The Four Pillars of Energy Management to Help you with Stress, Resilience, Overwhelm, and Burnout
Pillar 4: Environmental Health and Wellbeing
The last of the Four Pillars of Energy Management deals with environmental health and wellbeing. Environmental wellbeing encompasses all of our surroundings, from our workspace to the company we keep.
The negative impact of visual clutter
Visual clutter can influence mental clutter and make it hard to focus. Disorganization and clutter have a cumulative effect on our brains. Our brains like order, so constant visual reminders of disorganization reduce our ability to focus. The visual distraction of clutter increases cognitive overload and can reduce our working memory.
The influence of the company you keep
Our interpersonal relationships greatly influence us. Those around us influence our decisions, self-esteem, and the way we think.
Everyone is their own person, but we’re more affected by our environment than we think. It’s ideal to be closely surrounded by positive, supportive people who want you to succeed. Understanding the influence of others on your performance is critical to your success.
To start instituting this pillar into your own life, I suggest taking these initial steps:
All these beliefs are what’s holding you back. At birth, we come into this world with no beliefs at all! As we grow, it is our family, teachers, & environment that bombards us with the beliefs that stick with us through the years.
What are some of the learned behaviors that no longer serve you?
What are some of the limiting beliefs that are holding you back & keeping you playing small?
If you don’t know you can ask yourself the following questions:
- What is your most consistent thought about yourself?
- What is your most consistent thought about your body?
- What is your most consistent thought about your health?
- What is your most consistent thought about money?
If you notice resistance, there’s a good indication that you may need to dig a little deeper in one of those areas.
