Avoid the Sugar Blues
If you find you are regularly tired and lethargic in the afternoons it may have something to do with your eating habits. If you are taking too much sugar through sweets and sugary drinks you may be spiking your blood sugar levels and suffering the ‘sugar blues’. This gives you periods of extra energy followed by periods of low energy and lethargy. Try avoiding the sweets and eat more fruit in between meals, you may be surprised at how more alert you feel in the afternoons.
