Improve energy levels to stay on your game

Maintaining a good level of energy is incredibly important for being able to successfully function as a CENTURY 21 real estate agent.  Increased energy at work usually results in more motivation to be able to push yourself to achieve goals, while poor energy levels can lead to a disheartened attitude and an inability to function and grow in your career.

A high energy level is beneficial especially when in sales.  Appearing energised and motivated can help you to connect with your clients – energised people often come across as happy and enthusiastic, and it is these attributes that contribute to closing deals.

Here are a few tips on how to maintain energy levels and stay on your game while at work.

1. Sleep
Our bodies need adequate sleep for energy. The US-based National Sleep Foundation suggests adults should have between 7-9 hours of sleep per night. The amount of sleep you need to function can also depend on a range of individual factors such as your lifestyle, age and health.

2. Diet
Do your best to avoid eating habits that can drain your energy levels. This can include eating too much or too little, not getting enough natural foods or having too much sugar.   

3. Eat a good breakfast
A study conducted at Cardiff University found that people who consumed cereal rich in fibre for breakfast developed improved cognitive skills and were able to sustain higher energy levels for a prolonged period.

4. Avoid unnecessary stress
Too much stress can make you feel sluggish and worried.  Keep in mind that pressure from your family and home life can affect your attitude and stress levels at work. So where possible try to minimise your exposure to needlessly worrying situations, as stress uses a lot of energy and mind space.

5. Keep moving
Our bodies function best when we spread our physical energy across the course of the day. By moving around even a little bit each hour you can keep your energy flowing.

These and other simple measures can help you to effectively maintain your energy levels throughout the day.  Learning how to manage your body’s energy and strength of mind can positively impact your productivity and efficiency as a CENTURY 21 agent, and help you to build your career.
