How can I stay Energised and Focused when I’m Busy and Stressed?

How can I stay Energised and Focused when I’m Busy and Stressed?

 

Tired, stressed, and still more to do? Yep, we’ve all been there. It’s pretty much the “norm” these days for so many. Who isn’t doing 2 or 3 or more things at the same time, nearly all day long. It’s a slippery slope, and next thing you know you’re multi-tasking day and night, 7 days a week, and nailing it. Well... most of the time. If you’ve become an expert at this, you’ll understand the energy and concentration it takes. You’ll also know the frustration of trying to keep your energy up, stay focused, and get through all the “why can’t I remember that” moments. 

The constant and prolonged demands of a busy and stressful lifestyle can very quickly put you into energy deficit.  At these times your body draws on the nutrients you’ve just eaten, and as well as the nutrients that have been stored as back up. 

If you leave it too long to eat, tiredness and fatigue are the first signs that you’re running on empty.  As well as your body, your brain also needs to be fuelled so you can maintain focus and clarity - especially hard when life is constantly on the go with little chance of a break. You might have also felt the toll it takes on your nerves - like feeling increasingly nervous, less tolerant, more irritable, and excessively worried about things you have no control over.    

At times like these, your body’s natural instincts kick in, and the next thing you know you’re hunting out anything that’s going to provide instant energy. That’s where cravings show up. When we’re hungry, hangry, or just plain knackered, it’s the foods that give an instant hit that we turn too: great tasting stimulating foods like coffee, energy drinks and that sweet, sweet drug we call sugar.  

The great news is there’s ways to support your body and brain to make your busy life much more manageable.  

Start by: 

Eating well:  

  1. If cravings come up - eat foods with natural sugars like nuts, seeds, raisins, and fresh fruit
  2. Avoid stimulants like coffee, energy drinks, and refined sugars – you can quickly lose track on just how many coffees you had in one day 
  3. If you eat a lot of carbs – trade them for a protein instead 
  4. Don’t skip meals - especially breakfast and lunch
  5. Don’t overeat at meal times – eat yourself 80% full 

Practice:  

  1. Focus on one task at a time and break the habit of multi-tasking. It can negatively impact accuracy and performance while increasing stress - not to mention the time lost switching between tasks
  2. Give your brain mini breaks
  3. Put all screens/devices away for at least 2 hours a day
  4. Find ways to switch off your nervous system and mind, like gentle exercise, meditation, enjoying good company etc
  5. Give yourself permission to just be in the moment, and then do it – practice every day
