4 ways to get out of the afternoon blues

In association with our friends at FOND Bone Broth

In theory, avoiding afternoon blues is simple: get enough sleep, keep your stress load reasonable, eat balanced meals throughout the day, and don’t overindulge on caffeine. Then there’s the reality: Haha. Also, part of the reason some of us get tired after lunch could be in our nature, or at least our circadian rhythm.

On days when the post-lunch dip comes for whatever reason, there are four strategies that work for us.

1

Nourish

    Depression often occurs because your meals have not been balanced, either from a lack of protein or from relying too much on carbohydrates to fill you up. A little snack can give you a boost. One of our favorite things to do is take a sip of FOND’s warm bone broth. We consider it an improved substitute for an afternoon latte, which works for two reasons: It is caffeine-free, to prevent you from continual drops in energy, which could further disrupt your circadian rhythm. And each serving has about eight grams of protein to keep you going. There are eight amazing flavors to choose from, and lately we’ve been loving the Spring cleaning“That Lemony Tang is invigorating and the ending is so clean.” FOND uses grass-raised organic chicken bones and sustainably sourced organic vegetables, herbs and aromatics. We also cook cereals with the bone broth to eat throughout the week. Makes any bowl of cereal or salad that much better.

MOVE

Moving your body in the afternoon can help with energy and make you feel more alert. Ideally, do it outdoors in sunlight with fresh air. It doesn’t have to be a full-blown exercise; try walking around the block when you start to feel sluggish. Adding weights to the ankles and wrists can up the ante. If you can’t get out, try moving closer to a window to get some natural light, and if you can open it to catch the breeze, all the better. Switching to a standing desk after lunch can help your body engage in the days you’re tethered to your computer.

GET SOME REST

Sometimes it’s not worth fighting for. You are exhausted and sleep is what your body needs. If you can take a nap, try to keep it short and on the earlier side; a long or late nap will likely continue to cause problems with your natural sleep cycle.

If you’re at work and you’re not going to get away with going to sleep, try a short stress-relieving activity, like stretching, meditation or breathing.
