It’s time to talk science on the Yay For Business Podcast. Today I am discussing one of my favorite topics that I have researched quite a bit: energy management. We always hear about how to manage our time and squeeze more hours into the working day, but it turns out, that is not what we should concentrate on. Consider this episode your entrepreneurial intervention for pivoting your focus from time management to energy management. Contrary to what so many entrepreneurs say, you don’t need to find more time; you need to maximize the time you have by using your energy efficiently.
Energy is a vital resource for business and life. By the end of today’s episode, you will have a better understanding of where your energy comes from and how you can use that energy to benefit your business. I am excited to share both my personal experiences and scientific research about why our bodies need to feel both stress and rest. By tuning into our energy cycles, we can prepare ourselves for stressful work and restful vacation times.
In today’s episode, we’re specifically covering
- Where energy comes from at the atomic level
- The importance of paying attention to your energy
- Fight or flight vs. rest and repair
- The limitations of working too much
- How energy works in a cycle
- Using energy to build a business that grows without you
