5 Tips for Energetic Shifts: How to Get Stagnant Energy Circulating

We are our own creators of new and old - of questions and answers. When we reclaim our openness, we reclaim our capacity to see new things and regain control over our energy. This gives us the power to see through a fresh lens that prioritizes hope over fear. Our inner fertile space for newness expands and our energy starts shifting again.

How to Recognize Stagnant Energy

Some signs of stagnant energy include a loss of creativity, increased feelings of anxiety, feeling disconnected from yourself and others, feeling a lack of motivation, a loss of self-confidence, and negative feelings towards the people around you. Stagnant energy can come from many different sources such as a lack of sleep, work stress, relationship issues, or a lack of meaning in your life. Stagnant energy can happen to anyone at any age. If you feel like your energy has been low for some time and you can't pinpoint the cause, it's likely due to stagnant energy.

Start your Day with a Mindful Morning Ritual

When we start our days off with a sense of purpose, it sets us up to have a more positive outlook for the rest of the day. We don't want to start out with negativity because we've already got enough of that inside of us! Start your morning off with a positive outlook and an energizing morning ritual. A personal list of strategic (but petite) rituals can help to fight fatigue and restore balance throughout the day. This could be as simple as going for a walk outside, meditating, or writing your thoughts down. When we start our days with positive energy, it sets up a great flow for the rest of the day and uplifts our mood for greater wellbeing as we navigate particularly loaded days.

Shake Things Up

Sometimes stagnant energy comes from a lack of change or challenge in our lives. When we are experiencing too little or no change in our lives, our energy becomes stagnant. To shake things up in your life and get your energy flowing again, try adding some new challenges to your days. This could be as simple as taking a new route to work, stepping out of your comfort zone, or trying a new hobby. Having these new challenges in our lives helps us grow and allows us to see new parts of ourselves. Incorporating a mindful morning routine can serve us as a solid foundation that gives us strength to take more steps out of our comfort zones during the day. As we know we can always return to our safe space the next day.  

Get your energy moving with the power of warmth

Warmth is one of the simplest ways to shift stagnant energy. Getting your energy moving and circulating again using warmth can be as simple as taking a warm bath, going for a walk outside in the sun or using the moon-pad. Warming your body up naturally can help circulate your energy and increase your focus.

We lose touch with what we love, who we are and what makes us happy.

We all have passions and pastimes that used to excite us and make us feel like the most positive version of ourselves. When our energy is flowing, this is when we feel most like ourselves. We lose touch with these things and the people we love when our energy is stagnant. This is because stagnant energy is heavy, dense and hard to move. When our energy is flowing, we are light, easy to move and happy. Stagnant energy can be caused by a variety of different factors. It all comes down to how we deal with it and how we can get it circulating again. If you feel like your energy has been low for some time and you can't pinpoint the cause, it's likely due to stagnant energy.


Know the signs of stagnant energy

If your energy is stagnant, you will likely notice that you feel more anxious and stressed than usual. You might also feel disconnected from your loved ones and have a hard time making decisions. Stagnant energy can also make you feel uninspired and unmotivated. You may also feel like you're in a negative headspace and that life isn't worth living. Stagnant energy can occur at any age and has no specific cause. It can happen for a variety of reasons, including work stress, relationship issues, or a lack of meaning in your life.


When we embrace change and challenge we are able to keep our energy flowing freely.

There are many different ways to get your energy flowing again. It's important to identify what's causing your stagnant energy and find a way to deal with it. Once you've dealt with the cause of your stagnant energy, you'll find that it's much easier to get your energy flowing again.
