10 Ways To Stay Awake and Alert During the Day

If you're like most people, you feel as if there aren't enough hours in the day to get everything accomplished. Life can be challenging when juggling different parts ranging from work to family to personal time. For whatever reason, you can find yourself zoning out in the middle of the day, even if you got a solid eight hours of sleep the night before. It's always helpful to know a few techniques for regaining focus and enhancing alertness, especially when you're at work. After all, being more alert means your energy levels are higher and you're more productive. Practice these tips for staying focused and alert.

  1. Supplement Your Diet

Often, trying to eat healthily isn't quite enough to get the nutrition your body requires to function at its best. If you feel you need some extra fuel in your diet, consider adding energy-boosting supplements like Thrive Patch. Vitamin B is critical to good health, including proper immune function, energy and mental focus. 

  1. Eat Protein

Protein is a great way to get a quick boost of energy and improve concentration. Fortunately, there are plenty of convenient ways to get protein on the go. Protein also gives you the feeling of fullness without extra unhealthy calories, such as those from carbs. So when you're feeling hungry or drained, eat a handful of nuts, crackers with peanut butter or a cup of Greek yogurt.

  1. Eat Fiber

Fiber will keep you feeling full, which helps keep your brain focused, as you aren't as likely to be distracted by cravings. In addition, these foods give you sustained energy because they take longer to digest. 

  1. Eat Whole Grains

Whole grains are good for keeping you feeling fuller longer and providing long-lasting energy. They're also great for maintaining mental sharpness. 

  1. Eat Healthy Snacks

Many people every day experience the infamous "mid-day slump." It's tempting to grab a candy bar from the snack machine, but sugary foods can drain your energy fast. So instead, choose protein-rich foods, fresh fruits or raw vegetables.  

  1. Breathe Deeply

It may be surprising to you, but concentrating on breathing deeply can not only relieve stress but it can also give the brain a charge, making focusing easier. This exercise can also enhance your mood. 

  1. Take a Power Nap

Even if you're getting good sleep at night, it's easy to become sleepy during the day, especially after lunch. So during one of your mid-day breaks, take a 10- to 20-minute power nap. It can help you take on the rest of the day with more energy and alertness without interfering with your bedtime routine. 

  1. Visit With Friends

When you're feeling sluggish during the day, get a conversation going with someone. Conversing about an interesting topic can rejuvenate the brain and give it a boost while diminishing fatigue. Even better, recruit a co-worker or two to take a walk with you during a break. Physical activity can also give you some much-needed energy, so it's even more beneficial when you're walking and conversing with friends. 

  1. Move Around

Make sure to get up and move around regularly, at least every two hours. For example, walking to the breakroom or taking a short 10-minute walk outside can get you away from your desk and your assignment for a few minutes. This will be a quick pick-me-up and refresh your mind to keep working. 

  1. Get Plenty of Sleep

Getting an adequate amount of sleep is essential for every aspect of your life. A vital key to sleep hygiene is to keep your sleep schedule consistent as much as possible, going to bed at the same time each night and getting up at the same time each day. You're sure to notice more energy and focus and maybe even enhanced creativity. 

Whatever your daytime routine, maintaining mental focus and energy can have numerous benefits. Productivity and creativity are just a couple of advantages, but you'll also find that you simply feel better overall. Begin implementing these practices today, and you'll quickly start seeing a significant difference in your daily life.
