What can make you feel drained off your energy?

Most women that I have known are cheered up by shopping and chocolate!
Sleep and diet. Both have a huge impact on energy levels. Stress is also a factor, but that's arguably more mental than physical.
Sleeping or watching my favourite TV shows helps me to regain the energy, also going out for a drink with friends is a good way to unwind. In general, anything deviating from the routine can make us feel refreshed.
Lack of sleep, stress, using the computer or laptops most of the time, IPads, noisy bad neighbours, or even just watching TV, work related matters and other things can drain us off our energy. Moaning colleagues or friends can drain us off our energy. Best thing to do is avoid their company if they are always moaning and groaning about anything. I don't like people who are negative all the time because they drain me off my energy. Sometimes going out for meals with your friends and relations can lift your mood or just going shopping then to the movies can help with energising yourself. Exercise should not be forgotten and just doing what makes you happy really.

I go by the good old rule: the best way to rest is switching to a different type of activity. Whenever I feel emotionally or intellectually drained, it often helps to do some mechanic, mindless work or take a long walk. If I'm exhausted from running to and fro, it's a good time to curl up with a book or settle down for a chat. And of course, is everything else fails, there's always sleep!
have a nap, eat some energy food and rest. It should perk me up again.
