    I was noticing a regular energy slump in my afternoons. I used to have tall lattes with 2% and sugar, then I downgraded to English breakfast tea with milk and no sugar or just an orange. I feel tons better and I still get some energy at the end of my work day. If I have a run after work I’ll also munch on a boiled egg around 4pm.

    My office in in the sticks, so I literally have to bring anything I need to eat. This helps me as I only bring “scheduled” foods to eat. My problem is after I get home and I have all that good stuff to choose from.

    I have a high stress office job (property claims + major hurricanes = PANIC). Most of my co-workers smoke; they say it helps with the stress and keeps them from killing anyone. I’ve found going on a power walk on my breaks has the same effect. I pound pavement instead of my co-worker’s faces.
