Body to Tired for Brain to Work

I started a very tiring full-time job for the Christmas season 2 weeks ago, and need hacks to help me concentrate on the college courses I'm taking during nights and weekends.

I'm on my feet all day and get up at 6am (not a morning person), so I have been exhausted during the week. I have today off and last night I crawled into bed at 9 and slept a whole 13 hours to recover from the week's work!
I was hoping to spend last night working on assignments that were late because I couldn't get them done for a Wednesday night class, but my brain and body were too tired to perform.
It's post-midterms so anyone familiar with that knows that it's pretty much non-stop assignments until the term ends. I'm worried that I'm going to tank my classes if this exhaustion doesn't abate. I don't want to quit because i need the money to pay next term's tuition, and I haven't had luck finding a more sedentary job.
Can you guys give me any hacks to help me restore my fatigued body and mind as effectively as possible so I can focus better on school? Some ideas I have so far is to get more comfortable shoes, drink less coffee and more herbal tea at work, and to take baths to soothe my muscles when i get home.
