It's so hard to stay awake especially these times that I was on my training. We don't have students yet, we are just here in school, keep on reading books to be prepared when the student will arrive on the second week of November. Sometimes our manager caught me sleeping on my cubicle. I was just so bored on reading books alone. idioms are so boring. How about you? What are the things you do in order for you to stay awake?

To stay awake I drink coffee or Dr. Pepper. Get myself involved in some interesting topic online. Doing research I really get interested and can spend hours whether tired or not. Getting totally involved in something can help you to stay awake for along time.

That is a very easy question with a simple answer. I sleep, hahhaa! no better way but to give in with the drowsy feeling. Try to create an alibi or scheme that if ever someone caught you sleeping, you have a ready alibi to use.

sometimes I read everything near with me..but mostly I will reach my cellphone and start to open my Facebook account via mobile phone. Facebook is really helps if I am in those situations. I don't feel lonely cos I have many friends to share with though they are not real ones..LOL..today I have online shop on Facebook so I spend my time answering questions from my customers, or just sending friend requests. I think it can sweep my boredom away..thank you..

It's really hard to keep awake on training especially if the speaker has low voice that's like singing you to sleep. I suggest you could scribble notes on topics you might want to discuss on mylot. Or maybe do an origami, there are lots of things that's good to be done.

I never used to read until recently. Now whenever I'm bored, need to pass the time, or can't sleep, I just pull out a good novel. I just finished one called, "On Maggie's Watch." It was a great book and got me into reading again. It definitely helps me fall asleep and cures my boredom. I just love escaping into books every once in awhile. I had missed it so much.

In the type of job I have, getting bored and sleepy is my number one problem. To keep me from sleeping, I eat. Reading materials that does not pique your interest is no use sine it will make you more sleepy. A coffee and an interesting book, plus some nuts that will keep you mouth busy is a good formula to keep awake.

I will spend it mylotting :P As long as there is internet and computer I am sure I will never get bored with mylotting. Well,you can do some crochet when your manager is not around. I know it's really boring reading and reading books all the time. Or,why not bring a romance novel with you to read.

I don't usually have much trouble staying awake unless I'm at home and I'm bored. Then I usually can just lay down and take a nap. If I'm out somewhere and I'm sleepy I'll get up and walk around, get a drink of something cold and try to wake myself up.

give yourself a 10-minute break every after 30 minutes of reading your book..or have something to eat..but be sure not to make yourself full, because it mostly make you more sleepy.. me, i drink coffee twice a day just to keep myself awake..but drinking more than 2 cups of it isn't good..caffeine has an effect to our hear also..

I am seldom bored since I am way to busy and I always have to manage time. When I am sleepy I go to bed if I am very sleep or tired I can be way too tired to walk the stairs to go to my bedroom. Then it's possible I hang on the couch watching nothing to find the courage/strengh to go upstairs. With that I waste a lot of good sleeping time :-( I have to practise going up earlier more. If I feel sleepy in the car I put the windows open, sit in the cold and put the radio on. If it's to worse I stop the car and take a nap. For the rest I just have to keep busy etc so I get over that sleepy feeling which I mostly manage to do so.
