  • Do you ever feel tired or sleepy during the afternoon?

  • Most of us have experienced it.

  • Those last few hours between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. when we still need to get things done and be productive, but have trouble focusing because of low energy levels.

  • Doing certain mental and physical activities during these hours can help you improve your mood and increase your energy levels.

  • So, if you want to avoid feeling tired after lunch time, here are 5 ideas for an energizing afternoon routine.

  • The first one is healthy snacking.

  • Restore your energy levels by eating or drinking something healthy.

  • For example, you can hydrate yourself by drinking water or make a delicious smoothie that will restore your energy.

  • The second one is to go for a walk and get some fresh air.

  • If you've been inside all day, getting outside will switch your focus to something other than what you've been doing throughout your day.

  • The third one is a meditation.

  • Doing some deep breathing for even 5 minutes can clear your head and bring you back into the present moment.

  • This is a time to rest your brain from any worries you've had throughout the day.

  • The fourth one is personal progress.

  • Do something that will bring you closer to where you want to be in the future.

  • If you have a personal project you've been wanting to work on but have been putting off,

  • Give it your full attention for ten minutes.

  • Once that time is up, you can either keep going because you got started or you can just stop right there because at least you've taken one small step towards your goal.

  • And remember, doing something is better than nothing!

  • The fifth one is to expand your mind.

  • You can read an interesting book, watch a documentary, or listen to an interview with someone you find inspiring.

  • Feed your mind with positivity and inspiring content that makes you want to be the best you can be.

  • You might experience a slower afternoon every now and then.

  • But that's why you can use these tips the next time you struggle to make it throughout the day.

  • Thank you for watching and I'll talk to you next time!
