10% of battery remaining
How many times have you seen this message pop up on your smart phone or tablet?
This battery alert is all too familiar for most of us who are plugged in non-stop, frustrated when our devices threaten to disconnect us from the world.
But, do you recognize the warning from your body that notifies you that your batteries are getting low?
Recently, I found that I'd misplaced one of my chargers. The result: using one charger to attempt to maintain 2 devices. I didn't allow one device to fully charge before disconnecting it from its power source but still expected it to keep on working for long periods of time.
The realization dawned on me that we often do the same thing. We don't always pay attention to how much charge we have and it's not until the alert goes off (or worse yet the device dies altogether) that we realize we need to plug in.
So, it's got me thinking about how consistently I plug into my Source to keep my battery fully charged. As I develop a system to put into place to minimize the frequency of draining my battery completely, here is what I am considering to avoid hitting zero:
And finally, the recognition that my spiritual health is the key to maintaining my physical and emotional health reminds me that I need to consistently plug into my Source (who I call God) and nurture that relationship. This is now my Priority #1.
I'd love to hear what makes your list and what you identify as your top priority for keeping your batteries charged.
