It's 3 a.m., and you should be well in a deep sleep. But you aren't. Maybe you're a night owl, or perhaps 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 and finally fall asleep, Bored Panda has compiled a list of sleep memes, and they're so relatable, it's hilarious. From peculiar sleeping positions and bedding choices 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 favorite funny memes!

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 of good 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 sleep hygiene they need."
