- Get some fresh air: Going outside for a walk or some other activity can help you feel more awake and energized.
- Stay hydrated: Drink plenty of water and avoid caffeine, which can make you feel more alert but may also interfere with your sleep later on.
- Avoid napping: It can be tempting to take a nap, especially if you are feeling tired, but napping can actually make it harder to stay awake later on.
