Maintain Your Energy Throughout The Day
This month we are discussing energy and vitality. We appreciate that keeping your energy levels up throughout the day can sometimes be a real challenge and our topic today is intended to help you maintain your energy throughout the day with 4 simple tips.
You started the day ready to take on the world. From the moment you got out of bed, you’ve been thinking about all the things you’re going to get done today. You can’t wait to get started!
Then it all falls apart. Sound familiar?
By the end of the day, you're grumpy and out of sorts. The day somehow derailed, and here you are, feeling like you didn't accomplish half the things you wanted to do today. What happened?
Well, sometimes life really does get in the way. The car won’t start, or the dog gets out, and you spend half the morning chasing him around the neighbourhood. Life gets in the way. More often than not, though, you likely did what most people do: you crashed and burned. Somewhere ...you just ran out of energy.
So, how do you maintain your energy levels even on the toughest of days?
Check-in With Yourself
First of all, you must begin paying attention to your body a little bit more. If you become aware of yourself right when your energy begins to waver, you might be able to stave off a massive crash later on. Frequently when we're lagging, it's because we need something small, like hydration, a little good movement, or even a small healthy snack.
Do you know that most people reach for the snacks first because they think they are hungry when in fact they are thirsty? It is suggested to have a glass of WATER and wait twenty minutes and if you still feel hungry after the twenty minutes go ahead and have a healthy snack.
These are quick and easy options that only take a minute. Ignore them, though, and you're libel to lose hours out of your day before you know it.

Engage in a Routine (or Two)
We tend to burn out energy because we’re scrambling to sort out our day and find the things we need. If you have a morning routine, for example, you’ll have everything near at hand right when you need it.
Getting out of the door will take half the energy, giving you reserves for where you need it most. Ask yourself what parts of your day you can streamline by creating a routine and make sure to follow through with those routines as often as possible. Generally, a good morning routine begins with a good evening routine.

Become More Intentional
Too often, our day becomes filled with little nonsense tasks which take up energy and time. Really, what is it you need to do? What actions will leave the biggest impact on the day?
Put your energy where it counts most by being more intentional in what you're doing. Remember, you don't have to be the one to do everything. Delegate the non-essential items to keep yourself focused on what matters.
Get to Bed!
Sleep is the forgotten pillar of wellness today. So many people seem to wear exhaustion as a badge of honour. I've heard it said that if people just got more sleep many of today's lifestyle illnesses would simply disappear. This is how vital sleep is for our energy, vitality and good health.
While a bedtime routine is a great start, pay more attention to your sleep. Create a sleep environment that is free from noise and distraction. Make sure your room is at an optimal temperature, and yes, if need be, invest in a better mattress or new pillows.
Getting a good night's sleep will keep you more energetic throughout the day. We wrote about how to make good habit changes to shift to a healthy lifestyle for you here:
