Tuesdays can often be hella worse than Mondays.

You spent all of yesterday re-adjusting back to work, you stayed up too late watching Netflix and then you didn't even have time to grab a coffee on your way to work. 

Wrecked.

Your eyes are twitching, your vision is blurry and you hate everyone in the office. 

But that's all about to change – with these simple hacks.

1. Discreet accupressure

Accupressure gets blood flowing which in turn will will wake you the fuck up and keep you alert.

Pull down on your earlobes, put pressure on your hand between your thumb and index finger and use your hands to put some further pressure behind your knees. 

But be discreet or your coworkers will think you're cray.
