What Gets You Energised?

What gets you energised?

What gets your atoms jumping?

What gets your molecules dancing?

What gets your juices flowing?

What gets your heart pumping?


I like people – occasionally. That’s why good networking can leave me feeling more energised at the close of the event than at the beginning.

I like food. I like wine – a lot. I like Hotel du Vin!

‘Like’ is good, but ‘Love’ is better!

I LOVE ideas.


I love thoughts – new positive thoughts wrapped in endless possibilities.

And I love thoughtfulness. Thoughtfulness is the fruitfulness of good thoughts.

I love the thoughtfulness that goes into a bar of artisan Goats’ Milk Soap.  The small production run.  The attention to detail.  The recycled floral fabric that wraps each bar.


I value that. It energises me.


I love the outputs of a mind that has wrestled with the harsh realities of humanity and yet has come out positive, hopeful, pro-human, pro-future, pro-creation, pro-responsibility, pro-active.  Like Oprah Winfrey.

I love a mind that whilst tormented by circumstances beyond control has managed to maintain the good humour that is within our control.  I’m drawn to these overcomers like a moth to the light!

And energy has a sound, the sound of laughter!


Humour, for most of us, is energising!  In fact, it is said that,

“Laughter is the best medicine!”

Hear some words of wit that energised me about that best of medicines for the soul:


“At the height of laughter, the universe is flung into a kaleidoscope of new possibilities.” Jean Houston


“Laughter is the shortest distance between two people.” Victor Borge


“Among those whom I like or admire, I can find no common denominator, but among those whom I love, I can: all of them make me laugh.” W. H. Aulden


It’s purely personal but…


Give me a good book.

Give me a great story.

But above all, give me a wonderful idea… and a bit of a laugh!

So, what shall we give you to energise you?

Do tell!
