10 Things To Do When You Feel Sleepy At Work

You have slept for umpteen numbers of hours and still your boss realises (and you don’t) that you were sleeping at work. It happens for many reasons. You should change your lifestyle a little so that you sleep a little less in your office. Eating healthy, sleeping and rising early and exercising are some fundamental things you should start incorporating from today. For now, if you want to be awake, here is what you need to do:

⦁    Go, wash your face:

Well, needless to say, anything for this. You have been hearing this all your life from your teachers.

⦁    Chew gum:

This have helped you survive in those long boring guest lectures in college. Right?

⦁    Take a walk:

Well, it won’t certainly be a walk to remember (unless you with special someone). But, it would definitely help you in waking up!

⦁    Take help from stairs:

Climbing stairs make you do some physical activity and that would help you in being a little active and not sleeping on your desk again.

⦁     Bask in the sun:

Get hit by the photons. When you bask in the sun, it synthesise vitamin D. This helps in reducing drowsiness.


⦁    Drink water:

Every drop would count!


⦁    Stretch:

Doing some stretching would help you become a little active. Just do a little stretching here and there and you are fit to start again.


⦁    Music:

Play some music which would make you dance on the instance. But some upbeat music would surely be helpful. (Don’t dance, please.)

⦁    Nap:

Yes. Take a power nap and you would feel fresh.


⦁    Do something else:

Do something other than what you are doing right now. Start doing any other assignment or some work which is not related to it. The switch would help you in reducing drowsiness.

Feeling sleepy at the workplace is a normal phenomenon. It happens to almost everyone. So, don’t worry, just follow these steps and ensure that your boss doesn’t catch you while you count Mississippi.
