View Full Version : How do you sleep?

Simple question.. how do you sleep?

Can share what position you sleep in, what you wear when sleeping (PJs? Boxers?,) and where/ how you like to sleep (bunk-bed? Just under the duvet instead of under the sheets, etc.)

I usually sleep submerged under covers in boxers and shirt. I sleep on my right shoulder in general. On a hot day, I'll sleep in my boxers only.

I usually sleep in a shirt but no pants. Pants are for chumps. Unless I'm sleeping in the same room as someone that I don't want to see me pantsless, then I have a pair of M&Ms men's boxers that I bought at It'Sugar for sleeping in. :3

As far as position, I'm one of those people that shift all the time, I move at least every few hours. I particularly like my side and my stomach but not a huge fan of my back. Trying to get used to it though really for a few reasons, haha.

Only boxers. I can't sleep well when I put on much clothes. I am usually half-submerged under the covers as in only my legs, but I tend to push the cover during my sleep. So I wake up with only a pillow (fourth pillow) between my legs and another over my head.

I sleep on my side, with the one arm that's on the side that I'm laying on from the forearm to my hand underneath the pillow and one leg in like this bended position shown in the picture above. The other leg straight, and the other arm in front of my face I guess.

I sleep in basketball shorts and whatever shirt I was wearing that day / put on after I take a shower, if I take a shower that night. Usually I take a shower in the afternoon or morning, though. Covers on at all times. I would prefer the monsters under my bed that are only there when I'm not looking and at night to not touch me, thanks.

I'm probably the only person insane enough to sleep with sweatpants on. Why? I have no clue. I did once, and now I do everyday. Granted, if I'm really hot, or if I feel like getting really comfy, I'll strip to my boxers. Once or twice I've gone full nude, though I lock my door in those cases. I never wear a shirt, at least.

I never use my blanket as a blanket, but rather as a comforter. And I'm always moving around. I love sleep!

I used to really, really, really enjoy sleeping in jeans even though I would wake up with sweaty as poop pants for reasons I have no clue of. I did it once, then I started doing it more often. I don't do it much these days, but I just thought it was worth replying to you saying that, because I know a lot of people who find sleeping in jeans to be really uncomfortable.

Depends on how my night goes. ;0) Usually in panties, flat on my face and all over the bed.

I can do pants after a long night but never ever socks.

August 19th, 2012, 4:22 PM
Normally, I wear a sleeveless shirt when I sleep. Whether or not I sleep with a blanket depends on the temperature outside or inside.

August 19th, 2012, 4:26 PM
I'll answer my own for once.

I sleep on my back with my arms to my sides (usually) and one leg (usually might right) bent so that my foot is resting beside, or beneath my other knee. Kinda like this middle girl:

I like to sleep under the duvet instead of under regular bedsheets. I usually wear boxer-shorts, and an oversized shirt, but if it is cold I will wear oversized PJ-pants. Very occasionally I will sleep shirtless.

I don't make noises when I sleep, nor do I move around when I sleep. Usually I wake up in the same position as I fell asleep. I'm a light sleeper.

I like to sleep in the crevice between two pillows (I dont know why, it just cradles my head so it's more comfortable) but if I dont have two pillows, I will try and flatten the oillow and sleep on the bottom of it, edge of it, or actually just below it.

August 19th, 2012, 6:14 PM
I wrap myself up really tight in the blanket and always have to be covered - I never have more than my head and maybe my shoulders out. And my arm always has to be under my pillow, and a fan has to be blowing in my face.

I toss and turn a lot but usually sleep on my stomach - never on my back. I don't wear anything but my underwear - maybe a shirt if I'm cold, but 99% of the time I sleep shirtless, and I never wear pants to bed. And I prefer the temperature on the cold side. I can't sleep at all if it's hot.

August 19th, 2012, 6:26 PM
I sleep on my left, and I have for years since my last swapover from the right caused me to get sleep paralysis. Lying on back = sleep paralysis, uhhh, front = uncomfortable because of boobs, and right, ya sleep paralysis. I may roll around in my sleep but I wake up on my left side sooo I return back there? I sleep with covers over me, always - even in the summer! I'm afraid of the things that can touch me in the night, much like Nick. I also have my hands under my pillow because it's actually really comfortable to sleep that way. Also, if I can't sleep immediately I lay on my right side for a bit, then left, then right, and by that time I get tired enough to go back to my left side to sleep. Sometimes I accidentally fall asleep on my right and I usually wake up soon after either with sleep paralysis or not.

