Optimize your energy for a happier life.

Design Your Energy is a new program focused on helping you thrive in your daily life by giving you the tools to identify activities that drain your energy, and follow those that energize you.

Developed in partnership with faculty Bill Burnett, ’79, MS ’82, and Dave Evans, ’75, MS ’76, this simple program-in-a-box will help you reframe and tackle the wicked problem of energy drain.

During this video-guided activity, Bill and Dave will guide you and a group of alumni and friends through a brief design-thinking exercise and teach you how to optimize your energy around your weekly routine.


Design Your Energy is brought to you in part by Stanford Associates funding, and was developed by the Stanford Alumni Association in partnership with the Stanford Life Design Lab and Worldview Stanford.
