Hour 14…Hang in There!

Readerbuzz in Spring

It is Hour 14. I’m Deb Nance at Readerbuzz and I’m here as your host for this hour.

Last hour I shared a few stay-awake hints. How did last hour’s hints go? Helpful? Not so?

Here are a couple more Secret Ways to Stay Awake When You Are Very, Very Tired:

Tickle the Top of Your Mouth Cavity. Rub your tongue against the top front area of your mouth.  It may feel strange, but it will give you a quick, annoying nerve jolt that can genuinely help to keep you awake.

Chew Ice. If you chew ice, it’s impossible to fall asleep.

Chew Anything. Chewing anything makes your body think it is about to eat. To prepare, your body will release insulin which will make you more alert.

Smell Something. Rosemary is good. Peppermint. Coffee. Smelling something strong will stimulate your nervous system and reduce tiredness.

  1. On the other hand…the scents are lovely….Wish someone would start a big pot of coffee….

  2. For some reason my comment isn’t going through on Geeky Bloggers Book Blog’s Mini Challenge. Says something like no inpit file specified. Anyone know what to do?

  4. I have the same problem when i tried to leave my comment, if anyone knows what to do, it’ll be very much appreciated! Thank you!

  5. I am also having a problem with Geeky Bloggers, it keeps telling me there are too many links, even when I omitted any and all links 🙁
    And I was so excited about that challenge.

  6. Oh boy. I am starting to crash. I just finished my second book. It was really good. I gave it four stars on good reviews. I now have three book reviews I have to do so far (I finished a book last night). I may read for another half hour or so then retire. Can’t stay up for much longer. Here’s my update post–http://indiewritergirl0329.wordpress.com/2014/04/27/dewey-decimal-3-dewey-read-a-thon-update-3/
