How to keep yourself awake

Save

Some days are just tiring and we may need a little wake up call to keep ourselves up and alert. Here are some methods to keep ourselves awake during the day.

  • Keep yourself slightly uncomfortable. If you have a lot to do in the day, don't sit yourself down comfortably for any amount of time! Keep on your feet or in a uncomfortable position and you won't be tempted to fall asleep.

  • Smell some peppermint. The sense of smell can sometimes wake us. Peppermint has been proven to keep you alert and also decrease stress.

  • Take a power nap. By letting yourself sleep for 20 minutes or so, you'll wake up energized and refreshed. Don't let yourself oversleep though!

  • Listen to fast, upbeat music. There is nothing like music to keep you active.

  • Never eat a full meal if you plan to be awake for long periods of time. Snack little by little, but avoid a huge meal, as it will leave you feeling sleepy.

  • Drinking a cup of tea or coffee will help you. Caffeine exists in both drinks and will help keep you alert.

  • Do physical activities such as exercise.
