Q. When I'm low on energy...

We all have energy highs and lows, but what are the symptoms of low energy for ourselves, and what the the things we do when we notice them?

Use this question to first identify your own signs of low energy: do you get distracted? irritable? make more mistakes?

Then list some of the things which you can do to give yourself a little boost.

Keep this private for yourself, or share it with others so they can help spot your low energy and help you get back up and going.

How to find your answer:

1. Try and think to how you behave when you're feeling low on energy - list these behaviours.

2. Now, what are the activities you undertake when you notice your low energy, or to avoid low energy. Consider things like screen breaks, small healthy snacks, outdoor time, or just having a chat with someone who energises you.

3. If you find this task difficult, try energy journalling to identify the times of day where your energy levels dip.
