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.
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.
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.
