Sounds familiar. Try setting a clock to beep every hour...and get up and do something physical for a few minutes. Walk the stairs, go to the mailroom, stretch in your office, lift 5 lbs weights/upper body strengthening...but get up and move.

Yes, getting up and moving around is a good thing. I sit at a desk and unless my mind is going 100 miles/hour then I will get tired. When I do get tired I get up and move around that helps.

Just got back to my desk as I hit a tired spell that I for sure could have just closed my eyes at my desk and fallen asleep. I have a break in about an hour at 2:30 which will help more. Got a glass of water as well.

The most common cause of daytime drowsiness (especially in Americans) is dehydration. You should try to keep a water bottle with you throughout the day and continue to drink a little bit at a time thoughout the entire day. Soft drinks are a large contributor to dehydration in Americans (since they tend to drink them alot and treat it as a water replacement.) So it's a good thing that you have cut down your intake of soft drink.

At first this will cause excess urination. This is not because you are drinking too much water, but rather because you are used to drinking too little water. You should adjust to the additional water intake over time and stop producing so much urine, as well as feeling better about yourself in general.

If your urine is generally a strong yellow colour it is a sign that you are not drinking enough water. You will find when you up your water intake that your urine has a more watery colour, do not be concerned with this.

Just on the issue of soft drink, I advise you against replacing regular soft drink with diet softdrink, as it has been documented to cause mood swings, headaches, etc. Personally I believe that regular soft drinks are better for you, despite the excess of sugar.

Sorry if any of this has been said already, I didn't have time to read past the first page as I'm trying to write an essay.

I think there is a lot of truth to what you say about dehydration being the reason for me feeling sleepy. I am drinking more water now, in fact I just sip on water all day long, after my morning coffee. I only drink a diet soft drink with lunch and it's caffeine free, so no caffeine crash to worry about. Thanks for the info .
