    I try to ensure have had a good night sleep, but that doesn't always happen.

    Coffee sometimes!

    I drink coffee, more coffee, and then a bit more coffee!

    Music, music and more music.

    Caffeine doesn't work (I've even tried caffeine pills and they don't work!)

    Of course, nothing can beat a nice night's sleep! If you're getting tired at work that's an indication that you're simply getting too little sleep

    If I'm feeling sleepy I take around a half hour break and take a nice shower to get freshened up and that usually does the trick for me...

    Make sure you get up and walk around for 5 minutes at least every hour. That should help. I have never had a sip of coffee or tea in my life so caffeine hasn't been the answer for me. Just make sure you get a good nights sleep and make sure you have regular movement to get the blood flowing through your body. If you don't you will start to get tired very easily. Sitting outside in the sun for 5 minutes can also do wonders to recharge the batteries.

        Besides getting enough sleep, don't eat as many carbs for lunch or heavy duty protein like turkey. You might need to change your diet.

          Here's what works well for me:

          1. Before star working a take a 7 minutes walk.
          2. Music always on.
          3. I've an alarm going off every 70'.
          4. I go outside an exercise for 7'
          5. Around 1530/1600Hs I take 50' nap.
          6. I've at least 8hs night sleep.
          7. I drink water with few drops of 100% lemmon juice.

            Start your day with exercise.
            Don't eat a large breakfast or lunch.
            Save your large meal for dinner.
            And drink lots of water. Dehydration makes you sleepy.
            Also go to sleep at the same hour every night!

      The problem is usually too much sitting. I make it a point to do some sort of small exercise every hour or two just to get my blood pumping and my heart rate up. That's usually enough to make me feel alert and ready to work again.

    Falling asleep at lunch hour? I haven't even gotten out of bed by lunch time.

    If I feel like I want to sleep - I either kick back in the chair - out on the porch if it's sunny, or fall out on the floor or bed. IF I fall asleep, that's what I do. If I don't I get a 15 to 20 minute recharge - let myself relax and my mind drift and just totally relax.

    If you can, why not?

      Falling asleep at lunch hour? I haven't even gotten out of bed by lunch time.
      Sounds like me as well, but l have been up to 4am on most nights!


      I tend to watch Jabootie Dubs, or DJO voice-overs, of Star Wars, etc. Or Billy Mays dubovers.

      Some of those have been so funny l was virtually crying, although l have seem most of them, sob!!!!

      Watching them for half an hour, before bed is just as good as a glass of milk!

      PS most have course language, etc so use discretion!

    I'm currently staying at a hotel with horrible internet service so I'm at the library. There's a guy in front of me who has fallen asleep onto his laptop. The guard checked and he is breathing. But as to my answer, a cup of strong coffee usually gives me a few additional hours of wake time. If I'm feeling sleepy in the car I turn up the air as cold as possible and blast the radio with music I don't like.

      LOL, yep, went to the library a month ago to get out of the heat, (they have air-con) and heard an overweight guy on a sofa, snoring!

      It was almost 9pm, and was obviously a very comfy sofa, but if you have your laptop with you, a couple of red bulls, is certainly a good investment!

    diet coke and chocolate (your mouth can deal with sugars in their solid form but not as a liquid), energy drinks or master the art of sleeping standing up, have been spotted apparently taking micro naps whilst standing.
