10 Ways to Feel More Energized at Work

Have you ever fallen victim to the mid afternoon slump? Even the most driven and motivated people can get hit with fatigue at work, causing a loss in productivity and motivation. But fear not, there are ways to combat this.

1. Get Enough Sleep. It may seem like a no-brainer, but don’t underestimate the importance of a good night’s sleep. Your ability to work productively and efficiently goes down exponentially when you don’t sleep enough, no matter how much coffee you drink the next day. So stick to a solid sleep schedule, allowing you the 8+ hours of sleep per night that your body needs to power through your work day.

2. Eat Breakfast. When you’re rushed in the morning, it’s easy to skip breakfast, but you may regret it later in the day. It doesn’t have to be an elaborate meal. Just aim for something light with protein and fiber to get you through the hours until lunch time. Oatmeal, yogurt, whole wheat toast, and cereal are great quick options to keep you fueled.

If you don’t have a gym membership, a lunchtime walk is a great substitute. Continue reading
