But as tired as I am, I can't leave work. I still have two and a half more hours of what feels like forever. In reality, it's not a big deal. But if you've ever hit that wall, you know what I'm talking about.
So, what do I do to get through the rest of the day?

selfie of myself for this post.
The moment I start feeling tired, I chug back a glass of water. It helps keep me hydrated and makes me feel energized. It also forces me to go to the bathroom a few too many times which, when you're trying to stay awake, is a good thing.
Have a Snack
Something light and not full of carbs. I find an apple or another kind of fruit also helps keep me energized. Trail mix is a great option too!
It may feel like the day is never going to end but in reality you're almost there. Plus, as tired as I feel, I'd rather have a job to be tired at than not have a job at all.
Avoid the Clock
I find that looking at the time only makes time go by even slower. I just ignore the clock. If I can't see that it's only 3:02pm than it must not be only 3:02pm.
Listen to Music
Technically, I'm not supposed to listen to music at work. I know, I know. It blows. But, I do it anyway. Really quietly (did you know that I have supersonic hearing?). It helps the time go by faster, keeps me awake and it makes me want to work.
What are your tips for staying awake after hitting the 3 o'clock wall?
