“Meditation and mindfulness practices [help] to quiet ‘mind chatter’ and connect with your deeper essence,” Marter said. If you’re new to meditation, start by sitting in a comfortable position, closing your eyes and taking several deep breaths. Say a mantra – such as “peace” – or visualize a calming image – such as the ocean. You’ll also find many different meditations online to guide your practice. Our energy naturally ebbs and flows, Marter said. “The ebbs are necessary for reflecting and rebooting ourselves.” There are many physical and emotional reasons your energy dips. So before reaching for a fix, figure out what’s triggering your dip. Then make the change.
