Hello friends!!! Well since few days I have adopted the habit of sleeping very late i.e at about 2:30 a.m. My exam days are going on, and I get good concentration of mind at the night time than the day time. When studying whenever I get bored, I log on to mylot and use it for a while and again continue with my study. Mylot helps me remove the fatigue of study. Its already more than one week that I have been doing this. And now I feel it completely normal. I don't really feel asleep. But I wake up at 8 in the morning. Well do you sleep late, too late? What time is too late for you? Happy mylotting...Have a nice time...

No, I am always awake my 8 am. Some people may say that is late, or too late. Usually awake before then, but always by then.

If we spend time thinking about what other people say we never get anything done. Let them think whatever they want

Yes some people may say that. My mother would say me, why are you late waking up? I simply way, I am late in sleeping? But I think it is necessary to maintain the hours we sleep than sleeping late or early. Yes mysdainait, I agree with you. If we keep on minding what others say, they we can never reach where we want. Thanks for your response.... happy mylotting...

hihi...same as you, i sleep extremely late, sometimes even 3 or 4 am... actually recently i have been sleeping so late because i was unable to sleep as my mind was too occupied with alot of things..everytime i lie on the bed, alot of things will come to my mind and i will keep thinking about it, and usually i will end up crying..cry until i am tired then i will fall asleep...by then it will be most likely be already 3 or 4 am... this cause me to be extremely tired in the day..sometimes i am watching tv, at work, in the bus or train, i will fall asleep... last year, when i was schooling...i also sleep quite late, around 1 or 2..during examination maybe up till 3 am..i know it is no good to sleep so late, but at night is the best time to study..

Hello flowerday!!! It seems that you think too much and also worry too much with it. I too had the same problem like you few years ago. Sleeping was too much difficult for me, specially when I had some emotional problems. I try to sleep, turn this side and that side but instead star sweating and cannot sleep at all. Like you there are also times, when I couldn't sleep till 4 am in the morning, only when my other family members are awake, I get a little sleep. But now, I don't have that problem. That time mostly to get sleep, I kept earphones over my ear and with the music, I tried to sleep. I think you should also give it a try, it really helps. You won't know when you are asleep. For somedays, the music became compulsory for my sleeping. But now, I don't have those problems, and not really big mental tensions, that's why I don't have that problem. Can't sleep is another thing, and staying awake late is another thing. My examinations are going on and that's why I have developed this habit. As soon as the exam finish, I come back to the usual schedule again. I have gone at most 4am studying in the exam without sleeping for a while and it was just a month ago. Yes it is not really good to sleep so late, I get some headache for the day time for a while. But it gets cured soon.... Thanks for sharing your story flowerday, have a nice time posting...

with my lifestyle i never get to sleep too late. i have a dog that needs to be walked and a young child i have to get off to school and i babysit all day from 9-5. so if i want to get anything at all done before the baby comes i have to get up really early so i can get a good head start on my chores. on the weekend the dog still has to be walked but then i go back and lay down a bit and get started a bit later than during the week. i pace myself slower on the weekends as i have less of a schedule to keep to which to me is a real gift.

Hello mikeysmom!!! Well yes, the sleeping schedule depends very much on the day work. And nowadays, I am home for the whole day preparing for the exam and I don't need to anywhere else except it. That's why I can stay late night and also I sleep sometimes at the day time when I get really bored. This also helps me to remove the tiredness...I will soon have to change the schedule after the exam finished, and the normal college days resumes again. And then it would not be possible for me to stay awake late night like you and if I did, I wont be able to open my eyes in the classroom in the morning.... Thanks for sharing your story...Good luck mylotting...

I always sleep very late ,at around 2 or 3 a.m., before examinations at the end of term. One reason is that I am too lazy and dont care much about my study until the end of term when I have to deal with my examinations. Catching up so many courses in a few weeks is a tough job, which means i have to study for most of the day. Besides, my roommates is used to sleep very late and they are especially noisy near the end of term. Sleeping too late is unhealthy, so I try to study harder now ,hoping that I wont be so busy at the end of this term

Hello Hedwig!!! Well I am pretty much like you. And I have seen most of the students like you and me. Before the start of the session I say to myself that I will be studying hard from the very beginning of the session. And for few days, I will get that excitment, but gain get the regular trend of laziness as the time passes until the exam comes. And in the exam, I work hard, infact, start about two weeks before exam hehe... And nowadays, I am having the exam. I am not really studying under pressure. Look at me mylotting hehe..Though I sleep late, I partly give time for mylotting to get refreshed. Also due to the preboard, I am getting too much comfortable with my study nowadays, and sittting till 2 am, and currently its 1:30 already, just to make sure I can improve a bit more... Thanks for your response Hedwig...Have a nice time.

