Through this I can get a different kind of energy than, let's say, from getting wrapped up in work-related projects. The problem solving, brainstorming, completion of projects is positive, the energy itself is intense, but it also fades faster...and while it is fulfilling, it doesn't really aid with the kind of internal relaxation...it's more wired.

    And I would guess that not releasing stress elevates it mostly for everybody...sooner or later.
    Does giving more energy than you have drain you? So then satisfying experiences still drain energy away and still would need to recharge in the zone?
    How do you feel good and energized in the absence of being in the zone? Is it possible, whats the deal with the cocoon bit, is that like hibernation.
    How do you release stress to gain energy and feel relaxed?

    In most cases, yes. Unless I can get it in return either from positive experiences or highly energetic people around me. It's like mutual give and take, mooching off of other people's energy. Giving out more energy than I have can also create a momentary effect of receiving a surge of energy but it is unstable and can be more draining than usual. None of this happens on command though, it depends on my mood at the time. At the end of the day, you'd still be absolutely beat.

    In some cases the mind would still be up for going on, but the body fails.

    Yes. Recharging and taking time away for oneself is still a must, you couldn't keep on going for long without it even though you might get the surges of energy. That's my experience anyway.

    How do you feel good and energized in the absence of being in the zone? Is it possible, whats the deal with the cocoon bit, is that like hibernation.
    To put it simply, I don't. Living without getting into one is manageable for a while, but that's where the wound up spring analogy comes into play again...the double negative effect...stress levels increase, energy levels drop and drop and drop...

    And yes, hibernation is a good way of explaining it.

    How do you release stress to gain energy and feel relaxed?
    Super-duper introvert mode. Like 21% said, lying around, enjoying whatever you enjoy during your "alone" time. But too much of a good stuff doesn't end up well either, it can also start to drain you.

    Plus, physical exercise, plenty of sleep, balanced diet...helps to maintain the stress levels on the low end and also they're a good way of releasing stress.

    So then you mooch off other peoples energy so that you can feel even more moochtastic or something.
    Does that mean bouncing off the surge of energy to replenish your energy and feel less drained and more refreshed from feeling relaxed?
    Why is being in the mood so important in relation to energy?

    Well that explains it.
    I had to do something like that too where I just totally stopped taking calls and answering anyone for weeks on end and just started chilling to detox from the overwhelming stress to get back to feeling unstressed.

    Yeah true in can lead to too much rumination and not enough spontaneity and can probably lead to anxieties and amplify some habits that are conterproductive like procrastination.

    Abso-moochtastic-lutely!!! But I can also energize people in return when my mood is good and I feel energetic, so it's mostly a collaboration of sorts. Even if people don't realize it. Hopefully I'm not an energy-vampire.

    Reading that sentence sucked me dry. Cannot...connect...the dots...must...mooch...

    Good mood creates energy, it helps to concentrate on the positive, diminishes the visible negativity, everything seems to be brighter, the positives pop out of the crowd of negatives, sort of, so it's easier to feel positive. It also draws in positive people and creates synergy, so mooching is easier.

    To the op.
    My energy level has been extremely high always. But, during recent years, it's been decreasing, a lot. Maybe it's because of my age (30+) or maybe it's something else, I don't know. I do miss high energy levels, because it's mostly fun. It can also be quite frustrating if there is nothing interesting to spend your energy to.

    I usually accomplish a lot, at work and at home. I do usually many things at the same time and manage to finish most of them too. But when I have no deadlines, I'm not inspired, I don't feel appreciated or have a bad mood or something like that , I don't accomplish anything at all. I just hang around (like now, lol).

    I have no idea from where my energy comes from. I mean I've been like this all of my life. My high energy level exhausts many people with low energy level but sometimes I can see that my energy level makes other energetic too, like I'm spreading the joy of energy around, lol.

    Regarding to my own energy, I spend it freely, I don't "save" any energy for the next day or some event. It comes and it goes, freely.

    So there is some kind of mooch'o'meter?

    Say would good moods create energy where you are feeling more energetic to do more without having to recharge in a zone. And then is that how maintaining energy levels helps with a relaxed mood also? How can you avoid absorbing the wrong energies and re-translating the right energies to feel good?

    I seem to have an issue where I absorb peoples energies usually the draining kind and get drained. As in the negative kind, its like practiced so often that now I'm trying to learn to absorb positive energy and restructure the reference in energy distribution.

    Hahah much like a heater during a cold day, warm energy to remove the chills. Its not like batteries is it?

    I have lots of energy when it comes to fun. I can go without sleep for 2 days straight if it means having fun for 2 days straight.

    If it involves work though...I'm very low energy. That applies to daily routine too.

    I have pretty good energy level for an introvert. Not so much for parties and social things but for just about everything else. Most of the time, when I get up, I'm excited about the things I'm going to that day and I'm rearing to go. Of course I usually end up thinking I'm going to do more than I can possibly accomplish.
