Problems managing your energy?

10 tips on how to manage your energy:

1. Unlax
Unwind, relax, plan ahead

2. Shift your energy as required
Vary your energy patterns — shift up when your energy level is down and shift down when it is up.

3. Think and be positive
Both raise your energy level and help with stress management.

4. Keep cool
No, not you — when and where you are working or playing should be conducive to the activities you are undertaking.

5. Pace and space
Ensure that you have enough time to undertake/complete your tasks, that they are manageable, and that you have time to pursue restful activities in between tasks.

6. Breathe easy
Deep breathing exercises have been shown to have a number of benefits — including reducing blood pressure.

7. Eliminate the unnecessary
There are enough important things to do in our lives without doing things we don't need to do.

8. Balance your energy
Use it wisely and, no, that does not mean that you have to move at a snail's pace all the time.

9. Conserve your energy
For those times when you need it.

10. Time has limits
But your energy can be replenished and can help ensure that you get things done efficiently and effectively.
