Eight hours is always said to be the optimal amount of sleep; something we should all be aiming for. And while many of us get by on seven, sometimes even that isn’t possible. Whether because of a restless night, a social event, a period of work pressures, or simply because we have an early flight to catch, sometimes, with some degree of apprehension, we have to accept that four-to-five hours are all we can hope for. And while we can revive ourselves with luxurious complementary health treatments, such as gay massage, it helps to be informed about all the ways we can boost our flagging energy levels the following day. Just because we under-slept, doesn’t mean we have to endure a day of elevated emotions, dark moodiness, constant yawning, weeping eyes and heavy head. We can have a strategy and tools in place to help us keep going and make the best of it. There are all kinds of ways to help you power through the day after a bad night, so you can still apply yourself and make progress with whatever challenges you face. Here’s how:

Get up and immediately exercise

It sounds counter-intuitive, but getting out of bed and going for a 5km run can really lift your energy levels, leaving you feeling bright, clear-headed and as sharp as you would after proper rest. If you’re not a runner, simply swap the run for an equivalent work-out of the kind you prefer and you’ll immediately have undone some of the damage of that four-hour night.

So much guidance these days tell us to ditch the coffee and go for lemon juice in hot water. But after a night of poor sleep, the caffeine can really lift your energy, boost your ability to concentrate and keep your feeling aware and alert. So have that cup of coffee in the morning and then have at least one more, perhaps by the afternoon.

Food

Don’t go for heavy, stodgy comfort food full of sugar and bad carbs. That’s a surefire way to feel exhausted by lunchtime. Instead, opt for light and healthy meals and snacks. Complex carbs, protein, berries and fruit, oats, vegetables, lean meats, fish, nuts, eggs – all these will help you feel energetic and vital instead of sluggish and depressed. If there’s time at lunch, dash out for gay massage London, and then you’ll be back at your desk for an afternoon in which you’ll excel yourself.

Breaks

Making sure you head out for gay massage London will also give you the chance for a brisk, outdoors walk at lunchtime, and this is yet another way to refresh yourself as the day unfolds, helping to shift any lingering feelings of sleepiness.

Don’t stay late

On a day when you’re operating on a sleep deficit, it’s all the more important to stick to what your contract says. Don’t stay on late, effectively doing extra work for free. Just do the work you’re paid for and then leave briskly.
