Insomnia can be your best friend and your worst enemy. At times it will keep you awake with your mind churning unproductively. At other times you get to complete all those things you’ve been avoiding doing. If you can’t sleep and you need something to do, you might want to take a look at some of the suggestions below because now is the perfect time to get some of these tasks done! Some are fun and some are serious. Did you have something better to do?
Eat. That’s right. Go ahead and eat. I mean, you shouldn’t eat before bed, but since you aren’t going there any time soon you can justify to the diet police that this time didn’t count!
Pick your nose. You know you want to just because nobody is around to tell you not to!
Fold that laundry. I know you’ve been waiting for the laundry fairy to come fold it for you, but if you do it now, you can wake up in the morning and pretend that the fairy actually came.
Curse sheep. Well, they haven’t helped so far. May as well blame them.
Pick a fight. Wake your significant other up and pick a fight. Then you can have make-up whoopie and we all know that helps you get to sleep!
Crank the heat up. You’ll be so exhausted by the heat that you won’t be able to do anything but sleep.
Play with your kids’ toys. You know the only reason you don’t do it when they are awake is because you don’t want to share with them.
Call someone. Yes, it’s late. So, just pretend like you actually feel bad about waking them up. They’ll be so shocked that you called that late, they won’t be able to not talk on the phone. And, even if they do hang up at least you have the gratification of knowing that at least one other person is having to try to get to sleep.
Play every Facebook game you can find. You’re going to be here a while. Besides, trying to get rid of all the viruses you got from the games will give you something to do tomorrow night when you can’t sleep.
Irritate the neighbors. Make sure if you live in an apartment that when you go in and out your door to visit the neighbors 2 doors down that you slam the door. Or maybe that’s just what my neighbors do?
Do your homework. Nothing will put you to sleep faster than studying some absolutely boring subject that you have no interest in.
Hold a seance. Hey, why not check to see who or what else is awake at this hour?
Write. Write articles that have absolutely no function other than to entertain you while you think about what you could be doing that’s actually productive.
