10 Horrible Habits that are Draining your Energy

Do you feel like you have no energy during the day to complete your activities? 

Drastic changes in the work schedule, stress, and bad habits can cause energy slumps.

There are habits that we often do unconsciously.

These habits consume our energy, making us feel tired, sleepy, and even in a bad mood. 

Remember that you are the result of your habits, and it is up to you to change them or not. 

These are some of the habits that may be draining your energy:


Being under constant stress can lead to physical and emotional health problems. 

While we can't control everything that can cause us stress, we can avoid creating more than we are susceptible to.

Some of the things that can cause us more stress:

  • Overthinking things.
  • You always say yes to everything and everyone out of commitment. 
  • You always have a cluttered workplace or home.

What can we do to eliminate some stress? 

  • Avoid making more commitments than you can fulfill.
  • Keep our workplace organized and clean.
  • Get rid of the things you don't need.s
  • Do more things that make you happy
  • Take time to relax


A good diet is essential for our body to have enough nutrients to give us enough energy to carry out our activities day after day. 

Having a poor diet can lead to different diseases such as diabetes, anemia, heart disease, hypertension, etc. 

Try to eat a balanced diet that contains protein, fats, and healthy carbohydrates.


The body is 60% water and requires constant hydration to function. 

Not drinking enough water daily causes dehydration, headaches, sleepiness and can lead to urinary tract infections and kidney stones.

Experts recommend drinking at least 2 liters of water a day to stay hydrated.


A sedentary lifestyle means not having physical activity at all. 

A person who does less than 90 minutes of exercise per week has a sedentary lifestyle. 

Physical activity, however, fills the body with energy, releases endorphins (the hormone of happiness), helps to relieve stress, and improves productivity. 


Negative thoughts are the principal consumer of our energy; they make us sad, unmotivated and contribute to mental and emotional deterioration. 

Negative thoughts are usually criticisms of oneself or complaints about the situation in which we find ourselves. 

It is not easy to change this thinking overnight, but something that can help is to:

  • Talk about what makes you have these thoughts.
  • Writing affirmations 
  • Writing down things that make us happy 
  • Meditating 
  • Exercising


Who hasn't bragged about being able to do several things at the same time? 

The reality is that wanting to do many things only makes you tired, prevents you from taking the necessary breaks, such as eating and can cause anxiety and insomnia. 

  • Try to keep a planner with the things you need to do.
  • If it is possible to delegate the task to another person, do it. 
  • Never give up your time to eat or take a break because you want to cover more that day. 


If you are one of those people who consume a cup of coffee every day to wake up and charge you with energy, you are not the only one; many of us do it too.

Consuming caffeine has its benefits, but; like everything else in excess, it can cause harm. 

Consuming caffeine in excess can cause anxiety, irritability, and insomnia.

Increases stomach acid which leads to stomach discomfort.

Caffeine helps to give an instant energy boost, but when this energy discharge is over, we can feel more tired and without energy. 

Try not to drink more than 1 cup of coffee a day and preferably early in the morning,

Avoid drinking coffee every day.

Try not to consume any beverage containing caffeine before going to sleep.


Most of us have this habit of constantly complaining.  It's something we do so automatically that we don't even notice it.

Spending our day complaining about people or situations we don't like, or even out of our reach, attracts negative energy and negative thoughts. 

  • Try to start the day with positive thinking 
  • Be thankful for a new day
  • Be thankful for having a job even if you don't like it very much.
  • Write down things that make you happy, 

Doing this will help reprogram your mind and start to push negative thoughts away. 


Nowadays, the cell phone and the computer are practically our work, and we spend many hours with them. 

However, the idea is to try to have rest periods. 

Especially avoid using the cell phone before going to sleep because the blue light emitted by this device interrupts the functioning of the hormone called melatonin, which is responsible for regulating sleep; the constant use of the cell phone before going to sleep causes insomnia. 


Sometimes we hold on to things that hurt us or that we would have liked to happen differently. 

Holding on to the past won't allow you to enjoy the present and the opportunities that come your way.

It blocks our personal growth, drains the energy to create projects, and move forward.

Sometimes it is due to fear of change, or we do not feel ready to leave our comfort zone.

  • Meditating helps to reflect on oneself.
  • Create goals and objectives that drive you forward.
  • Step out of your comfort zone and embrace change. 
  • Socialize and share your happiness with the people around you.

Forgive those who hurt you or yourself for not having achieved, fulfilled, etc. It will help you to close that cycle.

Every day is a new beginning.
