    Hi there anyone work nights and what do you do to help stay awake. I'm working nights and struggle to keep awake on them and sleep when I finish. How do you stay awake on them.

    Get in touch help keep me awake. Work in a factory and got to keep an eye on machines so need help staying awake because if boss catches me asleep its not good

    Get enough sleep, eat a decent meal before you go (get some energy in your body!), keep active. Nightshifts are pretty tough if you dont have a good structured scedule surounding it. Really depends on what kind of work you do, if your sitting mostly inside somewhere I can see why your having a problem. I quite enjoy working at night if I can be outside and move around some, the fresh air and activity really helps.

    I'm a night owl and don't sleep much in general so I have no problem. Wife works 3rd shift in the ER. She drinks the largest cup of black coffee with nothing in it, and will either consume a 5 hour energy at some point or more coffee, and she finds chewing gums also helps.
