Fighing the mid-afternoon blahs

Lunch is long over, quitting time is long in the future--and you are so drained you could put your head on the desk.

According to CareerBuilder and sleep expert Michael J. Breus, author of Beauty Sleep, in the afternoon your core temp begins to drop, you release melatonin, and ... nap time!

Some companies have nap couches, but don't get your hopes up--very few.

Have a good breakfast. Have protein. At lunch watch the fat content. Carbs increase alertness.

Coffee is also helpful. Two-three cups a day helps.

Move around, take a walk.

Stay busy--answer emails, anything.

I take a nap. But of course, I work at home and I am a nice boss to myself.
