  • Adequate hydration by drinking at least six eight ounce glasses of water every day and limiting caffeine intake (coffee, cola, and tea).
  • Eat a healthy diet and avoid a drop in blood sugar by not skipping meals.
  • Get regular exercise and maintain good posture while sitting at work.
  • Maintain a regular sleep schedule, if possible, even on the weekends. Go to bed and wake up at the same time.
