Hi All, Last night i fall asleep on sofa while watching a movie. early morning i was uncomfortable to turn on other side, so without going to my bedroom i sliped down on the carpet. I love my sleep. When i woke up my whole body was paining. So i took warm bath felt nice and ok. Have you felt the same? on sofa or travelling ? share your opinion.

I have slept on the sofa before, but never for very much to long. My fiance will awaken me if I fall asleep, and tell me that it's time to go to bed. Then as soon as I get in bed, I almost always instantly fall asleep. The couch isn't the most comfortable place, but we have a love seat in our living room that is very comfortable to sleep on. I cuddle up on it, and sometimes even with my fiance. Have a Great day.

Hi there yogeshdhusa! I have no trouble about sleeping and even if you will just ask me to sleep in a small bamboo chair, when I am sleepy I will just sleep....LOL!I always sleep in our couch many many times when we are watching movies or even just hanging out with friends and we are all full and feel sleepy, we will be sleeping in the couch! It's relaxing but once I can't straight my body, I will surely have the pain too!

I sleep on the sofa most of the time. It's mainly because I can't sleep in complete silence. So I have to drift off to sleep while the TV is on, and the TV is in the living room where the sofa is. Also, I find the sofa more comfortable to sleep with than my own bed. This habit started when I usually find myself drifting off to sleep easily while watching TV show. I can't sleep when I try to sleep.

All these times I always have a hard time sleeping. I never knew that it could be a good way to sleep. Maybe i'll try that one.

I have slept on our sofa numerous times and to think that my feet can't be accomodated by our sofa anymore, I still get to sleep alright on it. I guess its because I'm at home which makes it convenient in a way. When it comes to travel, it really depends on what I am going to sleep on. Perhaps if its really somewhere which is really uncomfortable, I'd surely have an aching body when I wake up which isn't a good thing since we need a good body's rest when starting a new day, especially when that day is demanding for work.

I have slept on my couch many times. For naps,Just because I fell asleep and even when I have had a disagreement with my wife. I like my sofa so it's not so bad but since I have a sleep by number bed I really prefer to do my sleeping there.

I did it last night and some other nights as well... I can't sleep and I don't want to wake my husband and children so if I get sleepy i just use the sofa...It never bothered me though.

I fell asleep while watching tv programs, especially movies so often.

We have a nice hard bed at home but there have been nights when we are watching a movie or something and we end up crashing on the sofa. However it is not a good one to sleep on and usually after I have slept on it I have a really bad back. I love sleeping on my bed too much after that. I think we need to take care of our backs too. It can be quite painful on the neck area if you sit in an uncomfortable position on the sofa too which I have done too many times too. I think we need to sometimes think smart.

I have slept on the couch many of times and yes I wake up with pain in my back. I would rather just crash in the bed and now when I know I'm tired and can't last no more and just can't fight it no more I make my self head for the bed and not on the couch. I have learned one to many times that the couch will get me and good with body pain that is.

Yes, sometimes I will sleep on sofa, but normally is when I take afternoon nap. Depends on what kind of sofa are you sleeping. If u slept on the short sofa, sure will cause pain on your body. You should sleep on the sofa which fit your whole body. Sometimes sleep on the sofa will quite comfort too. But I'm a girl, if I stay overnight at my friend's place, sure will look not nice.

Yes I do, most of the time I sit on sofa while watching and when I feel tired I choose to sleep there especially when it's in the afternoon having my siesta.

it was a very very long time ago since i slept on the sofa. but it wasnt quite big enough for my legs to fit on it. i definately prefer my bed to stretch out in. its no fun when you wake up alot of the time when you roll over and face the other direction

I usually sleep in my bed, but for some strange reason when I am by my friends apt and I sleep on the couch, I am more than comfortable. It bothers me too, because I get so comfortable that I cannot figure out why when I am at home I am not. It is not my couch, because I can lay on my couch and be comfortable, and watch tv and even fall asleep, but I always wind up getting up in the middle of the night and going into my bed, at their apt this never happens, I dont ever wake up during the night.

I sometimes will take naps on the sofa ,but that is all . The only way I wil is if I have to . I just never seem to be able to fall asleep or get comfy. The other night I had no choices because my fiances dang pug wet the bed . That was a long chore ! I had no choice but to sleep on the sofa for a few days . Now that was a pain and I was very restless.

I have fallen asleep on my couch, but it was always because I'm watching a movie and guess I just dose off, but now I actually do sleep on either our couch or sofa bed pull out, and it was comfortable at first but not so much now, and yes the back pain and sore neck pain, not good, but I went and got a one of those foam mattresses and put it on and it did help alot. so now I do get some kind of good sleep, but still have the neck pain. so trying to find a pillow that will help.

I have fallen asleep on the sofa a couple of times and it is actually quite comfortable,because I can sleep about anywhere,except the floor,and not once have I fallen asleep on the couch and ended up on the floor.
