As much as we might like to, we can’t control every aspect of the world around us. But we can control how we react to situations in our own lives. The next time you find yourself reacting negatively, pause and write down the negative thought. Then, write down a positive thought you can replace it with when a situation like this occurs again. Use the examples below for inspiration! Then keep reading to learn how to stay energized throughout your day.

“I can’t do this.”

Can be: “I don’t know how to do this yet, but I’ve learned new things before and I can learn this too.”

“This is awful. I can’t believe it.”

Can be: “I wish this hadn’t happened, but it’s survivable, and I can use this situation to show that I can stay calm in tough times.”

“What a horrible mistake I’ve made.”

Can be: “Mistakes are learning opportunities and this situation is rich with them. I know I can find a solution to this.”

Plan your plate

When creating a meal, aim to fill 1/2 your plate with fruits and vegetables, 1/4 with whole grains and 1/4 with lean protein.

Eat consistently

Eating a healthy meal or snack every 3–4 hours can help keep blood sugar levels stable and energy up!

Snack smarter

Pair a carbohydrate-rich food with a protein or fat to stay full longer. Try carrots and hummus, banana and peanut butter or nuts and fruit.


Even mild dehydration can negatively affect your health. If you’re not a fan of plain water, try flavoring it with a lemon or lime wedge.

Try these simple tricks for keeping the energy flowing during your workday.

Give your eyes a break

Look 20 feet away for 20 seconds every 20 minutes to give your eyes a break from your screen.

Alternate sitting and standing

Every 45 minutes, switch your position: if you‘ve been sitting for 45 minutes, stand up for 15 minutes, and vice versa.

Remember your angles

Keep your elbow and knees at 90-degree angles to prevent your muscles from tiring out.

Think tall after each call

After every call you take, realign your posture — open your chest and tighten your core.

Take 3 at 3

At 3pm every day, take a micro-break to stretch one region of your body for 3 seconds, 3 times.

You can also work out anytime with these weekly workouts.
