When do you feel Energized? Analyze yourself and your daily routine.

What is the meaning of being Energetic?

It is the state of the body with a high level of capacity. We perform any activity vigorously or tirelessly. It is a situation when our body and mind are coordinated. It is one of the happiest occasions. We feel enormously enthusiastic.

When do we feel energy loss?

Consider the various things that drain energy such as

  • Whenever we hear a depressing news
  • During a condolence
  • During sickness
  • After consuming a heavy meal
  • After a heated argument at the place of work
  • Losing a job

It is the state when your energy level has reached an all-time low. You normally tend to become very sluggish. Any activity that you take up during this situation takes you very long to be completed. It may be a simple activity but dragged beyond its expected time. At last, the work performed inefficiently. The output is dissatisfying.

Such situations are unavoidable. It all depends on how we take them. We need to take things, as it is. They are a part of the good things in life. You may also consider that such situations tend to make you stronger. They make you stronger enough to face the even worse situation. Another way of dealing such situation is to think positive. You can give yourself a positive stroke. If you are in a position to convert the negative into positive then it is nothing like that. You are sure to tide over these difficulties with ease. Let me narrate an incidence. “I had to quit my job two months ago even though I was placed in a well paying and a satisfying, responsible position. The reason for this decision was due to an intense argument with the superiors that led to an unpleasant situation in the company. I did feel a bit depressed in the beginning. Later, I took this opportunity to join a practical course in Yoga and deeply concentrated in it. I also tuned my mind telling me that if I had not taken this break undergoing a beneficial course like this one would not have occurred.”

What makes you feel Energetic?

Brainstorm yourself and list out your energizers. Below are some energizers. Check whether you too have these.

  •  Exercise / Outdoor games / Yoga
  • Listening to an inspiring CD
  • Listening to your favorite music and dreaming as if you are one of the participants in the concert.
  • Meditation
  • Resolve some issues that were kept pending

Likewise, you can list umpteen numbers of situations. Once done include them in your daily routine to optimize your power. Be conscious of yourself and keep a watch of all the instances that change your attitude. Observe your moods and the output of all the activities. It is very essential to pat yourself the moment you have done something which you feel extraordinary.

Some useful tips to keep you energized.

1. Adore your work:

All of us spend a lot of time at work. Start accounting the time leaving from home and reaching back. Statistics says that on an average 40% to 50% of the time in a day spent by a working individual. This is quite a lot. You have occupied this portion of time to work for someone. Your superiors force you to lead a different lifestyle. Therefore, it becomes essential that you find quickly a solution to overcome the boredom. As explained earlier, be fully conscious of your attitudinal changes at work. The best way is to question you.

These questions should not be consistently negative. This can lead to losing your energies. Question your mind with continuous positive, productive, and encouraging thoughts. Like:-

  • What urged you to choose the existing profession?
  • What are the salient features of the job that makes it interesting to you?
  • Think of someone who is a performer and whom you have chosen as your role model. You will get automatically attracted.
  • Keep tracking your record of accomplishment. Monitor every activity. Create career goals and evolve the distance to travel to reach them
2. Change your behavior like an innocent kid:

Think back your childhood days. Did you ever face a stressful life? You were unaware of risks and took life carefree. Your enormous energy helped you happily running from interest to another. As you grow older, you were conscious of the surroundings and limited your thoughts and actions.

It is better you learn from kids, and you may be in a position to restore the lost energies. Carefully observe their innocence and try to be one with them.

3. Prepare a High-energy daily program:

Prepare a daily plan of activities that help you to maintain a consistent energy level. Firstly, you need a proper eight hours sleep. It should be free and sound without any disturbance. You have to get up fresh. Dream yourself as if you are at the peak of the world. Avoid all arguments. Gaze at any poster in front of you, which charges yourself with powerful motivation. Prepare for a stretching exercise coupled by a long walk and followed by light jogging. Jogging helps you to be active throughout the day hence your energy maintained. If you are traveling a long distance, ensure that you are ahead of time. When you reach your workplace, prepare a plan of activities to accomplish.

You need to be very careful with instances that let your energy low. Since these are unavoidable prepare you with a break to relieve yourself from the mental fatigue. Take deep breaths in between. This will allow higher intake of oxygen. At the end of the day, compare your plan versus actual activities accomplished. Check your status. Pay more attention to the activities not accomplished and identify the reason for not achieving. Plan counter measures to avoid. Roughly, plan the next day’s plan immediately.

On your return, back focus on yourself to plan the evening with your family. You need to be very free and not remember instances that disturbed you at the workplace. Preferably, a quick evening shopping before reaching home is ideal. This should help you physically separate you from the disturbances at the workplace. You can ask your spouse to meet you at a place so that she can join you on your way back home. At home, get engrossed in the family affairs.

Taking risk should be a part of your life. Not taking risk is a hazard. In fact, the difficulties faced making you stronger to take much higher risks. A person taking risk is free in life. Risks should be calculative
