5 Tips for Combatting Mid-Day Sleepiness
Sleep is a hard thing to come by sometimes, when life gets in the way. But on nights when you are able to jump into bed at a reasonable hour, you wake up prepared to take on the workday. Early to bed, early to rise right? You come in wide awake and ready, and generally the first few hours of your day aren’t lacking in the energy department. A couple of hours pass and you’ve had your lunch break, but soon after your energy suddenly drops, and you begin dozing off behind your computer screen as your eyelids become heavier. You start to wonder why you’re getting sleepy despite having gotten an adequate amount of sleep. Sound familiar?
