3 Sure shot tips to stop sleepiness / drowsiness after Lunch and improve health too !!

Tip1

Limit the carbohydrate portions in your lunch. The refined grains in processed foods get digested quickly that results in blood sugar spike and dip contributing to low energy levels. Choose to eat more energizing meals that includes more iron (leafy green veggies), lean proteins (lean meat, fish and eggs) and complexed carbohydrates (whole grains and legumes).

Eating a smaller lunch with snacks in the morning and afternoon will keep your blood sugar levels balanced throughout the day.

Try not to consume more and more sugar and fats present in processed foods in order to avoid energy crash.

Tip2

Physical activity improves blood flow, providing oxygen and nutrients to muscle tissue and naturally
increasing energy. Carl Bazil, MD, PhD, director of the Division of Epilepsy and Sleep at Columbia University, recommends exercising before afternoon drowsiness kicks in—stretch, take the stairs instead of the elevator, walk around your building.

Simply getting away from your desk can re-energize.
