In the New Year of 2014 the energy of man is something that has been proven and documented by science. What is universally accepted is that like any form of energy we have an input and an output, the more calories we intake then more physically active we can be. This is a very basic and primitive explanation but it does adequately describe the first of the four types of energies Tony Schwartz, the author of “Manage your energy, not your time.” talks about in his new book. The other three types are emotional energy, mental energy and spiritual energy.
The managing of these four distinctly different types of energies is essential to your optimum performance as a human being. The first and most easily understood is the physical, how healthy you or, or how efficient your biological organism is. This has to do primarily with how fit you are, your diet and the amount of wear and tear you expose your body too. These four energies are uniquely important but without physical energy your body will not work.
Emotional energy has to do with inherent satisfaction or happiness. This is one of the two more difficult to measure energies but it has a great impact on our own well-being as well as the well-being of the individuals around us. Those of us who are happy, optimistic, are talked about as having high energy or are all together positive give off that positively charged energy. Obviously the happier you are when doing what you are doing the better you will do it. Slightly less obvious is the theory that the emotional energy you discharge into the environment around you is reflected directly back on to you, in other words think negative thoughts experience negative reactions, think positive and you will see like results, a classic example of the self-fulfilling prophecy.
Mental energy has to do with your ability to focus. This type of energy is effected significantly by the other three and what is known as your Ultradian rhythm. Our Ultradian rhythm is cyclical and operates on a 90-minute window, in other words our minds can focus at their fullest potential for only about 90 minutes at a time and then we need to rest. In todays modern age the ability for one to focus is easily quantifiable.
Finally there is spiritual energy, which is the other type of energy that is difficult to measure. This fourth form of energy is directly entwined with your emotional energy and has to do with understanding and being satisfied with your over all purpose. Being comfortable or confidant answering questions like “What is the meaning of it all?” Why am I here?” or “Why am I doing all of this?”
Mastering all of these energies and managing them properly is no easy task. Many of these types of energy are only starting to be recognized by mainstream science. The important thing to remember when beginning is that acknowledgment of these energy forms is paramount to mastering them, once understood that they exist then and only then can we hope to optimize and manage them.
