How to avoid sleeping in the office

Working all day can be exhausting, and nothing's worse than sitting at your desk, only to find your eyelids fluttering and your head nodding off. You’re sitting in class, listening to a lecture and you can’t stop yawning into your book. Or you’re working the day shift but you find yourself napping when your boss isn’t paying attention. If you feel sleepy after lunch you are eating too much and/or not getting enough protein and consuming too much carbohydrate. Cut back your portions, and emphasize proteins and non-starchy vegetables. Feeling sleepy at work is not an uncommon occurrence. If you are looking for solutions to your midday slumbers, try these these tips to help you stay awake if you're falling asleep at work.

1.Most adults need seven to nine hours a night, and teenagers usually need a full nine hours. Block out eight or nine hours for sleep every night.

2. Shut off your television, smartphone, iPad, and computer or keep all electronics out of your bedroom completely a few hours before you sleep. People who have problem sleepiness are often advised to go to bed and get up at the same time every day, including on weekends.
