Do you get the "3 o'clock" laziness episode?

Some workers, at around 2-3 pm get a feeling of extreme sleepiness and laziness and wish they can get a nap!

This (3 o'clock lull) as they wall it in the west, can be due to dehydration, so drink lots of water!


  • Bring a 0.75 to 1 L bottle of water to work and try to finish it by lunch, and then fill it up again and finish that by 3 p.m.
  • Drinking an adequate amount of water - eight to 10 glasses every day - can help keep you hydrated.
  • Many foods are also good sources of water; fruits like oranges, grapefruit, grapes, watermelon, and apples can help keep you healthy and hydrated.
  • Set your computer alarm to go off so you remember it's time to refill.
