14 Things Sleepy People Can Relate To
Business Insider

Some people like to sing, dance, eat–possibly all three–and some people even love to sleep. It’s not that we sleep-lovers never get enough hours of it or that we’re lazy. Our bodies just love sleeping too much! Letting our eyes and the rest of our body rest is one of our favorite things to do. Maybe you might not want to sleep most of the time, but even so, here are a few moments everyone who has ever been tired can relate to:

1. Closing your eyes and pretending to “think” when you’re actually sleeping.

2. Not understanding how others can get out of bed and function well with less than eight hours of sleep.

3. Being late to an event or class from oversleeping.

4. Scrolling through your phone in bed and having the phone fall on your face.

5. Turning down plans because you’d rather sleep instead.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F06%2F636166452585943404850789836_635720649116354719-808473499_i-need-my-beauty-sleep.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=63&h=de4c8b0ef08ef018e8cf6637cc2431369399ccbcd4d4791dca9724890c809eb5&size=980x&c=3903505398 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F06%252F636166452585943404850789836_635720649116354719-808473499_i-need-my-beauty-sleep.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D63%26h%3Dde4c8b0ef08ef018e8cf6637cc2431369399ccbcd4d4791dca9724890c809eb5%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3903505398%22%7D" expand=1]

6. If you’re both hungry and tired, you choose sleep over a meal.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F06%2F636166435784242596895003962_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=444&h=714dafbf120de66c58d9015b074337ce32eff6c358ca157954611cedbd2f257b&size=980x&c=940165532 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F06%252F636166435784242596895003962_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D444%26h%3D714dafbf120de66c58d9015b074337ce32eff6c358ca157954611cedbd2f257b%26size%3D980x%26c%3D940165532%22%7D" expand=1]

7. Because if you choose to eat when you're still tired, you end up falling asleep in the middle of eating.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F06%2F636166436108433857624464694_1317143911_little_girl_falling_asleep_while_eating.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=475&h=61e1e709dfd1c882bd2972de8eba046e8e363b669cc4cfadc43847910b9c274f&size=980x&c=391803167 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F06%252F636166436108433857624464694_1317143911_little_girl_falling_asleep_while_eating.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D475%26h%3D61e1e709dfd1c882bd2972de8eba046e8e363b669cc4cfadc43847910b9c274f%26size%3D980x%26c%3D391803167%22%7D" expand=1]

8. Being the victim in all the asleep-with-an-open-mouth photos.

9. Telling yourself you’d be better at your craft if you didn’t always take so many naps.

10. Looking forward to the end of the day so you can take a nap.

11. Always tending to fall asleep while watching a movie or TV.

12. While some people use exercise or hobbies to cope with emotions, you choose to sleep.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F06%2F636166437337876738-1505641657_tumblr_meoen8mpJ61ra1hcw.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=936&h=fd786bacd5f832b1af91f4eae77ac270354ba2ffce9de9c78ab9eb1097e9ea38&size=980x&c=3982041246 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F06%252F636166437337876738-1505641657_tumblr_meoen8mpJ61ra1hcw.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D936%26h%3Dfd786bacd5f832b1af91f4eae77ac270354ba2ffce9de9c78ab9eb1097e9ea38%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3982041246%22%7D" expand=1]

13. You are known to rarely reply back or answer any of your texts and calls because of being asleep.
