Two-plus months into quarantine, the need for self-care is more important than ever. ASEA Presidential Triple Diamond Trish Schwenkler is no exception, and in this blog post she gets down to the nitty gritty on how to keep your energy high (or get it back) when you feel like you’re at a low point. 

Does this raise my energy?

While it’s important to be in the know, it’s also easy to take in too many news stories. So, much like my fellow associate Alan Noble, here’s the question I ask myself every time I go to do an activity: Does this raise my energy? And TV really doesn’t. Those things take my energy down! 

Defy gravity.  

Gravity is a physical force. It’s also a mental force! It’s always pulling us down, and our job is to defy that. We can’t physically defy gravity, but mentally and emotionally we can!

Jim Rohn put it best when he said, “We must all wage an intense, lifelong battle against the constant downward pull. If we relax, the bugs and weeds of negativity will move into the garden and take away everything of value.”

So, what does this mean to each of us? Incorporate something into every day that inspires you and bolsters your spirituality. Listen to uplifting music. Dance. Go for a walk. Take a deep breath. Practice affirmations. Make physical contact with someone you love. 

Find calm during the storm.

I was just listening to a global spiritual teacher who compared what’s happening in our world right now to World War III. On an emotional level, this pandemic and the responses to it are as disturbing as a war. And when you deal with a global event like this, your spirituality or religion will help you make sense of it. Find your place of calmness and centeredness. It raises energy.

Be good to yourself.

Things will get better. Day always follows the night. We don’t know how long the night may last, but that’s just the nature of it. 

In the meantime, be gentle with yourself. I think for a lot of people, sleep patterns aren’t the same. Children are at home. Working parents who are trying to homeschool are feeling like failures. But this isn’t homeschooling—it’s crisis schooling! Schedules are disrupted. For some, their whole way of life is disrupted. 

Give yourself a break. Give others a break. Even if they don’t see things the way you do, be gentle. 

Make it flow. 

If I get myself into an emotional funk, whether it’s by taking in too much TV news or stressing about people who don’t think like I do or simply not taking the time to do those spiritual practices that raise my energy, my ASEA business is not going to flow the way I would want it to. Even if I put in the time, it’s not as fruitful. 

But when I take the time I need to access my energy and make sure I feel at peace, I’m in the right frame of mind when I talk to people or do a Zoom call. 

People can feel your energy, so do what you personally need to do to raise it.
