  • Sounds like you are having a drop in your blood sugar. It's pretty common really. Many people have that sleepy feeling in the afternoon. Often, they drink coffee to compensate. You can have a snack like yogurt, nuts, fruit etc. and you will probably feel better. If you eliminate sugar and white flour, you will sustain a steady blood sugar and probably not have this in the afternoon. Of course, this is just my opinion and you should see a physician to confirm this.

  • Are you pregnant because that could be your answer.

  • This is not uncommon. It may have something to do with what you eat for lunch. If you eat too much refined sugar or simple carbs, your blood sugar could be dropping at this time of day. Try eating more protein or eating a snack with protein around 2:30.

  • For me it is 4:00. I get drowsy and hungry. A glass of milk or some cheese and crackers might help this dip in energy.

  • I take a walk around this time of day. :)
