is it about eliminating that what takes the energy we used to have, and are meant to have?
Whatever it is that you put your time or attention into costs energy.
If you don’t have enough of it, ask yourself: are you being drained without you knowing it?
It’s more likely than you think, especially when you consider that whatever you put in your mind stays there and rambles on, costing you much mental energy.
And the worst kind of energy drain? Conversations in your head, that you shouldn’t be having in the first place.
The kinds of conversations that go on because of all the opinions and statements and points being made on social media.
You might think that social media help you stay up to date on what’s going on in the world, but it’s good to curate what you actually see there.
Otherwise, you allow the internet at large to put stories, concepts and conversations into your head – tenants, and they’re not even paying rent. But they do use up your energy
Want to have more energy?
Then consume art instead of social media. Books, music, films, poetry… Elevate yourself, learn something, grow.
Or, have actual, real, quality conversations with people you care about.
Those are the kinds of conversations that fill the well, that stay with you because they matter. That kind of conversation gives you energy, instead of taking it from you.
I’m not against social media, but it’s good to know that social media are deliberately designed to hook us on having more and more mental conversations.
Do you really want to pay that cost, just so you can ‘stay informed’…?
