5 Energy Vampires to kick out of your life today
Halloween is a time for trick or treating and getting ready for wintertime. You might be ready for ghosts and witches but have you spared a thought for energy vampires?
An Energy Vampire is something which drains your energy. It just sucks the life out of you.
If you are really busy at work, or have been looking for a new job for some time, you might be feeling a bit flat.
2020 has seen lots of change and sometimes that means we miss our usual support tools, and need a bit of help.
There's no better time than now to start getting some energy back into your life.
The 5 energy vampires in this article can be a great way to get you started. You can then identify others that are holding you back.
Here are 5 energy vampire evaporations to get you started today!
Social media - you knew this was coming didn't you? If checking your social media leaves you drained, then why not switch off notifications and make a decision on how often you will check it. Then when you do look at it, set a timer to limit the time you spend on it.
People - is there someone in your life who leaves you feeling drained? Someone who is unsupportive, loads you up with their issues perhaps? You might feel able to avoid them and I’m not suggesting you ‘ghost’ them. But you might be able to find a way to build up your resilience or better manage how you are around them.
Clutter - if you have a cluttered drawer, wardrobe, office, desk or an entire home, then that can leave you feeling drained without you even realising it. Now that we have dark evenings and cold weather, it’s the perfect time to go through the clutter and make some space.
Unhealthy habits - you know the ones I mean. Maybe it’s overdoing the sugar, going to bed really late, drinking lots of beer and wine? Maybe now the weather's darker, wetter and colder, you've stopped taking your lunchtime walk? Take a step today towards a healthier habit.
You - final one is you. Yes, you. And yes, the other 4 are about you taking action but this one is all about You. How are you getting in your own way? Making life harder than it needs to be? This can be the most energy sapping vampire of all.
To work on how to rid yourself of your worst energy vampire, start by choosing one, and then deciding on the first, simple step to take to get rid of it. Start today - no time like the present!
