Identify and Eliminate Your Energy Drains

Monday, June 01, 2009

From Oprah.com we have this wonderfully detailed article about how to identify and eliminate your energy drains. It's quite long, so I'm going to divide it up into sections and post each section separately. Here's the first one:

Life coach Cheryl Richardson says that creating your best life has more to do with what you remove from it than what you add to it.

Everything undone, incomplete or unresolved drains your energy. Not being honest with yourself and avoiding conflict drains your energy. Every action you take uses energy, and every action you don't take uses energy.

Identify and Eliminate Your Energy Drains.
If you are feeling overwhelmed and drained, you might have difficulty knowing what areas of your life to work on changing. Most of us are unconscious about how our mental energy is used throughout our daily lives. Becoming conscious of where your energy flows can be very revealing.

Core Questions: Learn what are you avoiding.
Lifestyle expert Cheryl Richardson says there are potentially three big energy drains in your life:

  1. Not believing you have a choice
  2. Not being able to say "no"
  3. Not finding support

Answer the following questions: Are you avoiding or neglecting an area of your life? Why?For example: Cleaning out the basement? Going through your wardrobe? Writing a family member? Look at what you're avoiding in your life and ask yourself why.

Cheryl says there are "cords of energy" connecting you to past, present and future—everything undone or incomplete in your life drains you. What are you worrying about? Trying not to think about? From what areas of your life are the cords pulling? Write these down explore the reasons why.

Identify what areas the cords flow easily to. Which areas of your life please you? Write these down. Finally, ask yourself, "If I eliminated these drains, how would my life change?" Now review your answers. You've taken the first step to recognizing what is draining you in your life.
