I learned this the hard way a several years ago, but I was just reminded again when a coworker of mine brought in some caffeine free Chamomile Tea to work. Chamomile Tea makes you sleepy. It is a relaxer and sleep aid. “Okay… And?” you are probably thinking… well if you are already having trouble staying awake at work, then please for your own sake, don’t drink Chamomile Tea at work. The tea in combination with the 2 O’Clock crash after lunch will lull you to sleep and you won’t understand why until you read the wikipedia article on it. So this is indefinitely today’s GOTCHA!
This of course doesn’t happen to everyone. For example I drink double shots of espresso before I go to sleep, it doesn’t keep me awake.
