In contrast, we are all acutely aware of the battery on our phone. We know exactly how long we can go without plugging in. We take steps to make sure that it is fully charged before we head out the door. If we forget, we have a backup plan in the form of a car charger or portable charger that can fit in your purse. Charging stations are popping up everywhere, in the mall and in stadiums to help people recharge when they are on the go. Letting your phone battery run out is unthinkable and for some may cause a minor anxiety attack.
Why the contrast? Why are there some batteries that we diligently check, while others are so easy to ignore? I equate the phone battery to your immediate needs. It is your to do list. Every day you expend most of your energy running from place to place, checking items off the list and moving on to the next one. You take time to recharge this battery so that you can check more things off the list. The smoke detector battery is more like your personal needs. It is the battery you need to recharge in order to feel your best physically and emotionally. It is a battery that is easier to ignore, but if you ignore it for too long the consequences could be costly.
Which low battery will you recharge today?
