4 Small Habits That Can Instantly Make You More Energetic and Productive
Everything we do on a daily basis affects our mental energy in some form or fashion. Deciding what to wear, what to eat, what route to take to work, and what order to return your calls in are just a few of the many forms of how our mental energy is used.
In a time where we’re pushing ourselves more than ever and constantly on the search for any type of competitive edge for success, many often forget to maximize their mental energy. Instead of searching externally for hacks and tactics, it’s vital to start internally when it comes to our mental energy.
For the longest of times, I paid very little attention to mental energy. With that said, it was no coincidence that I was overly-stressed and anxious often times when it came time to work.
As an entrepreneur, your mental energy is critical to your success in business because not only is your cognition affected but your emotions are attached as well which leads to your specific behaviors and habits on a daily basis.
When it comes to boosting your mental energy levels while lowering the amount of stress in your life, start with these four simple habits.
1. Audit yourself daily.
Without proper self-awareness of your life, installing new strategies is essentially shooting targets in the dark which leads to a low hit completion.
The easiest way to start the self-auditing process is to begin a daily mindfulness practice where you’ll take notice of when and what makes your energy head south. This allows you to take precise action on alleviating the energy drainers.
When I did this, one of my biggest drainers was the people I was associating with. I discovered that I was fairly sensitive to picking up on people’s energy which in my circumstance lead to negativity and decreased productivity.
With this knowledge in mind, I simply decreased my time around my negative environments. By no coincidence, my productivity skyrocketed.
Throughout your day, take periodic timeouts to assess your energy. If you feel off, review what’s occurred the last few hours as possible suspects to draining your energy. Continue to do this all day and then review at night to make adjustments.
2. Master your mornings.
Morning rituals are popular for good reason. They, combined with exercising for as little as ten minutes possess the power to supercharge your productivity and mood, which leads to a higher performing version of yourself.
One key way to master your mornings and generate energy is to wake up early and seek morning light out. This improves your sleep and helps provide energy to get your day going.
Waking up early and establishing an effective morning ritual doesn’t require any sort of complexity. In fact, 20 minutes of the right four habits can set the tone for your day.
3. Master your nights.
The quality of actions you take at night dictates the quality of your sleep, which ultimately plays a key role in your energy levels for the next day.
Prioritize getting quality sleep through limiting your exposure to blue light and going to bed at the same time each night. You’re probably ambitious, with a lot going on through the day–meaning sleep is sometimes difficult because you have so much on your mind.
As I’ve learned, when that’s the case, journaling to dump all of your excess mental baggage before bed will do wonders. Committing to something as simple as writing down five things you’re grateful for can help ease some potential tension.
4. Be precise with your actions.
Adopting this habit was tough for me. I love the act of achieving and marking things off a checklist.
The thing is, I learned that not all actions are created equal. The goal isn’t just to do a lot of random tasks. The goal is to execute with precision on a few essential tasks that move the needle forward in a big way.
Taking a bunch of random actions and hustling without purpose doesn’t lead to desirable results. It only leads to frustration, poor health, and lethargy.
Sometimes, it’s best to be contrarian and not do what everyone else is doing. In that case, slowing down, cutting the checklist in half, and taking breaks are just what you need to keep progressing forward. Working in a state of randomness is mentally exhausting. It leads to you spinning your wheels with nothing to show for your efforts.
Instead of attempting to conquer the world by doing everything, identify the three big rocks of the day that will move you forward the most and prioritize those. You only have a finite amount of energy each day, so use it wisely.Published on: Feb 28, 2018

Women with soda sitting out (even diet kinds) weighed an average of 24 to 26 pounds more. People who had a bowl of fruit in the kitchen weighed an average of 13 pounds less than those who didn’t have fruit out.

Today is my One Year Anniversary here. I remember discussing the details Christmas Eve last year. When I was first hired it was a major learning curve for me. I did not want to admit to anyone I was scared & nervous. Fear of Failing grasped my hand. I prevailed. I found Problems Are Just Hidden Opportunities and Success Is Achieved When You Keep Trying.
I have helped the company purchase properties in Roanoke, Richmond, Raleigh, Charlotte, and Tampa! I have been in $7,000 homes and $600,000 homes here. I have visited every neighborhood in Roanoke and I am proud to know the people and give them The Experience.
I thank Michael Cox and Malcolm K. Douglas for the opportunity and teaching me how to be a better Salesman.
There are two ways to sell your home with me. Here for cash, as is, close in 43 days or list it with me as I am a realtor with Keller Williams Roanoke.
One thing for sure is “The biggest room in the world is the room for improvement” and I am excited for what the future holds. Working On A Positive Mindset Brings Us Success.
“Man these cookies are good.” I thought to myself. I think I actually ate 10 of them. In fact please do not tell anyone but I also wrapped up 3 in a napkin and put them in my jacket pocket and unwrapped them carefully like jewelry I’d stolen from someone’s safe inside their home. They were precious to me and each bite I savored as my mouth watered like a dog craving water on a one hundred degree Summer day.
How do you make these cookies? I asked everyone at our annual family get together? Does anyone know? My Uncle Graham gave me the answer. He told me it was Stewart.
They say everything in life happens for a reason. There are a couple of things about Stewart. One: he appears to be the most successful man in the room and I wanted to speak with him and hand him my business card but how? Two: I was not sure if he was nice person. He seemed to be, I was a little nervous of rejection. Would he be nice? Would he treat me well?
I made the move… I sat down next to Stewart and found a compassionate man who I told that I was in love with his cookies. As Dale Carnegies says “speak to the other person’s interests not about you.” And told me how my mother gave him the recipe for the cookies years ago and he has tweaked it. He had made over 250 that weekend.
How do you make your cookies better? Here are my notes:
Use Land O’lakes Unsalted Butter
Do not let the butter boil in microwave as it will take water out to make cookies softer
Use real ginger
Roll in sugar
And the list goes on…
I handed him my business card and asked him to email the recipe. Now let’s get back to how That Everything In Life Happens For A Reason.. as I wanted to speak with him and tell him I am in real estate and if you need me or know anyone that does, please take my card. Now he has my card. It shows I am in real estate. Now when he emails me we can connect, have small talk, build our relationship, and I now have the golden jewel recipe to the best ginger cookies in world.
Moral of the story…
Remember that everything in life happens for a reason. It really does. Answers are coming to you from others by means of cookies when you least expect it. Do not judge a book by it’s cover as people who appear to be one way are usually the exact opposite. Last but not least, If you ask for the cookie recipe, your chances increase of getting the love, giving the love, and getting the sale.