Hehe!!! funny man, how are you? Right now its 2:20 pm here and I am having a little headache of sleeping late yesterday night and again waking up early today morning. I am back after the examination. You seem to stay too late. I hope you are already used to with. Yes like you, I also have the same habit. Mostly due to computer, I have been able to keep awake myself. That's why during the exam too, to escape from sleepiness I take the support of my computer. Also if I don't have exam, I would hang in computer too much. And it becomes mostly late and I don't realize it until I see the time at the the right corner below. But I have not experienced like you, Like you said, it was almost morning hehe. My highest record is going till 4 a.m. Enjoy your holiday mysdianait. Yeah I see many people like you, sleeping till 11 in the morning, oops almost till afternoon.... Happy mylotting funny man

As you know, habit is the second nature, if you make it a habit surely you would adapt to it. When I was still a college goer I used to study till late night and would go the bed after 3. Even today i do not sleep early. i am there till 2 at night. I do the make up as I sleep one hour or so at day time after my lunch.

Hello krajibg!!! Yes, whatever w do regularly that turn to be our habit and we get used to it. Going to bed only after 3. Was it everynight, well sometimes I also do the same. If I do that when I have the regular classes, I won't be able to see my teacher in the class. Hmm, like you if I get chance, I too get a sleep at the day time for about one or two hours, especially listening music. I get good sleep at the day time. I hope you are really habituated with staying awake till 2 am now. And when do you wake up. Now I will get surprised if you say, you wake up before 6 A.M, or do you? Thanks for your response...Keep mylotting...Good luck

haha, it's good to be young, if I go to bed at 2.30 am, I will not be able to wake up before noon. I try to sleep before 11 pm, but that is not always possible. When I was working in a company that had very early starting hours, I slept at 10 am and woke up at 5:30 am. The company transport arrived punctually at 6:30 am. I am not a morning person, find it so hard to concentrate on work so early in the morning.

Hello Scheng1!!! Nice to get you in this thread. Well sleeping is just a habit. We feel too sleepy at the regular time we sleep. But if we cross the time of our regular sleep, then after than we won't get sleepy at all, unless we lie on bed. And if we continue this for few days then our regular sleeping time changes. So only for the exams I have adopted this habit. Night time is the real time to study for me, I can concentrate more at this time. But its not possible for me to do that when we have regular classes. I will not be able to open my eyes in the class room. My class starts at 7:00 am and if I don't sleep till 2 then it will be very bad. But sometimes, I don't realize the passing of time and so even though I have the class in the morning, I may wake upto 2, not matter, I have to hardly open my eyes to see the teacher . hehe! yeah sleeping till noon that may happen. I would have also done that if I am really free, but my mum would shout and shout and ask me to have the breakfast until I do it. So I have never sleep more than 9 am in the morning. So have you changed your job now? Or still you have to wake up early in the morning. I don't really like to wake up early though I can stay late. It I am slept, then I am slept hehe... Thanks for the response...Have a nice time

As of me I sleep too late much too late... I usually sleep at 3am and rise at 6am, no matter what time I sleep it is always at 6am that I wake, that's how my body clock works... In fact there is an instant that I did not sleep at all, cause am reading on mangas and when I check my clock it's already past 6am, and I'm not sleepy at all.

Hello shadowkill!!! You seem to be very much resistive towards sleeping. I wish to be able to be like you. I am finding the time in a day, really shorter. Sleeping less definitely helps us to do much of the things get done. Don't you get any health problems? People say you must sleep at least for 6 hours to rest the body well. Or you are so much habituated that it does not really affect you . In my case, I may have slight headache next day if I do so. And what is mangas, that keep you so interested and made you forget to sleep. That must be really interesting stuff.... Thanks for your response...happy mylotting...

hi nzalheart, i normally goto sleep around only 2.because its the right time to do some mylotting,i find it hard to do mylotting in the morning,so i do it at night.and during exam times please don't stay awake till late at night,you will feel sleepy during the exam.instead if you get up early like say 5 o clock in the morning you can concentrate really well and what you read at that time will stay in your memory for a really looooooooooooooooong time.

Well vnrsudhan, I have this habit since very long time. And it is very difficult for me to wake up when I have already slept. After I have slept I become too lazy and when I wake up though I didn't wanted to, then it causes me big headache, and I won't know when I sleep again. So I keep waking up late, so than when I sleep I can sleep comfortably and don't have to bother too much to wake up faster. Don't worry, I am always sincere in the exams, I never get sleepy in the exams and even I never get the problem of short toilet during exam hehe...Till today in the exam I never got this problem, because when in exam i find myself totally concentrated on the writng...Your suggestion is nice and thank you very much, but I am comfortable with this technique I am following... Thanks for participating in my discussions...happy mylotting...

Hey my nzalheart my exams are goingon too. But i never sleep late.Instead i sleep early at around 7 in evening and then wake up at 2 in the morning. This really works as i can never stay awake otherwise and its really quite in the morning so the study is much more productive

Hello siddharthajeevan, First of all, good luck for your exams. By now, my exam is already finished and now I feel relaxed. But those days, still made my habit of sleeping late, so that I can easily wake up late till 2 A.M nowadays. Oh, when I sleep you wake up lol..Just opposite like you I can't sleep at 7 P.M, it would be very very difficult for me. Even though I try to sleep at 7 P.M, I think I may be turning one this direction and that direction until it is minimum 10 P.M, I mean it would be very difficult for me. And waking 2 A.M for study is not the bad idea. At 2 AM, I hope you get the really peaceful environment for reading isn't it. I used to hear from a friend, that she sleep the whole day and wake up whole night during the exams, because she said, she could read nicely and peacefully in the night time... Once again, good luck for your exams... And happy mylotting...
31 May 09
like you i also have started to go bed late. Me too busy mylotting. since i got internet connection i've been sleeping at 11:30pm else i would have slept at 9:00. i always sleep late and always late to my yoga class. i keep alarm on but i just turn it off when the alarm goes on, never knowing when i did that.I keep on sleeping saying to myself just 5 more minute...5 more minute and i am always sleeping late in the morning.

