Sleep is important for our general well-being. Not getting enough sleep puts you at risk of serious health issues, impaired performance on activities that are attention intensive, and increased distractibility. Sleep deprivation can also cause a decline in memory and lower productivity at work.
However, although sleep is vital, it doesn’t mean that you can doze off anywhere and any way you like. You should also consider your comfort and safety as well as what others might think about you.
Here is a collection of photos that show people sleeping in the most awkward and unsafe positions and places.
We all know that going to school isn’t easy. At times, you may need to spend long hours to study for exams. You may even lose sleep because of it. Despite the pressure of school, this student has everything under control and he’s doing a really good but awkward job.
As a student, you need to take advantage of every free time you get. Take this girl as an example. She managed to squeeze in a nap at uni.
This is what happens when you sleep on the train. Before you know it, you’re already on the floor.
When your parents were warning you about going home drunk, they’re probably worried you might end up like this woman. She had so much alcohol that she tried to enter her house through the cat door and slept halfway through.
When you’re sleeping over a friend’s house, you need to be respectful of everyone in his home. This guy was kind enough to sleep on the floor so that the homeowner’s cat can sleep on the couch.
This guy looks like he’s about to break his neck soon. It hurts just to look at.
This man has some serious skills when it comes to finding a good sleeping position at work. You’ll never find him unless you look under the table.
This woman takes a nap like she’s posing for a magazine. It’s also possible that she thinks she’s a cat.
Putting a magazine on your face while you sleep is good for two reasons. One, it will protect your eyes from the sunlight and two, it’ll scare anyone who tries to wake you up.
Even though you go to work with someone and you spend several hours with him at work, it doesn’t mean that you know everything about him. Imagine this person’s surprise when he found out his co-worker sleeps with his eyes open. Honestly, it’s quite creepy.
This man kept asking his wife why she doesn’t want to sleep next to him. This photo should be enough to explain everything.
What do you do when you want to sleep at the airport but there are armrests in between chairs? You use one of your bags to balance yourself between two chairs. See the photo to see how it’s done.
This man is bound to wake up with a dead arm with pins and needles. I’m pretty sure he won’t wake up as fabulous as the way he’s sleeping.
This guy has the most dangerous sleeping position of them all. It looks like he’s going to lose his head if he wakes up the wrong way.
If anyone can get this man two tiny wings and a bow, he’d certainly pass as a love cupid. He could pass as a ballerina, too.
Good thing this person sleeps alone. With her arms and legs positioned like the Swastika sign, it’ll be hard for another person to fit in.
It’s generally hard to sleep with the sun shining bright on your eyes. This man has a solution for that.
Who would have thought that those large boxes make an awesome spot to sleep in? Just look at how comfortable that man is. He’s probably sleeping there for hours already.
How can anyone sleep with one leg above her head? More importantly, where is her other leg? It’s hard to believe she’s human at all.
To anyone who’s worried about this grandma. she’s completely fine. The book she’s reading suggests that.
There’s nothing wrong with letting kids start working on their flexibility at a young age. I’m not sure if this sleeping position is a part of this kid’s training for that.
This guy looks like he’s about to transform into a really beautiful butterfly. That cat, on the other hand, is just acting like most cats. It clearly doesn’t care how weird its human looks.
This woman has just started reading that book and it seems to be working quite well. She fell asleep even before she got home to her bed.
You really can’t do anything once the need to sleep kicks in. You just have to be prepared to find a nice and comfortable spot to sleep in. Take it from the nap master and his bass case.
This kid thought that putting that sticker on her grandma’s eyes was a great idea. I think it’s awesome.
This is one good reason why you should never sleep around your friends. Although they have your back, they’re likely to make fun of you first.
Considering the cost of tours like this, it’s safe to say that this is one expensive nap. I hope they got a really nice sleep throughout the boat ride.
This guy is so lucky to have such co-workers. They are completely behind him in everything he does, including sleeping.
They say cows are just like big dogs. Well, this photo makes it hard to argue with that.
This is both weird and adorable. Despite the big space available, these 4 chose to sleep close together.
This man wasn’t just sleeping in an awkward position, but it’s quite dangerous, too. Even robbers will feel nervous to see him sleep that way.
I don’t know if it’s his nose or his hand that’s keeping him from falling off of his seat. Based on how his head is leading into that metal tube, I’m going to bet that it’s his nose.
It’s hard to say if this person is a genius or he’s just being rude. That seat was designed that way to prevent people from sleeping on it and yet, he still used it as a bed.
After coming home drunk, she got a little bit hungry. When her boyfriend came back, he found her sleeping with chips on her mouth.
When you’re trying to sleep, you need to find a position you’re comfortable sleeping in. For this man, it’s kneeling towards his seat.
The person who took this photo is a teacher. During exam week, one of his students pulled out a pillow from his backpack. Did he get mad? Well, no. He was actually impressed.
She said she was comfortable sleeping in that position. Her boyfriend’s not buying it and neither do I.
I actually feel jealous of this woman. I mean, not every person can sleep anywhere like that.
This man has an interesting way of sleeping. He looks like he’s thinking hard but in reality, he’s already dozing off.
Never ask your partner to take more candid shots of you. This is what you might end up with.
