Energy Vampires – don’t let them get you down…..

Are you EXHAUSTED?  If you spend your life so tired that it’s stopping you from doing things….. this one’s for you! 

Do you work in a job that drains you, or are you surrounded by children at home and as much as you love them, they drain you…?  Do you notice that when you’re around certain people, they are like vampires and STEAL your energy?
I remember when I worked in the corporate world, which did up until 6 years ago. Back then I didn’t know I was a highly sensitive person, and so I thought that there was something physically wrong with me because I was SOOO exhausted after every work day.  On the weekends I would struggle to do much because I just wanted to lay on the couch to recover….. it wasn’t fun!

Energy Drains

What I learnt the hard way, was that trying to ignore our need for rest DOES NOT WORK.

Let’s talk worst case scenario….. you will get sick.  That’s what happened to me.  I continued to push & push & push and eventually my adrenals crashed and it started a 3 year battle to get well again.

So I cannot stress enough how IMPORTANT it is to manage your energy levels on a daily or weekly basis!

In today’s video I talk about:
– the serious consequences of NOT managing our energy well
– ignoring the signs does NOT work
– need to raise awareness of our own energy needs & take time out
– staying away from energy vampires
– what can you do ‘in the moment’ to recharge
– saying no
