You work hard day in and day out. It can be easy to have that spark and glow when you wake up in the morning and get ready, but that can quickly fade over a long day. Doing small things to regularly rejuvenate can help boost your energy and keep you glowing all day long.
Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate
Water is essential for keeping your mind alert, headaches to a minimum, your skin radiant, and every part of your body functioning smoothly. Doctors typically recommend a minimum of six glasses of water per day for an average adult. You should also take into account your height, weight, and activity or exercise levels when determining how much water your body needs. Keeping a water bottle at your desk or with you at all times when you are traveling can help you stay hydrated and glowing all day.
Don’t Skip Your Breaks
With all the tasks you have to complete, it may be tempting to keep working nonstop until everything is done. You may even believe that not taking breaks will help you get things done faster, but you actually need regular breaks to relax and recharge in between long, stressful, or intense activities. As simple as it sounds, taking a lunch break offers multiple benefits that will help you feel better and look your best. During a lunch break, you are fueling your muscles, giving your mind a break, and letting your body rest. Taking breaks will help you return to your tasks reinvigorated with fresh energy, ultimately helping you finish faster.
Use a Mood or Inspiration Board
Mood and inspiration boards are typically used in visual arts and other creative projects, but they can be adapted to help you with your projects and everyday life. These boards are typically collages of different colors, pictures, textures, and quotes intended to evoke a specific emotion or aesthetic for a project. Customizing a board with motivational quotes, pictures of your loved ones, and serene scenery can keep you smiling and inspired all day long.
The secret to maintaining a healthy glow from hour to hour is maintaining your happiness and health. Surrounding yourself with positivity and creating a positive mental environment will help you conquer each day. When you feel better about yourself, you are more likely to complete tasks faster and with a better attitude.
