    Default sleepy/tired

    I haven't been getting much sleep lately. Besides catching up on sleep, what are some good tips on helping you stay fairly awake and alert during the day when you can't just lay your head and rest?

    -- Hand exercises, hand stretches, hand massages
    -- Green tea (#1 option. many benefits. fights stress and headaches too. but not the sweet kind..)
    -- Very minty gum
    -- Flexing different muscles, kinda pushes blood around.
    -- Deep deep breaths
    -- Imagine that the simplest particle or element in the universe is energy, everything in the universe is made up of energy, and that you're one with it.
    -- Find a reason to want to do what you need to do with all your heart. Basically, self-motivation.

    It's always better to try to get that sleep though. You'll thank yourself in the long run. Hope that helps though!

    Thank you ster, that does help. I wonder why you didn't just mention caffeine, as that would've been the most obvious option I'm going to stretch, flex, take deep breaths, get some green tea and imagine the simplest particle being pure energy.

    Drink copious amounts of coffee.

    In a pinch, eat something crunchy. (Obviously not a recommendation you want to follow on a long term basis. )

    Also, I try to keep myself cold, since getting too warm makes me want to nod off.

    show up for work drunk but beware, if the effect is going to wear off, you need a flask in your trousers to rebuff !

    Jumping up and down
    Stretching your lats
    Short sprints (can be done in place)

    These all fire up your CNS.

    If you do find 10 minutes to rest. Drink one cup of coffee and lie down for exactly 10 minutes.
