Why do you stay up late?

personally I find myself to be a lot more relaxed and creative at night. There’s no stress, you do what you want to do and no one else is awake to tell you otherwise, compared to during the day when there’s always things that have to be done, whether it be work or chores, a time when people expect things from you.

It’s a feeling that I can't really replicate during the day. drawing or reading in the dark while it rains outside with a cup of tea in hand is very comfy, a time when you can truly unwind.

I cant keep a normal sleeping schedule. But moreover at night people arent around to be annoying.
I sleep excessively, sometimes just a couple hours off an entire day, but I find myself waking up in the late evening or early morning most often.
It might just be that it's easier to get out of bed when it's cooler and quieter.
Being around people makes me anxious, so I think part of my preference might be the feeling of fewer (conscious) people being around too.
I'm too lazy to fall asleep.

Your job or semester will always come back.
simply dont have enough free time
spending a third of the day sleeping is pretty dumb too
Late at night is when you're tired and your inhibitions drop, and I've noticed that's when I get less self-conscious when I'm creating stuff. I can throw around ideas without that voice in me going "dude that would suck, that's not good enough, don't use that" to nearly everything, but the problem is that I can't focus as well. So my usual method is to lay out the groundwork (e.g. the main melody for a song) while it's late and I'm less inhibited, then in the following afternoon or evening, fine-tune it (add bass/drums/etc, mix it, stuff like that) now that I have a sharper mind.

I find it easier to feel things and be myself during the night, There is something very oppressive feeling about the day.

I can exist outside of person, place, and time. My contemplation is done by night. My reinvention is done by night.
Most of the time, my restless mind keeps me up. Sometimes the nightmares chase the sleep away. Sleeping often feels less restful than being awake.

true, you then decide whether or not to suffer the consequence of being sleep deprived and not being able to function the following day. when I didn’t have as many responsibilities I use to do so often but it started to drive me a little insane

>>51
I suppose during the day we’re always so busy, distracted or spend time on tasks we need to focus on that we don’t really have the time to sit down and think about ourselves and our feelings

I should do my schoolwork during the day. Should, but instead I spend the day doing jack shit. Where the fuck does the time go?
I feel liberated when everyone else is asleep.
I'm a night owl ever since gradeschool to college, my first and current job is on the late shift. I think I'm just a night person in general.
As others have noted, lack of inhibitions (good for creativity) and lack of noisy people are the main reasons. There's a nice atmosphere to the night. I don't loathe the day so much as I used to, but I will always appreciate the night.
I wake up at night and sleep during the day to avoid everyone around me. And i find it relaxing, calm and quiet.
I love the quiet, and I like the dark. I used to drive home from night classes at 12am and seeing practically no cars on the freeway and literally no cars in my city was nice. It's so quiet, so calm. It's the same reason I like being alone so much; people are chaotic, noisy, and distracting.
I have a bad habit of eating before I go to bed, so my sleep schedule is constantly fucked. I do feel a lot better at night, though.
It's quiet and this sense of peace is very conductive to learning. You can get lots of shit done when there isn't interruptions and distractions all the time.
When it comes to rain, ever since I was a kid I was kind of a sperg. I remember sitting in the rain for hours once when I was little. It's funny that I like the rain since I hate actually being in water, makes me feel like I'm being crushed
>>170
I can agree with all of that except for being in water. There's something special about going underwater during a big storm and hearing the rainwater splash on the surface of the sea.

I don't want tomorrow to come.
But I also don't want today to stay.

What I would like to do instead however is to fuck sleep, cum inside, and then take responsibility.
>>166
>bad habit of eating before I go to bed
This is my exact same problem. It always ends up fucking over my sleep when I do eventually get some rest.
>>209
Try to eat at 6pm or 7pm, you'll feel better and lose weight. Rating before sleeping stuffs your metabolism.

It just feels better when I go to bed around 4AM. I feel more active in those hours of the night. I don't technically have any morning obligations so maybe I should allow it to happen. Is it bad for your health?
>>30
I love the cold, the silence and the emptiness. Recently, I've been sleeping all day, waking up at 7PM and going to bed at 6AM.

i guess like many here have mentioned,

i just felt better and more happy when the sun sets and more so during midnight hours. as cliche it may sound,i'm more alive and more comfortable about able to be myself.

and i guess also due to the fact that the climate of where i'm at, is just easily to get really tired/lethergic during the day.

