Denny's Daily Zinger: How to Deal With an ‘All-Nighter’

In college and in the Army, I had to deal with all-nighters. And occasionally with a nasty personal emergency.

I strongly urge you to download and file Heidi Mitchell's Wall Street Journal interview with Dr. Eric Olson of the Mayo Clinic:

What's the Best Way to Pull an All-Nighter?
Sometimes You Just Can't Avoid Staying Up.
How to Best Manage the Experience

Among the tips:

  • Intake of coffee and caffeine—when's best.
  • How sugar highs can turn into sugar lows.
  • What are healthy snacks?
  • What not to eat.
  • How to keep awake when driving.
  • What room in the house should you avoid?
  • The morning after and the second wind.
  • When to finally turn in.

[An all-nighter is] a killer. As you get older, it gets harder to bounce back. And if you're pulling all-nighters with any regularity, it does have effects on your all around health and diet. —Eric Olson, co-director of the Mayo Clinic's Center for Sleep Medicine in Rochester, Minn.

Final tip: Have this piece readily available for friends, relatives and colleagues whenever they are roped into all-nighter. They'll thank you for it.
