Feeling better after waking up earlier. Sleeping pattern isn't all there so I'm getting about 5 hours sleep a night but I feel good during the day Most productive day ever today
I can't bear to eat when I've just got up so I usually get up at 7, leave the house at around 8 and then eat breakfast at my desk (Shredded Wheat with Lactofree Whole milk and Splenda). This usually tides me over until around 11 when I'll have an Alpen Light Cereal bar, then lunch at 1, then the usual afternoon slump tends to hit me between 3 and 4 so it's time for a Cadbury Highlights or Twinings fruit tea and a wander in the sub-arctic environment of the Support office (they like to grow icicles from the air con vents) then home at 5, dinner around 6.30.
Go for a nice walk along the seafront through dumpton bay towards viking bay in broadstairs. My parents live in broadstairs and i love walking along the beach when down there and popping into my sisters restaurant on the seafront.
I have a drawer in my desk full of porridge pots (75p each in asda) and have one most mornings as you just add hot water, sets me up for the day. I also have to have the radio on otherwise i cant concentrate, dont have it on loud just on 30 on my pc just to take away the quietness, dont even here it half the time but it takes away the silence and keeps me focused on the task at hand.
I used to have this - I now get up at 6:15 and go to the gym for an hour - then home shower and get breakfast in me at work (around 8:45/9) this this keeps me awake until mid afternoon!
I go for a mid morning walk around the school pop into some of the ICT suites see what the kids are up to they show me cool stuff then I head back to the office and grind on
Gym, Gym, Gym, Gym! Or at least some sort of exercise as others have suggested.
I'm 24, no kids etc and I used to really struggle as well but forcing myself to get up and hit the gym before work has really helped. I get up at about 7, gf drops me at gym for 7:30ish, gym for about 1 hour and then walk to work, quick shower at work (we are fortunate enough to have onsite facilities) and be at my desk wide-eyed and ready to go for 9.
Honestly, I can't recommend morning exercise enough!
I was on Rust yesterday from 1pm until 12.30am, then went to bed as I needed to get up at 7! My brain was that stimulated I tossed and turned for around an hour and a half until I finally dropped off to bed! I'm perfectly fine, I do this regularly on a day to day basis maybe I'm a super human
Drink plenty of water too!
I try to drink a pint before work, usually works for me.
Have a desk like this?
