[b]Hi buddies, what will you do, when reading a book or working with computer, if your eyes feel tired and sleepy what would you do? Myself, it depends upon the situation. If I have a work that to be completed fast then I go and wash my face refresh myself, and continue to work. But, in the case of studies/exam, I normally go for sleep, and read for the exam afterwards... What would you do guys??[/b]

Yeah it's depend on the situation. If in office i get sleepy i just go to bathroom and wash my face. Or i just as my officeboy to make a coffee for me. But if i get sleepy when i read a book or play computer at home i just rest in bed or take a nap. Or just play with my daughter to ride out my sleepy feeling

I am the same, I wash my face and refresh or I take big stretch break and walk around for a few minutes, then come back to the computer. I find stretching helps me stay awake the best!

Not usually but sometimes. It depends on the situation and what I am working on. If I have a deadline or am really anxious to complete something, then no I don't let me tired eyes keep me from reaching my goal.

If i need to keep myself up i'd drink a warm cup of tea for caffeine to kick me, but if my eyes are tired and sleepy and i have nothing so important to do then i'd just go to bed cause my body is asking me to. We are in control of our body but our body needs some re-charging too like our computers and cellphones.

Hey, Well to tell you the truth, I think that I would just shut my eyes for a while, and maybe have a quick nap. Like right now I also feel quite tired, and I think that I am just going to have a quick nap right now. Make sure you have a good day, God bless and Happy Lotting!!

Hello arunmails: Definitely, it depends upon the situation. if i am studying my lessons, i need to take a nap or simply sleep for me to rest and regain my interest & strength. However, it is really need for tomorrows submission then I will take a bath. but if at work, i will definitely wash my face to freshen up my self.

aha, when my eyes feel tired, I will close it to sleep a while ,and I feel better, I would get up to continue my work. I feel that fatigue is uncomfortable,so in any case I have to rest for a while. haha

I take that as my cue to stop and go to sleep. I find if I try to fight the sleepy tired eyes I really don't get productive work done, so it is best for me to stop and get the needed rest and then start again once I have properly rested

I go to sleep too. Actually, that is my remedy if I can't sleep. I read a book in my bed. After I feel that my eyes hurt, I go to sleep.

Yes, reading a book in the bed is the quick way of getting sleep...

After working with computer,it is not good to wash your face,as the radiation on your face will come into your eyes. If my eyes feel tired,I will go out and see some green plants.I will soon feel comfortable. Sleeping is a good way to relax our eyes,yet we don't have time in daytime. Some people like to use eyedrop.After using it,our eyes will soon feel fine.But we will become addicted to it.

I am a caffeine junkie. Normally I'll consume a lot of cup of coffee a day, especially when I am sleepy and groggy. The same goes from my school days until now. I did try washing my face but it never work for me. But if coffee didn't work, I'll get up and talk a little walk.

If I feel sleepy, I simply go to sleep. If my eyes get tired, I just close them. Getting a rest is very important for one who feels tired or sleepy. I don't stay in the computer for long anymore as the doctor adviced me not to expose my eyes with computers for my migraine will become worse.

Personally, I have tried a few things when I've encountered this problem, especially when I've had something important to complete. Walking or taking a stroll, for example, has worked for me. When I feel I going to doze off, I just get up and take a walk for about 10 minutes, maybe in the hallways, maybe outdoors (depending on the situation). Washing my face also helps, but not as much for me. If I come back and start to read or stare at the computer, I feel sleepy and tired all over again. Basically, what you need to be doing is letting the phase of sleepiness/tiredness pass. Once you pass that period, you won't feel sleepy for quite some time to come!!

When my eyes feel tired and sleepy while I am doing work and stuff, I will just close it and let it rest until it wets but my eyes don't always cooperate well, sometimes it won't get wet even though I try to squeeze it, when it is dry like that, it hurts really bad so I sometimes bring the eyedrop just in case, using it a lot is not good for our eyes though, it will become a rely.
