    I hate that I feel sleepy

    after I eat. It's like my energy is all drawn- I can't think much. I really hate that. I don't really like to eat. Hunger makes me unable to think clearly so I go to eat even I don't have ideas what to eat. But after eating, I can't think clearly in another way-too sleepy to...

    I am experiencing postcranial sleepiness now.

    When I was in my graduate school, I usually went to the computer room or library to get online to talk with people on my MSN messenger after a meal. During the postcranial time, I either feel sleepy or listless and ca't concentrate on serious matter and want to do some light...

    Do you like to eat? But

    after eating, I feel too listless to focus. I just feel too full now. So how do you work with your brain after eating a meal? Before eating, I feel too hungry to focus on my thinking. So how do you work with your brain when you are hungry?

    I really hate the postcranial sleepiness.

    If eating food leads to sleepiness, isn't food like the side-effect of drug? If hunger forces us to eat, isn't hunger like an illness? If the hunger illness attacks less frequently, there should be more exploitable time for us. After I finished correcting the draft of a post on...

    Well, honestly, this mostly happens

    when I wait too long to eat, then my body doesn't have the focus of energy to digest food and also do normal things like give me mental awareness to pay attention, so... I try to eat smaller meals more often or relax after eating whilst sitting up (not lying down because that is...

    What Will Make Me Sleepy

    I always get sleepy after I eat a nice meal. I always get sleepy after I take a shower before bed. I always get sleepy when I read before bed. I get sleepy when I get on EP during the late night. I think these are a few of the way to get me to start relaxing

    A big and delicious meal always works

    for me.Thats one of the few things that makes me sleepy and or fall asleep. Once you I'm full I need to sleep for a good while. So if you want me to fall asleep feed me a good meal. Or just give me a glass of milk and I will crash.

    I feel sleepy now; it's the effect

    after eating a meal. I feel my brain can't exercise its whole power. I really hate this. I feel time has been insufficient to use for me. How do you remove post-cranial sleepiness or listlessness? Don't tell me to eat a small amount. That can't solve my hunger trouble. I need to...
