How to deal with sleepiness at work? (video)

Absent-mind­ed­ness, prob­lems with con­cen­tra­tion, the head refus­es to “turn on” and each thought is giv­en with incred­i­ble dif­fi­cul­ty … Accord­ing to sta­tis­tics, every 5 employ­ee who works in the office faces this sit­u­a­tion. If you are famil­iar with such sen­sa­tions, per­haps you should think about the rea­sons that lead to such unpleas­ant results.

Chron­ic lack of sleep, insom­nia, lack of vit­a­mins and sun­light can lead to drowsi­ness in the work­place.

Dream and career

If the caus­es of sleep dis­tur­bance are phys­i­o­log­i­cal, then in most cas­es they are elim­i­nat­ed, either com­plete­ly, or can be treat­ed.

Experts are sure: the most effec­tive way to com­bat drowsi­ness in the work­place is to get enough sleep!

If the rea­son is dif­fer­ent, for exam­ple, monot­o­nous and monot­o­nous office work which may well lead to drowsi­ness, you will have to look for a solu­tion. For exam­ple: a new job that will inspire and where you can real­ize your­self at 100%. If this option is too car­di­nal for you, you should think about activ­i­ties that will bring moral plea­sure. So you can work and devel­op at the same time. For exam­ple: mak­ing jew­el­ry, mod­el­ing clothes. Yes, what­ev­er.

By the way, it is not uncom­mon for a hob­by to grow into a suc­cess­ful busi­ness.

Sure­ly, after a busy day at work, you can’t fall asleep for a long time. This is quite a com­mon occur­rence. In this case, it is worth learn­ing to switch atten­tion from work moments to home ones, and also learn to relax.

The main thing before going to bed is to be able to switch from activ­i­ty and wake­ful­ness to relax­ation.

In order to fall asleep faster, you need at least one hour not to engage in active men­tal activ­i­ty. The sec­ond pre­req­ui­site is the rit­u­al of falling asleep: you need to stick to one time, sleep in one place, com­fort­able and con­ducive to sleep. Before going to bed, it is not rec­om­mend­ed to read and watch TV. It is best to fall asleep in a room with the lights off. Week­ends should nev­er be spent in bed. If a per­son spends the whole day on the couch, he will still feel sleepy. And if dur­ing the day you fall asleep, then wake up, this will lead to sleep dis­tur­bance and make sleep less qual­i­ty.

Bore­dom, drowsi­ness and lack of involve­ment in the work process of a phys­i­cal­ly healthy work­er mean that a per­son has nei­ther inter­nal nor exter­nal moti­va­tion to do this work, experts say.

Change of activity

Exter­nal “dop­ing” in the form of tech­niques, invig­o­rat­ing means and pro­ce­dures does not always solve the sit­u­a­tion. Psy­chol­o­gists are sure that the best solu­tion is to find a job that in itself “ignites”. It’s inter­est­ing that tech­niques to cheer up dur­ing the work­ing day, have a tem­po­rary and unsta­ble effect, as they work with a con­se­quence, but not with a cause. If every day a per­son feels lethar­gic, uncol­lect­ed, but at the same time phys­i­cal­ly healthy, then in this case it is nec­es­sary to work with inter­nal and exter­nal moti­va­tion. How to do it? First you need to answer a few sim­ple ques­tions. For exam­ple: what kind of activ­i­ty gives you plea­sure? Did you have such an expe­ri­ence when you did some­thing and received moral plea­sure, felt your impor­tance? What can you do now to under­stand what is valu­able to you and what is not? By answer­ing these ques­tions, you can under­stand what to do next.
