Well,there are many ways you can stay awake while driving.Here's a few of them : ~Chew Gum. It stops the yawning, which stops the dozing off. ~Keep your taste buds awake, drink an energy drink like coffee because it contains caffeine. ~Sing along. Or, have a conversation with someone in the car. ~Take enough rest.
Hope it helps.I got that from my experience when i drove my car to Checotah,Oklahoma. :)
Here's what I did when I drove from my hometown of Louisville, Kentucky to my uncles home in El Paso, Texas. I bought some caffeine pills and I took two of those, and when they wore off, I jest kept drink caffeinated teas and coffee with sugar.
you could do like i use to do put your head out the window and keep on trucking - i have been known to go from California to Kentucky non stop - Fla. to Kentucky and back and forth 3 times in a row non stop -- if you get tired Get off the road dont put your life and or others in jeopardy ...
Hi, there. I have a number of long distance driving techniques. I prefer to drive non-stop. A week before the trip, discontinue energy drinks if you regularly use them. After 4 hours on the road, I drink a Red Bull and take a Goody powder, and continue at 4 hour intervals. My car is packed with light, nutritional snacks that don't cause sluggishness, fruits, nuts, yogurt, crackers, chocolate. At the inevitable fast food stop, eat light and forget the fries. Drink water and coffee alternately. Satellite radio and a good sound system really help. You can sing along with gusto. It will boost your spirits and your energy. Shake your arms and legs out, safely, and one at a time, as you are driving to keep your circulation going. Jog a bit around the rest areas before you get back in the car. Keep track of your mileage so you can see how much progress you are making. Pull over at the very FIRST sign you are really not able to drive safely anymore. Safe and happy trails.
7 or so GOOD 1's. Get legs moving, fast as u can w/ 2 sets of high knee lifts running in place to get the blood moving briskly in the lower half of ur body. Slap the face crisply to help w/ the dead head effect(pull over duh). Energy drink or = And a SMALL snack w/ a lot of little pieces to eat 1 by 1. THE best is LOUD hard progressive rock that is intricate, ripping, & non-redundant enough to keep ur mind on it. Pick an instrument to follow. isolate & concentrate. Even better if u don't it to keep u uncomfortable. Play a license plate or K. Bacon game or =/ Start an argument. talk religion/politics! if ur not alone . Keep the windows down if u can.
It is just safer to pull into a rest area or gas station and take a nap. Driving tired is as bad as driving impaired or being distracted... Actually, if you are tired enough, your brain will trigger sleep.
when you are driving for a long time the best way to stay awake is change the position of the back rest after some time and dont keep your eyes on the road for more than a min look at your rearview mirror side mirror taking the traffic in consideration have lots of water eat lite so you dont feel drowsy and dont be in the same posture for a long time do change your posture from time to time keep your window down for some time and then roll it back up if you keep on staring at the road constantly your eyes are bound to get tired and would close off it would be the same as if you keep on looking at a single object for a long time slowly the other things which are arround start to disappear
