6 Effective Work Break Ideas That’ll Make You Feel Energetic To Work Again

  1. 4

    Interesting point on glucose. I'm a long adopter of fasting and keto diet and I actually think I'm more focused/productive when I'm fasting.

    Maybe I'm the outlier in the research.

    1. 4

      Definitely not alone.

      I have more fight and energy in me when I’m lower on carbs.

      When I eat carbs I find myself getting lethargic.

      1. 1

        Yep. We never know where research comes from.

    2. 2

      Yeah, my experience is similar.

      Even before keto, I noticed that if I had a lunch involving rice or beans, I'd become super sleepy and sluggish the rest of the day.

      Not all calories are created equal.

      1. 2

        Exactly. Keto has really changed my energy levels

    3. 1

      That's an interesting point @leticiasouza! I myself tried following keto few months back.

      Not an outlier but I think it's more about what works for you. But good to hear that you are trying to be focused on self development :)

  2. 1

    Re: power naps... how can one get into a relaxed enough mental state, let alone get meaningful sleep in a window of only 20 minutes, let alone after a cup of coffee?? Can anyone attest to this? That's an enviable superpower.

  3. 1

    Exercising the eyes is so underrated! Thanks for the reminder.
