Sleeping Habits <span style="font-size:12px;">(Edited 12/14/11 02:51AM by SusanVette)</span> Photo

Do you have any weird sleeping habits?  Some people, like the guys above, can sleep anywhere.  Not me.  Unless my room is cold and I have a fan blowing on me, I can't sleep worth a lick. 

What about you?

I like having the glow of the TV without the sound. That usually doesn't go over very big. Plus I snore like "something pre-historic"... so I've been told.

my weird sleeping habit is........I DONT SLEEP MUCH AT ALL...........3rd shift does that to a person.....
#3 | 1048 days ago

I can't sleep if it's hot, I like it cold.  Like meat-locker cold.  

Other than that, I can sleep anywhere, any time.  I'm borderline narcoleptic, I swear.  
#4 | 1048 days ago

I'm the same way with the cold. I try to keep my bedroom at a cool 59º. In the summer I sometimes sleep right in front of the AC vent.

Heh..sleep...that's cute. When I attempt to do so, it has to be freezing. I sleep with the fan on year round.

I also can't sleep with the TV on.  It's basically impossible.  However, I sometimes listen to my iPod while going to sleep.  A little Tiesto, Armin Van Buuren, or Oakenfold usually does the trick.

Funny, I don't like the cold outside, but my room has to be freezing cold and my feet out of the blankie to sleep well.

That's half my problem with sleeping in the heat ... I NEED a blanket of some kind over me when I sleep, even if it's hot.

I only use a satin sheet and don't like wearing any clothes when I'm sleeping, call me a creep, I don't care. I like to feel free and it helps with keeping my body temperature cooled down.

I have to sleep with the tv on but not the sound. I also like to have the ceiling fan on.

This reminds me....I must have my sheets tucked in at the foot of the bed.  If my feet aren't covered and secure, I can't sleep.  I also can't sleep with socks on.  Not sure how common that is, but I can't do it.

I also need my sheets and blankets to stay neat. I like the sheet tucked in, and I will wake up if I feel like my blankets are messed up.

Violent sleeper, eh?  That was me BA - before alcohol. 
#21 | 1048 days ago

I can sleep pretty much anywhere.   (Ticks my wife off when I can be snoring within minutes of my head hitting the pillow.)   I do talk in my sleep, and I also walk, but nothing random, it's usually if I need a drink of water, or to use the restroom, I'll go straight there and back..

And regarding the talking, when my kids were younger, and we've had them in our room, they also talk in their sleep, which freaks my wife out when we "converse" with each other.

(Since I know I talk in my sleep, I know I can never have any secrets.)

1)  nicely chilled.      for me, a blanket is a MUST as is a cold pillow.
2)  total darkness. 
3)  total silence   so please STFU
under these conditions i will  fall asleep in less than 5 minutes.  i am dead to the world for 6  to 6-1/2  hours.

I sleep great, I just don't know when it will happen. I've heard of people talking in their sleep... crazy me, I apparently type in mine.

What is this sleep you speak of?
#27 | 1048 days ago

(Edited by Jess)
 Yea, if I'm ever able to get any sleep, I'll come tell you.


Actually that's not true. Here's my deal...
  • I can't sleep with a TV on, so if we stay in a hotel and there's a TV in our room (I don't have one in my room), it must be off in order for me to go to sleep.
  • There can be no light. We have all of our internet stuff in our room (modem, router, external hard drive) and I have to turn off the strip it's all plugged into so there are no lights. My husband even has to lay his alarm clock on its face so I can't see the numbers.
  • I can't wear anything with long sleeves to bed (but mostly nothing anyway)
  • I have to fall asleep before my husband if I expect to get any sleep - he snores like nothing I've ever heard in my life. You think I'm whining? They've sent him home from work when he's supposed to stay the night on duty so they don't have to listen to it. Once when we lived in a duplex that the master bedrooms shared a wall, he woke our neighbor up. These are true stories. He will still wake me out of a dead sleep.
  • I need at least 2 fans on at all times - the ceiling fan and a tower fan. If the power goes out in the middle of the night and the fans get turned off, it'll wake me up.
  • I can't go to sleep without first writing a list of things that need to be done the next day - otherwise I get race-brain
  • I can sleep if there's thunder and rain, but not lightning. Lightning kept me up all night last night, as a matter of fact.
Even if all of these things are in order, chances are pretty good I still won't get more than 4 hours of sleep...usually less. The really bizarre thing is the light issue. I can't sleep if there's light at night, but I get my best sleep during the daytime when either everyone's at work and school, or even up and running around the house. Light and noise don't bother me if everyone else is awake and I'm in bed.

