Staying alert on the road – no win no fee* in Cowdenbeath
You should always be well rested and alert before you get into your car for any journey. However, on longer journeys it can be unavoidable that you will start to feel tired. Driving can be exhausting as you must remain alert and focused for such a long period of time, and on a longer journey it is understandable that your body would start to flag after a little while. Here are some tips on staying awake and alert for as long as possible when you are on the road.
- Go to sleep. If you are starting to flag and feel yourself becoming sleepy, then the most effective thing to do is to go to sleep. If you have any opportunity whatsoever to pull over and take a nap then you should do this as your first option. Even if you only take 20 minutes, this will help you to stay safe and alert when you get back on the road.
- Eat something. Sometimes a quick boost of energy can perk you up and make you feel more awake for a while. If you have anything to eat with you then take a quick break and eat something, preferably something with plenty of protein or carbohydrate, to give you the boost you need to continue.
- Try coffee or energy drinks. This should be lower down on your list of priorities, as these drinks will only give you a temporary rush and you can burn out once the initial rush has worn off, but caffeine can help you to push through for the last 20 minutes or so of a journey.
- Get out of the car. Pull over for a second and get out of the car, walk around a little, splash your face with water, or simply wet the insides of your wrists with cool water. This will all help to give you a temporary but helpful boost that will keep you alert for a little while longer.
