Around 70 million Americans are said to battle chronic sleep deprivation. Whether it’s a stressful day at work, a crying newborn baby in need of a diaper change, or literally anything else (because let’s be honest, the world is a stressful place to live in sometimes), sleep deprivation is seriously no joke. Yet, sometimes it’s good for us to laugh at the things we struggle with in life. Here to help us, at least in this matter, are countless numbers of memes out there on getting that sweet shut eye. Sometimes it’s okay to simply laugh things off when our lives are in chaos, especially when life gets a little too serious.
Sleep, A Never-Ending Battle
At times, sleep is like a never-ending battle we so often lose as the constant demands of life get in the way of our ability to fully relax. Ultimately, everyone has their own methods for inducing melatonin production into their sleep patterns, such as taking a dose of melatonin gummies to fall into a blissful coma or limiting the amount of blue light they may consume before bed. And though these coping mechanisms can help, these methods surely are not a one size fits all kind of thing, as we each deal with our own set of problems, worries, and everyday stresses, which make the ability to fall asleep more and more difficult.
While experts recommend getting at least 8 hours of sleep every night, many of us are sacrificing precious beauty sleep with late work hours, parent duties, and other stress-inducing factors that steal our attention. Thus, our much needed sleep is often placed on the back burner. And though there is much to take seriously when it comes to sleep deprivation, social media users couldn’t help but create a pool of memes tied to inadequate sleep.
Memes, Take Us Away … To Sleep
Revolving around the desire to get efficient rest, the constant battle to stay awake, and irrational behavior that stems from sleep deprivation, these memes have been made into comical situations that many can relate to. The comic relief allows for people to find humor in their exhaustion and can help ease their stress. By serving as a coping mechanism for not getting enough sleep, sleep deprivation memes offer people a brief way out of their hectic life circumstances. These memes can also create a sense of community for those who may be dealing with similar issues.
And though the comical factor of sleep deprivation memes can help those battling the issue, it’s important to note that sleep deprivation is serious, resulting in critical effects on our mental and physical well-being. By prioritizing healthy sleep habits and task limits, rest assured that sleep deprivation can be a thing of the past in no time.
But until then, enjoy these hilarious memes while you try to … ahem … get some sleep.
