Do you sleep while watching movies?I wonder what causes this,at times, i thought it was because of the film itself, but later i learnt that the environment could be a factor as well and ofcourse,your state of mind and the body could be just asking for rest and get the best time while you are watching the movie.What do you think?

It was thesame problem when watching films,though i don't experience that anymore these days because i watch films only when i'm alive and in good mood.

Hi my friend, I have a terrible time sitting through a movie. I don't know whether I have a problem actually or not. Unless the movie is very, very interesting or very, very funny, I will nod off. I am one of those types of people that like to do more than one thing at once. I will have the TV on while I'm on MyLot. Or I'll be playing a game in one tab of my browser and reading my email in the other. Maybe I just get bored. Happy MyLotting! Char

May i ask you if you really get anything from the films when you do some other things while watching films?Concentrating could be far off,you know!Anyway,thanks and i wish you a nice day.

depending on the film itself, if the movie was called then I will not sleep and if boring then I'll feel tired and fall asleep. Of course it ever happened, but I deal with playing games.

You know that there are some films with action from the begining till the end of the film.Though, when it starts with action, and in the middle it gets dry,it won't carry most viewers along very well.Thanks for your reply.

I think that the time factor is also responsible for that at times.His state of mind as well is very important.Well,keep watching the good ones,compliments of the season to you!

Hello alpha. It once happened to both me and my girlfriend while watching David Attenborough's documentary episode called "Caves" and it was because of the very relaxing voice of the narrator and the overall tranquillity in the room and experience :)

I would only fall asleep if I'm already sleepy. I generally don't fall asleep while watching movies or TV shows either. The only time I do is at night & it's past my usual bedtime.

hello alpha! haha,,,you just remind me of my husband... 2 days ago, my husband & i watched a movie in a cinema, i know that he's someone who really likes watching movies, but to my surprised, i caught him sleeping in the middle of watching the movie! haha its maybe because he got bored with the movie coz its actually the second time we watch it, and also, i think he's really tired that time coz we watched the movie after his basketball game...and to think that we just finish our lunch that time! haha i think those things together with the nice environment, makes him fall asleep while watching the movie!
