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. Read on to find out what else you can do to stay awake and focused.
Take a Walk Around the Block
Get up and get some sunshine. Bright light and a quick walk will get your blood pumping and energize you. The rest of your day will be a breeze.
Get a Standing Desk
Getting a desk that can be raised and lowered gives you the opportunity to stand up while you’re working. Changing positions can keep you energized.
Splash Cold Water on Your Face
There’s nothing as refreshing as cool water on your face. Splash some on during a bathroom break to keep you alert.
Exercise Before Work
Whether you take a class or go for a run, studies show that exercise increases your overall energy throughout the day.
Have a Caffeine Fix
Caffeine is only a temporary way to get you going, but it’s very effective. Try to stick to coffee and tea rather than energy drinks — extreme caffeine doses will cause you to crash and burn. A cup of Joe will kick-start you into action.
