Experts say you can beat afternoon fatigue by doing simple exercises that pep you up by relieving muscle tension.
Psychotherapist Jaqueline Ferguson suggests these exercises.
- Head rolls: While you are seated comfortably, gently drop your head to your chest, then slowly rotate your chin to right shoulder and back to your chest five times. Then do five head rolls to your left side. Repeat three times for a total of fifteen head rolls on each side. This takes 30 seconds and relieves neck tension.
- Shoulder shrugs: While still seated, gently raise youe right shoulder to your head six times. The repeat with your left shoulder. Then rotate your right shoulder front to back three times. Do the same with your left shoulder. This takes 30 seconds and relieves shoulder muscle tension.
- Waist bends: While seated, let your chin touch your chest. With arms hanging at your sides, bend from the waist as far as you comfortably can. Repeat six times.
