Your shoulders droop….your eyes feel heavy….and you blink a few times to clear the cobwebs from your mind. It’s 2:00pm and all you can think about is that comfy bed you crawled out of this morning. Do you hear it calling your name?
Heads up—you’ve just hit the afternoon slump! Your mind is minutes from shutting down. Lovely, isn’t it?
Apparently, this slump is caused by our natural sleep cycles—one that happens while we sleep at night, and one that happens 12 hours later—or midday. A good night’s rest and proper protein at lunch can help you avoid it, but many of us still encounter this “state of grogginess” no matter how many things we do to prepare.
These 5 tips help you clear the cobwebs so you can be more energized and productive throughout the day. They’re simple, effective, and give you a boost when you need it most!
