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 while at work? If you're lacking the power to get your job done, try these five tips to give yourself a boost!

  1. Look at what you eat and drink. Do you drink enough water? Or rely on sugary snacks for a boost? Swapping sweets for healthy treats will help to keep your energy levels up all day long!
  2. Listen to music. Keep distractions at bay by playing music. Choose tracks that elevate your mood and energize you.
  3. Get some fresh air. An occasional 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 next to the window. Or, if possible, work outside!
