Recently I got inspired about Sleep Awarnessby a company called Casper.

Casper is a company that sells mattresses which are shippable to your door in a conveniently sized box.
They also have a blog so you can check them out here.
I found it pretty fascinating since lately I've been really into finding the right app to track my sleeping cycle and habits.
I have found myself to have many sleepless nights and having a lot of energy like at 4 in the morning, which for me is the middle of the night. I have never felt so inspired and full of brain activity at that hour. I feel very refreshed and ready to start the day, although my body does give me a lot of signals that it hasn't had it's proper time to sleep and reboot.
Lindsay shared this graphic with me which portrays 6 types of sleepers:

It took me quite a long time to figure out how I see myself and after a long thinking process I think I have found myself in three categories/types.
I don't know about you, but have you ever wondered what if computers were made out of fluffy stuffed animal materials instead of all that metallic hardware. I know I sound weird, it just my imagination, because if that were the case I'd probably snuggle with it. So this thought has brought me and you to the conclusion that I am The iSleeper.
I'm definitely the person that sleeps with either the laptop being close or my smartphone. It has become an obsession. And I've developed the need to watch something before I go to sleep even if it's a really old low quality video on YouTube.
Now YouTube is a whole other story on it's own and I'll tell you it is by far the reason why I see myself in the next type - The Night Creature.
It doesn't matter if I have things to do in the morning or not, I'll make sure to stay up all night scrolling through my subscribtions and watching every video that I've missed.
Even if I get sleepy I always find some video that interests me enough to keep myself awake all night.
The problem with this is that it happens often, and if it isn't YouTube's fault, it's my freaking brain activity that suddenly has all these great ideas about my blog, about life, about university, about everything. I must say I can get very philosophical after a certain hour in the morning.
And on other nights when I do actually sleep - I'm sorry if I made you feel like I don't, I do use my bed for sleeping, don't worry - I love making my own cocoon. Now I know this, because most nights I wake up so tangled up in my sheets and blankets that it takes me quite some time to get out of bed.
And let me tell you I bet it's not the most graceful of looks.
I'm literally wrapped up like a chicken wrap and maybe even more than that. So that's why this makes me also The Bed Hogger.
There is probably many more types I could be mentioning, but these three really stood up. I must say they have been very eye opening for me.
I am really glad I found out about National Sleep Awarness month, because it made me think of the things I might have been neglecting. And crucial things like sleep. So much I didn't sleep because it got me inspired to think about my habits and why I am the way I am.
I hope that you have enjoyed this post.
It's a bit different coming from me but, I enjoyed writing it.
And well my question for you is what are your sleeping habits?
Which type are you?
Let me know in the comments!
Thank you for reading and have a nice day,
