Hi! Disconnect the functions of Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and don't connect to the high-speed internet. Disable push notifications, vibration, turn off the sound.. There is an article on Digital Trends that lists a few more tips on how to keep your battery's life longer.

With the Nexus 5 screen brightness makes a difference but wallpaper colour doesn't, as it's not an amoled screen (thank god). I use Greenify, which hibernates apps, meaning there's no lag or drain, without actually closing them. I also use a profiler that underclocks/overclocks my phone depending on which apps I'm using, what the battery level is, and time of day.

Determine which apps you may not need or use anymore and uninstall them, determine which apps you keep are causing the most battery drain and see if a comparable replacement from the marketplace is going to do better.

Just go to app manager and untick messages from those apps in question.
Then keep an eye on the battery for a week or so.
