How to Beat The Afternoon Blues, Dunkin' Style

Yawning at 2pm? Feeling unmotivated to get that big project done? Looks like you have a case of the afternoon blues. Check out our tips to help you keep running all afternoon long!

1. Keep on with Cold Brew

Sometimes a second cup of coffee is exactly what you need to get through the afternoon blues. For a bold and energizing choice, try a Cold Brew. Cold Brew is crafted by hand in small batches, prepared by steeping a special blend of coffee in cold water for twelve hours to deliver a rich, smooth cold coffee.

4. Get moving and stretch out!

Another great way to beat the afternoon slump is to get up and stretch out! Take a walk around the office or do some stretches by your desk. Check out a few great stretches below:

  • The “I Don’t Know”: Inhale deeply and shrug your shoulders, lifting them high up to your ears. Hold. Release and drop. Repeat 3 times.

  • Wrist Air Circles: Clench both fists, stretching both hands out in front of you. Make circles in the air, first in one direction, to the count of ten. Then reverse the circles and shake out your hands.

  • Hammy Stretch: Remain seated and extend one leg outward. Reach toward your toes and hold for 10-30 seconds. Repeat on the other side.
