Even if the book is interesting and entertaining he might still sleep. By the time he reads such book and then he switch to study his text, he might sleep off

You need to condition your mind and brain....why?....because Reading is a mind game.

1. First of all, convince your mind on why do you have to read the books..... what grades do you aim to get?....what type of results do you wish to achieve ? ....how many pages or topics do you wish to cover before starting?....having these mindset will help you.....WRITE THEM DOWN AND PUT IT BESIDE YOU.


2. You cant cheat nature! It's more easier and better if you take a rest/sleep prior to the reading time or in betweens. But if you still feel dizziness , pause the reading ,move to where people read in group, before sleeping tell them to wake you in the next (say 20minutes at most). You eyes should be clear by then. DONT DO IT ALONE O! I REPEAT grin so that you don't wake up the next day...lol



3. have you observed or discovered the best time you realised is ideal that you assimilate better?? Note it and religiously follow it.


4. Have you noticed if you are trying to follow someone's else reading pattern? Don't be a copycat.... Stick strictly to what suite you best and apply commitment.


5. After all this things, if you see no changes then you need a strong willed commitment.

You will have to force yourself o...and do anything to keep you going so far it's what you have to do.... you are in already...

Take snacks as you read!

Walk around as you read!

Move to where serious students read.

Don't overload yourself, read No2 again.

Some Simple Tips to Avoid Dozing Off During Reading:

1. Understand how your body works. Are you a morning person or a night owl?

2. Plan your reading time in accordance with your schedule and mental disposition.

3. Ensure you get enough rest before you commence reading. Sleep is a sign of stress and assimilation would definitely be poor.

4. Remove all sources of distraction for the period you have set aside to read.

5. Avoid ingesting substances to keep you awake. Your body is always at its best when it is allowed to function naturally.

6. When you feel tired, sleep. Don't push your body too much!

7. When you feel tired all the time, try exercising, watching your diet or talk to your doctor.

Hope this helps . . . cool

sleep well, stay fresh, take a cold bath and then go and read.

Note: it's not about how long, it's about how efficient

No one rises without being helped in life. Therefore I pray that from today, Destiny helpers, destiny sponsors, destiny promoters, destiny lifters and destiny announcers shall locate you before the end of this month. Your confidence in the Lord is restored. Day by day, men shall come to help you. You shall grow great. You shall wax strong. You shall enjoy uncommon prosperity from now henceforth by the reason of God's sure mercy. Men shall give to you in abundance, above and beyond your expectations. You shall not experience any disgrace before your celebration. Receive that unique and special miracle today and for the rest of your life. Good morning.

The reason you keep falling asleep when reading is this; you find is boring or stressful.
You have to make it a fun process else no remedy will work.

This is a valid question! you will have to find a way around it, such as sleeping early to wake up at least an hour or more before lecture time to read. Personally, i am a night owl and did not have issues with this issue. I know some of my friends who wake up by 4:30am and start jacking before they go for lectures. Plan your time, there is a way around it!
