To inspire you to embrace more energy today, I wanted to share some of the things I have been trying in my own life…
Cut Out Coffee
I know we all love our daily fika (Swedish for tea or coffee-break) but that regular caffeine hit actually makes us more sluggish in the long run. I’ve been amazed to see the difference in my own energy levels that has come from switching to non-caffeinated herbal teas instead. I feel more balanced and calm each day. Why not challenge yourself to cut back or even cut out completely and see the difference yourself?
Every step we take is a little step towards improving our fitness. Walking is one of my favourite ways to exercise and I love looking for little ways to get outside and walk more. One thing myself and my team are doing is taking walking meetings. If you don’t need a computer screen, why not get outside and talk on the move? It’s a great way to boost creativity and innovation too.
Wake up early
It sometimes gets hard when I’m travelling as much as I have been lately but when I’m at home I love to wake up at 5am and enjoy my ‘holy hour’ alone. I drink warm lemon water, meditate, do yoga and write in my journal. Getting up early can actually improve your sleep patterns as you feel tired in the evenings and it’s easier to drift off to sleep. There’s nothing better than starting each day with positivity and having plenty of time to prepare for work and the day ahead.
Write in a journal
Our energy levels aren’t just a physical thing. Our minds and souls need re-charging too and writing in a journal is a wonderful way to do just that. I particularly love our new Exhausted To Energised Journal, which includes thought-provoking questions, activities and prompts to help you re-charge and refocus. Take just five minutes out of your day to embrace this nourishing habit and notice how little changes in your routine add up to a big difference in your life.
I hope these tips inspire you to make small changes for yourself and your wellbeing. It’s amazing how having more energy can help to achieve more in all areas of your life!
