Energy In vs Out
Say hello to February!
Did it take anyone else the first 6 days of the month to actually admit that it is, in fact, here?
Or, was that just me?
Oh February, you cute little month, you!
You are short and sweet and almost always centered around love.
Now, I love "love" just as much as the next person, but that warm-and-fuzzy February feeling isn't quite how I'd describe what's lingering after our first thirty-something days of the year.
Well, January was meaty!
And, I'm not talking ground-turkey-meaty which is easily be broken up & stirred.
I'm talking T-bone-meaty... thick and marbled and tough in parts, a few tender bites here and there... and mostly leaving us feeling the way you do after eating an actual T-bone steak ... fatigued, heavy, and in need of a nap.
Yeah... that kind of meaty.
And while we can also say that January was full and productive and a necessary transition after the holidays, the general consensus from most people I talk to is about the same:
It is time to REIGNITE our ENERGY!
"The energy of the mind,
is the essence of life."
I love talking all-things energy and am so intrigued by the concept of boosting it and reducing what drains it, that I am devoting this whole, cute month to it!
And, I will be sharing it all with you each week so we can take command of our energy and power forward into 2018!
We begin with Energy In vs Energy Out.
What is energy?
Google it and you'll get a cool 1,610,000,000 results.
Depending on the source, you can go deep into the rabbit hole of power plants, the department of energy, chakras, kinetic energy, the energy crisis...you get the idea.
While I could easily begin digging my own energy rabbit hole, for our purposes here, we will use this definition:
"the strength and vitality required for sustained physical and mental activity."
Let's do a quick inventory:
On a scale of 1-10, how would you rate your energy today?
What radiates energy in your life?
What drains energy out?
What could you do today to FLIP closer to where you want to be?
Need some ideas?

I eat this stuff up so please share your energy inventory with me!
Next week, we are diving into how to INCREASE energy, so stay tuned!
Believing in YOU,
