Sleeping is my best coping mechanism. I do not like to entertain my problems which need immediate solutions. I tend to sleep. When I am awake everyting seems to become more complicated. In sleeping I have noticed that I could find some solace and possible ways to entertain positively my problems in life. You may find it strange but it helps me a lot in different but unique means of dealing my hardships and challenges in a day to day's demands. Try it for yourself and share what you may find.

well men are different from women. whenever i have a problem or something would bother me, my laptop is my way of getting rid of my thoughts. couldn't sleep when something's not okay, a drink or so could help too. need to feel exhausted and drained so i could fall asleep.

I know the importance of sleeping for the good functioning of my body and mind,so I always try to have enough sleep to allow me to feel better the next day and deal with the hardships of life with a clear mind.I think people who don't get enough sleep are much more anxious and stressed than others,and their health is certainly affected by the lack of sleep.

Hi Boboy! Actually I consider sleeping as one of my hobbies. I sleep whenever there is chance to sleep. This made me ask myself before why I always wanted to sleep. Then I sought for some information from the internet and I found out that there are people who uses their energy in just a short period of time. Those persons usually get tired fast and I consider myself one. Sometimes we need to refresh our minds from worries because there are times that it's difficult to think anymore as our mind is cluttered with so many things. Then every time I wake up I feel renewed again and can think clearly again. Have a nice day!

Actually sleeping is the excercise to get relief from all mental tensions. so im always sleeps for minimum 8 hours a day. it keeps my thinking stable and i will feel refresh when i woke up.

Hi boboy, This peculiar habit of yours is not strange for me. The same thing I too experience. If I am sad or tensed I would like to sleep and when I wake up I fell freshed, not things getting complicated and here we depart from each other. And I have a habit of sleeping for some time during day time provided I am free and I can not sleep in th evening I mean just before the twilight. If I sleep at that time I feel dizzy and uncomfortable. Mine is also strange ya?

I like sleeping because it's a true break from everything that's going on in my life. That's why I hate dreaming about homework, because it's like I never get a break! lol I also don't like sleeping without dreams because then I don't feel rested. I like having dreams that really take me away and make me ready to face the next day.

I share the same technique in coping. I've learned that there's no sense worrying over things at night, and I just sleep and face whatever issue I have the next morning. It is said that when we sleep, our brain does some kind of rewiring and so it helps us process about the things that transpired the whole day. I guess this explains the refreshed and better feeling that we experience after a good night's sleep. When we are stressed, our physiological functioning is affected. Sleep allows our muscles and tissues to repair and recover, so we cannot dismiss the importance of sleep.
