  • "Alive" multi-vitamin is a booster -- I can always tell if I forgot to take mine!

  • I still believe in Red Bulls. I can drink coffee all day, but it still doesn't work for me like Red Bull. Also, I have found that a simple Vitamin B supplement works wonders....

  • Nap. Napping is wonderful.

    An apple and a glass of water have been shown to be 'as good' at making people feel alert and refreshed as 2 cups of coffee (or the equivalent sugar-shock soaked energy drinks)...

  • I am a big fan of ginsing tea. It works great and keeps me alert too. If I need physical energy I go for dried fruit and almonds. But not too much.

  • In addition to getting enough sleep, try adding CoQ10, Magnesium citrate, B12 and B complex to your daily supplements. If you have to adjust to a new sleep schedule, a little melatonin will help you fall asleep naturally at your new bedtime. (Natural, in that it is a natural sleep hormone, and won't cause drowsiness later or dependency.) GL :-)
