5 Ways To Boost Your Energy and Conquer Your Day

by rayovac27, April 2017

 

We’ve all wondered how we’re going to finish everything on our list when we hit that post-lunch wall. Even after a full eight hours of sleep and a morning cup (or four) of coffee, maintaining energy throughout the day can be a struggle.

Here’s the good news: Most often, the “tired question” is not hard to answer. Maintaining a happy level of pep doesn’t have to be difficult! While it’s true that every body is different, just a few simple changes can help just about anyone feel energized throughout the day.

Check the list to see where you might find a little more fuel to keep you going from morning to night.

 

Control Stress

Stress is a lot of work. Constantly worrying and harboring negative emotions can drain energy, leaving you unhappy and exhausted.

It’s crucial to learn how to handle your stress. Talk to loved ones, see a therapist, take a few moments each day to breathe deeply and keep things in perspective—it’s the simple things that can keep you centered and worry-free.

Also important: Be realistic with what you can handle. Keep work, family, and social obligations manageable and you’ll find that each one becomes more special and fulfilling. It’s surprising how much energy you have when you’re optimistic about your life!

Exercise

It’s difficult to overstate the importance of exercise. Regularly upping your heart rate can relieve stress, improve body image, and help you sleep better. I’ll take a slice of that!

All the benefits add up to more energy. If you feel tired in the afternoon, that’s likely a good time to exercise. It will make you alert during and after your workout, and help ensure you get to bed at a reasonable time. Win-win-win times infinity.  

Food as Fuel

Say it with me: “You. Are. What. You. Eat.”

You’ve heard it a million times, and for good reason! Giving your body proper fuel-ups throughout the day is a proven way to keep you alert and less prone to ups and downs. Stick to foods that make you feel good after you eat them—it can be as simple as that. Avoid things that make you feel tired and bloated or give you a short-term energy boost with an inevitable crash.

Find Your Best Sleep

Sleep is a fickle thing. Too little or too much can be equally damaging, and it’s difficult to find what’s best for your body.

Everything above—stress management, exercise, proper diet—plays a part in sleep quality. That’s a good thing when you’re in a groove, seeing more and more benefits as you keep up consistent healthy behaviors. But when you lose momentum and struggle with even one aspect, your whole system can get thrown out of whack.

Sleep is the backbone of that system, so it needs to be a priority. Check out these sleep hygiene tips to see where you could improve your routine and set up yourself for success.

Stay Connected

We’ve all been there: It’s only 2pm and somehow your phone battery is in the red, but you’ve got plans until 8pm that could go even later. That’s stress you don’t need.

To the rescue: RAYOVAC Portable Power. These sleek power packs fit perfectly in your purse or gym bag, and many of them are good for multiple recharges so you can rely on them all week.

Just plug in your phone when the battery dips into stress-inducing territory, and it’ll keep you connected as you continue on with your day. No outlets needed, just keep this in your purse or bag and you’ve got a reliable recharge to keep you powered up wherever you go.

Why We Built the Rayovac Power Protect

by rayovac3, August 2016

Rayovac Power Protect portable charger with a personal alarmAt Rayovac, we want to be a source of power in your life. And sometimes that means empowering you, your friends or your loved ones to avoid being the victim of a violent crime or robbery. Our headquarters is in Madison, Wisconsin, a bustling college town, and within the last few years we’ve been deeply troubled by the news of people—particularly women—who have been attacked late at night when they are out jogging or walking alone. These crimes must stop. To help our fellow Madisonians—and people everywhere—create a sense of personal security, Rayovac has developed the Power Protect, a portable phone charger with a built-in personal safety alarm.

The Rayovac Power Protect is a small cylindrical phone charger that includes a flashlight and a 100 decibel emergency siren (the loudest sound level the ear can handle before creating damage). The device looks a bit like a small can of pepper spray, but it has a ring at the top that acts like a panic button.  Pulling the ring free of the charger causes an ear-piercing alarm to erupt and should scare off attackers, give you enough of a distraction to escape or beckon aid from people passing nearby. The safety siren is audible from 200 yards away*. To deactivate the safety alarm, press the power button or snap the ring back to its original setting.

The device has a 2,200 mAh battery that will offer most phones between half and two-thirds to a full charge. And you’ll never need to worry about monitoring your discharge percentage to preserve the safety siren because the Power Protect automatically stops distributing electricity at 20 percent capacity. That amount is permanently set aside in reserve to operate the alarm so it’s always usable.

The Power Protect comes in three colors, and is small enough to easily fit inside a backpack, purse or clip onto your person. Visit Rayovac.com to order a Power Protect, and take peace of mind—for your phone battery and yourself—with you on your next evening adventure.

Use this as a reminder to find a store and pick up some high tech Rayovac school supplies!

Survive your next tailgate party with full cell phone power! How many times per year do you tailgate? The average sports fan attends 6-10 tailgate parties each season. That’s a lot of chips and salsa! Sadly, I bet you can count on one hand the number of times your phone battery has made it through the entire celebration. No one wants to spend the game guarding their phone by an outlet when they could be watching their team dominate. When it comes to tailgate power, what game plan will you choose?

Plan A: Fully charge your phone before you head out and hope the battery makes it to the 3rd quarter. Plan B: Ration yourself 5 photos and 10 text messages per quarter. Data usage is reserved for emergencies only. Plan C: Be prepared with portable power and never miss a call, a text, or a photo op.  More...

Likely your task for the upcoming weekend, buying school supplies is a late August tradition. Remember when all you needed was paper, a pencil, and an eraser? Those days are long gone. With today’s fast-paced learning environment, high tech devices are becoming more and more important. Technology in the classroom is the new normal and interactive learning is the future of education. Use this as a reminder to find a store and pick up some high tech school supplies.  More...
