Imagine your inner resilience as a rechargeable battery. Like a battery, some activities make you feel recharged and other things make you feel drained. The Energy Battery exercise allows you to think through your day – either a typical day or today – and decide how each activity made you feel. Did you feel energized afterwards or drained?
The daily record is a tool for tracking your daily practice eliciting the relaxation response and progress towards the goals you set in your resiliency goal setting questionnaire. If used consistently the daily record can help you to see what is working, what is not working and were you need to make changes to your habits and routines.
