You Will Need
- A bright light
- Light exercise
- Cold weather or air conditioning
- Eucalyptus chewing gum
- Fast music
Expose yourself to bright light, preferably natural daylight, to remind your mind and body that you should be awake.
Drink water to stay hydrated. Dehydration causes fatigue.
Get up from your desk every 30 minutes to walk, jump, or otherwise move around.
Keep cool by walking in cold weather, turning on the air conditioning, or splashing cold water on your face.
Chew eucalyptus gum. A strong smell can wake you right up.
Massage your neck and the backs of your hands to improve circulation.
Listen to music
Listen to up-tempo music. Nothing soothing or relaxing, but something that really gets you going.
