We all know how hard it can be to ramp up productivity after you’ve taken a lunch break. Don’t get sucked into the afternoon slump! Instead, follow these tips for boosting afternoon productivity:

  • Eat better - Things such as caffeine and sugar may give you a quick energy boost in the morning, but they will cause fluctuations in your blood sugar that can result in becoming drowsy or tired later in the day. Eat 3 balanced meals a day and only eat healthy snacks.
  • Take vitamin B-12 - Vitamin B-12 actually contains 8 different vitamins, all of which help maintain a high energy level. Most energy drinks consist of B-12 and caffeine.  You should avoid these drinks and take the supplement by itself with water instead.
  • Go for a walk - Take ten minutes around lunch time to go for a walk outside the office. Fresh air and exercise will help lift your energy.
