Habits to Increase Your Energy - Deepstash
Habits define your energy levels

Tine is not the basis for productivity. Energy is.

Having all the time in the world won’t help you if you’re exhausted for most of it. Having good habits help in keeping you energized and be more resilient to burn out, both physically and mentally.

Even if it may feel lazy, napping has a range of cognitive benefits.

Energy levels depend a lot on your mood. If you’ve got some important work done, your mood is usually good and you feel productive.

If you’ve wasted time on emails, meetings or calls, you’re often frustrated and exhausted entering the second half of the day.

Exercise every day

Exercise is a long-term investment in your energy levels. 

It’s easy to cut in the short-term, but over time you’ll reduce your overall fitness, making it harder to focus and stay alert throughout the day.

Get better friends

If your conversations with your friends leave you feeling drained, then maybe it's time to make some changes.

You don't have to exclude friends who are going through temporarily rough times, but assess your relationships and be aware of who you spend your time with and the value this really brings to your life.

Read better books

The best books aren’t those that teach you facts, but those that subtly change your entire thinking patterns.

Just like a good song can be the background for a particular emotion, a good book can be the background for a particular energy of thinking.
