coke or heroin is a GOOD choice... just snort/shooot some and you are VIGILANT! just joking... i mean sleep is not only 8 hours... u can have maybe 10-11 hours if u manage time and youll be better in no time

Take a few minutes ever half hour or so and do deep breathing exercises. Get up and walk around, stretch, and engage in a quick dialogue with a coworker. This usually helped me in my office job.

if you can listen to some upbeat music, this helps or drinking lots of ice cold water throughout the day. I always get super tired after lunch and i just drink some water or walk around and stretch for a minute. You can always go outside for a few minutes also in this weather you will wake up in a second!

Go outside and take a brisk walk when you feel drousy and think about a new career. Your job is boring you to death.

go to bed early, exercise in the morning, eat fruit everyday and make sure u dont sit constantly in a chair all day, it will make u feel fatigue and also dont eat a heavy lunch. if none of the above you may want to look at the type of job your doing.
