Library: Are You Fully Charged?

The three key pillars to improving your well-being are to have purpose (being part of something larger than ourselves), value people and experiences over stuff and put out health first, writes Tom Rath in his latest book, Are You Fully Charged? The 3 Keys to Energizing Your Work and Life. The biggest changes in our well-being start with small steps.

Listen to the Live Happy Now podcast with Tom Rath talking about being fully charged

Build on strengths

Double down on your talents and spend your time doing what you can do better than anyone in the world. Spend time building your skills and knowledge because your greatest potential for growth and development lies in the area where you already have natural talent.

Cultivate relationships

The connections we make with people are the most important assets of our lives. Our relationships give our lives meaning, but we can forget to be present with the people in our lives. Make your relationships count by unplugging and minimizing distractions during conversations.

Think about your energy levels

How you eat, move and sleep are essential to having more energy throughout the day. Make vegetables the center of your meals, and eliminate as much added sugar and fried foods as possible.
The more you move, the better your mood. Look at sleep as an investment in your future and not an expense of time. With small wins each day you’ll be able to create more meaning in your life.
