Fight Afternoon Fatigue with a Modest Dose of Caffeine.

If you find your energy is fading fast after lunch, try sipping on unsweetened green or black tea — a hot mug or a refreshing iced version will do the trick. Tea is ideal for the PM hours because it delivers a moderate hit of caffeine (about half the amount in a cup of coffee), making it less likely to interfere with sleep. If you prefer java, enjoy a cup made with half regular and half decaf. You’ll get that same modest midday jolt and still be ready to hit the sack by bedtime. Or, have half a mug of regular coffee diluted with a very generous pour of skim, soy, or almond milk.
