Sleepless nights! Nobody wants to stay in bed tossing and turning knowing you have to be up early tomorrow. But then again, sleeping isn’t easy when your brain is working overtime. Here are 10 thoughts you will have when you can’t fall asleep.
#1 I can still get 7 hours of sleep
If I sleep right this instant, I can still manage to get 7 hours of sleep. That’s right, my body can survive on 7 hours of sleep. Wait! It’s 15 minutes already! OK. No problem, 6 hours and 45 minutes, I can do with that, if only I fell asleep this moment.
#2 I am going to be so tired tomorrow
I am going to look all tired and sick! People will wonder if I am sick. Maybe I can call in sick for work! No, I did that last week. Sigh!
It’s not unusual to worry when you realise you aren’t able to fall asleep. But what makes it worse is the anxious you get, the more trouble you will have sleeping. Thank adrenaline for that!
#3 That embarrassing thing that happened 5 years ago
Remember the time you fell in front of the whole class and tore your trousers? No? well, this is a perfect time to revisit old memories.
#4 Did I lock the door?
Did I? or did I not? Well, I don’t really have much for anyone to steal. What if a chainsaw murderer comes and tries to kill me? Arrgh!! Who cares? At least I won’t have to go to work tomorrow.
#5 What was that noise?
You left the windows open? Great! Now you can enjoy the wind howling outside and the rustling of leaves. Or is it? You never know what hides in the dark and at this point we bet you are too scared to get up and close the window. Besides, whatever it was, must have already entered the room.
Feel your sheets sliding yet?
#6 I have to pee
Damn those 2 litres of water! All they make you do is pee! And I don’t see my skin getting better. Wait, how much coffee did I drink today?
#7 I am not comfy
It’s too hot inside the blanket. One leg out, too cold! This pillow isn’t soft enough. It’s too bright. Why can’t I ever get comfy? Why does everything happen to me?
#8 Today’s news: Things that will never happen
When I become a president, I will bring peace to the whole world. But on second thoughts, politics isn’t for me. I would rather be a ninja with super sneaking abilities. Yes! I’ll be the best ninja there is. Maybe, I’ll get my own movie someday.
#9 I haven’t set my alarm
Why do I always forget to set my alarm? Where is my phone? I guess a little bit of Facebook wouldn’t hurt. Why is my ex going out again? We were so happy! Everything feels so wrong, maybe I should just sleep!
#10 How do I sleep?
It’s already 5 in the morning and I still haven’t slept! But I can still sleep for 2 more hours or maybe I should skip work today. But how do I sleep? Okay, let’s count sheep.
