Most busy professionals understand the brain drain that occurs halfway through the afternoon. When you hit the wall late in the workday, it’s tough to regain your productivity and cross things off your to-do list. Our Bay City Connections associates use a few simple strategies to keep their energy levels high through the entire day, and we would like to share some of them here.

If it’s feasible for you, standing at your desk is a great way to ward off the afternoon energy slump. Working on your feet is ideal for a quick boost, because it provides rapid rejuvenation both mentally and physically. If you don’t have a standing desk, opt for the open areas in your office or go for a brisk walk around the building.

Sometimes it’s also a good idea to take a step back and re-evaluate what you need to get done on a given day. We at Bay City Connections recommend that you give yourself some space to organize your priorities and determine what you really need to get accomplished before you leave the office and what you can take care of later in the evening. If you discover that you are more productive in the mornings and late night hours, take advantage of that fact as often as you can.

Bay City Connections’s team encourages you to apply these strategies and remain productive through every afternoon energy slump.
