Ever have one of those days when you're unsure if you can make it to the end of the day without snoozing
at your desk? Those sleepless nights can be tough, but staying awake on the job is even more painful. Too much coffee can make you jittery
, so read on to find out what else you can do to avoid snoring
1.Pen Your Thoughts
Take notes to keep yourself focused on your tasks. It's also a good way to keep your sleep-deprived
self from making careless mistakes.
2.Splash of Cold Water
There's nothing as refreshing as cool water on your face. Splash
some on during a bathroom break to keep you alert
3.Caffeine For the Eyes
eye drops will double the jolt
. This is a great tip because you don't have to leave your desk to do it.
4.Mints to Refresh Your Mind
Personally, I find that in addition to freshening my breath, mints keep my thoughts fresh!
5.Up and at 'Em
Taking a quick break to do jumping jacks or stretching (perhaps in the bathroom for some privacy) is a good way to get the blood circulating and get you through the day.
6.No More Sugar Lovin'
Eating sugar-laden foods will only keep you awake for a short while. Once that sugar rush
wears off, you will feel more sleepy than ever. Stay off the sweet stuff
on healthy options like nuts instead.
7.Keep That Belly Full
Eating a good and balanced meal will keep you energized throughout the day. Try not to overeat because that may induce
food coma and make you feel sleepier.
8.A Ray of Sunshine
Try to get some sun if you can. Bring the shades up or take a short walk to soak in the sunshine. It will make your body feel more awake and facilitate
a better adjustment to daytime mode.
