    Yo~

    On the back of my thread yesterday I’m now asking how you keep yourself awake? Personally I’ve never used anything to stay awake because as an insomniac I find it hard to sleep at times anyways. So things like coffee and energy drinks is pretty much useless to me. The one time I did drink a lot of the stuff was while at uni when I stayed up for 3 days to finish an assignment. But honestly that was more to keep me refreshed and stop my mouth from going dry than to keep me awake.

    So what kind of things do you do to keep yourself awake?

    Trial by combat!

    More seriously, the less active you are, the easier it is to prolong your current state. Starring at a screen like tv, tablet...

    This might sound weird.... But many a time I’ve wet my hand(with xx) and lightly traced my eyes~?
    Staring at a single spot until tears come to your eyes is an option too~~~

    I listen to music.
    But since the medicine that I have to take make me sleepy, that only works for a short while before I become a zombie and needs to go sleep.

    Sleep around 3 pm or more, you will wake up after 2-3 hours later, and the result is....too effective

    think about all mistake that you made in life, it will keep you awake for sometime and eventually you'll accept that you are a failure and will be able to sleep anywhere anytime

    Self-inflicted pain, helps keep the blood pumping: slapping yourself awake, pinching your hurt bits; or planking. 1 minute of it last a lifetime.

    Take a shower, maybe exercise if I'm not bored to death...

    Though there is no problemo about energy if you've already slept for one or two hours in the evening or so.

    Usually be sitting somewhere that I can't lay down like at my computer desk. Keep the lights on. Don't stay warm, meaning cold enviroment. Have coffee. Have something (important) to do and keeping myself hydrated and washing my face. No music since it actually makes me fall asleep.

    Doing something u like will keep u awake, like reading a novel which u like which always ends on a cliffhanger every chapter.
    But if u r asking for how to stay awake for exams or assignments walking, stretching, pinching yourself(always helped me:cry:), cold shower might help u

    Close your eyes as less as possible, don't listen to any relaxing sound, don't read, do some workout.
