No matter whether old or young, male or female - from the hardest worker to the desk man - many people experience fatigue after lunch at the latest, which reduces their performance and concentration. All energy, it is commonly said, sinks into the digestive tract. The more opulent the meal, the greater the need for sleep.

But even those who follow the advice to eat only a "light meal" can often hardly resist the temptation to stretch out all four of them for at least five minutes and take a nap.

No longer "burnt out"
Not (only) the full stomach, but especially the brain calls a lunch break as experiments at Harvard University (USA) showed. Especially in tasks that require high concentration and during learning phases, the brain can perform better if regular sleep breaks are taken. Sleep strengthens what you have learned and makes you ready to learn new things. It prevents one from feeling "burned out", because "sleep is for the whole person what winding is for the clock" (Schopenhauer).

Does not apply does not apply
And those who can find neither rest to eat nor time to sleep at noon due to the hectic pace and stress of everyday life should certainly take a break, because good food and healthy sleep increase both joie de vivre and joie de vivre as well as performance.

For awake minds
Eating, drinking and sleeping are the most elementary basic needs of human life, which cannot replace each other.

Some "midnight orgies" on the refrigerator may also be a replacement for lack of sleep.

If you sleep sufficiently (neither too much nor too little), you don't have to fight fatigue with chocolate, coffee, tea or cola.
