How to quickly restore energy level
I need your advice on energy management. GTD is great tool to track projects and actions when you have enough energy :p I loved what I do but started to mention that I have low energy when I leave my office. I believe that's what everybody experience. Or maybe not everyone? I need your advice on how to quickly restore the energy levels so I could play with kids after work and do other stuff at home. It could be your personal tips and tricks or just books recommendations. Let's help each other to quickly restore our energy levels!
I second eating something!
But then I need to eat every two to three hours or I'm really a mess.
Also, make sure you are getting enough sleep and exercise. It is amazing how these three things (food, sleep, exercise) work together to lift you up and fill you with energy or spiral you down into lethargy. So choose one you think you need to/can work on and try to instill a new habit.
You may also need to consider the type of person you are and the type of work you do. For example, I need alone time. Constantly being around people drains my energy and I need "me-time" to replenish. Apparently some people are the opposite - needing to socialize to get energized. Depending on what you've been doing all day and what gives you energy, you may want to choose some afternoon/evening activities that are the opposite to get you fired up again.
The Energy Project works...
