19 Struggles Everyone Trying To Correct Their Sleeping Pattern Will Recognise

Congratulations. You played yourself.

Posted on

1. You’ve become way too accustomed to sleeping when the sun rises and waking up when the sun sets.


2. So your understanding of space and time has become really jumbled.


3. You get too used to the fact you don't have to get up for anything in the morning.


4. So a few days before you’re due back, you force yourself to fix your patterns.

5. You try to pull and all-nighter...


6. ...but you get too tired and end up napping, which just fucks you up even more.

7. So you experiment with extreme methods to fix this mess you've gotten yourself into.

8. And you end up calculating all the sleep you will (or most likely won't) be getting.

9. Then you question if eight hours of sleep is even a real possibility for you.

10. So you set multiple alarms because you don't trust your sleepy ass.

11. And you wake up on the first day back and struggle to find any motivation to leave your cocoon of warmth.

12. Getting dressed and travelling to work becomes much harder as you're sleep-deprived.

13. And you try to focus at work and soon realise that sufficient sleep is a necessary part of functioning.

14. You struggle to stay awake during meetings and conversations and just can't wait until you get home.

15. You get home and tell yourself you just need to make it to 9pm but end up napping as soon as you walk in the door.

16. And then you wake up at 3am and can’t fall back asleep.


17. You sit there contemplating life and all the mistakes and regrets that have brought you to this point.

18. You end up just convincing yourself that you can function on four hours' sleep.

19. But then you remember there's always caffeine and Red Bull to get you through it.
