The day after never seems too bad, for some reason, but the second day after I'm completely useless, regardless of how much sleep I eventually got.
Coffee, standing up, regular exercise breaks for blood flow, and an acceptance that your brain will not be at full potential.
Lack of sleep is used as a stressor for military trainees around the world, and people can't think clearly when they are overly fatigued. The way someone acts when they are really really tired is a good indicator of their training level and innate judgement- they do the right thing (or not) when they can't think clearly enough to decide what the right thing is.
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

i guess it depends what you were doing all the previous night. i tend to just have coffee, a hot shower, go for a long walk and then try not to overdo it till i can get all the kids to bed and have an early night.
