In brief: Evaluate last meal

1) higher carbohydrate meals can lead to what is called "carb crash" - try to consume higher protein, which is a longer fuel, decreasing the chance of feeling tired.
2) improve lighting at your work space. 3) if you consume caffeine, do it with moderation and not all at once. 4) check the temperature of your work space.
