Banish the 4 P.M. Energy Blahs

Even a few minutes of exercise (a brisk walk around the mall, climbing a few flights of stairs) can be an instant wake-up call. "You'll get the blood flowing and feel more alert," says Westcott. Another option: Do a yoga inversion pose like standing forward bend (hanging your head below your waist). "It changes both your blood flow and your perception, which can be highly invigorating," says Sara Ivanhoe, creator and instructor of Sara Ivanhoe's 20-Minute Yoga Makeover video. Finally, watch what you eat: "Many women skip breakfast and then eat larger meals later, which can make you sluggish," says Karen Reznik Dolins, EdD, director of nutrition at Altheus, a sports performance center in Rye, New York. To keep blood sugar steady, eat a mix of protein and complex carbs, like fruit and low-fat yogurt, every three to four hours.
