CEBU CITY, Philippines— Sometimes, an energy bar isn’t enough to replenish the energy you lose in a day.

So the best way to keep that energy level up is to avoid the things that can easily drain the energy in you.

Here’s how.

Don’t overthink

Stop creating instances that are not going to happen. Live and trust the moment you are in. Stop thinking of the ugly what-ifs and start accepting what is and what’s now. Overthinking can create anxiety and can often lead to having trust issues with the people around you.

Limit social media usage

Social media is where we usually see updates on anyone and everything. And this can sometimes be the best avenue for us to be insecure. The things we see that others have and we don’t is the thing that can ignite the uncertainty in us. Browse for a couple of hours and always put in mind to look at only what’s good and needed.

Get a night of good sleep

Relax your mind and body. This is the best thing you can do to recharge, regain and maintain the energy you need to work on you. This is the easiest thing you can do to reward yourself too. Stop using your phone, go home early, then sleep. You’ll be surprised by the good effects sleeping right can give you.

Move forward

Stop living in the past! There’s nothing left to see there. Walk away from the past and start making your way to a better future. You can look back at the past and just see the lessons you can get from it but nothing more. You can’t change what happened before but you can definitely do better in the now.

Stray away from negativity

If this part includes you staying away from some of your “friends” then so be it! Do it! You don’t need them to tell you constantly that what you are planning to can result in something bad, but rather you can just let them talk but never listen. Keep yourself in the positive zone and vibe at all times!

Life is what you make it and you can’t really make it if you don’t have the right amount of energy to face the day.

Nothing beats being able to just relax and take it one step at a time. /bmjo
