The time when we feel the most upbeat—or so say our tweets. A study in the journal Scienceanalyzed the Twitter feeds of 2.4 million people in 84 countries. The findings: Users are in good spirits in the morning. That’s when the words agree, awesome, and super (or their foreign equivalents) are tweeted most often. Things go downhill as the day progresses, bottoming out between 3 P.M and 4 P.M., when annoy and afraid saturate cyberspace. What a tangled (worldwide) web we weave!

4 pm Slump
Many days around 4pm, I am in desperate need of a quick cat nap.
But, trying to avoid a crazy situation like Charlie tying Walker up on his lawn mower and taking him for a spin around the block, I reach for an alternative.
Something that gives me a quick energy boost so I can be a good mama to these little guys.
I didn't get the memo to put my hands in my mouth. And, yes, there are 2 baby ducks in that box.
I was reading March 2012's edition of Real Simple, and realized that I'm not alone.
6 A.M. to 9 A.M.
So even tweeters are feeling the 4pm slump.
I've thought up 5 ways to get a quick boost of energy.
1. Eat a piece of chocolate!
Of course this is #1 on my list. (Dove chocolate really is the best.) A piece of chocolate always seems to make everything better. Or you can bite off the head of a Dove chocolate bunny like I just did.
2. Get outside
Walk around the block, go to the park, blow bubbles, whatever!...just get outside for a minute. Fresh air is the way to go.
3. Watch a funny video
A short, hilarious YouTube clip goes a long way. Have you seen this Ellen scare montage?
4. Host a Dance Party
Dance party in the living room? Yes! Dance party at the office? Even better.
Not only does this get my blood pumping, but watching Charlie dance is probably the best form of entertainment of all time.
5. Talk it up
Call your sister, brother, mama, or daddy. A short phone call always boosts my energy.
Any more suggestions on how to get a quick burst of energy?
