      This is a group costume than can accommodate any large group. With a list of 100 Batman villains you have plenty of options to choose from. You can go old school with a forgotten villain like Doctor Hurt, go with something in the middle like the Riddler, or go with the most recent movie villain and choose Bane. There are so many options with this one you can’t go wrong!

      3. Three Blind Mice

        This costume is perfect for a group of three. Create your own canes, grab a headband with mouse ears, and throw on a black outfit and you’re set. You never know who you will run into at the Halloween party, so don’t forget the sunglasses.

        4. The Sims

          Another great idea for a group costume this Halloween. This costume is cheap, and you can have an unlimited number of people in your group. Don’t forget the true sign of a Sim — the green diamond.

            Each member of your group can pick their favorite cereal and become the cartoon on the box! The best thing about this costume is you won’t get hungry throughout the night. Grab a box of your cereal and you’re set!

              This group costume might take a little more time to put together, but you will definitely get complimented on your efforts. If you’re going with the traditional Mario Kart game, then this is perfect for a group of eight.

                This simple costume will turn all the heads. If you don’t already have one, pick up a nude-colored dress, and then all you need is a wig! Another costume with that works for any sized group.

                8. Piñata

                      This is the kind of costume only those who love horror movies can pull off. If you’ve seen the movie you know how creepy these characters are. If you want to dress up as Jack and his family, the costume is great for a group of three (especially if you have a young child), and the twins costume is best for two. Make the costumes as creepy as you can!

                      10. Characters from Kill Bill

                        This group costume can come from many different parts of the movie. Depending on what part of the movie you want to dress up as you can have a large or small group. As you can see in this picture, you don’t even need to be a main character from the movie! And come on, who doesn’t want to dress up as a badass for Halloween?

                        11. American Ninja Warriors

                          12. Shark Week

                                                                How to Keep Yourself Awake at Work Without Caffeine

                                                                Keeping yourself awake at work can be a real challenge when you’re bored, exhausted or sleep-deprived.

                                                                But before you reach for that can of Red Bull, bottle of Mountain Dew, or pot of coffee, try these healthy remedies to stimulate your 5 different senses and help you stay awake at work:

                                                                Sight – Visual Stimulation

                                                                The first thing you do when you wake up is opening your eyes, so your visual stimulation is very important to keeping your energy level high.

                                                                1. Maximize your exposure to light.

                                                                Your body’s internal rhythm is regulated by the amount of light you receive. The greater your exposure, the more alert you will feel.

                                                                Open the shades and let in the sunlight. Step outside or look out the window. Turn on all the artificial lights in your office or around your work space.

                                                                2. Exercise your eyes (or give them a break).

                                                                Roll your eyes up and down, side to side and diagonally. Rotate them clockwise and then counterclockwise. Squeeze them shut and then open them wide. Do this several times.

                                                                Reading and sitting in front of a computer screen for long periods can lead to eye fatigue.

                                                                Take regular breaks with deliberate blinking and looking out into the distance.

                                                                3. Take note of your environment.

                                                                Learn to enjoy people-watching. Observe their activities, speech, body language and interactions with others. Notice the details of building, trees and other objects around you, including their color, shape and size.

                                                                By doing this, you’re not only relaxing your eye muscles but also calming your mind.

                                                                Hearing – Auditory Stimulation

                                                                What you hear or listen to have direct effect on your brain. This is why we feel so annoyed and sometimes angry when we hear construction noise when we’re working.

                                                                4. Engage in conversation.

                                                                Talk to a friend or colleague. Trade funny stories. Discuss your business venture, a creative idea, the latest political scandal, or any other topic that interests you.

                                                                Practice mindful listening to what you and the other person are saying. Tune into the tone, volume and content of the conversation.

                                                                Learn how to practice better listening from this guide:

                                                                Why Listen to Reply Instead of Understand Is the Key to Failure

                                                                5. Listen to upbeat music.

                                                                Try hip hop, rock or jazz to keep you alert. Instrumental, non-distracting music works best.

                                                                Sing, whistle, and hum along if you can. Plug in the earphones if you must.

                                                                Smell – Olfactory Stimulation

                                                                If you’re feeling sleepy and suddenly smell the coffee, you’ll probably feel more energetic. This is why smell is an influential stimulation.

                                                                6. Work your nose.

                                                                Aroma therapists recommend essential oils of peppermint (to boost energy), rosemary (to build awareness), eucalyptus (to increase oxygen), cedarwood  (to activate your mind), and cinnamon (to improve your reaction time).

                                                                If you don’t have essential oils on hand, you can use lotions or burning candles that provide the same scents.

                                                                Advertising

                                                                Citrus like lemons, limes, grapefruits and oranges are also natural olfactory stimulants. Get a whiff of these citrus scents to stay awake.

                                                                Taste – Gustatory Stimulation

                                                                If you want an energetic day at work, you can’t let your tongue feeling plain and flavorless.

                                                                7. Have a good breakfast.

                                                                Start off with the most important meal of the day.

                                                                Think fresh, light and healthy: bran cereals, wholegrain breads, fruits, and yogurt.

                                                                Nix the heavy stuff like sausages, greasy eggs or pancakes.

                                                                8. Drink lots of water.

                                                                Keep a glass or bottle of H2O near you and sip from it throughout the day. Dehydration can leave you feeling tired, sluggish and sleepy.

                                                                So make sure you drink enough water throughout the day. Not sure how much to drink? This can help you:

                                                                9. Eat energy-boosting snacks.

                                                                Nuts and fruits (like bananas, apples and strawberries) are sure bets. Pairings with staying power include baby carrots with a low-fat cream cheese dip; celery sticks with peanut butter; red peppers with hummus; and plain yogurt with granola.

                                                                Avoid carb-filled, sugary snacks that make you crash and leave you feeling tired.

                                                                Touch – Tactile Stimulation

                                                                Last but not least, your sense of touch will make you physically feel more energetic and less stressful.

                                                                10. Splash cold water on your face.

                                                                Do this in the morning, during bathroom breaks and in the afternoon. Being exposed to cold water pushes your body to adjust and regulate its internal temperature, which in turn keeps you alert.

                                                                This works the same as you take a cold shower to increase mood and alertness. Take a look at this article to learn more about it:

                                                                Apply pressure to, massage, or tap on the stimulation points of your body. These include the top of your head, the back of your neck, the back of your hand (between the thumb and index finger), just below the knee and your earlobes.

                                                                Watch this video to learn about the acupressure points you can try:

                                                                Move away from your chair and stand, walk, run or climb the stairs. Feel the earth under your feet. Stretch and twist. Do jumping jacks, lunges, push-ups and back bends.

                                                                And if you need to move more discreetly, wiggle your feet, bounce your knee up and down, scrunch your toes, or cross your legs.

                                                                You can also try some simple stretches and exercises at your desk:
