Balancing Workplace Energy Replenishment Tactics

by Sep 10, 2020

Today we’re bringing you scientifically proven actions you can take to swiftly boost your mood and replenish your energy. These activities that you can do anywhere and anytime will ensure you’re at your best throughout the day rather than only being productive in spurts. Sticking to these methods is key! You’ll be able to maintain a positive attitude, which will help you resolve any workplace conflicts or tackle any professional tasks with ease. For details on key, research-based methods to replenish your energy, read on for some major insights.

 

We love this quick and easy method from the pros at Harvard Health Publishing’s Healthbeat: “Drink water. What’s the only nutrient that has been shown to enhance performance for all but the most demanding endurance activities? It’s not some pricey sports drink. It’s water. If your body is short of fluids, one of the first signs is a feeling of fatigue.” Our favorite tip for any reason in any season? Stay hydrated! So when it comes to restoring your energy, make doubly certain you’re keeping sufficient H2O in your system. Not drinking enough water can cause headaches and dizziness–and both are conditions that could accidentally distract you, leading to poor work performance. Make sure you’re regularly utilizing this tip to keep your productivity and your workplace demeanor at their best. 

 

Emma Seppalla at Total Brain provides a great approach that you can achieve on your own in order to contribute optimally to your professional community: “Practice Gratitude. Research has shown that feeling grateful helps you replenish your energy in the face of fatiguing tasks. Let’s say you don’t like your job. Regardless, there are always things that warrant being grateful: You have a job when many others don’t. The reason gratitude has such a replensing effect is that feeling grateful both increases positive emotion and helps you see the big picture.” Context is key. Just as you need to consider how your own, individual role is a part of your organization as a whole, the company you work for doesn’t exist in a vacuum. Be certain to not make any snap judgments, and to not engage in rash behavior as a result of how those judgments can color your perception–instead, take a moment to reflect on the big picture. This also entails considering your individual circumstances amidst the world beyond your organization’s borders. Finding the silver linings and reframing your situation in a positive light has been proven to boost your energy, so use that fact to your advantage!

 

We love the way these tips balance out body and mind to provide a holistic approach to restoring your energy at work. That combination is key to bringing your whole self to each professional task set before you, and letting skills and attributes that are your forte really stand out. And you’ll want to make sure that maintaining a sense of positivity is one of those strengths. Staying properly hydrated and frequently practicing gratitude are major steps that you can take to ensure your professional energy is regularly replenished. Check back again tomorrow as we finish out the week with our newest Feel Good Friday: Replenish edition.
