I have finals coming up and am having a hard time staying awake to finish my projects at time. Right after I eat dinner, I usually get food coma and fall asleep until the next morning. I need to stay awake during the night to finish my projects for next week. Does anybody know of a way or method to stay awake a little bit longer? Drinking energy drinks, coffee, or green tea don't quite do it for me. Any suggestions?

I think it just better for you to sleep early and then wake early up to make some homework.
I'm doing that.

I try to study before I eat a lot, and if I have to study after dinner, then I study for a bit, go do something that I have to move around for (picking up my room, doing the dishes, playing with my puppy) then go back to studying. When I start to get bored or tired, I distract myself again, then go back, ect.

Huh, I eat , it's a very bad habit, but it's the only way, and sometimes, I listen to the clips on MTV, even if I must concentrate on homework or things like that, because I need a background music…

Blasting my music doesn't help me. I had my playlist on the loud and angry music and on full blast and I still fell asleep. Also music distracts me if I need to read a boring textbook.

I think if you get sleepy go wash your face with cold water or eat some lollies or chocolate. Something that gives you sugar but doesn't fill you up to make you sleepy. Washing your face frequently might help, I mean it really wakes me up in the morning. Or do some other action that shocks the body or at least really stimulates your nerves.

I've never really had trouble staying awake if I need to do work. Especially if it's a project due soon. I only fall asleep if it's boring boring study lol. But like someone mentioned the best thing may be to just go to sleep earlier and then work early since eating makes you fall asleep. Seriously, I'm trying to sleep by 11pm each night and get up at 7am... it's working and I'm getting so much sleep and doing so much work.

Drink coffee and eat pop corn. Surely, I would be fat but I don't xD
Writing a poem or think something for the future and make some quiz or chat with people's in messenger.

I totally agree, when I study for finals I always try to study for them a couple of weeks before they begin, though I should say I do procrastinate enough-ok well a lot ^^;

but sleep is very important if you want to function properly, so sleeping early, and then getting up early is a good good idea. As to the question of whether or not I can stay awake when I need to, I can, but it takes great effort T.T

i ususally read or watch anime and drink so soda or coffee to keep me occupied so that i can stay up. i ususally can stay up at night if i have something to do, if i am bored i'd go to sleep instead

Well, I could eat to keep myself awake. I could be watching TV too, but sometimes I fall asleep watching TV. Maybe watching an anime or reading a manga/novel. Keep the lights on. Keep an alarm on if you fall asleep easily but wake up easily too. Taking a shower should keep me awake.

Maybe you could take a 30 minute nap when you come home from school, then you might not be so tired after dinner.

Also, when you feel sleepy you should get off the chair and do some jumping or running around to get your heart pumping! That always helps me wake up when I get sleepy and I need to stay up longer.

To stay awake I never drink something warm, that only relaxes your body and makes you more tired.
Staying awake if you're tired is bad, anyway... (I'm doing it too <.<)

Take a cold shower or simply wash you face with cold water, before that make some sport like jogging so that your blood pressure starts to work. After that you can be unhealthy and drink some coffee or eat glucose/dextrose? (German: Traubenzucker... well there are still some words I normally never use).

A large cup of coffee and a cold bath (not hot that relax you ) it's the best answer i think
but in the end sometimes whatever you do you simply can;t keep your eyes open!!!!

When I need to stay awake, I usually play loud music so the whole room is booming. But it's pretty annoying at times lol.

For me, if I really need to stay up, I put on music that I don't like. i also get myself a giant coffee or something to stay away. While trying to stay awake, I would also eat fruit like apple and strawberry. These really help me out alot.

Hmm...if I need to stay awake, it would have to be tea since coffee will do me no good. Reading mangas surely keeps me awake...
