Do you want to have more energy everyday and wish you didn't feel so sleepy and lazy throughout the day?

Well, here are a few tips if you are the kind of person who sleeps a lot or feels sleepy many times during the day:

1. Wash your face:
If during the day, you feel sleepy then it can help tremedously if you wash your face with cold water. The cold water should drive away the sleepy feeling from you.

2. Go into light:
If you are sitting in a dark room, get outdoors into the light or atleast open the windows so that light can come into the room. When we are in darkness, our body produces hormones which make us feel sleepy. Exposing our bodies to light (specially sunlight) would stop the production of this hormone so that the sleepy feeling goes away and you may feel active again.

3. Get some physical exercise:
If your work involves sitting in one place for a long time, then get up and get some physical exercise whenever you feel sleepy. Lack of physical movement can also make us want to sleep. So whenever you feel lazy and your eyes are shutting down during the day, get up and take a walk, or do some other moderate physical activity till you feel your sleepiness is gone.

4. Deep breathing:

5. Take short naps:
Short naps during the day, specially during afternoon, can be very refreshing and also good for heart.

6. Inculcate proper sleeping habits:
Find out if you are having proper sleep every night. Maintain a regular sleeping pattern, maintain a sleep log to keep track of your sleeping habits.
