Whats a great afternoon pick me up?

Postby Tarz » Tue Mar 11, 2008 2:59 pm

Right now i am hitting my mid arvo slump. i am bored at my desk and need something to wake me up. i want to avoid turning to diet coke for a caffine hit. I don't drink tea or coffee. i can't always go for a quick walk (plus my shoe broke about 30 minutes ago) what can i do to wake me up. my eyelids have gotten heavy and i can't concentrate. i have work to do just no energy to do it. Any suggestions?

Have a piece of fruit if you can. The natural sugars wake you up more than caffeine does and all the good nutrients will keep you going through the afternoon.

Fair enough. What about some deep breathing and a bit of stretching? Just get up and shake your limbs a bit to get the blood moving again. Maybe that will work.

I've been trying that, but as soon as i sit back down and look at what i am supposed to be doing the eyelids suddenly feel like little weights. i think its just a really boring task that i do every Tuesday. And probably has a bit to do with my really late game of netball causing me to get home after 11pm last ight. I think i will just try to rip through it and knock off early, get to the gym and do some physical exercise. There is a body attack class at 5.30 i might try to get in to. Thanks for the suggestions though Ali

I have read somewhere that an apple has the same effect as a cup of coffee does to wake u up.....
and you could try jumping up and down or do some jumping jacks.....might look weird to others but....they just might think ur
a crazy interesting person who goes nuts to wake herself up......
