Do you ever find yourself downing buckets of coffee in a fruitless push to feel perky? Or perhaps find yourself in desperate need of a nap more than you’d like to admit? You’re not alone. Almost half of people in the US report feeling sleepy during the day between three and seven days every single week.

But if you’re in a perpetual state of drowsiness, fear not. Luckily, the guys at AsapSCIENCE have put together a 14-minute video detailing, what they call, "the ultimate guide to feeling less tired."


The video starts with the obvious q euestion: are you getting enough sleep? Most evidence suggests that consistently catching seven to eight hours of sleep every night is optimal for feeling fresh and cognitively sharp during the day. Despite this, over one-third of people in the US don’t get enough sleep, according to the CDC.  

However, as the video explains, it can get a little more complicated than this. Check out the video below for more info.
