There’s a lot more to staying energized and engaged throughout your workday than constant trips to the coffee machine. Getting adequate sleep and starting your day right is also important. However, there are things you can do at work that can help you avoid the frequent onset of fatigue and drowsiness.
Here are just a few suggestions:
• Stay hydrated – Keep a large water bottle on your desk to remind yourself to take frequent sips. Dehydration is one of the top causes of fatigue.
• Cut the carbs – Put away the potato chips and grab a banana. Researchers have found that foods such as salmon, kale, avocado, nuts, and bananas are great energy boosters.
• Break a sweat – If you can fit a workout into your lunch break, it’s a surefire way to stay at peak performance until the end of the day.
• Power up with pumpkin – Pumpkin seeds are rich in protein and fiber. They also contain L-tryptophan, an energy-boosting amino acid.
