We talk about ways to manage your energy better, even though we are all in isolation. If we don’t manage our energy well, we lose productivity, and our mental health goes down the drain.
Most people are now working at home or looking for jobs which will take up their time and energy. So here are some ways to help you manage your energy better during the day.
I know that this is a difficult situation for most but try to be as positive as possible. Extreme Limitz Photography mentions that positive energy brings out the best in people.
Work out when you are the most energetic.
For some people, it can be morning, and for others, it can be at night. Work out what’s best for you. We all have different bodies and rhythms and know when we are most energetic.
And don’t force it. Some days you might not be as energetic.
Set goals for the day
Most people can get more done in a day if they set some goals. Your goals should be specific and measured. Work out what you can achieve during the day. You should work this out over breakfast
Even though you are in isolation, it doesn’t mean that you can skip breakfast. If you skip breakfast, then you lose productivity.
We need about 150-300 mins of exercise, and we should always move more. If you’re allowed outside, then that is great. But if not, you can download the Les Mills on Demand and do the workouts inside your own house
Dr. Wadeson says we need about 7-9 hours of sleep a night to function properly during the day.
Treat yourself every now and then.
Buy something online that you like. It doesn’t have to be food. It can be a new pair of shoes or some bath bombs (Bustle.com). Something that will encourage you to take care of yourself is a good idea.
