Ever experienced that mid-afternoon fog? Blame it on your circadian rhythm, which, much like the nighttime tiredness, makes you less alert in the afternoon. Between 1 and 4 p.m., melatonin, the sleep hormone, is at its peak, accompanied by a dip in body temperature and serotonin levels, leading to pronounced fatigue.
But here's the good news – there are effective ways to boost your energy without resorting to sugar and caffeine.
Get Some Sun
Try Box Breathing
Take a Power Nap
Remember, no amount of naps can substitute for a proper night's rest. At Oxa, we've taken this to heart by developing the world's first wearable breathing coach for better sleep and immediate stress relief. Unlike traditional wellness products or meditation apps, Oxa monitors your heart rate, respiration, and movements in real-time, tailoring personalized breathing exercises to your rhythms.
