Energy sinkholes are situations that slowly but surely drain your energy and stress you out. These seven energy drains may not be immediately apparent because they rarely hit you all at once. Over time, however, they can leech life right out of you, leaving you stressed, depressed, and apathetic.
Your best combat technique is to get a routine, and to have preplanned methods for handling each of these energy sinkholes. Here are a few of the biggest time stealers. For the complete list, don’t miss the full article at Lifehack.org.
Disorganization – Few things can be as draining as constantly having to root around for missing documents and files.
The remedy lies in creating a system for organizing and routinely tidying up. Some areas to keep in mind are your computer hard-drive, to-do lists, filing system, your desk, and your closets.
Poor diet and lack of exercise – Getting in the habit of eating right and exercising regularly can actually help combat all your other energy drains as it will help keep your energy levels high.
Create a routine and stick to it for at least 30 days before you allow yourself to change your mind, and don’t try to overhaul your diet all at once. Instead, replace one unhealthy food type for a healthy one, one at a time.
“Squeaky hinges” – These are pieces of technology, or products that work, but have annoying, or time-consuming side effects. Examples include a computer that’s too slow to run the programs you use regularly, a dishwasher that doesn’t get all the food off, or an alarm clock that doesn’t wake you up.
If you can fix or replace the piece of machinery inexpensively, do it now, or come up with a plan for how and when to replace it with something that can actually get the job done.
