Get quality sleep

Sleeping is one of the most important things that you need so that your body won't feel exhausted on a daily basis. Try to sleep about 7-8 hours on a daily basis consistently.

Sleeping too little or too much can be damaging to your body which can cause many complications such as: weight gain, lowered immunity, increased risk of diabetes and heart problems, and an increase in risk of accidents as well.

Tips on How to Feel More Awake and Alert During the Day

verywellmind.com

Protein consumption and energy levels

If time allows, make yourself a decent breakfast like scrambled eggs or enjoy a fruit bowl. Consuming protein for breakfast allows your body to avert the inconsistent sugar level that would ultimately result to your body being more alert.

Having a proper diet is essential to having more energy that your body can consume, but having sugar for breakfast - muffins, cereal, or a doughnut - leads to a spike in blood sugar level which would make your body crave a nap.

Increase your energy levels by exercising

This may sound silly, but daily fatigue can actually be a way for your body to tell you that you need more stimulating activities.

Exercise raises your metabolism, boosts your mood and helps you sleep better at night. If hitting the gym ins't for you or doesn't fit in your schedule, a 20-minute brisk walk helps.

If you still feel sleepy after drinking water, try washing your hands and face in cold water. It would surely give you the zing needed to feel awake.
