This week’s challenge is all about noticing what drains or recharges your own internal battery, and being curious about what you can perhaps do differently.

Hi there and welcome to this week’s mini episode of The Curious Coach Podcast. This week’s episode is all about energy. So imagine that you have an internal battery. Certain things that you do during your day will deplete that battery of energy, it will drain it.
And then there’s other things that you do, that will give energy back or recharge the battery. And my challenge for you this week is to start to notice those things that drain it of energy and those things that recharge it. So, for example, it could be certain people, situations or tasks that either drain or recharge. \
For example, I always get recharged when I go for a run or if there is coaching type work that I’m doing or how I always get reinvigorated after a coaching session. There may be things like, emails and mundane tasks, that take my energy away.
So simply grab a piece paper and create two columns. On one column, write down stuff that you notice that takes energy away and on the other column write down all the stuff that gives you energy. Having created your list, maybe over the course of a few days or a week, start to be curious about whether those things on that list of energy drains, that you can just stop doing – that you can just cut out of your life altogether! What would that be like?
More than likely, there might be things that you can’t stop doing that the take energy away and that’s okay. Just be curious about whether you can organise those activities to happen at different times in the day when you might have more energy. Or can you interweave them with tasks that give you energy back? Some other things from the recharge column perhaps? Have a play around with it and see can you maintain your battery during your day at a higher level than you might be today and be curious about whether that makes any difference to how you’re feeling?
