What do you do to stay up?

I just wrapped up work, trying to pull an IC dev session, but holy shit I am DRAINED. I could go for a good mid-day sleep for 2 or 3 hours haha.

What’s your goto for energy? Caffeine? Cold shower? Something else?

Put the kids to bed. Once I’ve done that I’m buzzin! FREEEEEDOM!!!


Power nap for 20-30 minutes, i sometimes drink coffee and then sleep for 20 minutes.

" the 20-minute nap was associated with improvements emerging 35 minutes after napping and lasting up to 125 minutes after napping; and the 30-minute nap produced a period of impaired alertness and performance immediately after napping, indicative of sleep inertia, followed by improvements lasting up to 155 minutes after the nap.[7"


haha usually this but sometimes I need a nap too. Shower usually helps at least make me feel refreshed enough to get a few more things done. Sometimes it backfires and makes me more sleepy. catch a few zzz’s, grab a snack, stay hydrated and get to it! lol

I second the coffee nap.
Caffine works best when you’re already marginally alert, you need that 20 minute nap to refresh the caffine receptors in your brain.
Drink the coffee then take a nap before it soaks in. When you wake up the caffine should be in full effect.


Yeah that coffee nap sounds pretty good, especially cause it’s apparently called a “nappuccino” lol. I’m a sucker for puns.

Today, unfortunately, I lost the battle against the sandman. :frowning: A “short nap” turned into 3 hours. D’oh!

@Tishxo hydration for sure! Good call.

I watch a tv show while driving down the road for 7 hours at night! :grin: true story

That’s terrifying. :grimacing:

I’ll think of that the next time i’m sleepy, then I won’t be able too lol.

Where you been? :eyes:

Coffee is nasty to me :no_good_woman:t5: don’t @me anyway…I just take a power nap for like 30min and set 20 alarms so I don’t over sleep my nap and that helps a lot. Sometimes it’s better to rest the body instead of push it too hard.