I wear jeans all the time when I sleep! In the summer though, it's usually shorts. Sometimes I wear pajama pants, and I almost always wear a shirt.
As for how I sleep, it's: on my belly with my head turned to the side with one arm under the pillow and one leg bent. (so that my foot is touching my knee, it looks like a triangle) Doesn't matter which side, though. And I always have SOME blanket on top.

I sleep just under one blanket unless it's really cold, but for some weird reason whenever I have two, they always fall off in the night, and THEN I get even colder. :/

For me sort of depends:

Summer - hot nights, I just sleep with only shorts, nothing else, no covers, and the fan on either low or medium. Stuffed Cheetah next to me

Winter - cold or snowy nights, I sleep with warm clothing, pants-long sleeve shirt. I might turn on the heater for a few minutes until blankets warm up if the temperature is too cold. Stuffed Cheetah always with me.

Spring and Autumn - typical rains, if its not too cold I will sleep with only shorts, if its a bit to on the cooler side I will put on a t-shirt. Stuffed Cheetah next to my head. I have nightmares if the toy is not next to me at nights

I always keep my sandals on one side of the bed, in case I need a drink of water or need to the restroom. My room has to be pitched-black for me to sleep well. If I'm falling asleep any light source will bother me and take away the sleepy feeling. After sleeping for hours even light won't bother me - I will fall asleep again.

My sleep pattern is way off - I sleep for about 9 hours from 3:30am to 12:30pm. Days I need to wake up earlier I will try and fall asleep earlier usually I never succeed, and sleep less than 6 hours, after getting back home from where ever I need to go I take a long nap.

The worst sleeps I have is when I have the common cold. No matter what position I get, 5 minutes later one side of my nose will get stuffed, I switch over and 5 minutes after getting comfy my other side of the nose gets stuffed.

Sleeping position: On my back, or on my side, one leg over the other. One arm near my head, and the other wrapped around the stuffed-toy cheetah. This is the reason that in the mornings I can't find the tv remote, I kicked on the floor.

Ummm I don't have any Pj's (Hate them) so I sleep with any pants I have on during the day on lol even my School pants, and no shirts or singlets (Hate them). I sometimes sleep with music in my ear and always with bed covers on. Also used to sleep always on my right side but I'm finding my left side pretty easier as well. Umm yeah it probaly takes me like 1 hour looking around my room before I fall asleep lmao.

I sleep on my side with my legs bent and a pillow between my boney knees and one under my head. Can't sleep any other way. Sometimes I wear a shirt when it's cold, but usually I overheat so I keep a window open a crack and that makes things fairly comfortable. I also don't like the top sheet because of the same overheating problem so it's often just the duvet or a blanket for me.

I sleep on my right side, wearing sweatpants, a T-shirt, and socks, and cover up unless it's really hot. For some reason I cannot get to sleep easily unless I'm covered up. I'll also need to have some bit of light and music playing (my laptop works well for both). My head must be elevated by at least two pillows.

Even then I find actually falling asleep to be difficult unless my body is ready (or unless I down my allergy medication which doubles as sleeping pills).

I sleep on my right side, in a sort-of sharp P shape. I sleep in boxers all the time, usually with socks on also and quite rarely a t-shirt on too. My right arm holds the knee and my left arm is by my side.

When I had a painful side in my chest/rib area, this position was impossible to sleep in, so I slept sorta sideways but on my back with my head tilted to the right, and both arms down my side.

Also, I have to sleep with the duvet on me, even if it is hot, because I have to feel the weight of the duvet on me before I can sleep.

August 21st, 2012, 8:43 PM
I start off the night falling to sleep either on my sides or my stomach. When I wake up, I'll be on my back or my sides again. No idea why I rotate to my back in my sleep...

I can't go to sleep without a quilt over me. This is a pain in the ass in the summer, because my room gets pretty hot. As for PJs, I always wear pajama pants or shorts, and typically sleep without a shirt. I only wear it if it's too cold for just my blankets.

During the winter, I usually sleep with two quilts, plus a heated blanket. My room gets super cold at night. Heated blankets are amazing.

