Want to Keep It Together at Work? Start Your Day Like This.

  • Morning Energy

“I am so tired. I can’t even think about getting up and brushing my teeth, let alone going to work.”

 

We all say this to ourselves once a while when the alarm goes off. But if you say it every day, you need an energy makeover. Here are some tips to help get you going and keep you sailing through the work day with ease.

 

Wake Up Your Body.

If you’re the type of person who’s organized and energetic enough to get up early and go for a run, you’re not reading this anyway. For the rest of us, a one-minute, all-over stretch followed by shaking out your arms and legs is a more realistic option to energize muscles and release stiffness. You don’t even have to get out of bed to do it.

 

Change Your Self-Talk.

Remember that “I’m so tired” thinking we mentioned? It can be more of a self-fulfilling prophecy than you realize. Try starting every day with a positive thought such as, “I’m full of energy to master whatever challenges the day brings.” It doesn’t matter if you don’t believe a word you’re telling yourself. Say it anyway, and pretty soon it will start coming true.

 

Have an Energy Boosting (not Draining) Breakfast.

You aren’t doing yourself any favors if your typical breakfast is high in sugar and refined carbs. Sure, it’ll give you a rush for an hour or two, but then you’ll crash. Usually right when your job — and boss — are at their most demanding. An energy boosting breakfast should contain:

Lean protein: egg whites, turkey bacon, low fat yogurt

Unrefined carbohydrates: whole grain toast, granola, oatmeal

Fiber: Fruits, vegetables, nuts, beans

 

Wake Up Your Mind.

Watching the morning news, checking your email the minute you get out of bed and listening to talk radio during your commute can all exhaust your mental energy before you even get to work. Instead, listen to music or a motivational audio. You can also expand on #2 above: Go over your life goals and how your actions today are going to take you another step closer to achieving them.

 

These 4 morning habits should get you stoked — body and mind — with energy to succeed on the job … with plenty left over for fun on your own time. Give them a try, and let us know how they work for you!

AI in HR: Facilitating Flexible Scheduling
In our new study "Artificial Intelligence for Recruiting Success," we discussed ways that new technology can save us time and effort while attracting a better pool of job candidates. In this article, we'll turn our attention to a tool that helps provide one of candidates' most desired job benefits, while requiring minimal time and effort on our part.   Work-life balance and the flexible schedule appear to be here to stay. Surveys show that 77% of Millennials1 and 51% of Generation Z2 prefer flexible working hours. In fact, some experts predict that the traditional 9-to-5 job will be pretty much dead by 20303.   The good news for businesses is that giving employees flexibility does increase morale, overall work hours and productivity;4 and if most employees telecommute, it reduces the need for expensive corporate office space. The bad news is that it can be a logistical nightmare. That's where artificial intelligence comes in.   Here are some types of software5 you may...
