Jump Out of Bed

Though it might seem silly, the literal act of jumping out of bed can help shake off drowsiness. Doing so stimulates your sympathetic nervous system to send more blood to your heart, which increases heart rate, contractility, and overall cardiac output. In a matter of seconds, you will feel ready to face your day.
