There are sure to be small things in your day that infuse you with a disproportionate amount of energy.
It could be a cup of coffee after lunch, a walk by yourself, a piece of delicious chocolate cake, or an extra hour of sleep.
If you know what there are, then it might be time to allow yourself that boost. Often, denying them just means thinking about them for the rest of the day or spending willpower attempting to resist.
If a small investment can give you a disproportionate energy boost the rest of the day, it is likely worth it. Engagement takes energy and we generally need all the boosts we can get.
We don’t make an impact by the number of hours we put into life. Instead, we make an impact by the number of hours we engage with life.
