What My Clients Are Saying About Their Energy Level

As a business coach my clients are telling me they feel out of balance, tired,  stressed.  Some say they lack energy.  I often use the following tool to help them understand why they feel the way they do and thought that it may be helpful for others as well.

We all have 100% of our life energy.  Even though sometimes we feel we have much less than we had at another point in time, we always have 100% available to us.  The question is how much of our total life energy are we giving to each of the six life arenas?

 Life Arena
























Steps to complete the table:

  1. Guesstimate the percentage of life energy you are giving in each of your life arenas at the present time.  Remember – they need to add up to 100%.  Enter your current allocation in the Present column.
  2. Study the numbers you placed in the Present column and decide if this is really the life energy distribution that gives you life satisfaction.
  3. Enter the life energy allocation you would like to see in the Ideal column.

Once you know the areas of your life that are out of balance, it is easier to see why you may feel tired, stressed, or lack energy.

Let me know what your scores look like and the steps you can identify to bring your life energy closer to your ideal.  If you need help with more ideas, let’s talk!



  1. Thanks Holly for this interesting exercise. I can’t wait to see how I score and if it is how I want my life to be.

  4. A very good exercise indeed and these points are very important in maintaining a balanced and fulfilling life, but we also have to understand that there are other energy draining elements besides what our activities may or may not be affecting. Energy draining elements such as toxins in our environment. Toxins are found everywhere in our food supply, air, clothes, electromagnetic energies emitted from all of the electronic devises we use and are around, radio waves emitting signals that interfere with our bodies natural energy frequencies. This is how medicine actually works on a chemical level. But unseen energies effect us very much so on a day to day basis from every angle in this modern age. In order to control, balance or eliminate the adverse side effects of these toxins you have to have and be able to deliver a greater level of the natural frequency energy than what the toxic energy gives off. Every organ of the body has its own energy frequency it works with and when a toxic (or unnatural) energy impedes or changes the natural energy flow to that part of the body it causes that particular part of the body to malfunction or not work properly.
