Posted on

We asked members of the BuzzFeed Community to tell us their strangest sleeping habits. Here are some of the best, most insane responses.

1. This lover of small things.

Watching videos on youtube of people cooking miniature food on a little stove with mini utensils. It makes me so zen.

2. This Kylie Jenner impersonator.

sometimes i envision that i've body-swapped with Kylie Jenner and she keeps trying to get her body back while i'm spending all her money. usually puts me to sleep pretty fast. it helps if you have a kind of back story. like, why do you want to be her? can you convince your family that you're her? and have some kind of idea where you want it to go. idk how many times ive just been wasted with Khloe making fun of Kim. its so entertaining.

10. This head-butter in denial.

My boyfriend 'used to' lie on his front and repeatedly head-butt his pillow (I don't understand how that would help either but apparently it worked!!)…he doesn't do it to fall asleep anymore but I've caught him doing it a few times in the early hours when he's already asleep, he doesn't believe me when I tell him though!

14. This person who has probably stumbled upon a lucrative career choice.

17. This prime number enthusiast.

If I can't get to sleep, I will count prime numbers. I hate, hate, hate math, barely squeaked through grade 9 math, and it's so boring, it puts me right out. I usually start at about 133 and I'm down way before I get to 201.

18. The person responsible for this George R.R. Martin meets J.K Rowling fantasy.

I make up fantasies in my head.
So one night I'll be hunting with the Winchesters, others I'll be chilling with Jaqen H'Ghar in Game of Thrones, or sometimes I may be getting it on with Draco Malfoy. *happily sighs*
(Sometimes acting them out whilst laying down helps.)