Hello bro!!! happy to get you in the discussion... So you are enjoying the mylot with your new internet connection. I hope along with enjoying you will earn many new things here and also earn some real money...Good luck... Well now my exam is finished you know. But I meditate for about half an hour daily. I have various guiding tracks downloaded, they really keep my mind cool. But today as light went out just before I already meditated. And I think most of the time, I will spending on the internet now. I didn't know you were still going to Yoga. That is nice. Keep on, don't be lazy. I have the worst story of stroking the alarm. In fact, my sleep can really digest the irritating alarms sound nowadays and won't even know that the alarm in ringing. And then in the morning, I would be thinking, when did I turned off the alarm??? Keep mylotting...

Haha weird, but when I want to wake up early the next day I'll sleep late because when I sleep late the tendency is that I'll wake up early. But if I slept early I will wake up late because it's nice to curl up in bed ;) But most of the time I keep my sleeping hours to normal because I have an acute sinusitis and the doctor says it will be bad for my nose.

hehe...That is really weird. Never heard of anyone doing that before...I really smiled a little when I read your response...If you have the problem, better you take precaution. Nowadays, I feel headache in the morning, may be due to late sleeping habit, I think I should take the precaution too... Thanks for your response...Happy mylotting...

Hello cieldz!!! First of all sorry I didn't didn't check this thread for long time... Seven days, without sleeping properly??? How did you do it? Now with your response, I think I don't have doubt that you are a Archtect Student. Aren't you. I have a friend, who studies Architect. He keeps complaining me that he didn't sleep till so late and even sometime say that he hasn't sleep at all. And he even tell the story of other architects who like you didn't sleep for about 7 days hehe...I knew from him that the Architect require really a hard work and I hope you are going on well at it... I think many architect students have developed the habit of being able to not sleep at all... Good luck... And happy mylotting...

Hello mnk202, I hope you are enjoying the mylot discussions... Hey why do you sleep late when you don't like it. I am doing this, because I enjoy it. Do you have the sleep problem. I sometimes have this problem and mentioned in the post about you... Well you should set your time to wake up depending upon the job you have to do the next day. Though I stay late, I set the plans for the next day previously... Thanks for responding in this thread....Happy posting....

Hi, in my mind ,sleeping too late is unhealthy !As we know,our body own its work and sleep rulers .If we break them ,they will be “unhappy"!And then you may be ill!!So,i suggest you to sleep early.I think we should sleep before 11:00 pm.

Hello qyjjia!!! First of all, welcome to the mylot forums, I hope you will enjoy a lot here... Well I have a question to you? Does it really matter the case of sleeping late, if we wake up late in the morning them. I mean, if we sleep at 11 am, we wake up at 6 am or earlier, i.e seven hours. And now due to my examinations, I am sleep at 2 am and waking at 8 am or little bit late. Well it makes, six hours sleep. Just because my concentration is strong at the late night. If I get tired at the day time, I may sleep for about an hour at the day time too. Does it really matter, if we are sleeping for the enough time, rather than which time? Thanks for your response and good luck

Hello priyankajudiya!!! Yeah I know about kumbhakarna. I am from Nepal and the story of Ramayana is very much popular here too and consider the Ram as the god. I also use this word for many friends specially when they are sleeping and I have also been called by this name sometimes hehe.... Waking up at 8 am is fine if you sleep at 1:30. Don't you think so. I mostly concentrate on the number of hours we got to sleep than to sleep early or late. But during the college days, I have to sleep earlier than this, else I wont be able to reach the college at 7 am.... Thanks for you response and happy mylotting...Good luck

I usually sleep late, till one o'clock in the morning or even later. But recently, I sleep a little earlier than that because I feel tired these days. I don't watch movies recently which is quite abnormal for me, and this also helps me to sleep early.

Hello magic9!!! If you are really tired, its better to sleep early. We should take care of our health too. I don't watch movie a lot and I am just opposite to you lol...Well for you the absence of movie lets to easier to sleep but for me the presence of movie will help me to sleep earlier. I have done that few times, and some of the movies made be too much sleepy that I couldn't open my eyes even though I forced. Once it happened, that I was watching movie, and I couldn't understand I was asleep, I was already dreaming about that movie, when I woke up, it was already at the last parts of the movie. Really got mixed up with the movie and the dream hehe... Thanks for your response. And welcome to the mylot discussions. I hope you will enjoy a lot here....Happy mylotting...
