But, today, was designated “catch-up-day” post travels.
It’s amazing how many emails can pile up when one is out-the-door and out-of-town.
As I starred at my MacBook Pro this morning I was overcome by a sea of email.
I had to sort by name, subject, and day just to make sense of it all.
But, then I found the missing link!
I uncovered the URL to a really timely, informative, and smart video just waiting for me to watch.
Before I reveal all the details, let me just ask one question:
Do you have enough energy?
As in, how tired do you feel on a regular basis?
You may already be familiar with The Energy Project by Tony Schwartz.
It’s a full-court press to bring awareness to managing our energy, not our time.
That’s pretty counter-intuitive to the work around the clock, not just 9-5 world, isn’t it?!
Precisely why I love The Energy Project principles.
Mostly because it fits right in here at The Promise 365.
The focus is on four dimensions of personal energy:

The Good News
If your energy stores are already in meltdown mode, there is a solution.
It is called Positive Rituals.
They are simple.
As told in the Harvard B. Review:
These rituals include taking
brief breaks at specific intervals, expressing
appreciation to others, reducing interruptions,
and spending more time on
activities people do best and enjoy most.
There is so much to absorb, I suggest you just take the quiz.
It’s enough to get your mind thinking about areas where you can make a change.
Simple, easy, effective changes mind you.
More on that tomorrow.
Until then, if burnout is on your doorstep, I will remind us all what is still considered the most simple and effective practice, proven and tested over time.
Something you can do at home or at work.
And it’s free…
Take a deep breath.
In and out.
(Because we can’t always have a massage every day of the week)
In light of the very real energy crisis and fallout in Japan I offer this:
If you would like to donate to Save the Children’s Japan Earthquake Tsunami Children in Emergency Fund, please follow this link. I just did, and while it isn’t going to stop the meltdown, it will help a child.
