5 Ways to Increase Your Energy Working from Home
Right now, with things as they are, more and more people find themselves working remotely from home, and consequently, some people are struggling to adjust to their new working lives.
For some people, working from home is an enticing prospect, as after all, you don’t need to worry about your boss looking over your shoulder, you don’t need to travel to and from the office, and you can even work in your PJs in front of the TV.
As great as that sounds on paper, in reality, adjusting to this new way of working can severely hinder your productivity levels and as a result, your work may suffer. To make matters worse, we often find ourselves struggling to find the physical and mental energy needed to knuckle down and get some work done.
If you’re struggling to find the energy required to work from home, try these handy tips.
1. Put down the coffee
First and foremost, one of the most important things you need to do when it comes to increasing your energy levels is to put down the coffee and stop relying on caffeine as a pick-me-up.
When people are tired, they’ll often reach for the coffee because of its high caffeine content, but caffeine only provides a temporary increase in energy. Once it wears off, you experience a “crash” which causes you to feel more tired than before.
Caffeine is not the solution to a lack of energy, it simply provides a short-term fix that ultimately makes things worse.
2. Eat breakfast
Right now, if you are working from home, you literally have no excuse whatsoever for not eating breakfast.
You can literally get out of bed, walk into the kitchen, make breakfast, and then begin the working day if you wish, so be sure to make use of this additional time you have on your hands, and be sure to eat breakfast.
Breakfast is known as the most important meal of the day because it’s the first thing you’ll have eaten in at least 9 hours, if not longer. Breakfast will give you a boost of energy from the calories it contains, and it will help to fire up your metabolism and get it running on all cylinders for the day ahead.
3. Try healthy fats
If you want an energy-rich breakfast, you could do far worse than starting off with a breakfast enriched with healthy fats.
Healthy fats, including MCT oils, coconut oil, avocado, eggs, and oily fish, are metabolized much quicker than other macros when consumed individually, which means that the fats provide an instant boost of energy that will help get your body and mind in the zone, and help energize you before you knuckle down to get some work done.
4. Get into a healthy sleeping pattern
When working from home, the temptation is always there to go to bed later because you can technically wake up later because you don’t need to get ready for work or travel to the office
However. This is not something we would recommend as a disrupted sleeping pattern can drain your mental and physical energy levels, which will in turn harm your productivity.
Instead, aim to go to sleep before 12, and ideally get 7 – 8 hours a night.
If you’re lacking sleep, you’ll lack physical and mental energy, which is the last thing you want when working from home.
