”The time to relax is when you don’t have time for it.”
Sydney J. Harris
We are human and we don’t have an endless supply of energy. It helps to think of yourself as a battery that needs to be recharged throughout the day. Most people hit their peak energy output about two hours after they wake up, and it lasts for about four hours. Then their energy plummets, especially after lunch.
You have probably gone through an afternoon slump more times than you can count. This is when most people go for a caffeine or sugar boost, which is not healthy…..So what is a good alternative?
Schedule short recharge breaks to help you keep a more consistent energy level, and will also help you avoid unhealthy snacking.
Try scheduling your breaks when you know the energy slumps usually hit. You might have a walk and a healthy fruit snack, and take the time to breathe and regroup for 10 minutes before you get back to what you need to do.
Remember when we relax, refresh and recharge, we set our self up for greater productivity.
