With the end of summer comes the end (or start) of crazy late nights out. No more long vacations, week long road trips, or 8-hour days at the beach. Reality kicks in for those students returning to school and for the recent graduates, the dreaded 9 to 5 work schedule.

Our Favorite How To Stay Awake Tips:
Take A Power Nap
Wikihow recommends taking a nap for 15-20 minutes, and having a cup of coffee before too. If you’re an energy drink kind of person, try out a Red Bull before falling asleep.
Listen To Music That’ll Energize You
We couldn’t have agreed with this more! Now if you’re sick of your mp3 collection, or don’t want to loop all the songs of yesterday, check out Pandora.com or Last.fm. These are music discovery web sites that stream music to you based on artists you like.
Lastly, here’s a few more tips:
