3 tips on How to use Body Energy to Dynamise your Life
Read this quote by Tony Robbins again… it is so absolutely and undeniably true! I know I keep banging on about the importance of health and fitness as being fundamental to your success in your career (and life) but it is so obvious that those who have higher energy levels have more opportunities for progress, advancement, achievement and focus! It is the difference between being powered by rocket fuel compared to trying to light a fire by rubbing a piece of wood in your hands.
From Richard Branson to Gabi Zedlmeyer to Rhonda Halliday, what do they have in common? Success, fulfilment and ENERGY! Where does this energy come from? Positive mind and fitness, exercise, activity… You always see Richard Branson bouncing around kitesurfing, playing tennis, skiing, windsurfing, sailing as well as yoga and tai chi, Gabi is an avid runner and Rhonda a passionate and unstoppable (also very good) dancer!
Tim Ferriss reminds us of Richard Branson’s answer to the question ‘How do you become more productive?’ Sir Richard’s response ‘Work Out!” saying that doing this gave him four extra hours of productive time every day. For a super successful entrepreneur like Richard Branson to actively promote and endorse energy levels and fitness as being a key to productivity, maybe you now agree that I am right to keep reminding you of the great benefits!
Not only do you stay slimmer, improve your health, improve your mood, reduce stress, sleep better but you also become more productive, increase your energy and stamina, have better focus, are more positive, boost your creativity, and have heightened clarity and drive to achieve your goals.
Gabi agrees: “I get up before 5am and run for 90 minutes every day. It clears my head, keeps me fit and puts me in a great mood…”
Rhonda isn’t into traditional ‘workouts’ but is definitely buys into fitness: “To keep my energy levels up so I can consistently perform at my best while also relaxing from everyday pressures and stresses – not being a gym enthusiast – I dance! The dance studio allows the freedom to just be! It is a great environment to relax in whilst learning new fun dance routines and exercise at the same time. I usually prefer a tango to a waltz…but on some days it might be that I just want to glide around the floor. If that’s the mood I am in, then that’s what we will do. That’s the beauty of dance…you can’t get that on the cross trainer!”
So what should you do?
- Find one, or several, things you really enjoy doing – Richard Branson has a whole range of sports he loves, Gabi is a runner, Rhonda a dancer – and schedule a minimum of 3 or 4 times per week, aim for more!
- Between your activities also up your natural exercising, walking instead of taking the lifet, standing up for every phone call rather than always sitting down at your desk – the little things make a difference too…
- Mentally in your own mind, vision, feeling, belief and attitude give it the same value as you would an important project, a key client meeting, a major unmissable event. Schedule it in your diary if it helps! Really focus on the activity while you do it, enjoy it, feel the pleasure of doing it, gain the maximum benefit for you both physically and mentally. Feel that energy!
Afterwards channel this wonderful energy and productivity into using your talents fully to produce outstanding results!
