How to Reenergize Yourself

Career Advice

We focus a lot of managing our time, but what about managing our energy? It’s no secret that you’re more productive during certain parts of the day. And that burning the wick at both ends affects your productivity–and your happiness. Here are a few ways you can manage your energy during the work week, and use your energy to your advantage:

  • Pay attention: When are you naturally most productive? If the answer is early in the morning, schedule your most important task for the day at that time. Save email checking or meetings for later in the day.
  • Get up earlier: This may sound counterintuitive at first. But having plenty of time in the morning can lead to a more restful day. An earlier wake up call might mean you have time to do something majorly beneficial such as working out, eating a healthy breakfast, making a lunch to-go, or spending some time with your family.
  • Reassess your (negative) habits: If you’re feeling burned out at the end of each day, get down to the root of the problem and make a change. Do you stay up too late watching TV? Do you depend too heavily on caffeine? Do you eat an unhealthy lunch or sugary snacks every afternoon?

These small changes can not only make you feel better, but can make you more productive. That means more time do the things you love, which is energizing in itself. And who doesn’t want that?
