A – Z Challenge ~ E is for Energy

Energy. We need it to live, to travel and to communicate.  There is another kind of energy we use each day that we most likely never think about.

Internal energy. Yes!

That energy that comes from taking care of our bodies and not filling it with crap is the best kind of energy.  Energy that comes from getting some exercise each day, laying off the cakes and cookies, and taking a 20 minute power nap once in a while is a long-lasting energy.

Coffee, soda, 5 Hour Energy Drink and drugs give us temporary boosts that get us going for a while. But in the long run, we sustain better energy when we take care of our bodies and know when it is time to rest!

Take notice the next time you are full of energy.  Did you eat light?  Did you leave your worries behind?  Is your day going well?  Is your writing taking off? And if you have no energy, go get some!  (the legal kind of course!) 😉

Energy:  It’s not just for appliances.

  1. I loved the last line! very clever. and you are so right. I can tell when my body is run down and I can always attribute it to not enough sleep or the wrong kinds of food. Great reminder to take care of ourselves on a daily basis, or everything we are involved in, suffers.


  2. So true! I am slow today after playing 6 hours of tennis in the last 3 days coming off a weekend of biking. I know that I will be playing a lot more than that soon enough, but my body is feeling it. My coffee mug is full and could use a warm up….
