We all experience low points during the course of the day, and if you are speaking to customers, this could have a negative effect. There are ways however to boost your energy when it is lagging:
- Take a walk, even if it’s just to the bathroom.
- Drink a glass of cold water.
- Be sure to eat a good breakfast and lunch.
- Plug into others- being with energized people, keeps you energized!
- Listen to up-beat music.
- Try to stay humorous.
The typical structure of a staff timetable is 8 hours of working, with some short breaks in between times. We all know that it can be difficult to maintain a positive demeanour for eight hours straight! It is essential therefore that anyone in a customer-facing job approaches their day in sensible, structured fashion which allows them to get the most out of themselves. Staying energized is often difficult, but as long as you develop a good routine, you find a way to deal with even the dreariest day.
It is essential to find something that allows you break out of the “lows” that anyone will experience during a working day. These lows are common to all of us and we all have different ways of dealing with them. One of the most commonly used methods of shaking out this kind of torpor is a “change of scenery”. Something as simple as going to get a drink or get some fresh air is beneficial.
Making the effort to have breakfast in the morning – even if you feel as though eating is the last you want to do – can be of huge benefit, allowing you to maintain energy throughout the morning. It may be a cliché, but making sure that you don’t skip breakfast can go a very long way to keeping you energised through the day.
