I am just being curious on how do you categorize yourself?Are you a good sleeper or you easily get awake when you hear a noise or someone wake you up?With me, most of the time I easily get awake even if it just a little noise or just a ring of a cellphone.But there are some instances, especially when I am really tired the whole day, even my Mom spunk me, I can easily get awaken. So I am not prone to any fire accidents. I can easily ran. What about you, are you a good sleeper? Share your opinion.happy mylotting!!

I would have to say I am a light sleeper. Anything wakes me up. I don't think I ever had a deep sleep. The only time I think I slept for a couple of days and did not wake up is when I got my wisdom tooth pulled and took some medication for it. I have a habbit, I cannot sleep after six in the morning. When there light outside I am up. I think I do better than some countries. In other countries they are up by four am. I also cannot go to sleep if there is light in the room. It has to be dark. Happy lotting.

I'm deep sleeper but sometimes I'm also light sleeper it depends how tired I am. If I'm very exhausted my sleep is very light but if I'm only tired my sleep is very deep. Sometimes even if the scratch of the cat I easily gets awake. I'm also prefer to sleep when the lights off and I'm early riser even if I want to sleep I can't force myself to sleep again.

My wisdom tooth did not let me sleep as well.When I experienced that, I really cried.My really do not know what to do.It is actually really painful. We are the same,I also have light sleep. I have a friend, it is really hard to wake him up.You have to shout on his ear so that he will be wake up. happy mylotting!

It was so sad that you can't sleep very well because you are focusing with your studies. But in that case,you don't have to take it seriously.You should have a time for yourself to take a rest. All the things that you are studying will not come into your mind if you were not able to sleep well. Have time to yourself.In studying, just a simple tip, just get the main point of the topic and do not get all the information.happy mylotting!!

My work and bills sometimes keep me awake at night too. Sometimes I can't stop thinking about all the things I have to do so I can't sleep. I usually end up getting out of bed to work on those things.

I'm a very deep sleepe, in fact i sleep so deep that a somebody could be on top of me and i won't even know it or feel them. But as deep as i sleep, i don't sleep for very long. In fact my average hours of sleep is 5 or 6 hours, i think last night i went to be around 12 or 1 after watching a movie and i woke up beteen 5 and 6 am this morning.

Oh no!!In that case, anybody can rape you because you don't feel that someone is on top of you?I can only have a heavy sleep when i am really tired, there are some instances that i really want to log in to mylot but my eyes and body doesn't want to do it anymore. If I am tired, it took me around 10 - 12 hours to sleep, when I am not tired, around 6 7 hours.But I am not a heavy sleeper just like you.happy mylotting!!

You know we are really friend,you know why?We have a lot of similarities.Let me identify it one by one. The first similarity that we have is we are both addicted to mylot. We are the members of the site who almost do not want to sleep just to barge in in every discussions in the site. Secondly, we both love barging in.I am so glad because you are very supportive in all the discussions that I have made here.I know there are still a lot, I just can't say it as of this moment. Can you still add with our similarities?happy mylotting!!

When i was young i was a good sleeper. I could sleep the whole morning or the whole afternoon. But now i'm so busy and find that i have no time for enough sleep at all because i have to take care of my baby . I really miss those days and miss the times when i spent with my parents.

Yes, it is really true. When we are still young, we always love to sleep.I can still remember when I was still a kid,I really love sleeping in the afternoon since according to my grandmother, I will grow fast if I will sleep in the afternoon, but nothing happens because until now, I'm still very small. But that's okay.Honestly, it was able to help me. Now, I have no so much time to take a sleep especially I am having part time online. I can only sleep 3 - 5 hours in a day. happy mylotting!!

I would consider myself a pretty good sleeper. I'm able to sleep through the night. I always wake up to alarming sounds though. Every little noise won't wake me, but if it's a phone ringing or baby crying it certainly will. I can even nap during the day and still be able to sleep at night.

there were different stages for me. up until highschool, i was really a deep sleeper. i could sleep in the middle of a loud party and still have a restful sleep afterwards. i could sleep thru noise... loud and whatsoever but i get easily awaken when someone cals my name. hehehe while in the university, i became a light sleeper. perhaps because i started developing a body clock until i had my work. my body clock is 6 hours. no matter what time i sleep, i'll always wake up after 6 hours, unless i have an alarm clock set earlier. the problem with alarm clocks however is that i wake up 5-30 minutes before it was suppose to ring. so i actually get less sleep because of that. i think as people age, we get to be light sleepers. now, i often wake up when the sun kissed my face thru the bedroom window, when my mobile phone rings or received a text message, when a baby cries from a neighbor's house, when the roosters begun their irritating sounds in the morning, when the pigeons decided to peck thru the glass windows in the bedroom, when the santol tree (i don't know what it's called in english -hehe) voluntarily drops its ripe fruits to our roof or when the coconut leaves suddenly find itself slapping our second floor window when there's strong wind... this is what sleeping is like when i'm at home. but even so, i still get a good sleep even if i'm a light sleeper... and even with no pillows... unlike you with 3-5 pillows.

hahaha!!you still remember that?yes,it is really hard for me to sleep without at least 3 pillows with me.I also set an alarm clock but most of the time i adjust it because i still feel very sleepy. you are right, when we are still young we are really a deep sleeper but as times goes by, we became light sleeper,I agree with that.happy mylotting!!

I'm a rather light sleeper. Noises and other things wake me up at night. The only time I don't wake up is if I'm really tired. Then I sleep pretty soundly. I feel like those are the nights I get my best sleep sometimes.

Sometimes, I dream that i am always tired so that I can have a heavy and with a sleep pretty soundly. Just like you, i am easily awaken when I heard a noise while sleeping,it is really hard for me to sleep once I have already wake up. I think i have an insomnia.This kind of experience are only experience by people who has insomnia.Today, i became so very tired with my job. I think I will have a better sleep today.I will just stay for another two hours and after that I will also take a sleep already,happy mylotting!!

Yes I am a good sleeper. Just like you when I was sleeping I can wake up even with just one sound of a cellphone alarming. One dog bark, or one talk from a family member. I can easily wake up after one movement of someone beside me in bed. But if I was very tired, not even REgine Velasquez belting a higher notes can make me wake up. But my problem is when I needed to sleep early because I need to get up early that is the time its hard for me to give in to sleep. What will happen late sleeping again.

I sleep very well on the medication that I take right now. If i'm not taking any medication, then I can be a very light sleeper.

I would all depend on how tired I am. If I am not very tired then I would say I am a light sleeper but sometimes I am very tired and then I would say I am a good sleeper and sleep threw the night.

I am not that great of a sleeper. I have trouble getting to sleep at times and then there are times when I wake up in the middle of the night and not able to go back to sleep. I wake up to every little thing unless it is one of those rare night where I am tired and get to sleep through alot of things. My husband and my oldest daughter are heavy sleepers not much can wake them up. My youngest is more like me hopefully she doesn't have too many problems as she gets older.

Yes, i am a good sleeper. I get sound sleep and also wake up if there is any weird sound around but it doesn't mean i am not a good sleeper because I am healthy and fit so it means that I am good sleeper. Good sleep is essential for every human being. So,after dinner I walk for at least half an hour which gives me a sound`sleep after that everyday I do this and follow it through out the year.

For some reason I have a hard time getting comfortable, so it's not easy for me to get to sleep. I find I don't better taking cat naps. I usually wake up pretty easily.
