Avoid This in The Afternoon for Better Sleep

Mid-afternoon crash?

It’s tempting to go for coffee, but don’t do it!

Afternoon coffee will mess with your sleep and perpetuate the afternoon drowsiness.

The average half-life of caffeine is 4-6 hours which means that half the caffeine in your 3 pm coffee is still in your system at 9pm.

Instead of a caffeine bump, get moving.

Go for a walk or even do some jumping jacks by your desk.

Two more tips to for better sleep & overall alertness include:

  • Getting 10 min of morning sunshine within 60 min of waking.
  • Delaying your morning caffeine by 60-90 min.

These things may seem difficult, but I promise if you give them a try, your day time alertness and sleep will improve!
