Most of us are early risers. Some of us are early risers and also hit the sack rather late. All of us — especially as we age — face the mid-afternoon blahs. Lots is left to be done and the last thing you want to do is get it done.
Here are some ideas to pump up your afternoon and make it more productive.
Eat a healthy snack. This isn’t something laden with sugar. We don’t need the roller coaster high of sugar. The goal is to keep sugar levels level all day. You can Google a bunch of ideas as to what will make the perfect mid-afternoon snack.
Schedule your meetings for afternoon. The same with important deadlines. These keep you focused. Do the easier stuff in the morning. Your body and brain will find it easier to focus and stay focused if what you’re doing in the afternoon is critical to the job.
Go for a walk. Get some fresh air. This gets oxygen flowing and clears the head. The recommended walk length is five to 10-minutes.
Stay hydrated. You actually should be doing this all day long. Also, experts say a touch of coffee won’t hurt your afternoon either.
Do some meditation. It’s like a mini-nap. Meditation and slow breathing completely switch off the brain and is a battery recharge.
Upbeat music after mediation revs up the engine and gets you going strong.
Breathing and stretching. While the music roars — or at least is hearable if you’re in a cubicle situation — do some breathing and stretching. Twist your torso and head left and right. Curve your back. Then sit up straight and breathe in and out.
Do these three times.
