    If getting through a day with just a few hours of sleep is inevitable, everydayhealth.com offers this suggestion to help you feel better until you can hit the hay.
     
    Drink Water
     
    Though staying hydrated doesn’t have a direct effect on wakefulness, it can prevent compounding the effects of insomnia with the annoying physical symptoms that come with mild dehydration, like a dry mouth and lethargy.
