How to Have More Energy After Having Little Sleep


If you have been burning the midnight oil, the odds are that you are feeling tired and lacking in energy. Don't despair, however. You can get some of that energy back so you can have a productive day. When you've had little sleep, here's how to have more energy.

  • Drink caffeinated beverages, such as coffee, tea, soft drinks or energy drinks, to wake you up. Try to avoid going overboard with the caffeine though or you can get jittery.

  • Have a cold shower. The cold water on your body will help wake you up and make you feel refreshed. If you don't have time for a cold shower, simply splash your face a few times with some cold water.

  • Take a catnap or a power nap. Nap for no more than 15 minutes or you can feel even more tired. A short time of quiet relaxation, even if you don't sleep, can give you more energy to help you get through your day.

  • Do a light exercise routine. Getting your muscles and body moving will help increase your energy levels

  • Eat a healthy breakfast to give you more energy. A breakfast, consisting of lean protein and complex carbohydrates, will give you more energy even when you have had little sleep.

  • Get a good night's sleep. If you didn't get a lot of sleep last night, try to go to bed at an early hour tonight so you can feel refreshed and energized for the next day.

Tips & Warnings

  • Make sure to drink other fluids, such as water, if you drink caffeinated beverages regularly because caffeinated beverages can make you dehydrated.
