I’ve recently learned to view my energy as a rechargeable battery. Some things drain my battery, and other things recharge it.
Getting enough sleep recharges my energy battery. Reading and writing recharge. Going to large gatherings where I don’t know very many people drains it. (Can you tell that I’m a bit of an introvert?)
Once my battery is empty, I’m running on fumes and am no longer very productive.
Before I commit to a task, I try to picture my energy battery in my mind and estimate how much that task will drain or recharge my battery. I want to encourage you to do the same.
It’s important to have positive attitudes while we work and take care of necessary items, but we also need to make sure that we’re regularly finding time to do some things that recharge and refresh us.
“And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men” Colossians 3:23
Question: What recharges you?
