It’s 3 o’clock in the afternoon and you’ve had a busy day. You’ve managed to sit down for a bit to relax – and your eyelids are slowly closing. Your mind drifts off. It feels rather pleasant. Sleep is waiting just around the corner. But hang on a minute! You’re at work, and a nap is a no-no. Falling asleep at the office desk is generally not considered a great career move. Unless you are working for an exceptional organisation, the boss won’t be impressed. So you force yourself to get up, grab a coffee, and something sweet. After all, there is nothing like the two punch combination of sugar and caffeine to kick a tired brain back up a gear or two.
If that’s what you are doing, you are going to wear yourself out sooner or later.
The question is – is there a better way?
