Tips for maintaining Energy Levels
Comments (0)

Many of us find that our energy levels vary during the day – and with them goes our confidence, our ability to learn new things, keep our temper etc. You can help maintain a productive energy level by following some of these tips.

• Drink plenty of water – keep a big bottle of mineral water (or tap water in a mineral water bottle) on your desk and aim to drink a glass every hour

• Avoid a big lunch, even if someone else is buying

• Eat small amounts regularly, even an apple or a flapjack eaten at your desk in between meals will help to keep you going

• Aim to eat 5-6 small meals each day, rather than 2 or 3 big meals.

• Some people recommend eating early in the evening, rather than 2 or 3 hours before you go to bed

• If you can’t face breakfast, eat a yoghurt or some fruit first thing, and then have something more substantial when you get into the office to keep you going through the day

• Generally avoid stimulants – caffeine, nicotine, sugar. All push your blood sugar levels up temporarily, but you feel more tired and irritable afterwards

• Allow yourself a coffee occasionally if you have a big push on to get something done

• Do some exercise – even walking around the office will help get the blood flowing, especially if you sit at your desk for most of the time

• Have a laugh – if you’re feeling low or down, remember something funny or make yourself do something silly.
