A student might have different reasons for staying awake for a whole night, but while it is easy to stay energetic during a sleepover or a party, you can’t help but falling asleep after having read a couple of lines in a textbook. Are you searching for a way to stay awake and study effectively for a whole night? Here are some tips on how to do it!
Do not let anything distract you
Turn off the devices you do not need while you are studying and put the rest of them on mute. Do not let yourself start surfing the Net, texting friends, checking the mail and vice versa. Think of a punishment in case you do get distracted, anything unpleasant enough and not useful in any way. For example, if you choose washing up as your punishment, you might end up comforting yourself with the thought that it was supposed to be done anyway, so why should you wait?
Drink cold water instead of black tea or coffee
Black tea and coffee will give you a temporal source of energy, but you risk feeling bad the next day. You can drink it if you need to finish a project and then can rest during the next day. At the same time, iced water is the best way to keep you awake, as it will not give you a feeling of relaxing and comfort that hot drinks give. There is also another way to make water help you – you can take a shower, but once again, do not make it hot, as you will relax and feel like sleeping.
Do some exercises
Do a couple of pushups or jump for a while. You can even dance for a little bit, the main thing is to make the blood rush to your brain to help you study faster and stay energetic.
Chew a chewing gum
Your body reacts to a chewing gum as to a signal that you are eating, so your brain secretes insulin. It will help you to stay awake, but at the same time will make you hungry faster. You can also eat an ice cube, as there are no many things that can wake you up as effectively as it does.
Prepare the setting
Turn on the lights. Find the most uncomfortable chair to sit on. Put on some rhythmic music. You should not be in a calm and cozy atmosphere, as you will get sleepy in mere seconds.
Hopefully, these tips will help you to stay awake for the whole night and feel fine the next day, but you should better finish everything and take at least a short nap before the test or exam.
