Some people have no real problem staying awake during the day, as they can simply crack open an energy drink or pour a cup of coffee on those days when they get really tired, and this will keep them awake; there are other people, however, who prefer not to drink coffee or energy drinks, and there are also other people who drink coffee and energy drinks so often that these no longer keep them awake! If you fall into any sort of category of people who "sometimes have a hard time staying awake" during the day, it will help you to have an idea as to some of the less conventional, more natural things you can do in order to keep yourself from getting sleepy during the day.Stretching: When you are working a desk job, one of the things that will make you feel tired is the fact that you are sitting perfectly still, staring at a computer, for the majority of the day; you do not need to carve a portion of your day out as "exercise time" in order to get the blood flowing – simply getting up and stretching a few times throughout the day will get your blood flowing and wake up your body. Breathing exercises: Of course, "breathing" is something you do without even thinking about it in order to stay alive, but breathing exercises are something different; hold your body upright, and spend about five minutes taking deep inhalations through your nose and exhaling through your mouth, as this will go a long way in making you feel more awake. Sunlight: Despite the fact that sunlight is good for your body, it can also make your eyes feel tired; if you are going to be spending time outdoors, or if you will be driving around when the sun is strong, keep sunglasses on your face, and your eyes will become a lot less tired! Of course, if you find that you are tired all the time, there might be more wrong with you than these solutions will take care of, but if you simply find yourself feeling tired every once in a while, these solutions will go a long way in helping you feel better.
