Just this week, I started my 3 weeks training for my job. I got problem staying awake during the very boring theory lesson. I can sense that the lecturer's eyes are always on me when my eyes started to close.....=(( I tried to keep myself awake by eating sweets and pinching myself....lol....Then during the night, when I wanted to surf the net and do my ptc sites and myLot, I also become extremely sleepy. After just 15 min, I become very sleepy. I need HELP to stay awake during my training and during the night!!! Any member got good suggestions???

i was once like that. i was juggling an office work and teaching job in the daytime and going to school at night and in the weekends. good thing my teacher empathized with me and asked me to take a modular course instead. that gave me a decent amount of sleep at night. maybe you could do the same thing?

It is really very tiring juggle working during the day and studying in the night. Lucky for me, my theory training will only last for 3 weeks, after that it will be more on-the-job training on system. So hopefully, it will not be so boring. Cheers =))

You need to get 8 hours per day, try to work this into your schedule. Maybe you could get a nap or two. If you don't get this much sleep you can become sick.

Hello dear, how have you been doing so far. I strongly believe getting enough of 8 hours sleep will definitely helps to prevent me from sleepy during my training. Cos I am almost full of energy when I get full 8 hours or more sleep. Thanks for your response. Cheers =))

Wash your face with cold water. Take a brisk walk and have a strong cup of coffee. You will be back to normal.

I thinking washing my face with cold water will likely to freshen me up during those boring training lessons. Coffee has very little effect on me during the day, but it has a great effect on me during the night. Very strange, right??? Nevertheless, thanks for your response. Cheers =))

You can try to have your interest on the subject thoon. In that way, You'll be more interested on the topic and will listen eagerly on your monster-eyed lecturer. I have always had the same experience when i was in high school. I was elected the class president and sat in front of the teacher's table so she could easily call my attention and i am easily found. She ALWAYS caught me

Oh, it is very bad and unlucky to be sitting right infront of the teacher. But some topics are really so boring and the lecturers are so boring in their teaching. Got 1 more week to go for my training..... Cheers =))

hey, you can ask your classmate to pinch you when your eyes srart to close. it's more useful than you pinch yourself.
