When participating on the forums, I believe we're using bodily functions (always), mental energy, and social. At times, I would say emotional, too. She says weddings and funerals use all of these. Staci says to manage these energy uses and gain control. Think about them, plan, and pay attention, she says. Could be a useful tool to improve our quality of life and help us think we're more in control. I hope this helps.
