A few years ago I took a seminar, paid for by my then employer, about being a woman in the workplace. It was one of those girl power kind of days where I might have rolled my eyes the entire time if the presenter had not been so likable, funny, dynamic, and, yes, energetic. In the end I kept all the information she gave us that day, but even without looking at them, I remember two important lessons I took away from her:
- Be your own cheerleader. Make a folder or file of the professional compliments you receive. It’s okay to keep reminders that you are A+ awesome at what you do. When I’m feeling tired or worn out on my job, I look at my folder and remember that it does matter to someone. I matter.
- Vitamin B-12. Pop one first thing in the morning and another one right after lunch. Better than coffee to keep your energy up.
What about you readers? How do you keep your energy up?
