When it comes to managing energy one of the first things we have to do is look at what is draining our energy. Simply put you can look at yourself as a container or a barrel filled with energy. If there is a hole in the barrel then what you want to do is plug the hole.
Both people and things give and consume energy. When it comes to things, the more stuff we have the more energy they consume from us. Without getting into the metaphysics of it all that is a simple guideline one can keep in mind when it comes to energy and things.
So, how do we know what to keep and what to get rid off. For me, one of the guidelines I implement is the “Container Rule”. I create a container for my stuff and when the container gets full one of two things need to happen. I make more space by getting rid of some of the stuff in the container to make space for new stuff or I don’t get new stuff. People tend to have a lot of clothes for example. A lot of which they hardly ever wear. Apply the container rule. Limit the amount of space for storing your clothes. For example, limit it to 3 or 4 drawers. When those drawers are full you can either get rid of some stuff (give away or recycle them) to make room for new clothes or simply don’t buy any new clothes.
