Establish a Baseline for Your Fitness and Wellness Efforts Personal energy is one of our most valuable assets and by learning to manage it, says performance psychologist Dr. Jim Loehr, author of “The Power of Story,” we can learn to direct it towards what really matters in life. A free self-test provides an energy management baseline.

Orlando, FL (PRWEB) February 10, 2009 — The symptoms of workplace and personal stress have a familiar face: Impatience, apathy, poor anger management, and lack of common politeness are but a few. People whose mental, spiritual, emotional, or physical energy are depleted and unbalanced produce all these symptoms and more. While this is widely understood, its antidote is often elusive.

“Personal energy is an asset that we have to manage,” says Dr. Jim Loehr, Chief Creative Officer of the Human Performance Institute and author of The Power of Story: Change Your Story, Change Your Destiny in Business and in Life. “The best way to do that is develop energy management skills. Only then can we learn to direct our energy to any area of life that really matters.”

As individuals and employers form their self-renewal plans for 2009, the Human Performance Institute is providing a free self-test that takes only five minutes, the Full Engagement* Free Profile. It provides a baseline of physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual engagement and helps individuals diagnose their challenges.

The first step to real change for many individuals, says Dr. Loehr, is to infuse some reality into their current stories. “We give life to our beliefs with every story we tell ourselves and others,” says Dr. Loehr. “Put simply, energy follows our stories.” He adds, “Assessments can help make those stories reality-based.” Dr. Loehr is a performance psychologist who has worked with world-class athletes, businesspeople, military special forces, medical professionals and others to help them achieve highest levels of sustained performance. He is author or coauthor of several popular assessments and 14 books, such as the 2003 bestseller The Power of Full Engagement.
