List the ways you get energized:
- Well, coffee, of course.
- Impending deadlines.
- Company (especially if referring to running through the house, cleaning like an energized madwoman).
- An invigorating shower.
- An inspiring book. I’ve always loved a good self-help book to help me see better ways to spend my thoughts or the days of my life, but decorating, gardening, art and cook books can also get me going.
- An unexpected day off. You know, the ones that feel like “cutting class” or bonus days, and open up whole worlds of possibilities.
- A good night’s sleep.
