5 Tricks To Help You Work Through the Commute
1.) Don’t Eat Too Much
Try not to eat a gigantic amount at lunch.
Stay away from the coma inducing meals that can leave you unconscious and mess with your energy levels.
It can be tempting to go for that cheeseburger or two slices of pizza but chances are they might hurt you more than they help you in the long run.
