Prepare notations
Look at the record structure in the attachment below. Copy this over in your Notes app or copy this structure over on a piece of paper.

Journal
Provide a brief description of the activity. In addition, indicate energy levels per activity by registering the extent to which the activity at hand enhanced energy or depleted energy. You can choose to do this throughout the day, during your break, or at the end of your day first thing when you get home. Remember to pick an appropriate cue. Repeat this for 7 days
3.
Activities
Use the second attachment below as the final structure with which you will judge your findings. Again, this can be done either digitally on analogue -- on a piece of paper. Select 5 Green Activities that make you most energized and list them. Likewise, do the same thing regarding the Red Activities which leave you feeling most depleted.
4.
Day Notes
Take your notes in your recording structure for 7 days.
5.
Final Reflections
Use the last attachment to answer the following questions based on your records. What have you learned from this exercise? What new discovery(ies) have you made about yourself? How can you use your strengths more often? Which strengths are lacking (weaknesses)? How can you effectively deal with situations that deplete your energy?
6.
Take a Picture and energize
You just completed an important experiment: you took the time to objectively record and analyse your natural responses to activities and you should be proud. you reflected deeply and that is a precious thing nowadays. Take a snapshot of your insight and keep it at least in your camera roll. If you forget one of your insights you will know where to find it!