>>342
>Is it bad for your health?

i've read about how our Circadian rhythm ("biological clock") is influenced by changes in light.. but generally if you are able to get a full 8-hour uninterrupted sleep, i guess u're pretty ok regardless of whether u sleep during daytime or nighttime.
Just a question for everyone in this thread. As everything for me was cancelled due to coronavirus, (work, classes, etc) and now I’m in quarantine at home with nothing to do, how can I safely shift my sleeping schedule to sleep during the day and wake up at night? Right now I’m following a regular routine of going to sleep around 10 pm then getting up around 9-12 am the next day. I really want to try a sort of nocturnal routine for at least once in my short lifetime. I haven’t tried inverting my sleep schedule before, so I’m kinda confused as to how I could just stay asleep throughout the day right after having gotten up. Any suggestions?
>>656
You have two options:

1) Stay awake throughout the whole next day and night until the time when you want to fall asleep, you'll be exhausted and fall asleep.

2) Slowly wind forward the time that you go to sleep each day, go to sleep at 12, then 2, 4, 6, 8.

My advice personally is never do the first way unless you absolutely have to, sleep deprivation is horrible. I'd also say whenever you wake up leave yourself a few hours of daylight, otherwise you'll be waking up in the dark every day and you'll feel like shit.
Why do I wake up? I could close my eyes and sleep forever; so I could truly wake up from this dream called "Life".
So I can comfypost with you guys.

with current situation (cities getting lock down and people working from home), guess more people would stay up late?

>>666

👌 alright~!
>>667
I've been doing lots of allnighters and staying up late ever since I didn't have to go to work anymore. It's 1:30 AM currently.

Oh hai satan

Because I like it. Like other anons have said, the solitude, silence, and even just the drop in temperatures is exhilarating. It used to be believed that the full moon and night air made you crazy, and I fully believe that. Something changes when you take a deep breath of cool air and look out at the landscape, any landscape, as it's reduced to silhouettes in the silver light. I have responsibilities during the day that unfortunately make it difficult for me to spend as much time in that other world as I would like, but I still make it work however I can. Pic related. Night=freedom.
>>656
I'm in quarantine because of covid-19 as well, going to definitely changing my sleep schedule for the night and just start posting here, keeping the circulation of content going. I wish you luck with your mission anon, I'm going to try and nap today and then stay up all night with the hopes of my sleep schedule shifting.

I recently 'acquired' an immense stockpile of FDS games and I've been having the time of my life in the lockdown.

This for example: https://www.mariowiki.com/Kaettekita_Mario_Bros.

Its the last Mario game for the famicom and it's a lot of fun.
>>30
I used to do it to avoid the world, because of my insecurities, etc.
Now of course there's a plague on and I'm avoiding the world because of that.
I can't wait to nightwalk again.
>>657
>never do the first way unless you absolutely have to, sleep deprivation is horrible.
That, and it hardly even works. You'll make it through the first day and find your tendency hasn't miraculously flipped overnight.
Well cause we're stuck inside all the time, I've done it so that our lives aren't in sync and we get some alone time from one another.
During school I liked the silence and internet slowing down. Nothing to distract me. Throw on some music and crush assignments.

Now days it's because video games. I'll be lower rank overall because its harder at night but I get to play with higher skill players and people who try. No throwers, no squeakers, no leavers
I don't know, honestly. I'll take sleeping pills every night and procrastinate past sleeping until I decide to go to sleep after a night of browsing the Internet.
It's fucking over my body and I hate myself because of it

Many reasons:
- After the day's work is done I need a lot of time to mentally decompress from it. Five hours or more.
- When I make a good-faith effort to get to bed early I just sleep like shit. If I'm going to be tired anyway, might as well get the benefits of staying up late.
- My mood seems to be worst in the evenings, but after a few hours of suffering through that I get a second wind. I really do not want to waste the times during which I get to feel good.
- Things I have to do pile up until I get them all done in one night.
- I get absorbed in a particular piece of fiction and want to continue reading/watching it for hours.

>Why do you stay up late?
It was kind of just a natural habit when I was a kid. I didn't want to sleep at night and I'd get caught if I tried to play vidya so I stayed up entire nights watching Adult Swim with the volume at 1%. Years of procrasting and then finishing work the night before ended up reinforcing the habit. Now I just can't sleep before 3 AM.
