Long days are to be expected especially in the lives of entrepreneurs and designers. Sometimes, it is no longer the number of hours, but rather a deadline that dictates how long you are going to work on a project or a task. Keeping your energy up during these longer days is not an easy job, this is why I am sharing with you today 5 tactics that will help you stay motivated and energetic while going through a hectic business day:
- Stay Hydrated:
Yes, water is THAT important because it keeps your electrolytes balanced, hence your energy levels stable throughout the day.
- Eat Proteins:
Eating proteins will distribute your energy evenly throughout the hours, while eating carbs will give you sudden spikes and downs in both your energy and your mood.
- Take Small Breaks Frequently:
Taking small breaks every one or two hours is very important to keep you from boredom.
- Don’t Stay Alone:
Work with focused company or talk to a friend every now and then to stay entertained and get boosts of motivation and positive energy.
- Work on Different Tasks:
Changing the tasks you’re working on frequently will keep you on your toes, so try alternating in your coverage of what you’re doing frequently.
