Managing your energy in the workplace

Perry Timms, Founder and Chief Energy Officer at People and Transformational HR shares five tips to help with managing your energy at work.


Five Tips

1. Know your energy

Everyone is different and knowing your own energy rhythm can help:

  • How does your energy fluctuate throughout the day?
  • Do you like periods of deep reflection or do you prefer variety and stimulation?

2. Map your energy

Mapping out challenges and tasks for the day can help to line up tasks alongside your energy rhythms:

  • What activities boost your energy?
  • What activities drain your energy?

i.e. What activities will require you to think and reflect and where can you best schedule to do these in your day?

3. Time-box your energy

Looking at the tasks and activities you need to do in the day, ask yourself:

  • How long will each task or activity take?
  • How can you map these alongside where your energy levels will likely be at?

4. Journal your energy

Reflect back on your day and journal your experience of how you used your energy. This will help to learn how to manage your energy better tomorrow.

5. Engage with your energy

  • Listen to yourself about how you feel
  • Share with others how you felt throughout the day
  • Think about how to empathise with yourself and others about how energy is used
