Addicted to External Energy?

I want to share with you one of my super-secrets: a simple practice that allows me to stay naturally energized, performing more effectively with less stress and greater long-term sustainability.

Less stress held in my body and brain means greater wellness, less sick-days, less reactivity and the messes that reactivity causes...

More effective performance means a greater sense of inner purpose and accomplishment, more satisfied bosses, colleagues and clients, and ultimately more financial prosperity.


So what's so awesome and different about this practice?

1. It takes 5 minutes or less.

2. It can be done pretty much anywhere. I've done this on the sidewalk, in a stairwell, in a bathroom, up on the roof, in my office, on a small patch of grass...

3. It doesn't require great flexibility or strength, or even that you are currently fit, yet it builds your fitness naturally over time.

4. It creates an immediate surge of energy, stress release and focus.

5. Combined with *Complete Breathing* and fresh air and sunlight, your results will be even strong and more long lasting.

6. It begins to train the body to produce its own energy, instead of becoming more and more dependent on outside sources for the pick-me-up (coffee, energy drinks, pills, relying on others, etc.).


Of course, you have to take an unflinching look at your own levels of stress and low energy over time, *and* the impact they are having in your life- and that kind of honest reflection can be uncomfortable and difficult (yet soooo worth it).

But here are a few questions to consider:

-Are you sitting and typing a lot (computer posture)?
-Are you having to hold one posture or repetitive motion for long periods?
-Are you experiencing tight hips and lower back, tension in shoulders and neck, pain/carpal-tunnel of the wrists?
-Do you receive direct reports, manage executive levels, or have big projects riding on your shoulders?
-Do you exist in a high stress environment?
-Do you regularly experience heavy or difficult emotions at work (yours or others)?
-Do you often feel disconnected from your body and stuck in your head?


Making it a practice

I recommend doing this practice:

-first thing in the morning
-before you eat lunch (5 minutes and you will enjoy your food more, get more energy out of it, and feel less heavy afterward)
-around the 2 or 3pm hour if possible (often there is a dip in energy here)
-as needed throughout the day, when you feel a dip in energy or an increase in stress (the Breathing App can be used in the same way)


Remember that even the best practices will have no effect if you don't do them. You must believe that something better is possible, and that you are worth this 'something better'. You must realize that taking 5 minutes is worth it in the larger context of your work and life.

These simple practices and the fresh energy they provide will become the basis for a real and profound transformation in your life- an awakening of your inwardly fulfilled, outwardly prosperous Heroic Self in all areas of your life.

My life is dedicated to you discovering and claiming that Heroic Self, and I am so excited for your continuing adventure.

In abundant energy,
Eka, aka SuperSpark
