How do you maintain your energy?

#blog blog energy motivation Feb 25, 2022

There is a lot of talk about energy at the moment because of the ever increasing cost of keeping warm, keeping the lights on and filling up our vehicles. Without going into the politics around why this is happening, it’s worth considering the role that energy plays in our life.

The definition of energy according to oxford languages is: - power derived from the utilisation of physical or chemical resources, especially to provide light and heat or to work machines. It can also mean the strength and vitality required for sustained physical or mental activity and this is the meaning I’d like to explore.
