Take a caffeine nap

"The Achieve-IT blog has posted a tip about getting a great energy boost with a caffeine nap.

The Caffeine Nap is simple. You drink a cup of coffee and immediately take a 15 minute nap. Researchers found coffee helps clear your system of adenosine, a chemical which makes you sleepy. So in testing, the combination of a cup of coffee with an immediate nap chaser provided the most alertness for the longest period of time. The recommendation was to nap only 15 minutes, no more or less and you must sleep immediately after the coffee.

Doesn’t sound like something you’d want to be doing every day, but when you find your eyelids drooping on a long road trip or something along those lines, a caffeine nap might be just the ticket."

This leads to anurisyms later.


This is worrying, because I've been doing this sort of thing by accident for a while now. Although I will testify to its helpfulness!

Pay no attention to ant's doomsaying. It does NOT lead to aneurysms.


Anyway, I've done it many a time by accident as well; hell, back when I lived in the cultural dead zone of So Cal as a kid, pretty much all there was to do was find someplace to drink coffee at like 3 am, and then go home and fall asleep.

It's the naps thing that I see as unlikely; there is no point during my day at which I would actually have space and time to lie down for fifteen minutes, much less fall asleep.

dilated_wound recommends the following alternative: drink a cup of water, then shotgun a large energy drink. I can't medically recommend this, but it does give him a serious case of crazy-eye, which is all you need in some situations.



*tries it*

That is interesting because I always feel most sleepy in the morning right after I've finished my coffee.
