今週のフレーズ game changer
Saori: The past two days I've been taking 20-minute naps in the break room during my lunch break after I drink a cup of coffee, and it's been giving me an energy boost in the afternoon.
Sean: So you're trying the caffeine and short nap trick that you saw on TV. Do you think it works better than just a nap, or just some tea or coffee?
Saori: I think it's definitely better than just one or the other.
Anne: Are there other people in the break room when you're napping?
Saori: I try to go when other people aren't there. That's why I've been taking my lunch breaks a bit later than usual. But thanks to the new routine, I feel I've been working much more efficiently in the afternoons.
Sean: I've noticed recently that you don't slow down a bit in the afternoons even when we're all beginning to feel that dip in energy.
Saori: I know. It's been great.
Anne: It sounds like it's been a game changer.
Sean: I should try it myself.
Anne: You should. I wish I could, but caffeine gives me migraines.
Saori: That's too bad. I feel so refreshed.
