Besides copious amounts of caffeine, 5hr energy, etc. What are some things you do to keep yourself up when you need to study? Not necessarily something super strong. Looking something to use infrequently. Not like an every night thing.
I was thinking, perhaps some nice air freshener? Or Vicks or something? Soft, non-distracting music or talk radio (low volume background noise)?
Cold water on the face seems a little extreme. I'm looking for simple, non-extreme things, that tend to keep you a little more motivated for a little longer. Keep your attention just a wee bit higher.
I hope the question makes sense!
I'm not trying to do some sort of "sprinting" study sessions. I'm trying to do more marathon, steady studying, long hours.
Try peppermint oil, it is a natural source that can help keep you awake. It is the smell so you can just either but a little on your neck or get a peppermint oil type freshener. Or you good probably but some drops in a small pot with water and let it simmer.
