Life moves at breakneck speed, stress is a constant part of our life, deadlines and goals are present at all times. And to add more, for a good part of the population, the work is now at home, we start earlier, often by lunching, we work while eating, we make an armful between two videoconferences.
I can guess the stress and fatigue at the end of the day, and the end of the week. If I told you that it is possible to have more energy at work, to be more efficient, and more rested, and more creative Do better, and in less times?
Here are 11 tips to make your days more energetic:
Get a good nights sleep
These days, getting little sleep, getting up as early as possible to accomplish the most in a day is quite a trend. Yet we all need sleep and rest to be functional. An adult would need a minimum of 7 hours of good sleep to be in good shape.
So, maybe extend your nights by an hour or two if your nights are too short, you will see, your concentration will be much better!
Organize your days with time slots
Organization is often the key and it is essential to make time for yourself. Schedule hours to work hard, breaks, your meal times, time for exercise, time to get some fresh air over dinner time, and IMPORTANT: time to have fun!
If you are working all the time and don't take the time to stop, the brain becomes exhausted. He needs breaks! So, yes, take some time for yourself. When it's time to get back to work, you'll see your energy boosted, and your creativity too! The subconscious mind manages your tasks during breaks, and will help you find solutions. This will help your tasks get done much more efficiently and quickly.
Take a vacation
If you have the chance, try to take 1 week vacation per season!
Oh! It would therefore be interesting if it was prescribed to us! But, if the opportunity presents itself, jump at the chance! Dropping out (for real!) Will allow you to refuel and focus better on your return.
Pick up, a little every day, and every day off
Here I hear entrepreneurs say: An entrepreneur really never stops. Much of the truth, entrepreneurship is a part of our lives. An email here, a message there, etc. A good mental load that remains present almost all the time. Still, it's important to make a cut. A worker who actually manages to quit a little bit every day is happier and more productive!
Have a good lunch!
Your mothers told you that the morning meal is the most important Well, she was right! Lunch gives us the fuel to start our day on the right foot. Eggs, fruit, nuts, a good granola on yogurt, cheese, a slice of whole grain bread, etc. All good things to support you well, and not to run out of energy. We avoid the big sweet and very fatty breakfast.
And the coffee 1 good coffee in the morning hummmm what better As noted in the article:e : Energy, concentration, avoiding a slump: the best ways to prepare your morning coffee, there is the possibility of pimping your coffee, in order to eliminate the sudden push that often follows.t.

Plan meals in advance (you can refer to the article:« Sunday Meal Prep for Healthy Eatingt , or the solution ofIsabelle Huot's ChopChop Meal Planner) is a great way to reduce mental stress during the week. No more worry about meal time will be one less distraction during the day.
You will understand: the goal is to eliminate external sources of stress and distractions, to be more productive and creative!

Eating a healthy, balanced diet will give you the energy you need to get through your workday - much more than eating a non-nourishing meal.
