Empowering Women: Mastering Energy Management for Career Success

Updated: Jun 30, 2023

In today's fast-paced world, managing our energy levels can be a challenge. This is especially true for women who are juggling their careers, families, and personal lives. As a personal branding and career coach for high achieving women, I have seen first-hand how important it is to prioritize our energy levels to ensure we can perform at our best. Here, we share some strategies that you can use to manage your energy levels.

1. Prioritize Self-Care

One of the most important things women can do to manage their energy levels is to prioritize self-care. This includes getting enough sleep, eating a healthy diet, and engaging in regular exercise. When we take care of our bodies, we have more energy and can focus better. While it's not always easy to achieve this consistently even just focusing on improving one of these areas can help. The power of sleep is a huge one - the Rise App is a great way to track your sleep debt and manage it better in line with your natural sleep cycle.

2. Manage Stress

Stress can be a significant drain on our energy levels - it's an obvious one. However, finding a practise that works for you to reduce this is critical. It's worth dedicating some time to researching some techniques that work for you and your lifestyle. From breathing exercises, to meditation, quiet time, the headspace app, a lo-fi spotify playlist or a morning walk. you need a go to resource/technique you can use for when you are reaching the stress zone. While it might not remove it completely but it's all about having tools that you know work for you.

3. Identify Your Peak Energy Times

Everyone has times of the day when they feel most energetic and productive. Take time to identify these times and schedule your most important tasks during these periods. Hormones also affect energy levels across cycles - so raising your awareness of this and thinking about how you schedule activity across the month can help you take a slower pace when you need it most.

4. Flow & Focus

Enjoy some focus and flow time where you can be immersed in an activity (work or fun) at least once per day. An activity where you can leave your phone to one side and not be interrupted. Even 20 minutes can rest and reset your brain.

5. Develop a Personal Brand

Personal branding is crucial to career success. Once you have it in place it is working for you 24/7 to help you attract the right professional opportunities.

It is all well and good having a high achieving career but this should not be at the cost of your physical or mental health. Prioritise yourself first - while for many of us that does not come naturally, try it. We encourage you to do one thing after reading today's post to support your well-being, even if it is just for five minutes.
