As most of you know, we are all energy. Energy is either anabolic (this builds you up) or catabolic (this breaks you down). It’s important to note that everything in our lives, including tasks, goals, relationships, jobs, etc., are either anabolic or catabolic as well.
Consider all the things in your life that help you, or hinder you, from being the best you can be. To get the most energy out of life, you’ll need to decide what energy (people, places, and things) you want to keep, and what you want to let go.
This week, make an inventory of the people, places, and things in your life and decide whether they are anabolic or catabolic. For the catabolic items, think about how you can change them or let them go.
