Admit it, we all have experienced trying to stay awake especially on holy hours in the afternoon, we ate and drank whatever foods and drinks that we think will help us be alert and mindful. Yet our heavy eyelids begin to close and before we know it, we’re in dreamland while at work (yikes). You wouldn’t want to be scolded by your boss right? So here are 5 foods that will hopefully help you stay awake.

 

  1. TEA > COFFEE – Most of us thought that coffee is the only thing that’ll help us stay awake but so can tea.

  2. FRUITS > CHIPS – As tasty and addicting chips are, we all know how unhealthy they are. So if you already chose to live a healthy life then start eating fruits for snacks than those chips since we all know the nutrients most fruits have and how they help us stay awake through the day. They help us be healthy-fit, boost our immune system and help us be stronger than before.

  3. DARK CHOCOLATE > MILK CHOCOLATE – We may think that chocolates are the same but no, dark chocolates are much healthier than the others. Most chocolates do help keep us awake but with dark chocolates, they not only keep us awake, they also have antioxidants, they help produce serotonin and endorphin which helps us concentrate and focus high. So the next time you choose a chocolate to eat to help you stay awake and alert, dark chocolate are a much healthier choice.

  4. CHICKEN MEAT – Good news to all chicken lovers like me out there! Thankfully chicken is also a healthy food to eat when you want to stay awake during holy hours in work. Chicken is full of iron and eating enough chicken help boost our energy levels while it helps shoot up our mental activity. So chicken, lessens drowsiness while it helps improve memory and concentration. Hooray for chicken!

  5. SPINACH – Last but definitely not the least food to help us stay awake is spinach, green, leafy and very much healthy spinach. As part of the healthy veggies family, spinach is also one of the many food that will help you stay awake at work. Helps boost energy when you’re feeling drowsy and helps you be alert. Spinach also helps prevent dementia since spinach is full of lutein folate and beta-carotene, so you’ll feel much healthier eating veggies instead of processed food.
