5 Easy Ways to Beat Fatigue at Work

Feeling drowsy at your desk? Low on energy? No matter how much you love what you do, it’s possible to have a “sleepy spell” every now and then. Here are five easy ways to perk up!

#1 – Eat a Tiny Square of Chocolate

Chocolate has been shown to not only boost our mood, but eating it helps the body release energy-boosting feel good endorphins. When you’re about to fall asleep in your chair, have a little square of antioxidant-rich dark chocolate. It will do the trick!

 

#2 – Drink Two Glasses of Cold Water

Not huge glasses — little cups will do. Here’s why: One of the major causes of exhaustion is dehydration (sometimes you don’t even know you’re dehydrated; instead you just feel sluggish). Go rehydrate your cells right now!

 

#3 – Doodle

If you’re yawning and having trouble concentrating on a conference call, consider pulling out a pad of paper and a pen and letting yourself doodle a bit — that’s right, hearts, unicorns, rainbows …whatever goofy thing comes to mind. Experts say that doodling can help the brain focus. Surprising, right? And when you’re focused on what you’re doing, you’re less likely to be zoning out and thinking about a nap.

 

#4 – Snack on Something Vitamin-C Rich
