Beat the Afternoon Crash

8 energy boosters to help you stay awake at work and energize your mind and body.

Experiment With Breakfast

If you’re waking up to the same old meal every day and then routinely crashing by mid-afternoon, consider a breakfast reboot. In a study published in the International Journal of Food Sciences and Nutrition, high-fiber, carb-rich meals were associated with the highest levels of mental alertness in the hours leading up to lunch. To add fiber and carbs, top a whole-wheat English muffin with natural peanut butter, a sliced banana, and raisins. To increase protein, a whey protein shake will do the trick. Everyone’s needs are different, so the idea is to experiment and find what works for you.
