How to Stay Up All Night

Save

People often find it helpful to pull an all-nighter when they have a lot of things to catch up on, like studying, chores and work deadlines. It takes determination, commitment and careful planning to successfully stay up all night.

  • Make sure you are determined enough to pull off an all-nighter and have tasks that really need to be accomplished. A clear purpose will keep you focused. Write out a schedule in advance. Try to do the most boring tasks first, while you still have energy.

  • Recruit others to stay up with you. It's easier to stay up if you have someone to talk to occasionally.

  • Spend the night in a place that is not very comfortable. The nearer you are to your own bed, the more likely you are to want to lie down.

  • Take frequent walks to other rooms or outdoors. Do jumping jacks or run in place to give yourself a boost of energy.

  • Eat light snacks, but stay away from sugar, starches and heavy meals. Drink plenty of water. Caffeinated drinks or energy drinks are an option, but they might make you jittery and cause stomach upset.

  • Keep the room bright and cool. Add some stimulating background noise, like a television show or fast-paced music.

  • Take a 20-minute nap every four hours or so.

Tips & Warnings

  • If you find that you need to stay up all night frequently just to get tasks accomplished, adjust your schedule so that you can get everything done during normal waking hours. Set priorities and eliminate activities that waste a lot of time.
