Charge Up!?

We’ve all been in situations where our phones, tablets or laptops suffered from the dreaded “low battery.”  We’ve searched through our backpacks, purses, pockets, cars, homes, etcetera trying to find a charger. We’ve paid ridiculous amounts of money to purchase chargers while on vacations, or in other situations where we have to pay a premium price so that we can ”charge up!”

BUT…

What do we do when we need to be charged? Where do we go when we need a boost? What do we do when we feel depleted or drained? We certainly can’t stop by the neighborhood technology store or borrow a charge from a friend.

At times my energy is so low that all I can do is sleep. However, (for me) although sleep provides rest it doesn’t recharge my energy.   Resting and recharging are two different things.

Consider this…after you have a difficult, argumentative or adversarial conversation with someone, how do you recover, plugin, regroup or recharge? It takes a lot of energy to have these kinds of exchanges.   Think about it, our hearts race, our voices change, and afterward, we take deep breaths.  We might even cry or pour ourselves a glass of our favorite adult beverage.  Some people need to be around good friends or family to recharge, others choose to sit on a beach or in a hot tub, still, others need to make love, make music, paint, draw, meditate, just sit alone, or spend time with pets. Whatever you need to do to recharge, take the time to do it.

Low energy can lead to apathy, tiredness, lack of motivation, spikes of anger or sadness, frustration, and more… in fact, it can feel a lot like depression!

If you don’t know how to recharge try thinking about something you really enjoy, then plug into that joy by doing what you enjoy.  Seriously, it can really feel like plugging in!

I find that a good workout (among other things) recharges me.  Exercise has had significant value throughout my life.  It’s not the movement so much as the post-workout buzz and sense of accomplishment.   Both have helped me recharge and even manage stress.

Let’s all recharge so that we stay at our best.

Meditation, prayer, deep breathing, reading poetry, or your Spiritual book of choice, spending time outside, and more are like plugging into the socket of joy and charging up!

 

Love, Light, & Charged UP!
