Does afternoon feel like a better time to nap than work? Actually, some lifestyle experts say a 15- or 20-minute "power nap" after lunch isn't a bad idea.

If you're afraid you'll sleep the entire afternoon away, set the alarm on your watch. Here are some more tips to get you through that mid-afternoon slump:

- Try to avoid foods like turkey and dairy products during the day. They're rich in the amino acid tryptophan, which can cause sleepiness.

- Take breaks. If you're working on a huge project, you'll be more productive and less tired if you take regular short breaks instead of relentlessly plowing ahead.

- Drink water. Dehydration drains energy. Drink a glass of water in the morning and any other time you need a pick-me-up.

- Eat complex carbs. A starchy snack like a bagel or banana will give you a quick energy boost.

- Jog in place, stretch at your desk or go for a brisk walk. Moving around will get the blood flowing and carry oxygen to the tissues, so you'll feel energized and alert.

- Get enough sleep. Most people need seven to nine hours of sleep a night to feel their best.
