- Breathe deeply. If possible, go outside and get some fresh air, even if it's cold.
- Drink some water. Dehydration contributes to fatigue. Most people remember the importance of drinking water in summer's heat, but staying hydrated in winter is just as important.
- Stand up and stretch. Shake out your legs, reach of the ceiling, or better yet, the sky. If you can, get some exercise. Do jumping jacks, jog in place for a minute or step out for a quick stroll.
- Look out the window. It can help ease eye strain and natural light helps to increase feelings of wakefulness.
- If you're hungry, have a little snack. Food is fuel. Skip the simple carbs though, they can lead to an even bigger energy crash. Choose complex carbs and protein, such as a handful of nuts and fibrous fruit, like an apple.
