Lent is almost here and if you’re a pious Catholic, chances are you will be attending a prayer vigil. Let’s face it, in this kind of event, many of us get sleepy.
You may have different reasons for being sleepy…like you had a rough day at the office or you didn’t get enough sleep because you watched your favorite TV show all night long.
I have here some tips on how to stay awake during a prayer vigil on Holy Week.
Get a good night sleep so you wont feel tired. If you cant fall asleep, try imagining sheeps and count them.
These drinks will stimulate your body. By then, you’ll be ready to hear what the priest will say!
You can drink it or splash it on your face. Either way, it can keep you awake.
Stretching improves blood circulation. Get out of the pew and start dragging your legs if youre starting to fall asleep.
Sit straight and try not to put your back on the backrest.
