Everyone’s had those days where they just can’t seem to stay awake. No matter how hard you try, your eyelids keep drooping, and you’re barely avoiding falling asleep. It would be great if you could sneak away from your responsibilities for a short nap. Unfortunately, not everyone has that freedom. Tiredness can lead to many issues regardless of your location or what you're doing. Waking yourself can be hugely important for your safety and productivity.


1. Coffees and Teas

Most people’s first go-to is coffee and other caffeinated drinks and for good reason. Caffeine is a powerful stimulant that provides energy for the day to come. If you’re not a fan of coffee, many other stimulating drinks aren’t quite as polarizing. For example, black and green teas have less caffeine than coffee, but many people find them easier to drink. There are also caffeine pills, powder, and supplements, though these carry some risks.
