Manage Your Energy, Not Your Time

To stay productive at work , it is not only important to effectively manage time but it is also equally critical to manage your energy.

Try these practices to renew the four dimensions of your personal energy:

Physical Energy

Enhance your sleep by setting an earlier bedtime and reducing intake of junk food and alcohol.

Eat small meals and light snacks every three hours

Take brief but regular breaks away from your desk at 90- to 120-minute intervals throughout the day

Learn to notice signs of imminent flagging energy,including restlessness, yawning, hunger, and difficulty concentrating

Emotional Energy

Fuel positive emotions in yourself and others by regularly expressing appreciation to people in detailed, specific terms through notes, e-mails, calls,or conversations

Defuse negative emotions—irritability, impatience,anxiety, insecurity—through deep abdominal breathing.

Look at unfavorable situations through new perspective

Mental Energy

Reduce interruptions by performing high concentration tasks away from phones and e-mail

Respond to voice mails and e-mails at regular intervals during the day

Select the most important challenge for the next day the night before. Then make that challenge your first priority when you arrive at work in the morning

Spiritual Energy

Identify your “favourite” activities—those that give you feelings of effectiveness and fulfillment

Renew Your Energy

Allocate time and energy to what you consider most important

Live your core values
