Top Ten Things That Keep People Up In the Middle of the Night

The Top Ten Things That Keep People Up In the Middle of the Night

1 It might be too hot in the room

My room is the only bedroom in my house without an air-con. It's horrible during the summer, it gets very hot and I really don't like it. That's one of the reasons I'm not fond of summer. - ivylee

This usually happens to me. I usually don't want to get out of bed in the middle of the night, but sometimes I have to. - Minecraftcrazy530

Yeah. One of the main reasons I can never get to sleep in other people's houses. Thermostat controls. - IronSabbathPriest

Sometimes even with the fan on its still hot in my room. - cosmo

2 Noises

There's noises everywhere. So it could be hard to sleep. - nintendofan126

Yeah it hard to sleep with noises - trains45

That’s why earplugs exist. - Userguy44

3 Light

It can be hard to sleep with light, like if someone left my bright light on in my room I would have trouble sleepong - trains45

Yes, I can't sleep with light. My family doesn't have the same problem though, so when they walk through the house, they generally leave all the lights on. Normally, I have to get up and leave my warm bed to turn the light off, otherwise the light goes under my door. - IpodSwagger

Well...I can't sleep with any trace of light, I would need pitch black darkness to sleep with comfort - Ananya

I hope I'm not the only one who sleeps with light on. It's a habit and makes me more comfortable. - idontknow

4 Somebody sleeping right next to you making sounds in their sleep

I share a room with my little sister and older sister. My little sister can't sit still her sleep (my big sis has her own bed while me and my lil sis have 2 share 1) and my big sis snores VERY loudly

I guess I'm lucky that I don't share my room with anyone - Ananya

At least I sleep by myself in my own room. - cosmo

It be hard to sleep by someone snoring - trains45

5 Parties at your neighbor's house

To be honest, I never liked parties...And all the stuff associated with it - drinks, extreme loud senseless music with idiots dancing, All of this is out of my comprehension, AND they do it in night! To disturb the sane ones! - Ananya

At my grandmas there used to be neighbours who yelled and played music and had parties ALL THE TIME. They moved out but while they were there it was HARD TO SLEEP - Lunala

6 Animals

The dogs will wake you up...And some humans at night bark like dogs riding their two wheelers, Wonder who exactly the dog is... - Ananya

My cats are always screaming their head off to go outside. Even though I close my door at night, I can still hear it and it's extremely annoying. - thunderstar1124

My mom is allergic to like everything, so we don't have a pet (expect a turtle)

I hear cooing doves in the morning. Love it. - Userguy44

7 Somebody in the room next to you playing loud music

I had my neighbors at my old house crank music at night when I was trying to sleep, it was hard - trains45

I had neighbors who would play Indian music really loud during the night.

My neighbors are huge fans of hammering the walls, at night! To make it all the more harder to sleep, my sister watches stupid YouTube videos in the middle of the night, AT FULL VOLUME! My grandma's making all huff and puff in the room between mine and my sister's rooms, so sleeping through the night successfully is pretty rare. - PizzaGuy

My brother plays Barney songs in the middle of the night sometimes. It gets annoying and I can't sleep and I wake up late for school. - cosmo

Your brother shares a name with that annoying purple dinosaur. Don't be surprised. - PizzaGuy

8 Someone watching tv with the volume up high

That sounds like my brother watching Clarence at midnight and his room is right across from mine and I can still here the noises and can't sleep. - cosmo

Hello, I am here to tell you about a brand new amazing invention called HEADPHONES.

This really doesn't affect me unless it's VERY VERY AND VERY LOUD - JaysTop10List

No I keep the volume low - Ananya

9 Someone playing video games
10 Someone snoring

Yeah so true, it be hard to sleep by someone I know that snores loudly - trains45

My dad has the loudest snore known to mankind

I really hate when someone snore. The snore kept me from sleeping for a long night. - Delgia2k

My family snores and I can't sleep - speed

The Contenders

11 Nightmares

Ah! Should've never watched those Charlie Charlie videos all day and laughing at people acting so stupid when they don't know it's gravity and here I'm am 5:00 AM with my eyes wide open. I HATE YOU CHARLIE! GO BITE SOMEONE ELSE'S FINGER! - JaysTop10List

Nightmares can be very scary. - Userguy44

Fandoms are nightmares.

They can be very scary! - Neonco31

12 A thunderstorm

True I have a time I couldn't sleep because of loud thunder that kept waking me up and flashes of lightning - trains45

Very disturbing indeed - Neonco31

13 Homework

Just thinking all of those thoughts! What about if I did bad? Or I FORGOT TO DO MY HOMEWORK! OH HELL NO! IMMA DO THAT CRAP NOW! Lol. - JaysTop10List

14 Insomnia

Blame my phone, blame homework, but in the end. It's insomnia that's keeping me awake, I can spend hours eyes shut and still, exhausted with melatonin taken, I still wont be able to sleep. Non-insomniacs really must not know what that feels like, because they're hardly empathetic. - keycha1n

With your brain pushing to keep you awake, your life becomes cumulatively stressing. - PositronWildhawk

15 Crazy imagination

Oh yes My imaginations...About so many things that just get stuck in my mind and won't go...It's like a fact that the more you try to calm your mind the more the thoughts emerge - Ananya


My dreams in a nutshell

I relate this so much

16 Flies
17 Ghosts

Actually Spirits are real

Ghosts are not real. But even if they were, just call Ghostbusters, because Egon can be really sexy sometimes!

18 Excitement

Heres a story: Twas the night before Cristmas and all through the house, not a creature was stirring, oh, EXCEPT ME! I could NOT sleep, I was fidgeting, hot, and angry with the fact that I couldn't sleep. Until I fall asleep at ONE IN THE MORNING AND WAKE UP TIRED AND EXCITED! Well, at least I got the good stuff! - SeeU

I can sometimes be so very excited for something. This month, I'm visiting Bohol for the 4th time! - Neonco31

Happens on christmas - Lunala

19 Porn

This is horrible and disgusting to think about. I don't know what's wrong with people nowadays - JaysTop10List

How the hell is this not on the list?


20 Desire to constantly urinate

I kept having this last week at Guide camp and I got constantly yelled at by the leaders.

21 Your parents screaming

omg that's so wrong

Well if they're watching a horror movie, it's normal. But other than that if they're screaming during... Eww! I don't even want to think about it! - JaysTop10List

23 Your phone

One of the reasons I stay up... - Ananya

The best reason why - Neonco31

24 Low battery sound
25 Technology

Sometimes I open my dad's phone or keep my laptop firing up just to continue with my business. It's all in the night - Neonco31

Haha that's true, I love to watch movies at night or listen to music - Ananya

26 Squeaky bed

Once when I went to a college camp and stayed in the dorm, I stayed awake all night because the bed would squeak every time I moved. I'm one of those guys who moves around a lot while sleeping. It wasn't just me; I think that everyone had that problem. - Gg2000

27 Having to go to the bathroom
28 Your stupid baby sibling crying

Most unpleasant of all of these

29 Anxiety
30 Pain
