It is time to shift from managing TIME to managing ENERGY.
Productivity and Wellbeing are important topics for companies and they both go hand in hand.
What do we absolutely need to be productive? Well, we need ENERGY and the ability to CONCENTRATE on a task. Your might have the fastest software and PC’s, the most ergonomic workplaces, but if your people are chronically low on energy and have difficulties to concentrate, their productivity and personal wellbeing will drastically decline.
So how come we learn how to manage our time, but nobody teaches us how to keep our energy levels high and at constant levels throughout the day? There are some simple techniques and basic principles that can significantly improve energy levels and the ability to concentrate. Many people get through their day in 1st gear and wonder how come they suddenly feel tired in the afternoon and exhausted when they get home. After all, they have been sitting most of the day too.
All of our physical and mental processes are directed by our nervous system and especially our autonomous nervous system. In short, you are either accelerating (Sympathetic drive) or you are braking (Parasympathetic drive). Your nervous system continuously adapts and either decides to accelerate or brake more.
The problem is that most people are unnecessarily operating in a high Sympathetic state (acceleration), burning way too much energy for the activity that they are doing. Many don’t know how to down-regulate (brake) in the evening to sleep well. So basically, most of us are driving continuously in first gear on the highway of life, while shifting to 6th gear would be much wiser.
In order to understand how to manage energy and increase concentration, you need to teach your people the basics about breathing patterns and eating habits during working hours. Improving them both will have a huge impact on productivity and wellbeing.
