I found out that I have to edit my coursework today, which will probably take me more than 7 hours, meaning I'll have to take a all nighter. For the past week, I've been sleeping for 5 hours on average, I'm just so tired and want to sleep. I have no energy to do more work.

Any advice on how I had be motivated to do work while being sleep deprived? Thanks (:

Train yourself with alarms to power nap for the length of a sleep cycle or two, also if you're really tired but can't do this, just lie down for a bit, studies have shown that even just resting like this can have quite a few of the benefits sleep provides
Also, reward yourself with something every so often, especially if those things have sugar or caffeine in (although you'll feel like crap in the morning, so I don't recommend too much of this)

I feel like If I lie down for a bit I'll end up falling asleep, but I'll try that out! And thanks for your advice (:
