We’ve all experienced the midday slump.
That sleepy, drowsy feeling you get in the afternoon.
You’re probably facing it almost daily after lunch.
And it’s tough.
You want to get your work done.
You don’t want your bosses or co-workers to see you struggling to stay awake.
You just wish it could go away.
Well, it can.
And it’s not all that hard to overcome it either.
But a mistake that we commonly make whenever we need more energy is to grab a cup of coffee.
That’s fine but it’s not an optimal solution to the problem.
Because the side effect of that cup of coffee is going to make you even drowsier later on when you crash.
Get moving instead.
One of the ways that many have tried and tested is to get up from your desk and start moving.
Work up a sweat and run out of breath if it’s possible.
Take a walk, climb up and down the stairs, do some squats, anything.
Exercise energizes you.
So the more ‘worked out’ you feel, the more energized you’ll be.
That’s because our body releases endorphins when we exercise.
They’re responsible for not just boosting our energy levels, but also improving our mood at the same time.
Being stagnant at your desk when you’re already drowsy makes things worse.
Get up and get moving.
