i’ve been having trouble lately with falling asleep at work. it seems that no matter what i do, i drift off at work. actually, it happens at work, in the car (sometimes when i’m driving), and it used to happen at school. i think it has something to do with concentrating.
anyway, i’m working on that. probably need to eat better or exercise or sleep different hours or something. in the meantime, i need some advice.
today at work, i was having to fight sleep while my supervisor was explaining my job to me. i’d feel myself starting to drift, my eyes got heavy, and then i’d realize that they were closed and i’d jerk awake again. needless to say, this is not good. i like my job and want to keep it.
what i need to know is something that i can do when i feel this coming to keep myself awake so that i don’t piss off my boss. concentrating on what she’s saying just makes me drowsy. any ideas?
