• Get up and walk around to get your blood flowing.
  • If you're doing a task where you can't get up, just flex your muscles.
  • Talk to a co-worker.
  • Strategically use caffeine before the critical phases of your mission, which can give you a slight boost of energy to get you through the short term.
  • Eating a snack, chewing gum and eating sunflower seeds are other ways to keep more alert.
  • But the best, and only true way, to combat fatigue is to get some sleep.
