    sleep?

    why am i on hexus at... 3:35 AM? not sure myself really, apart from the lasst week or two i havent been able to sleep untill stupid times like 5:30am even thoughi goto bed about 1-2:30am usually ........ ..................... .......................................................................................
    the worst thing about trying to sleep is that its boring, very very very very very boring.
    maybe i cant sleep becuase i keep thinking about stuff but i just cant stop
    also my dad snores, which i can hear quite loudly....
    decided about 5 mins ago i wont be asleap any time soon (maybe within 2 hours...) so thought id stick the pc on - hopefully not waking up my mums so she can shout at me, which very likely she would, very verrry loudly. gogint to leave it on downnloading ut2k4 and with winamp playing as loud as it goes (for some reson it helps me sleep )

    any one else having trouble sleeping?

    also i have a job interview tomorrow quite early (1pm!), knowing what im like ill be so tired and miss it, and its a very nice job that i very much want

    yea, me too. I have bad problems but its all because of my computer. lol. Its because I stay up too late on it. And I shouldnt but I agree with you, getting to sleep is boring. I wish I never had to sleep, its a 1/3 of ur life wasted.

    I find that reading helps..., thing is if u listen to music it will keep u awake unless u r completely exhausted. But if ur trying to get to sleep and ur not tired...I dunno. I think best way is to get urself out of bed really early say maybe only having 4-5 hours sleep. Then the following night, force urself to bed at say...11pm...

    Jus try it.
    Ive done it before and it feels wonderful waking up early and having a good nights sleep.
    Signatures are stupid

    I'm constantly tired, yet I can never sleep when I need to (e.g. during the night, before a long day at uni).

    A few people made a link between my lack of sleep and watching the tv/using the pc. During the week, I've cut down alot on watching television/films, and I only spend an hour or two on the PC, browsing forums, and reading my emails.

    I slowly restarted my exercise routines again, just after christmas. I couldn't exercise for the last year or so up until recently, so someone else made a reference to how my lack of exercise may have responsible for my lack of sleep. However, my poor sleeping patterns have stretched back to since I was in school (7 years or so).

    None of the above have helped me sleep any better, neither has horlicks, milo, ovaltine, margerine, or bactine. It gets frustrating when you skip a night of sleeping just because you don't want to suffer the disappointment of not being able to sleep. So to all the people who cannae sleep - I know how you feel :>

    Well i have been having a mad night. Got a job interview at 9am and the adrenaline has been running round my body keeping me up. Problem is I'll probably let out so many yawns in the interview!!

    I like sleep, but hate it when I don't get any, or I get 'on/off' nights.

    unno i sometimes have that problem... a couple of pepole have said to me that because u have been thinkink while using ur computer ur mind will carry on thinking for a couple of hours after that..
    so say if u go to bed at 1 normally.. and u go straight from ur puter to ur bed.... instead of doing that
    leave ur coputer at 11 and go and d sumthing else.. read a book. have a bth.. etc... see if that makes a difference it worked for me cause im really bad i will stay up all night and think bout totally random things... but im slowly getting a sleeping pattern back

    how can sleep be boring? u get to think about the day and what u're gunna do tomorrow, you get to dream about things u'd like to do but cant and just generally get away from the world.

    The only time i find it hard to sleep is when i've got sumit on my mind, like now, things going round and round in my head and no way to stop them without killing someone.... *ahem*

    in the end i just drift off thinking about all the brutal ways i could torture said person

    You must have very violent dreams then! Is this said person who we were talking about last night?

    I have difficulty sleeping sometimes, so I just lie in bed watching a video or something till I fall asleep (my TV turns itself off once video's finish, so better than watching a DVD). It's normally Red Dwarf and as I've seen them all before, I don't havce to concentrate to find it funny.

    yah-har. Sleep is good, although i seem to be getting less and less of it. I guess that's what happens when you get older.

    well i like sleeping.. but its seems to that people on hexus that have more than 500 posts are either an admin/moderator or they live on the hexus that is to say that all day long the click refresh or just surf the forum looking for something to respond to until the early morning.

    just something my...research has "unearthed".

    (admins/moderators are exsept from my research cos its their job to stay on hexus to moderate)

    Umm, right... Only once have I been up late (i.e. all night) and it certainly wasn't due to Hexus. I did however post on here at something silly like 4am though...

    And I may have IE running most of the day in the background whilst at work, but so what? I have a lot to say!

    "how can sleep be boring?"

    Its the trying to get to sleep part that is boring, I think. Well it is for me anyway! I'm not sure what goes on, but every few years I cannot get to sleep sunday nights O_o. I just end up lying there counting down how many hours sleep I have left.
