When we have too much to do with not enough time and energy, the we get stressed.
So either you reduce your workload, which doesn’t seem to be a possibility these days, or you increase your time – this is not possible either.
So what we are left with is to increase your energy levels.Now how do we increase our energy levels?
1. The right amount of food – not too much and not too little. A balanced diet with enough carbohydrates and proteins.
2. The right amount of sleep. 6 – 8 hours of sleep, not more not less.
3. Learning some deep breathing exercises – this increases your energy.
4. Few moments of a meditative mind. Few minutes of deep relaxation – conscious deep relaxation is what I would call meditation.
A few minutes of meditation can relieve all types of stress.
If you meditate in the morning and evening for 15 – 20 minutes, it is good enough. It will keep you going.
Usually, I recommend meals and meditation in the afternoon.
In work places when people sit together and meditate for a few minutes and share a meal together, they find it so refreshing and are able to carry on through the day with the same energy which they came to the office with.
