    You feel sleepy due to overeating...as too much blood went to your stomach to digest it and that is when your head lack of blood = feel sleepy. try to eat 7/10 full. you will feel better during that period.

    All we need is something like "Work Aphrodisiac" or "Tiger Pills for Work".

    One pill after lunch will keep us high on the job. Of course the pill has to wear out after 6pm. If not wives won't be too happy to see us still high about the job.

    Wat du U tink?

    I usually feel sleepy after lunch.

    Usually around 3-6pm.
    My daily dosage of "kopi O kosong gao" seems to help at times.
    But sometimes, i seem immune to it.

    I used to be like that coz of a sedentary and unhealthy lifestyle, as in gorge yourself siao on food during lunch, quite a number of times even went for spinelli coffee to whack sinful stuff. Later I would feel very sleepy when i settled down after 2pm.

    It is due to a number of factors, like your body being flooded by a myriad of nutrients esp glucose during digestion, other reasons being you are hardwired to have metabolism slowed down during that period (animals in the wild do that too), a lot of the emphasis/resources is also going to your digestive system to digest the food. This combination of factors is what makes this unique to that time of the day, you do not really feel such effects at night from 8pm (though if your bio-clock dictates that you sleep early and wake up early that is another matter....hehe).

    After I started going (most times during 30mins before I lunch) to gym and do cardio as well as weights, I do not get such effects anymore. Basically you are fitter so can "dong" better, also your basic metabolic rate is much higher during rest as your body is trying to repair muscles and stuff, so it does not dip too much and make you sleepy.

    Actually a prolonged sedentary lifestyle is the base of many health problems later when you grow old. So do start exercising. It also has the added benefit of aiding you lift your tele-lenses for long periods. Just last 2 weeks I was shooting those Chinese New Year fashion/costume/cultural shows at Raffles City and I did not have any problems at all even for a 40 min show with a body, flash and 70-200/2.8 lens. Just think, if you are fitter and can lift and endure weights much better, your 1.2kg lens becomes a 400-500g one. Wah, FOC! hehe...

    How I wished there is a gym conveniently located near the office. But gym after work still better than no gym or exercise at all.

    With big lens, better use a monopod - got muscles, but after 30 minutes, tends to get cam shake readily. 2.8lens + cam + flash > 2kg liao.
    I love big car, big house, big lenses, but small apertures.

    hehe.....work in companies where they have gyms in the office (eg recreation club). Mine has... Else stuff like California is so ex!

    Monopod slows things down leh.... Fashion shoots still ok, but just found out those costume dances cannot. hehe....
    But my pt is, it does help a lot if you work out.

    Why do I have to suffer this way everyday? Well, TGIF!
    ?Used to feel that way. But after I skipped lunch or having a light lunch, I felt like restless and sleepy in the afternoon.
