#529 The Afternoon Slump






The afternoon seems to drag on. You look up at the clock and it’s almost 3 p.m.  Agghhh! The day is not even done yet, but why do you feel so tired? You wish you could take a snooze, but, alas, work needs to get done. Have you ever felt that? I call it the Afternoon Slump.


I have been told the sudden crash in the afternoon, come from the fact that your body has a natural rhythm or set clock in our bodies, so many people tend to feel a little sleepy around 2 or 3 in the afternoon. To combat this problem, I have now learn't a sure remedy to beat the Afternoon  Slump and hope this helps for you.


If you're feeling sluggish in the early afternoon, ask yourself these questions:
  • Did I eat breakfast?
  • What did I eat for breakfast? (A cup of coffee doesn't count.)
  • What did I eat for lunch? Was it from the vending machine?
Your answers may point to the problem. A cup of coffee on the run for breakfast and a candy bar from the vending machine for lunch may give you the quick jolt of sugar and caffeine you need to get started, but not the long-term fuel you need to keep going, This will only help for a very short time, and it's not enough to keep the body and brain functioning at their peak."


If you want to beat the midafternoon slump, start first thing in the morning with a good-quality breakfast. (We lecture our kids about it, but how often do we take our own advice?) Most women should be eating about 300 to 400 calories for breakfast, and most men, about 500, says one author. Instead of coffee and half a Danish, try these options:
  • A bowl of cereal with skim milk and a glass of juice or piece of fresh fruit
  • Two slices of toast with peanut butter and a banana
  • An English muffin topped with a scrambled egg and a slice of low-fat cheese
"You need carbs to get your day going,".. Even if you have had plenty of water, good nutrition, the answer may be as simple as getting some  'Melatonin'. This can't be produced in the presence of bright light,"  "If you know you usually feel sleepy around 2:30 or 3 p.m., go out for a walk around 2:15.".. you will be amazed how this makes you feel better.
