How to Avoid Sleepiness While Studying


I'm just kidding :D

I wouldn't recommend such things. Doing such things may increase your hairfall.

Believe me, hairfall will cause more stress and depression than not studying :D

So what is the best thing to do?


Yes you heard me right. Sleep!

Most of our memories and information we learn during the day get processed during sleep. So if you miss the night sleep, your memory and recall will be poor. Your attention and problem solving skills also will decline over time.

Sleep helps learning, memory and creativity. A 2010 Harvard study suggested that dreaming may reactivate and reorganize recently learned material, which would help improve memory and boost performance.

A good night's Sleep triggers changes in the brain that solidify memories (strengthening connections between brain cells and transferring information from one brain region to another).

Not only that, we need a good night's sleep to process and retain that information over the long term.

So, whats the point in avoiding sleep for studies if you can't retain it.

Power naps during the day can also boost your performance and memory.

Normally we get tired and drowsy after studying continuously all the day. During that drowsy period, we waste more than 30 mins trying hard not to sleep. And another 30 mins to go out and drink some coffee/tea. Even if you try to study during that drowsy phase it will not get registered in your memory.

Totally this makes your study hours ineffective and literally you are wasting your time by not using it productively.

So, instead of wasting an hour trying hard to stay awake the best thing to do is taking a power nap for 15–30 mins and get back to studies. You will feel refreshed and can get back to work with extra energy.

Napping can help improve your memory and solve problems.

Sleeping well at night, and long enough, is associated with good health. The combination is a two-step approach that should give everyone something to sleep on (Harvard Health).

Hope this helps.

Happy sleeping :D
