  1. If you have an extreme need to stay wide awake for an extended period of time or are suffering from narcolepsy, you can take modafinil (sometimes known as Provigil/Alertec/Modavigil/Modalert) to stay awake.

    Pilots in the Air Force use it when they need to stay alert.

  2. Cup of strong tea (black tea works well) or your choice of energy drink plus a quick power nap. It takes a little while for the caffeine to hit your brain — so down the drink and then lie down immediately, setting the alarm for 20 minutes. When you awaken (hopefully) somewhat refreshed, the caffeine should also be kicking in. Wash face with really cold water. Do some jumping jacks to get the heart pumping. Hydrate. Eat a relatively healthy snack, ideally protein.

    If you're open to prescription drugs, you could take Adderall (mixed amphetamine salts) — not the XR kind. It's a stimulant used to treat ADHD. But of course it's unwise to do this without first seeing a doctor and getting a prescription.

  3. Apple

    Coffee's caffeine definitely provides a better morning wake-up than the fructose in an apple, but either choice offers complicated benefits. If you exercise at the start of your day, an apple supplies enough fuel for an hour-long workout. If you make apples a regular part of your diet, your breathing can improve. Drinking coffee before a morning workout delays the use of glycogen as muscle fuel. Instead, you'll start by burning fat.

    Apples can bolster your health in ways that benefit early morning activities. Apples contain high levels of phytonutrients, antioxidants that give apple skin its color. Eating apples regularly improves your breathing. If you eat more than two apples weekly, your bronchial tubes react less violently to irritants and your risk of asthma falls, according to an article published in "Nutrition Journal" in 2004. Flavonoids in apples improve lung function, protecting you from lung cancer and from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. If you eat five or more apples every week, your lungs could hold 138 milliliters more air during a forced expiratory volume test, compared to someone who doesn't eat apples.
