The afternoon comes and you're dragging. Naturally, you turn to a cup of coffee or some other caffeine source for a quick pick-me-up.
That pick-me-up helps you concentrate on serving your customers better. But, it also sets off a chain reaction that ultimately makes it harder to focus.
That's because caffeine takes about 24 hours to work its way out of your system. So, your afternoon caffeine is still buzzing in your veins when you try to sleep that night. Your sleep quality declines as a result which leads to more fatigue the next day.
That leads to, you guessed it, that familiar sluggish feeling the next afternoon.
Skip the caffeine the next time you feel tired in the afternoon. Try some light exercise instead coupled with a healthy snack. Bake that into your routine for a few days and you might be surprised at how much more energy you have!
That's energy that can go towards exceeding customer expectations with outstanding service!
