Whether it's because you stayed up late watching Netflix, or you decided to stay at the bar for that last round of drinks, or hey, you simply have trouble sleeping, it's safe to say you've probably been at work or school and felt really tired when you need to get some stuff done. Been there, my friends. Been there. Figuring out how to focus when you're tired seems impossible, but trust me, it's not. And if you aren't able to just say "screw it all" and go back to bed for the day, tips and tricks to keep you on point are oh-so-necessary.
To add to that, you know what's rather unfortunate, but maybe not so surprising? According to the National Safety Council, 43 percent of workers are sleep-deprived. That's a whole lot of us, y'all. While the goal will always be to consistently get a good night's rest — around seven to nine hours each night — the truth is that plenty of people seem to fall under the mark.
Until you can bank on all the right rest, if you're at work or studying for an exam right now, and feeling loopy levels of tired, give yourself a few moments to try some of these focus hacks to get you through the day until you can get back under the covers and sleep it off.
