It never fails. It’s 3 p.m. and you feel like all your energy has been zapped.
Get moving!: Even a quick walk around your building can make all the difference. Get the blood flowing, and subsequently your creative juices! A change of scenery can do wonders.
Drink up: Water has been known to refresh the body and the mind. As a last resort, splashing cool water on your face can be reviving.
Think light: Avoid carbs midday day to avoid a crash later. Most people scarf down their lunch in between projects. Instead, consider grazing all day. You’ll notice it’s hard to fall asleep when you’re chomping on carrots!
Catch some zzs: A-minute “power nap” has been shown to reduce stress and replenish vital energy. If you don’t have the luxury of working from home, carve out some time in your lunch break to relax in your car.
Take a break: Call a friend, read the paper, or even stretch–these are all good ways to give your brain a rest. You deserve it!
