    Get yourself a sleep schedule

    Receiving appropriate sleep is one of the best natural remedies that can keep one away from feeling drowsy during the day. Make a regular habit of going to bed at the same time everyday so that your body gets used to this, instead of sleeping during the day.

    Try to get enough sleep

    On having a sleep schedule ready, you got to ensure that you get enough sleep. Not all are alike, so every individual would need different amount of sleep to function nicely. There can be people who sleep for 10 hours to function well and then there are others that can function adequately even after sleeping for 5 hours. So find the right time and situate your sleep schedule around it.

    Try ignoring alcohol and caffeine

    Caffeine acts as wonders when you really need energy, but is really terrible in sustaining that throughout the day. Consuming too much of alcohol or caffeinated drinks can essentially make it problematical for you to fall asleep. So, try to have a tea or coffee in the morning as it helps take away the drowsiness.
