My new friend Michelle Currie of Meditative Arts just asked me to answer this question for her upcoming e-book: How do you stay refreshed during the day? What keeps you energized?
I thought it was such a great question, it deserved its own post.
People ask me all the time how I accomplish all that I do in life as a Pink Medicine Woman coach, author, workshop leader, doctor, artist, mother, and entrepreneur. And my standard answer is ďass in chairĒ — as in, you gotta work your ass off. But this question got me thinking. What allows me to get my ass in that chair so that I can finish that book/complete that solo art show/write that e-course/book those clients? Well, I make efforts to stay refreshed and feel energized!
What’s the secret sauce?
Well, I wake up feeling energized every morning because I am doing what I love and owning who I really am at my most essential, authentic core. But I wasnít always this way. On the contrary, in my old life, when I was practicing medicine full-time but not in a way that resonated with my authentic core, I woke up exhausted, even after eight hours of sleep. Now, I might have nights when I get way less sleep, and yet I still feel energized and refreshed in the morning because I am living my dreams. Honestly, if I knew I was going to die in three months, I wouldn’t change a thing about my life.
While my purpose — to empower, inspire, and catalyze change in women — keeps me energized emotionally and spiritually, I also make efforts to energize my body. I drink four glasses of fresh-squeezed green juice every day. I eat a healthy, whole foods diet light on sugar, caffeine, or processed foods. I take a hike out in nature as part of my daily routine. And I pretty much suck at it, but I try to meditate (see I need you, Michelle!).
The whole kit-and-kaboodle keeps my get-up-and-go revved up and kicking, which keeps me on task to do what I’m here on earth to accomplish — to love and be loved, to make a difference helping people overcome fear so they can leap into their dreams, to have a blast, and to ROCK this wild and precious life I’m blessed to live.
To stay refreshed and energized, I consciously make efforts to Own Pink by owning all the facets of what makes me whole — my creativity, spirituality, health, relationships, sexuality, career, and life purpose. So how do I do that?
