Money is essential - bills have to be paid, but our primary wealth is our health.
When asked what surprised him about humanity the most, the Dalai Lama said
Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.
Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health."
Our energy reserves are ours to spend and just because the elixir of youth allows you to make massive energy withdrawals, it’s not a smart way to live. Being smart with your energy affords the delicious experience of feeling vitally alive.
Learning about your unique energy style is time and money well spent.
I invite you to explore ways to manage your health reserves, by discovering what boosts and what drains you. Your energy patterns are unique to you, and your self-care is best tailor-made to be effective.
With money so tight, businesses are focussed on staying afloat, with little room for tracking employee workloads. If one in a team goes sick, the others pick up the slack - assuming they’re not over-stretched already.
Employee or self-employed, your business will benefit if you make your health a priority. Going sick is costly for all involved. And worst case, being spat out by the business as it speeds along.
Apart from anything, work (and life) is much more enjoyable with energy!