and 1 last thing.  i start out on my stomach.  i hate having my toe nails rubbing on the sheet so i will lay there with my feet hanging over the bottom end of the bed.  usually uncovered.   over and out

- If it's cold I get cold.
- If I'm cold I can't sleep.
- In summer time and just if it's extremely hot I need a fan, but still have to sleep between the sheets, otherwise my feet get cold and I can't sleep. Darn cold feet!
- I don't lay my head on a pillow, I rest my head on my arm , but I need two or three pillows to hug, or put them to the left and right because I roll all over the bed all night.
- I turn on the TV, low volume and I fall asleep sooner.
- Tiny little wrinkles on the sheets or on my jammies don't let me sleep, and I move and jump until evertything is in place. Yeah, I'm a nightmare, now I see why nobody invited me to slumber parties

I have that same problem and im such a light sleeper that if the blankets somehow are pulled off me i wake up. pisses me off most of the time because i don't sleep enough as it is.

#33 | 1047 days ago

I must have a fan, i sleep with a fan year round.  My cover and sheets must be smooth and straight.  If there is one grain of dirt or a lint ball i cannot sleep.  My room must be cool  and my pillow cold.  And throw all that out because sometimes i just can't sleep regardless of what i do.  I learned quite a few years ago to hymotize myself to sleep,  That works most of the time.

So, I thought about this poll when I got in the bed. Sad...ugh.
Anyway, so I have to have it freezing as I've said because like the others, I can't sleep without a comforter or when it's remotely warm.
No matter where I am, in any bed, I have to sleep on the side closest to the wall.
All closet doors MUST be closed.
All lights, including but not limited to cell phone charging light, tv and dvr power lights, modem lights, have to be off or covered or I will keep staring at them.
TV can be on while I'm dozing off but has to be off completely in order for me to sleep. If I'm falling asleep on the couch while trying to listen to the tv still, I will keep turning the sound lower and lower as I get closer to sleep until there is no sound, then 5 minutes after that I will just turn it off and go get in my bed, which brings me to...
I can't sleep on a leather sofa.
I can't sleep in clothes or socks.
I can't sleep on my stomach or back. I can lay that way, but I won't ever fall asleep that way.
People can not be touching me. If it's after...and you want to cuddle, 3-5 minutes and I start rolling away. I have to have a pillow between me and whomever, esp my child though I will get up and go put her back in her bed every single time. 
I have a throw pillow that I put over my head at some point for extra darkness every night.

Personally, I don't really like to take the "HEY! LOOK AT ME!" approach and didn't find it necessary. Besides, polls are taken to a sexual place enough in here as it is - maybe people didn't really find the need to do that with this one?

Well, besides consuming too much of the beverage/other, I have a hard time sleeping in Hotels.

Otherwise, any normal bed as long as it is a little on the chilly side and a fan/Air Conditioner on for a little of the "white noise".

 I can sleep almost anywhere but only if it is like around 17-80 degrees. I can't stand it when it is too hot or cold.

I'm miserable if I am hot.  I like my room to be cool and more importantly, have a fan blowing on me....even if it's below zero out. When I'm traveling and sleeping in hotel rooms, AC has to be turned down so the room as cold as possible.
