7 Habits That Always Drain Your Energy


Failing to plan

In a rush to get things done, we often skip steps that are important for success.

We don’t allocate enough time to complete a task or research what is needed, we forget to communicate with others or establish a process, and we never put systems in place. 

While it may be tempting to skip these steps in order to avoid delays and other problems, doing so will result in your work taking longer than necessary and leaving you frustrated. Give yourself ample time to do what needs doing—and remember that it is better late than never!


Worrying about the past

Holding onto regrets and worrying about what you could have done differently is a surefire way to create stress and tension in your body. Instead of dwelling on old hurts, learn to let go of things that are beyond your control. Remind yourself that there’s no point in worrying—it won’t change anything, and it certainly won’t make you feel better. The past is over, so let it go!


Not working on your physical fitness

Regardless of how long you have for your morning commute, it’s important to make time for physical activity. After all, exercise is one of many key components to a healthy lifestyle and will always leave you with more energy than before you started.


While it may be hard to squeeze a morning workout into your routine at first, take small steps toward a healthier lifestyle by incorporating physical fitness into daily habits like brushing your teeth and taking out the trash. If getting in shape seems intimidating, don’t worry—it doesn’t have to be complicated. A simple 10-minute jog around your neighborhood can help increase heart rate and respiration while boosting stamina and overall mood.

We’re told to look on the bright side, be optimistic and all that happy-go-lucky stuff. I do it too, at times. Sometimes it does feel good to be all zen about life and if you have a lot of stressors going on in your life then you should probably just shut up and smile. But there are also times when being overly sensitive is really bad for you. It’s incredibly draining to be sad or hurt or angry all of the time; they don’t go away on their own either! So how do we learn how to manage our emotions better?


Complaining about small things

When you spend your time complaining about what’s not working in your life, you take away from your energy to deal with what IS working. Negative thoughts affect your immune system and it can be a major drain on your overall health. When you find yourself dealing with a problem, try to focus on positive solutions that will lead to positive outcomes. And if you can’t come up with something good, just think of anything else...anything but that one thing!


Living beyond your means

We live in a world that markets luxury. If you don’t have it, you won’t be happy. If you don’t have that Gucci purse or carry around a $1,000 phone, people will think of you as less than your peers.

But living beyond your means—in terms of money and energy—will wear you down every single day. And if you think spending big bucks is going to give you lots of energy, think again:

Studies show overspending actually drains energy because stress and worry are byproducts of financial uncertainty. So before engaging in any more impulse shopping (or borrowing), ask yourself if that purchase will help or hinder your energy levels and overall happiness throughout your life.


Comparing yourself to others

  • Comparing yourself to others is a quick and easy way to set yourself up for failure.
  • When you compare your progress to that of others, you’re essentially creating a benchmark or goal that’s impossible to reach.
  • Comparing yourself is always going to make it seem like everyone else is doing better than you in every aspect of life.
  • But comparing yourself isn’t just bad for your self-esteem—it can also be damaging to your health, particularly when it comes to fitness goals.
  • If your goal is 10 pounds of muscle in six months, there’s no way around it: you have to make sure those numbers are going up on that scale. Every single week. And if they don’t?
