Share your mental energy with those who deserves it.
The year is new and with a new year often comes a new focus. Whether your focus this year is on achieving a work goal, or creating a family or earning more money, the common factor to focus on is supporting your mental energy. There is only so much mental energy available, so it is how you use your energy which can determine whether you survive the year or fall in a heap.
Over the past couple of years, I started have to take note of my mental energy and how healthy it was looking. I was the type of person who didn’t think it was important to fill up my cup, it was other people who needed me. So I constantly drained my cup until there was no more to give. By never replenishing my mental energy, it eventually drizzled to nothing and that was when I had a breakdown. How many times have you given more than you actually had and worked out too late that you were the only one who suffered?
I have learnt that mental energy can be filled quickly when you share it with the right people. Energy can start to be replenished within minutes if you are with someone who fills your soul and shares their positive energy with you. Only ten minutes with these people can fill your cup for days whereas ten minutes with someone who drains your mental energy, can have such a negative impact that may last for weeks.
Positive mental energy givers
So how do you know if you are surrounding yourself with the right people you can share your mental energy with? These people:
- Share your core values
- Listen to you without judgment or negativity
- Make you feel special and worthy
- Understand you can have a bad day but that doesn’t mean you have a bad life.
- Support decisions to let go of things but never allow you to quit.
- Energise you to believe in all possibilities
- Smile – love to smile.
- Believe yours fears but do not let you live through fear.
Positive mental energy takers
How to spot people who want to take your energy and replace it with their negative energy? These people:
- Don’t really listen beyond their own words.
- Make you feel your decisions are not the best decision for you.
- Expect things to go wrong all the time.
- Love to worry about everything.
- Do not like to believe in dreams as dreams never ever come true.
- Prefer to remain unchanged, fearing change.
You are in control of your energy and you determine who you share it with. Life will always have a mixture of positive energy givers and energy takers but you are the one in control on how you use your energy. Make this year be the year where your mental energy becomes a priority and needs to be constantly filled with positive thoughts and emotions. Choose people who fill you up not drain you.
It’s your mental energy…
Sadly this blog – Our Parallel Connection will be coming to end over the next few weeks as our focus has changed. I will be re-designing and changing focus to help my mental energy fly. I understand I will lose readers but I need to focus on what is good for me. My new focus will be on nurturing you – body mind and soul with a brand new product to be launched over the coming months. I hope you can stay and share my positive energy.
It’s my mental energy….
