  • Make sure to have enough of protein. It gives you more strength and energy. Choose products high in protein for your breakfast or lunch, for example, yoghurt, milk, cheese, black bread or eggs.
  • Drowsiness can be caused by too big portion of your lunch too. Choose a light lunch instead: fresh salad with lean meat, soup or vegetable stew.
  • Many people have coffe break in the afternoon. Coffee is often accompanied with a piece of pie or candy. Sugar raises your blood pressure a little bit which at first provides you with more energy. However, after an hour or even less, this energy goes down and you feel even worse.
