So often we unconsciously tap into the collective energy around us by way of the media, advertising, or conversations that we overhear. Often this collective energy is not in alignment with who and what we are. It can sway our decisions and drain our energy. But there are also positive attributes in the collective.
Take a moment to look around at children. They are full of enthusiasm, laughter, and energy. Studies have shown that children laugh an average of 300 times a day while adults only get 15 chuckles in each day, if they are lucky. Laughter is a huge stress reducer. If we could just find humor in the things we do each day, it would ease a tremendous amount of stress. Children are also never short of energy and enthusiasm. They run and jump and play with abandon all day long!
How about, just for today, try tuning into the essence of a child. Observe children while you are driving to work in the morning, jogging, or listening to their voices in your neighborhood. Tap into their collective humor, enthusiasm, and energy. Then see how your day flows and how much energy you have at the end of it.
