It’s 2pm, you’re feeling that afternoon slump and can’t seem to be able to concentrate on work. Or you’ve worked a long week and just can’t seem to muster up the stamina to perform at your best. You feel tired, unmotivated and unproductive. Most of us have these kinds of experiences at some point. Yet the only way that we hear about to ‘boost our energy’ is to drink caffeine or to get our adrenaline pumping by waiting until the last minute to finish a work project. In both cases, we’re taxing our nervous system with uneccessary jitters and stress (which soon thereafter will end in another crash). Because I see how many people struggle with energy management, I devoted a whole section in my new book The Happiness Track to the science of it. Here are a few key points on how to restore your mental energy at work without taxing your body.
If you order The Happiness Track before January 26th, 2016, you receive 5 wonderful gifts I’ve put together with some of my partners, see here for details.
