BeTheChange > KnowHow > Energy

In a world under pressure we often forget the importance and relationship our body and mind has with energy. Without energy there is no life, so if our energy levels are not in balance this will absolutely impact our creativity, productivity, focus, mind and body functions. For people to live up to and deliver their real potential we need to understand our own energy needs and realise that our poor food, drink and lifestyle choices hold us back.

Stress and depression have a tight grip of society these days, why you might ask? Because we make choices that create a lot of conflict in us. Most people work for employers they do not like, only few work with what they actually love, this is the first major problem. Secondly, we do not diversify, we channel our focus on one thing in the hope of becoming great at that thing, when actually this hinders our learning, because everything in life is interconnected. One cannot be good at HR if they do not understand operations, because how could they possible serve the larger need. A playmaker in football can never reach their full potential without learning the deeper meaning of leadership, which cannot be learn on the pitch, without diversifying and widening our horizons we will be mediocre at best.

Maintaining a healthy flow of energy hence requires us to consume organic food and drink, as much as possible (high quality honey is a great way of maintaining healthy energy levels), we need to do all we can to create opportunities to work with things we love to reduce the amount of internal conflict in life, we need to maintain a more conscious lifestyle that focuses on balance to reduce stress, and finally we need to stay curious to learn more things. A jack of all trades is worth so much more than a person with horse flaps, because they bring perspective and can grow to become more, very simple.
