We’ve all felt the “afternoon blahs” — those times when your “get-up-and-go” got up and left. From getting enough sleep to reading a book, these 10 tips can help you find more energy throughout the day.

  1. Get enough sleep. First and foremost, make sure you can get a solid night’s sleep. If you’re tired, it makes the days drag on.
  2. Wake up with a workout. Even simple stretching can help, but getting your blood moving first thing in the morning can help energize you all day.
  3. Squeeze in a nap. Don’t sleep on the job, but if you can grab even a 10- or 20-minute siesta in your car or in an empty conference room, it can go a long way toward perking you up.
  4. Laugh. Try to make time in the day for a smile, whether it’s a funny video or a joke of the day. Laughter is a natural energizer.
  5. Take a walk. Use your break time to get out of the office for a few minutes. Walk around the parking lot or down the street. A little fresh air is a big help.
  6. Read a book at lunch. Escape into a good book or a short story while you eat. It’s a good way to refresh your mind.
  7. Drop the baggage. Resolve conflicts with a boss or coworker and try to let go of grudges. You’ll be surprised at what a difference it makes.
  8. Do a coworker a favor. Lend them a hand or just a kind word. Just this simple act can work wonders for your energy.
  9. Call a friend. Give a close friend a call during a break, even if it’s just to say “hi.” The interaction can help recharge your batteries.
  10. Like your job. Nothing saps your energy like doing something you hate. So figure out what you enjoy and find a way to make that your job.
