There is a large body of knowledge on improving productivity with better time management. There is another component of time management that is just as important – energy management.
What is the point of freeing up time if you’re not energized to get your work done?
What you really need is more time combined with sufficient mental energy to act. Improving your mental energy starts with these basic steps:
- healthy diet
- quality sleep
More energy = better time management
If you can ‘recharge your batteries’ with a long walk, a healthy meal or an afternoon nap, you are better prepared to practice time management skills.
