Energy is that force that helps us to act on a daily basis, to perform all kinds of tasks and also to interact with others. You may not be aware of it, but it takes a lot of energy to listen to colleagues, friends or family, to get in tune with them. This explains the fatigue or irritation we may feel during the day.
Here are 3 exercises to learn how to use energy in an optimal way:
Determine your biorhythm
The biorhythm is the combination of biological factors and the rhythm of life. It varies according to individuals. As it is a subjective assessment, it is therefore up to each individual to determine it. To do this, you can use a table of energy levels. Take a particular day, write down on a piece of paper your activities in the morning, in the morning, in the afternoon, at the end of the working day and in the evening. Next to it, write down the time you did all these actions and your energy level. The scale is from 1 to 5, with 1 being very low and 5 being very high. This exercise is used to establish whether you are morning or evening. Next, analyse the activities to which you have given a score of 1.
*** See how you can change the organization of your day to optimize your energy level. You can reserve the tasks that require the most attention for when your energy reserves are at their maximum.
Take breathing breaks
A well-functioning brain is a well-oxygenated brain! When you are focused on a task, your neurons consume a lot of energy. So remember to take regular breaks and take advantage of them to breathe fresh air. This will only make you more efficient.
*** There are breathing techniques to help you relax quickly, which is useful in times of stress: breathe in deeply through your nose by inflating the abdominal part and without inflating your chest, then breathe out as much air as possible through your mouth by contracting the abdominal strap. Continue until you feel relaxed.
Set short-term goals
To start each day off on the right foot, set short-term goals. Even if you have a large-scale, global project, congratulate yourself every day on how far you’ve come. This will motivate you to continue your efforts over the long term.
*** You can also keep a “gratitude notebook” in which you record your victories and successes.
Now it’s your turn!
