At work, when you're one of the walking dead Coffee won't cure that late afternoon slump (blasphemy, I know). Instead of yawning at your desk, use your breath as a substitute for your next shot of espresso. Sit up straight in your desk, feet firmly planted on the floor and inhale and exhale rapidly through your nose, keeping your mouth closed but relaxed. Your breaths in and out should be equal in duration, but as short as possible. Try for three in-and-out breath cycles per second. Disclaimer #1: This is a noisy breathing exercise so you may want to take it somewhere private. Disclaimer #2: Don't do this for more than 15 seconds on your first try or you might pass out (which is counterproductive if you're trying to stay awake). Slowly increase your time by five seconds or so every time you tip into zombie zone until you reach a full minute.
