We all know what it’s like to hit an afternoon slump. You’ve been working all morning, just had lunch, and there’s no time for a nap. Instead, many people reach for caffeine in the form of coffee, energy drinks, or even chocolate. What many aren’t considering are the effects this has on their sleep later that night.

A better option than an afternoon caffeine kick is an equally delicious coffee alternative, without the spike and crash. Today, we’re sharing more about what can lead to an afternoon slump, and how to avoid it with Dandy Blend.


Each of us has an internal clock, known as our circadian rhythm. This is our body’s way of flowing through our days – feeling energized in the morning, and getting sleepy at night. Another one of the dips in energy levels we can experience tends to happen in the afternoon, between 1:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. If you’ve ever heard of certain countries carving out time for afternoon naps, often known as siestas, this is why!

Other factors can impact feeling tired in the afternoon, like being dehydrated, eating a high carbohydrate lunch, or not getting enough sleep the night before.


If you tend to reach for an afternoon coffee, and have trouble sleeping, this can then lead to your afternoon slump. It’s like a vicious cycle. Continuing to reach for the coffee each day may contribute to it. Instead, try opting for a caffeine-free alternative, like Dandy Blend.

You can prepare it the same way you would your go-to coffee drink, and it won’t give you the spike and crash of a coffee. Nor will it interfere with your sleep. Plus, some of our customers have said they do feel a smooth burst of energy after drinking Dandy Blend.

Try this hack for a few days in a row and see how you feel. You may never even remember feeling that afternoon slump at all.

Happy Sipping!
