There are several halachos that the  minhag is to be more lenient after
chatzos on Tbav

Business, sitting  on regular chairs, talis and tephillin etc


What changed in  the afternoon? 

Mordechai Cohen

The mood of despair lightens in the afternoon because we are expecting the  
imminent arrival of Moshiach.  I have read somewhere that some people  
(Sefardim maybe?) have a custom to sweep the floor and tidy up the house on  
Tisha B'Av afternoon in anticipation of Moshiach's arrival.
