Energy Goes Where the Attention Flows

I stumbled upon this quote and it really stuck with me — “Energy goes where the attention flows”. In the past year, this past month especially, I’ve been putting a lot of thought into my priorities.

I challenge you to write out your priorities and for the next week document how much time you spend working on them versus the habits that you are trying to phase out (e.g. over-thinking, excessive social media, watching tv). Conceptualizing how much time you spend doing what allows you to evaluate how you spend your days.

We are creatures of habit; we give our time and attention to the things that matter most. Changing your mindset and creating positive habits will only benefit you. Next time you find yourself stuck with anxiety, over-thinking, procrastinating or just in a bad mindset, remind yourself that energy goes where the attention flows. The longer you spend in that negative mindset, the more energy you waste. Take that energy and expend it into something positive.

Be Like A Capybara

The capybara is the largest living rodent in the world. Hailing out of South America, these fuzzy creatures are adorable and also highly sociable. They often live in groups of 10-20; they also get along well with other animals of all shapes and sizes.

You have probably come across photos of capybaras on social media (there are tumblr blogs devoted to their cuteness after all).

May these sweet creatures remind you to stay humble and kind. Capybaras interact with animals and reptiles of all kinds; too often, we judge a book by its cover. It’s important to “be like a capybara” and be gentle and nonjudgemental with others.
