yes.drinking a lot of water is a good way out my friend.but,you can try distracting your mind by doing something different,something creative.like scxetching the face of your boss or play some intellligent game.they will keep awake you...

I am working graveyard and most of the times, I feel soooo sleepy. I have been drinking coffee but this time, coffee seems to be of no effect anymore.. LOL.. What I usually do is to take a 15 minute break to take a little nap and I am fine. I have tried to keep myself busy but my eyes just closes by itself no matter what I do.
@jazel_juan (15767)

oh graveyard.. i might be able to last if only i had naps in the afternoon...but still i do not know if i will last that since i do not drink coffee at all!
• Philippines

I learned to drink coffee because of this work schedule. I do afternoon naps but I still get so sleepy by 2-3 in the morning. This happens most of the time even if I have enough rest.

Nap is just so short so it will not take most of your work time, so take a nap because if not you can not take your thoughts to wander. Just hide and let somebody who is your close friend to watch you and wake you up when your boss is already there.
@jazel_juan (15767)

it is hard to take a nap here in our office because it is just sooo open, there is nowhere to hide, unless i take a nap in the comfort room lol!

well,i drink lots of water.but,may be it does not help me for being sleepy.so,i always had to find something unusual business to keep awake.
@gtdonna (1740)

I totally do not like drinking water, so when I go to bed late and wake up early for work and feeling sleepy, I normally walk around the office or go outside for some fresh air and return. Since I am also not a coffee drinker, nothing much I can really do to keep awake, but immerse myself in work
@jazel_juan (15767)

ohh.. a little walk does help i believe because it help circulates our blood and gets us active again.

I would usually be sleepy , when i didn't get 7 hours of sleep. Usually, when that happens i would all day be yawning. But i will get so sleepy too, at around that time too. The food i took for lunch might have contributed more to my sleepiness. I would eat Kopiko , whenever i feel so sleepy. Then i would go around the mall , where our office is or take a pee at a far comfort room.

Sleepy due to lack of blood to brain and went to s - Take a walk to toilet to wash face is good.
Usually after lunch is the sleepy period because of the heavy meal lunch, all the blood rush to the stomach and leaving the brain tired and the limbs lazy.Hence i usually take light lunch or later lunch it depends, or take less heavy .Some take just juice or sandwich, but good breakfast.Usually a walk or 2 to the toilet to wash hand and wash face is good.
@jazel_juan (15767)

yes i believe so..i do not take lunch at all since i eat sandwhich between 10 in the morning or often times i have heavier breakfast..

hi jazel juan thats no fun for sure. I am having trou=ble this early evening as I did not sleep well last night. I went to bed at ten and woke up several times during the night. so now I am gaping like crazy while mylotting too. I once fell asleep here, hit my face on the keyboards and made a big lump on my forehead and a black eye.Is your office a tad warm in the afternoon? open some windows and get a cool breeze blowing. I would get up and stroll around the office. practice walking backwards as its harder than it sounds.dp a few jumping jacks then go back and see if that woke you up and got your blood flowing better.oh gosh no jaxel do not chance your boss seeing you take a nap, jobs are too hard to come by now days in most countries.I did not check your profile so do not know if you are from the Philippines or the US or India? if y you are alone in your office trying singing. lol hope we have all helped you to stay awake.lol lol l[

We usually have a quite room where a la-z-boy is available for you to sleep on. But I rarely go there as it would take my time off my clock and leave me to get off to work at a later time. So I just doze off on my table. I am usually sleepy after lunch, around 2pm. What I do, I usually surf on the net for topics that I am interested in or usually like you, I am at Mylot. If I am fortunate I see some of my friends in discussions, I usually chat with them even if the topic is not related anymore to the topic discussed. It is fun and not make me sleepy then.

What I do to stay awake is throwing some cold water in my face, it helps a lot for me. Stretching your arms and lengs by taking a walk outside or in the office can help too. Listening to loud, hard music like techno or electro or some other very active music makes me very active. Drinking something fresh like water or something with a lot of sugar in it. Of course sleeping earlyer and waking up later in the morning can help too.

It is really difficult to keep awake and doing with our work when we feel sleepy.Maybe,it is best to get up early and go to bed early if you don't have too much to deal with.If there are many tasks waiting for you to finish,you can set up a small plan to finish them step by step.If the time to finsh your tasks is too limited,you may find someone else to help if possible.If you have to deal with so many business by yourself in a short time,and you are sleepy,you may have some small breaks to strentch your arms and legs to release yourself. Wish you happy on mylot!

Most of the time i won't sleep at my work but few times yes i felt sleepy. Especially after my lunch when i came back to my work because of the air condition's cool air and pin drop silence over the floor made me sleepy. But when i saw my boss then i realize that if i sleep here then he will kick me out of this organization. But i was yawning for a long time.

If I get sleepy i just sleep these days. But when i'm in school and I get sleepy, I tell my friend to pinch me lol it really makes your sleepiness go away. Or I ask them to poke me with something sharp like a pencil or pen.

I can really understand what are you talking about, cause when it's around 16 I can't find my place at work and I want to nap and I don't drink coffee too. What I'm doing? I'm just trying to do some work, to chat with some colleagues or friends and counting the minutes till the end...but if you have a work to do the time is passing fast and you won't want to sleep :)

My sleepy moments happened a few days ago, my boss was out for meeting so what I do is I surf the net to kill the time. I don't have much to do that day and since I love surfing the net, I did. Try to visit interesting site and view interesting, weird pics, that's what I do to wake me up. I also don't drink coffee, I'm not into that. Well, I guess being busy in one thing makes us escape sleepiness, so make your self super busy but double check every job you did as this may result to typo error or any mistake P.S. I feel sleepy now and the boss is here!