I usually sleep submerged under covers in boxers and shirt. I sleep on my right shoulder in general. On a hot day, I'll sleep in my boxers only.

Well... one reply in and already someone sleeps the exact same way that I do. I usually wake up on the same side I fell asleep, but if I don't, it'll be my left side (not once can I remember waking up on my stomach or back).

It depends, but normally I am warm so I will be wearing... not much...
But I like the blankets loose normally, unless I am feeling cold.

Depending on how hot or cold it is I'll wear anything for just boxers to shorts and a tshirt. I usually fall asleep on my side, it can be either one depending on if my shoulder hurts or not from sleeping on that side too much, but I tend to wake up on my stomach or back or on the floor or the foot of the bed or something weird.
I always have to have something on top of me be it a quilt or a blanket or whatever so that the monsters don't get me.

I sleep wearing only boxers, all year round. I can't get comfortable wearing anything else anymore, even though I used to just fine as a kid. I always sleep on my right side, or very rarely on my back. Whichever way I sleep though, my legs cannot be straight.

I've been told on numerous occasions that I sleep like a corpse. By that, I sleep under the covers on my back, with my arms over the covers and by my sides. On top of this, I don't move at all for the entirety of my sleep. It's legitimately freaked numerous people out how still I am when I sleep, as it does look like I'm dead to the unknown watcher. In terms of bedroom attire, it's just boxers. Nothing else, no matter the weather. And the duvet has to be really thin... can't be too hot in bed. Even if it's the deadest of winter, I won't upgrade to a thicker mattress for fear of being all hot in bed.

In countless sleepovers and such, I have fallen asleep and took up most of the bed, pretty much pushing whoever I have to share with to the wall. This is what happens when a teenager is given a double bed XD
I usually sleep in a t-shirt and my tracksuit bottoms or my shorts (depending how hot it is).
I also sleep with one leg out of the duvet and one leg in XD It's rather funny in a way :')

August 31st, 2012, 8:37 PM
Most of the time I sleep in a big t-shirt and undies. Nights are mostly hot so I don't use a blanket unless it's a cold winter night. I like sleeping on my right side and against a wall. I have a fear of falling off my bed in my sleep. (It has happened a few times.)

September 1st, 2012, 6:51 AM
I sleep on my sides most of the time, with one arm under my pillow and one arm close to my chest, and legs bent together. I can sleep on either side, but I seem to prefer my left side. I used to sleep on my stomach, but then I switched to my sides, but lately my stomach has been more comfortable again and it's easier to fall asleep.

I always sleep in whatever I wore that day, which is always comfort clothes (a t-shirt and comfortable pants) so there's pretty much no distinction between my day-clothes and night-clothes. I've also slept naked a few times, I wish i could do it more often, but I live at home and sometimes my mom has to get laundry and whatever so I just don't.

September 1st, 2012, 7:51 PM
I wear pj bottoms and whatever shirt I was wearing that day. I sleep under the covers, on my right side.

September 1st, 2012, 7:51 PM
> take off pants
> yay i'm ready for bed

I usually like it pretty cold when I sleep, and that's really the only thing I require lol. Noise and light don't really affect me, which is great for college ^^;

September 1st, 2012, 9:42 PM
I usually sleep on my left side with my arm under my pillow or on my belly.

I wear a t-shirt (usually the one I wore that day) and sweatpants or shorts depending on the weather. I feel like I have to cover up even if it's summer. I just like being under a blanket when sleeping because I'm use to it. During the summer I'll use a thinner blanket so I don't get extremely hot and in the winter a thicker blanket.

I sleep on my right side and I have my air condition at 10°c and I have fan on, unless its -20°c or higher outside (Weather can go up to -45°c during winter which means school closed :D) I just can't sleep if it's warm. During winters i have my heater on at around 15°c and I leave my window open because I live in a good neighbourood so I'm not concerned about getting robbed LOL. I wear pj's and the shirt I was wearing that day and I sleep under a blanket. I only sleep on a soft mattress, my parents got me a hard mattress and I hated it, I slept more but I woke up exhausted each day. I don't know why that was though.

September 2nd, 2012, 3:15 AM
I basically sleep on my side and I make sure my window is closed.

Also, what I wear depends on the weather.
