    • First off, I do my best to get enough sleep the night before. But I find that when I’m really busy during the day, I need to eat little bits of food and drink as much water as I can throughout the day or my energy level plummets. This semester is a monster! I’m out of the house by 7:30 and either working all day or running from class to class with 15 minutes in between and then get home at 4 or 5 in time to make dinner and get back to studying in the evening before bed and in between loads of laundry.

      I usually make myself some fresh vegetable/fruit juice and then have an omelette for breakfast then today I brought a cup of yogurt, a piece of whole grain bread and a cut up bell pepper to eat throughout the day so I wouldn’t get hungry. I do this type of thing a lot and it seems to work for me.

      How do you stay focused and energetic through a busy day?

    • When I’m really busy, I don’t think about it much, I just go.  It’s when I have a super slow draggy day that I loose all energy and ambition. But getting enough sleep is very important.  When I have a lot of those busy, busy days back to back, I crash in the recliner about 8 and then get up and go to bed at ten.

    • I make sure I stop and eat a sufficient amount of food throughout the day! I add extra fruit to my diet also.

    • Latley I have increased my water intake and fruits throughout the day and it seems to be working.  I try and get to bed at least by 10 four times out of the week.

    • I’m with Tulip—the busy-ness energizes me.  If not, there’s always coffee!

    • I drink a lot of water...eat nutritious foods and stay away from simple carbs that will make me tired.

    • I have to admit, most of my days are not terribly hectic anymore, mostly because of pain issues off and on...but I do keep very busy in the home, get regular exercise, eat very well, sleep 7-8 hours and allow myself to meditate...that is a great thing for releasing tension.
