Give Yourself An Energy Boost

by Apr 14, 2020

As we continue to navigate these unprecedented circumstances, it’s important to keep your body and mind in tip-top shape while working from home. We may not be personal trainers, but we have collected some surefire ways to give yourself an energy boost. That way you can keep going strong throughout your workday–and beyond! Check out what the pros have to say below about the best ways to keep your energy up.

 

We love this quick and easy step from Alexis Wolfer at Business Insider: “Drink water. When glued to your desk, it can be hard to remember to drink enough water — and even harder to tell when you’re showing the early signs of dehydration. But when your energy is low, opt for a big glass of H2O instead of a refill on your cup of Joe and you’ll feel instantly energized (without the risk of an impending caffeine crash).” Fun fact: 71% of planet Earth is made up of water. And, at about 60%, the average human is largely composed of H2O, too! Keep your ship sailing amidst stormy seas: keep drinking water. While you’re at it, remind your colleagues to keep hydrating as well.

 

Now that you’re hydrated, make sure you’re properly fueling yourself! Ashley Stahl at Forbes has just the suggestion for the best way to power up: “Eat smarter. First things first. Don’t skip breakfast! Have a small meal at the very least to get your metabolism going. Then, throughout the day, practice mindful eating and listen to your body. If you need a snack, keep it well-balanced to avoid a mid-afternoon crash. Try something with equal protein and carbs to avoid blood sugar spikes (and drops).” Get your workday off to a great start by eating breakfast. Then make sure to keep your brain and body fueled as you continue to work throughout the day! This also serves as another great opportunity to connect with your co-workers while also taking on a leadership role–remind your colleagues to keep eating! You can also share your favorite recipes, further fostering a sense of community in any professional environment. 

Follow these tips and you’re sure to keep your energy up amidst any stormy circumstances. As our founder and CEO Donna Fitzgerald says, “While it may feel like we’re in limbo, we’re in limbo together.” Speaking of limbo–switching it up from our cat content, you won’t want to miss this short and sweet video of adorable dogs playing limbo. Another great way to give yourself an energy boost is to take a moment to laugh and have some fun. These are difficult times, so do make sure you’re recharging in whatever ways you can. We’ll see you back here tomorrow for our Wednesday Wellness: Weathering the Storm edition.
