Layla’s session is designed for individuals to take a deep look at themselves and identify what drains their energy and what creates energy for them. We are a generation of tired people. Now, more than ever, it’s hard to generate enough energy to manage our busy lives. From having too much on our schedules, to relying on fast food, coffee, and energy drinks, it’s no wonder we feel frazzled. The busier we get, the less attention we pay to our health which dramatically affects our energy levels. Before long, we don’t have the energy we need to accomplish our ever-growing to-do list. Sure, paring down your activities can go a long way towards curbing your exertion and make it possible to stretch your energy, but there are also things you can do to increase or generate energy for your busy life. This session is designed to get you thinking about your energy – how you generate it, use it, and help keep you from losing it needlessly. There are discussions that can help you assess your energy and develop a plan to generate high-quality energy that will boost your productivity and increase your capacity to tackle your busy life.
