Beating The Afternoon Slump!

TIP 1 Eat & Drink to Boost Energy Choose water to drink and lunch options that are high in protein, fiber, whole grains and vegetables to give you a post-lunch boost. Dehydration can make you feel tired. When you are dehydrated, your blood volume is reduced, your heart is working harder, and less blood is getting to your brain.

Tip 2 - Take a Breath & Movement Break Be deliberate about moving and breathing deeply and slowly throughout the day. Simple movement and breathing both allow energizing oxygen to move throughout the body more efficiently. Try a series of energizing yoga poses @ your desk; go for a short walk outside, take the stairs instead of the elevator, or try a 7-minute workout at your desk. Maybe even try out some simple breathing exercises.
