Isn’t that what weddingbee is for? I used to have the same issue, but recenlty I started taking brisk walks during my lunch hour. It helps to break up the day, and it’s a great way to get some outside time and excercise.

Really?! I’m the opposite! However, I usually have foods that are concentrated to the senses other than just my taste buds. Today I had an orange dipped in tobasco sauce (seriously, try it) and the smell kick starts me right over again! 🙂

I get like that, especially in the winter when I do not leave the office for lunch. I find that I feel best when I go for a walk on my lunch break.  I’m not sure if it’s the sunlight or the exercise that helps… but being outside tends to perk me up.

@ktisthatbees: I’m the same way. I do eat very spicy stuff (not going as far as an orange dipped in tabasco though) and very concentrated flavors, I’ve taken walks, done everything but I get it too. Today’s a little different, came back, sat down in my chair and completely tensed up and it really doesn’t help the situation.

@ktisthatbees: It’s easier than you think. I work in downtown DC, so it doesn’t get much more busy and crowded than that. I keep a pair of flats at my desk and change.

Try to cut carbs from your lunch.  It sounds hard, but I promise it made all the difference in the world for my “post lunch slump.”  I used to eat a sandwich every day and would be exhausted after lunch.  Now I try to eat non-starchy soup, salad, or meat and cheese roll-ups instead of a sandwich.  (I still eat carbs for breakfast and dinner…)  Try it for a few days and see how you feel!
