It’s midday but feels like five o’clock- that’s fatigue. Fatigue creeps in when you’re dehydrated. To beat it, drink up water- lots of it. Make it a habit to keep a bottle of water at your desk or bag; ensure that you sip throughout the day.
That eight hours’ rule? Observe it! You’ll be able to make smarter choices the next day because your mind and body is fresh and alert.
