Sorry for such an overdue update. It’s time for some quick blog updates and then back to my work. It’s that time of the semester where nothing exists but you, your computer and probably caffeine drinks. Let’s just be honest with ourselves, as much as we try and time manage, organise and prioritise days somewhere that goes out the window. Your days become a never ending cycle of (cue creepy horror music) *dan dan DAAN* LATE NIGHTERS. So if we’re going to have them, let’s do it W.E.S.T style.
Here are some tips to start off with without needing an excessive amount of energy drinks that has some belly-aching repercussions later on if you know what I mean.
*avoid sitting on something comfortable like your bed with your work perched out because you may fall asleep. Sit at your desk, in your bathtub on the floor but it has to be a place where you won’t sleep.
*every so often do some gentle stretches
*walk to the bathroom, splashing cold water and brushing teeth helps to waken you up and get rid of pongy breath.
*rather than red bull, tea or coffee try ice cold water or fruit juices. But ice cold!
*don’t attempt to stay awake through the whole night, have a small nap at some point and keep the alarm far away so you have to walk to get to it. (Unless you’re a flop like me who walks to my phone alarm, turns it off, then slumps straight back into bed…totally zonked)
What are your all-nighter tips?
Or the smart thing like a small percentage of rare students is to not have an all-nighter and work consistently throughout the year. *awkward silence*
Good luck with your assignments everyone, you’re nearly there with the semester and before you know it you’ll be snuggling in bed, in a world in which morning lectures don’t exist.
