How to Stay Awake after An All Nighter
Last Updated on
Being an all nighter due to one or multiple reasons are just okay.
Because when you need to stay awake all night, you must be having the serious reason(s) or concern(s).
Whether it is going to be the exam, you have to catch a flight, or a train; these situations definitely add up to make you stay awake after an all nighter.
Methods to stay awake after an all nighter
Worry not because you can, and can look and feel just like being the fresh in the first place if you did not lie down for a single minute throughout the night.
- Stay hydrated
- Eat well and no-sugar
- Take a power nap
- Drink caffeinated beverages
- Listen to music
- Turn on the lights
- Exercise your body
- Say NO to multitasking
- Still know your limit
And it is easily meant by taking at least 8 glasses within the entire day to keep yourself hydrated.
That does not just add into improving your health but when you are dehydrated (out of water), you will feel fatigue and that will make you to fall asleep due to increased levels of tiredness.
Eat well and no-sugar
Eat well but that should be totally dependant upon the fresh and green meals.
Try avoiding the junk foods after the complete all nighter round as it will fill up your tummy and that means you are ready to fall asleep in no time.
But try heavily to avoid the sugar-rich meals and beverages.
So, the greens will not just fill up your tummy but will provide the good healthy benefits to make you awake.
Think about your food and the food will help you a lot to NOT hit the blinks.
Take a power nap
Go to sleep for 15 to 20 minutes and see gaining the full activeness under your body and inside the mind to become as productive as you are mostly after hours of long sleep.
Drink caffeinated beverages
Caffeinated beverages such as coffee that can our the good dose of caffeine to put your mind to get active.
Caffeine do work best in getting back the alertness as it is able to stay active in your body for 5 hours.
If the coffee can fight for you to stay awake after the all-nighter, it can also puzzle your sleep cycle if taken late in the afternoon if you plan to sleep earlier in the night.
It surely kills the dizziness but if taken late, you would not be able to get the restful sleep in the night.
Listen to music
Music brings the freshness and with the complete bass, I bet you are going to enjoy and will forget about sleep at all. 🙂
When your favorite music is played on, your mind would be busy into flowing with the rhythm and hence, the indication of the sleep would entirely be faded away.
And with the headphones, every bit of the beat would make your mind put on high alert.
Turn on the lights
Working or lying in the darker room or place would turn your body to be sleep-prone.
So, turning on the lights with the use of bulb or the sunlight to enter into the room through the windows can greatly assist in killing the sleeping mode.
By the way, sitting and receiving the direct sunlight would make your circulation to run with the normal speed and will bring the energy deep down your body to feel and be shown as a lad with full activeness.
Exercise your body
And with that, it ensures that your blood circulation is running just like normal.
But beware of the fact that the exercise session should ONLY be done during the morning time.
When you do it, you would feel active for long hours (or possibly for the entire day) that enhances your mind and body to concentrate on the difficult tasks that you need them to get done with.
Make it your habit to hit the different kind of exercises whether in the gym or at home or into a nearby park, but you must make it a part of your daily routine to remain boosted and enhance your health.
Say NO to multitasking
Multi-tasking to try to hit and complete two or more tasks at the time could be greatly harmful to your mind and the body.
Jumping one to another task simultaneously, will reduce the focus and hence would make your mind to feel tired and refuse to do any one of them.
More on that, this way you cannot really get the good percentage done of the tasks and you cannot even bring the value and the quality in due to snapping the mind to hit different tasks at the same time.
Simple.. Avoid multitasking at all cost, please!
Still know your limit
You better should know about your own self, right?
About how much longer you can stay awake, how ready you are to hit the all nighter, and how to cope with the pre-all nighter.
But that is my humble advice to you, please do not try to hit the all nighter consecutively or you will hit with the health issues over time.
Now we are headed fast towards the conclusion.
And this conclusion is not just about anything, but it really sums up the ways, the methods that are best used in staying awake after an all nighter.
Do try best to not fall into such a situation; the all nighter but if you do (and you could be because of any unexpected moment), try to repeat all these advises that I shared with you to get your next day after the all nighter goes well.
Again… Know your limits and when you start hitting or know you are getting near to them, go slow and take a rest.
Happy all nighter! 🙂
