Managing your Energy

Source: Management Tips – Harvard Business Review
As organizations demand more and more from their people, time-pressed employees have to scramble to keep up. You may not be able to make the day any longer, but you can replenish your energy. Use these 4 simple ways to help you work smarter and prevent burnout:

  • Take brief but regular breaks. Step away from your desk every 90 to 120 minutes. Take a walk, get a drink, or just stretch your legs.
  • Say thank you. Being Positive boosts your energy level. Regularly express appreciation to others.
  • Reduce interruptions. Perform tasks that need concentration away from phones and e-mail. Instead, designate specific times in your day to respond to messages.
  • Do what you love. Understand where your strengths lie and what you enjoy doing. Find ways to do more of those things and less of what tires you out.
