Instead of reaching for yet another cup of coffee to perk you up, try this: While sitting in a chair, lift your right knee and touch it with your left hand. Repeat on the other side. Do the sequence quickly 10 times. Sluggishness often results when one side of the brain isn't being stimulated. Since the left hemisphere of the brain controls the right side of the body and vice versa, this trick will bring balanced energy to both sides of the brain.
