Tips on Staying Alert, Focused & Productive at Work

Wednesday, February 4, 2015

It happens to everyone, and if it hasn't happened to you yet, it will; falling asleep at work. Busy schedules, long hours, red-eye flights and early meetings don't mesh well with our sleep schedules. Even if you aren't tired, it may be hard to stay productive when the days are getting shorter and colder. If you are having trouble concentrating at the office, check out these fun tips on staying alert and productive at work.

Stay Cool
Warm temperatures make you feel relaxed and sleepy. Heat can also intensify feelings of pressure, frustration and stress, so stay cool throughout the day by hydrating yourself with a cold glass of water and fresh foods like fruits and veggies. If your office gets warm, bring a desk fan to work to keep you cool and refreshed.

Stand Up and Energize
Stuck at a desk job? Many professions require you to sit for the majority of the day, so when you're starting to lose focus stand up and stretch for a few minutes. Sitting all day can take a toll on your mind and body, so periodically getting up to walk around or stretch will give you a mini break and help you feel refreshed.

Get Outside
Try taking a quick walk to get some fresh air during your lunch break. The more you are moving around, the less likely you are to doze off in your office chair. If you have to be inside for the majority of your work, you can still take a break and step outside to clear your head. During your break, mentally make a list of all the things you need to accomplish for the day. It’s amazing how much the great outdoors can motivate you!

Plan a Vacation
Everyone needs a break, so why not schedule a vacation? It doesn't have to be expensive or extravagant, just take a few days off to relax. After you've booked your days off, make a list of all the projects you need to get done at work before your time off. Having something fun to look forward to will help motivate you to work hard.

Take a Nap
If all else fails, take a quick nap! A 20 minute power nap can help rejuvenate your restless body. Don't have time for a nap? If you're really dragging your feet, a bottle of your favorite 5-hour ENERGY® flavor can help you ditch that 2:30 feeling®.

For those days when you struggle to stay awake and productivity is hard to find, remember these little tips to re-energize and keep you alert, focused and productive!

New Year, New You!

Friday, January 2, 2015
2015 has arrived! Have you created a New Year’s resolution? Creating a year-long goal may sound great in theory, but the fact is that the majority of people who create a resolution don’t end up sticking to it. To help keep you motivated to stick to your resolution this year, the team at 5-hour ENERGY® has compiled a list of effective tips to help keep your New Year’s resolution going strong throughout 2015!

Understand the reasons why you want to make this change in your life
Once you've made a resolution, list the reasons for why you want to make that change in your life. If they seem trivial, you probably won’t end up caring enough to accomplish the goal. Make sure that the reasons for why you want to change a habit or behavior are deeply rooted and important to you, whether that be for your personal health, self-confidence, etc.

Make it something that you really want
Be passionate about the things you want to change in your life. If you don’t really care about the goal you’re trying to accomplish, you won’t be motivated to work hard to achieve it. When you truly care about making a change in your life, you will naturally work harder to reach that goal.

Make sure you have a support system
Have a support system that will be there if you fall to help you back up and to keep you motivated and focused on the goal at hand. It’s great to have an encouraging support system, but they also need to be willing to be firm and honest if you get sidetracked on your way to accomplishing you resolution!

Lay out a list of obstacles that you’ll encounter & how to overcome them
Compose a list of all of the different obstacles that you can foresee before attempting to accomplish your goal. Once you have all of the obstacles fleshed out on paper, go through each one individually and question whether or not you are physically capable of overcoming them. If you get through all of the obstacles and realize that overcoming each of them IS possible, then accomplishing your end goal will seem accessible and feasible.

Create reminders that you’ll see
Making notes to put around the house or at the office to constantly remind yourself of your New Year’s resolution may sound silly, but when things are out of sight they are also out of mind! These friendly reminders will manifest themselves and won’t let you forget about the goal that you set out to accomplish.

Reward success
No matter big or small, rewards are a great way to remind yourself that you've taken another step in the right direction. Rewarding yourself also helps you keep motivation levels high, so take the time to reward yourself as you reach certain short term goals on the way to your long term goal.
