Just follow few tricks and overcome your low productivity at work in the post lunch hours.

 Sleeping at desk

Give a Healthy Start to Your Day 

Having a good and filling breakfast is important. Research shows that people who have heavy breakfast are more active and attentive compared to those who avoid it. The low mood and tiredness can be avoided to a great extent by having a healthy and nutritious breakfast.

 

Avoid Junk Food   

Junk food does nothing apart from increasing drowsiness. Watch everything you eat, making sure you avoid foodstuff like fries, pasta, etc. which increase your insulin level ultimately inducing sleep. Increase your intake of beans, green vegetables like cabbage which takes less time to digest compared to heavy food like pasta.

 

Avoid Going to Your Work Table Immediately After Lunch

A walk after lunch can really help you breathe in some fresh air and make you active. It also facilitates proper digestion and enhances your concentration and work speed as your mind is refreshed.

 

Get Proper Sleep at Night

If you do not let your body get enough sleep, no action might work to eliminate your lethargies. You need at least 6 to7 hours of sleep for your mind and body to function properly.

 

Avoid Having Too Much Coffee

You may think of having coffee to feel fresh but too much of coffee can turn out to be unhealthy. Instead drink water, though people rarely do so. This not only helps you to be active but keeps you away from the problems of dehydration.
