I don’t know whats going on with me and my sleeping patterns. I have to, HAVE to, sleep atleast 2wice a week for over 12 hours. Meaning that I get back home after work, have lunch and then sleep till 6 am tomorrow morning! and this goes on every week. I only have 3 full weekdays.

I don’t feel like I’m missing out on activities or outings. Although missing my family’s gathering 3 times in a row is not something I’m proud of, I never miss a gathering.. but I don’t feel guilty! I just love going back from work to my bed and sleep for the rest of the day. I look forward to it, actually.

I heard it’s supposed to get better with time, as in I’m supposed to get used to it and start adjusting to the hideous timings of work..so far, I am not.

    well from personal experience, getting used to not sleeping after lunch makes things a lot better but it’s very hard especially around 4 pm when ur surrounded by complete silence

    That is ridiculous! I can’t do that! I might do that for one day, but I love completing random tasks or enjoying the day.. might take a small nap but thats about it!

    Having a big lunch is a recipe for disaster, especially if rice is involved and double especially if it’s m3addas or mmawwash.

    Usually there’s a certain period after work when you crave the bed, but if you pass it you don’t feel sleepy anymore.

    I suggest that you force yourself to not sleep after work and see how you feel. Do something in that time (other than watch tv), go out and do some things that you’ve been putting off.

    With time you’ll have a better feeling when your body actually needs sleep or not.

    And one final thing, if you do sleep, use an alarm. Two hours of sleep is more than enough after work.

    After 4 years of work I still did not ‘adjust’ and sometimes, like you, sleep all day. By the way, my most recent sleep marathon was yesterday! 🙂

    I know it is wrong but I love it… Dedicating a day each week to recharge is great because I feel that my week is actually a day shorter!

  9. Yousef says:

    Looking for ways to shorten my week is becoming an obsession for me these days

  10. Bo7amad says:

    Adjusting to a new lifestyle, like work for instance, makes you want to sleep more. Reason? You focus or worry alot throughout the day or carry to much NEW information.

    You will get through it. you probably need a little while to get with the program.

    Tip: Do not reach out for panadol/aspirin to ease your mind or help you sleep.

    Hope this helps 🙂

    The key word is ICE… and MOM.

    Tell your mom to bring a couple of cubes and throw them at the back of your neck after one hour of sleeping. It should wake you up in time for your gathering and you can go back to bed at a reasonable time so that you’re not exhausted after work the next day. ICE I tell you. Try it!

    (If that doesn’t work other things might like asking your mom to spray fleet all around your bed so that she can sort of smoke you out. You’ll get up from the smell and want to leave your room.)

  15. Abdulmohsen says:

    fleet? That is very cruel, humiliating but effective! 🙂

    great idea!

    At the beginning of every new job is a steep learning curve. You are actually doing a smart thing – studies show sleep helps you incorporate new learning into your skill set. You are exhausted from so much new information, and a new routine. Slowly, you will get used to it, and resume much of your former activities.

    The other solution I think is…
    We should work at night instead of morning, no body likes to wake up
