Today we’ll be exploring the concept of energy flares, energy disruptions, and energy eruptions, which are basically anything that gets in the way of increasing your energy. These are very different from person to person, so it’s important to figure out what yours are so you can act accordingly. For example, thanks to my mom’s playing, I can sleep to the sound of harp music -- but for someone else, this might be disruptive.

Other common causes of energy disruptions are things like too much noise and an overstimulation of sound. This can take many forms such as barking dogs, loud kids, or even airplanes. Allergies are another common energy disruption. Being around too many people can be as well (though, again, this depends on the person). Often, our energy disruptions change and we become more sensitive as we get older.

As you work toward figuring out your own sources of energy disruptions, it’s important that you think very specifically about your own experiences instead of just basing your responses on common ones. Keep in mind that some people need more stimulation to feel alive, with the extreme example being adrenaline junkies. Your own need for stimulation is very personal and may not conform to common causes of energy flares and disruptions.

In this episode, you’ll learn more about how to find your own energy flares. I’ll also give advice on how to take the best care of your body, which involves treating it well before it starts to show symptoms! There’s also a quiz with a prize: a copy of the Ageless Energy Adult Coloring Book. In future episodes, we’ll have guests, more opportunities, and great contests, so keep listening!
