What Creates Energy, and How Can You Have More?
babies and young children gives us an idea of how energy and happiness
are related. Watch a baby smiling or laughing and you will see his
whole body moving; his arms and legs wave about and he seems to tingle
all over with pure delight.
energy of the young is often expressed in activity. On the other hand,
lack of activity, such as excessive television watching, can create
lethargy even in small children. I have observed this lack of energy
in people of all ages. A few times I have also gone through stages
of lethargy and lack of energy myself, but now I find it easy to regenerate
energy, and rejuvenate myself.
means to 'make young again'.
observing children you can discover more ways to energize yourself
so that you will become more youthful with natural vitality. Being
able to energize yourself when you are feeling lethargic will give
you a powerful tool to enrich your life, create more happiness, and
regain your youth. What’s more, if you have children you will
demonstrate to them by example that energy can be generated easily.

What Does Energy Mean to Others? The Question and the Answers
began my new study of Energy by asking other people two questions
- 'What energizes you? and What de-energizes you?. The answers surprised
day we hear much about food and nutrition and its importance in providing
energy. I have experienced the energizing and rejuvenating effect
of good nutrition myself. This helped me overcome breast cancer, 'incurable'
osteo-arthritis, sciatica and other health problems.
thought many would put good nutrition first as an energizer, but few
did. Even some people who work in the nutrition industry chose something
else as their number one energizer.
Some said good nutrition gave them energy to do the other energizing
things they love to do.
variety of the answers to the questions was amazing. Some of the answers
were: music, singing, dancing, the beach or rainforest, looking at
a beautiful view, creativity and completing things.
Some said exercise, walking, going to the gym, and action itself,
learning and acquiring knowledge, friendship and interesting people,
breakfast or lunch with friends, helping others and enabling them
to make changes.
God or other spiritual sources were featured, as well as the weather
and good nutrition.
Passion was an energy factor, and some mentioned humour - laughter
the best medicine.. Some told me that children energized them, and
others said 'doing something different every day'.
knew what I meant when I asked 'what energizes you?' and only a few
were not able to find an answer. What

The Experience of Energy
probably easier to understand how you experience energy by looking
at how you feel when you lack it.
you lack energy you may feel constantly tired, lethargic, sleepy,
depressed, sad, flat, frustrated, as though you are beating your head
against a brick wall, foggy unclear mind, unwell, dragging yourself
around, unmotivated, not wanting to get out of bed, memory loss, inability
to concentrate, overwhelmed, confused, incapable, stupid, trapped,
beaten, frustrated, headachy, a victim.
feelings of energy will be the opposite of those mentioned above.
diverse responses I received about how people experienced energy were:
A feeling of comfort, a perception of joy and peace, grounded and
integrated, high as a kite, happy, a spacey feeling, like in a space
warp, euphoric, joyousness, happiness, child-like curiosity, a feeling
like you can do anything or be anything.
Get a Buzz
does the expression 'getting a buzz' come from? Is it related to the
feeling of energy you might get with a mild electric shock?
When I worked in a new school with synthetic carpets and metal strips
around the blackboards I found my body picked up so much static electricity
that when I touched the edge of the blackboard I would see sparks
from my fingers, and the shock created nausea.It certainly gave me
a 'buzz'. The students capitalized on this static electricity by rubbing
their feet on the carpet and giving other children a shock by touching
have expressions in our language that describe electrical energy in
our bodies as a 'shock'. We say 'It was a shock to receive the bad
news' or it was 'a shock to the system', suggesting the whole body
was shocked. We say 'the news was shocking'.
Electrical energy produced naturally in the body by natural energy
highs and natural vitality is a pleasurable sensation. I would love
to hear about how you experience energy. Email
