Energy

Energy, peak Performance

This a big big motherhood statement. It can have completely different connotations for different people.

Einstein created such an elegant equation E=mc^2 which looks at the physical form of how mass can be converted into energy. I am not sure though if we have yet figured out a way to verify the other side of the equation to convert energy into mass. All those of my vintage would remember the English serial Star Trek and Captain Kirk & Mr Spock. They had used the same concept of mass and energy to transport people without physically landing their space craft.

In Indian mythology there’s a special place for the Goddess “SHAKTI” or her various forms in the formation of the universe.

My idea of writing this post however was a little different. Today I was listening to a discussion of Jay Abraham and Paul Adamson of Oyster Yachts.

When he was summarizing the discussion the top 3 skills he listed was Energy, Influence and Flexibility.

Its very rare that people rate energy as one of the top 3 and he put it at number one.

I rate energy as a key factor for success. Energy is what let’s you hit Peak Performance on a consistent basis.

I have written earlier about various experiments that I have done with breathing techniques and Yoga to help improve my energy levels. I have also written about how I am changing my food habits to eliminate white sugar from my diet to increase my energy levels.

Anyone’s performance comes down when they don’t have energy. But they still hurt their body by eating food high in sugar and carbohydrates that drains energy after the initial high.

Another activity – I used to drink about 6-7 cups of coffee in a day. I have brought it down to only two. I am working to eliminate at least one more cup. Its helped reduce my acidity and also the fluctuations in my energy.

I would love to hear from you on your efforts to improve sustained energy levels.

Till next time then.

Carpe Diem!!!
