5 Ways to Energize Yourself

Video Transcript

Natural light and a healthy diet can give you a much-needed boost.

Do you ever find your energy levels plummeting at work? If you're lacking the power to get your job done, use these five tips to recharge your batteries!

  1. Look at what you eat and drink. Do you drink enough water? Or rely on sugary snacks for a boost? Slow energy-releasing foods will sustain you for longer and prevent sugar crashes.
  2. Listen to music. Refocus your mind with your favorite music. Choose tracks that elevate your mood and energize you.
  3. Get some fresh air. A short walk can clear a foggy head. But, for lasting impact, exercise regularly to boost your energy and fitness.
  4. Mix up your day. Boring or mundane tasks can drain your energy. Re-examine the purpose of these "energy vampires." Are they really necessary? Could you delegate them to someone who enjoys them?
  5. Use light. Energize yourself with natural light by sitting near a window. Or, if possible, work outside!
