Finding yourself exhausted during the day at work can be challenging to overcome. Fighting the urge to close your eyes when you want to feel active is a situation we have all gone through. However, there are some easy ways to keep yourself up and running with total energy.
Skip coffee. Yes, you heard it right. We got a better alternative for you, and that is a glass of lemon water. In addition to boosting energy levels, just the scent of lemon water can improve your mood and reduce stress levels.
Gentle exercises like stretches, touching your toes, neck rolls, and seated twists can help you gain energy and feel fresh during mid-afternoon. Even light exercise helps push oxygen to the brain, remove toxins from tissues, and relieve stressed muscles.
Wash your face with cold water-this is probably the oldest trick to avoid sleepiness and tiredness. Also, the short walk to the washroom before washing your face can make you feel more energetic.
Laugh and socialize. Constantly working can drown your energy and make you feel exhausted. So, take a break and enjoy your time with coworkers and friends. Laughing helps us to stretch the muscles so that more oxygen can reach our tissues.
Some people go for a power nap when they are feeling tired. Whether working at home or in the office, a 10 to 20 minutes short nap can quickly boost your energy. It will be best to take this nap during your lunch or coffee break.
Did you know that we are solar-powered? Daylight keeps us awake by signaling our body that “it’s time to work.” It is more influential on mental tiredness rather than physical fatigue. Moreover, it will also let you feel more attentive. So, if you feel tired, go outdoors for a while, or if you have a curtain, then let some sunshine on your face.
By constantly using your phone before bedtime, you can disturb your sleep pattern-this in turn results in poor sleep quality and tiredness the next day when you show up at work. You can choose a peaceful activity before sleeping, such as meditating, reading a book, or taking a warm bath to prevent this from happening. The next day, you will wake up fresh and find it easier to work without yawning and lack of energy.
Until Next Time,
