How not to fall asleep at the wheel? We collected all the effective tips


What to do if you are falling asleep at the wheel, but there resting is not an option? This question torments all drivers constantly: it is not only relevant for long-distance journeys, but also about travelling at night.


We have collected the most effective tips to keep you awake.

  1. Drink water.
  2. Take a few sips every five minutes, make it a mandatory ritual.

  3. Play a word game or just talk with passengers.
  4. If you are alone in the car, amazon's Alexa or other AIs offer different games to keep your mind active. They are worthy opponents, especially Alexa.

    To start playing, say: "Alexa, open word chain." (be sure that you have Alexa app on your smartphone).

  1. Concentrate on the road.
  2. It doesn't mean that you need to look at the road constantly. Watch the sceneries along the road and don't forget to look in the rearview mirrors. 🛣

  3. Open a window or turn on the AC.
  4. Fresh air will perk you up. It's easier to fall asleep if it is warm or even hot in the car. 🌬

  5. Do some exercises.
  6. Stop for a few minutes to stretch your muscles. You get too comfortable in a car, add some discomfort to your trip: squat or jump at least 30 times. 

Above all: rest before a long trip and make stops every 3-4 hours.
