It's 3 a.m. and you should be sleeping. But you aren't. Maybe you're a night owl or maybe you have a crying baby. Whatever the reason, you're wide awake, probably counting the time until your alarm goes off. To help you get your crazy mind off things, Bored Panda has compiled a list of sleep memes and they're so relatable, it's hilarious. From peculiar ways we treat our bedding to the things we risk by hitting the snooze button, these images definitely could be featured in the sleep habits encyclopedia. Continue scrolling, enjoy, and upvote your faves!

If it makes your sleepless nights any easier, know that you aren't alone. According to CDC data, more than a third of American adults are not getting enough sleep on a regular basis. The American Academy of Sleep Medicine and the Sleep Research Society recommend that adults aged 18–60 years should get at least 7 hours of quality sleep each night to promote optimal health and well-being.

Sleeping less than 7 hours per day can lead to an increased risk of developing chronic conditions such as obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, and frequent mental distress.

"As a nation, we are not getting enough sleep," said Wayne Giles, M.D., director of CDC’s Division of Population Health. "Lifestyle changes such as going to bed at the same time each night; rising at the same time each morning; and turning off or removing televisions, computers, mobile devices from the bedroom can help people get the healthy sleep they need."

Yes sometimes I wake up an hour before my alarm and go to sleep and I kind of half sleep and feel suspicious about how long I'm able to do that because it feels much longer than an hour

And the more you think about it, the less likely it is that you'll be able to actually sleep

that only applies when you feel the urge to sleep cause your still tired. Not when lying awake for 2 whole damn hours cause you are way to energetic like i was last night. No fun...

the most frustrating about dreams to me is that no matter how crazy it was, it made absolute sense as I was seeing it. then as soon as I woke up, I would go "the heck what that about?"

And the more you try to be quiet the more the door and floor boards squeak and the more you end up dropping and clattering.
