Do you find yourself becoming less productive in the afternoon? The mid afternoon slump can hinder your work effort and be troublesome in the workplace. However, we have compiled a few ideas to allow you to power through your afternoon, or at least rejuvenate.
Move: If you have a company gym, use your lunch break to get a good workout in. Afterwards you will feel ready to conquer the afternoon. If you aren’t so lucky, stretch or take a walk. Even this small break away from your computer will do amazing things for your energy levels (not to mention eyes).
Eat: Have a high protein snack like nuts or carrots and hummus to stay alert.
Listen: Play upbeat music while you work or go and see your coworker instead of emailing them. The latter provides a break from your desk and sometimes face-to-face discussions are more beneficial than lengthy email chains anyways.
- Hydrate: Drink water throughout the day, and if you really need an afternoon pick-me-up, try green tea. It is super healthy and has less caffeine than coffee, so it’s perfect for those who want a good night’s sleep.
