5 Things That Can Zap Your Energy & How To Avoid Them


Quote of the day: 
What makes the desert beautiful is that somewhere it hides a well. 
-Antoine de Saint-Exupery


Our energy levels fluctuate on a daily basis. A high Keeping a vibrant and positive energy can be a hard task, especially if you consider negative external or internal factors that may contribute to how you feel at any given time.

A good way is to identify energy zapping factors and work around reducing or even eliminating them one after the other. I have compiled a list of my energy zappers and decided to share below.

1. Stress
Life is a constant web filled with varying degrees of events and choices. At times things can get pretty overwhelming when we try to juggle too many things at a time. Its okay to take a break, to cut off the unnecessary things and focus on things that really matter. Going back to the things that make you happy is important.

2. Worrying
I have found that worrying too much about stuff does little to solve things. It not only clogs my mind, but it also makes concentrating on other matters difficult. It is an energy drainer, and can be linked to other energy zappers on this list.

3. Lack of proper sleep
Sleep is necessary for rejuvenation. Not having enough sleep can take a toll on the body and mind. And this could translate into other areas, leading to greater complications. Anything can keep you awake; stress, noise, insomnia, illness and so on. A good thing is to plan to sleep early enough, and resist anything that could interfere with your sleeping pattern.

4. Negative People
The people we surround ourselves with matter a lot. In the case of negative people, their actions can often lead to bad impressions- and that's not a very good one. It can leave us feeling drained to even be around them. The way forward is to try as much as possible to keep contact with them to a minimum.

5. Dehydration/Poor Diet:
Not drinking enough water and staying hydrated can lead to fatigue and dehydration. For me, sometimes not eating at the right time can lead to headaches or worse migraines. The ideal solution is to drink plenty of water during the day, and develop a good diet. Exercise, also helps.


There are loads of other energy zappers, the key is to identify them in order to minimize their occurrence. I hope this helps.

  4. I was wiped out yesterday and it was a total lack of sleep from the night before. Circumstances and challenges kept me up way late. I feel like a new man today after getting 9 hours of sleep last night.

    Worrying is def a drag. So much of it is about things that we have little or no control. Procrastination leads to worry too so we need to organize our lives in a way that we can get done what we need to get done to cut down on our stress and worry.

  6. These are so important and I have definitely experienced all of them. I think the negative people is the one that surprised me most when I realized how much it was affecting me, only after I stepped away from those situations and made up my mind to be less involved.

  10. Thanks for sharing. Along with lack of exercise another energy zapper is not getting enough fresh air. An early morning run or brisk walk is rejuvenating.

  11. The first 3 zappers get to me sometimes. In fact, sequentially...I get stressed out, I start worrying so much about the issue stressing me and then I don't get enough sleep as a result. But i've learned there's more to life than all that.

    Great tips!!!!

  13. That's an uplifting quote. I feel like it goes in hand with one of your energy zappers, stress...actually, worrying, too. Often times when I'm stressed it feels like there's no way out...but yes, there is always some sort of relief to come... like a well in a desert.

    Hope you're having a good week!

  15. You certainly hit on the big ones, Blogoratti! I would also add lack of exercise and overcommitment. Thanks for writing about such an important subject. I was guilty of all of them, but I am doing somewhat better now that I'm retired. Still short of time! LOL! Have a good one!

  31. All the things you have listed affects everyone at some point. I don't sleep all that much. If I get 5 hours then I'm doing well. That's just me. Stress would be my biggest enemy. Fortunately in the last couple of years that has lessened as I no longer work full time. I am enjoying my life much more and appreciating what I have whether it's my relationship, family and friends. I am a lucky guy.

  37. You're right about worry linking to other reasons. Once upon a time my anxiety level was worrying, until I learned to control it. These days I remind myself to worry tomorrow! You would be surprised by the wisdom of it because the next day the thing we worry about never seems as bad.

    __Those negative people; they, who so often spew derogatory remarks generated by their own "jealousy," and those remarks should well be considered "complements" by those that were insulted.

  62. Thanks for sharing this. I have been using some of these tips and I feel energized. I found your tip on stress useful. Sometimes, we just feel stressed over certain things. At such times, I recommend you stop and reflect on the project and see how best to proceed. Some projects are better left undone. But, if you must do it, find ways to proceed without feeling stressed.
