As a top-rated motivational speaker for Lessons in Leadership, whose members include Steven Covey and Ken Blanchard, Dr. Robert Copper has taught thousands of people how to have enough energy for the workday and for their loved ones- the very reasons they are working so hard. Now his research and experience culminates in High-Energy Living, a groundbreaking program of personal revitalization.
The program is based on four fundamental states of human energy: calm, active, sensory, and heartfelt. Dr. Cooper believes that most people are only utilizing one or two of these energy sources and are therefore susceptible to fatigue, stress, and depression. The book begins with a self-evaluation test to help readers identify which sources of energy they lack. They then learn to make a series of 21 lifestyle switches, such as "forced exhalation" breathing technique that revs up active energy by releasing the hormone catecholamine. With High-Energy Living, readers can tap into all four energy sources at once, unleashing infinite possibilities for a more vigorous life.
"Do you know what it's like to feel fully alive?" asks Robert K. Cooper. "What if you could experience your best day every day?" Cooper, a motivational speaker and the author of Low-Fat Living and Health and Fitness Excellence, aims to help you tap your inner energy reserves and perform at your peak all the time. That's a tall order when many of us feel tired and tense, but Cooper has a whole book full of practical strategies for cranking up your energy.
There are four kinds of energy, Cooper explains: calm energy (natural flow state), active energy (produced by motion), sensory energy (engaging with life through the senses), and heartfelt energy (deep drive for a meaningful life and significant relationships). Cooper describes 25 "switches"--each with a series of steps--that will turn on these different types of energy. Calm-energy switch 1 is a series of tips and exercises for tapping into calm energy within the first minutes of waking. Active-energy switch 3 is to "have a vigorous lunch," which includes physically stepping away from what you've been doing, eating a good lunch (low-fat, protein-rich, good-tasting, whole-food, with pages of tips for making good choices), getting 10 minutes of exercise, and reconnecting with the big picture before getting back to work.
None of these switches are instant fixes; rather, they comprise a multistep process for retraining your habits and attitudes. You won't be able to put them all into action at once. Each one that you can incorporate into your daily life will help you reconnect with your natural energy, become more productive, and enjoy your life more. --Joan Price
