Key Ideas

Prevent Tiredness

General tiredness affects the majority of people.

Here are a few basic ideas to have all-day energy:

  1. Respect your body's sleep cycle
  2. Move around
  3. Moderate coffee intake.

Respecting your body's sleep cycle

It is imperative to sleep 7 to 9 hours for most adults.

An alarm clock or phone alarm can interfere with the body's sleep cycle to wake us up before a cycle is completed. It is healthier to sleep while not being simulated and wake up naturally.

Moderate coffee intake

Caffeine occasionally can be good to drive off tiredness and fatigue but has the opposite effect when taken in excess.

Switch to teas instead of high-caffeine energy drinks and coffee.

Take time out to rest

Sleeping 8 hours a day and taking a time-out to rest is crucial.

Give yourself time to recuperate, in order to perform better at any task, and to recall better what you have studied.

Make focus a lifestyle choice

Make focus a regular part of your lifestyle, by practicing it progressively on a daily basis.

This means making a commitment to stop using your smartphone for a few hours daily, or not checking it first thing in the morning.

Your Sleep Cycle Duration

Instead of forcing yourself to wake up at a certain time (like 5:00 am), observe your sleep pattern for a few days and find out your ideal wake up time. Ensure that your energy levels are on a high side.

Sleep Regularity

There can be numerous reasons that derail us from a good night’s sleep, as our lifestyle is not geared towards sleep by default. While tackling this is hard, it helps to make a list of all the things that make you lose your sleep, like time spent with family or a night out with friends, and try to move or reschedule it a few hours earlier or at a different time.

It pays to limit the impact of these external elements in your sleep.
