Many people stay up late, but they may not really “like” it, but because they cannot control it. Some people’s procrastination behavior is manifested as staying up late, and the efficiency during the day is not high. When the outside interference is ruled out, when the night is quiet, the thinking is active and the inspiration bursts into the peak of their creation.

According to John Hong, “I like staying up late because I can only do what I like at night because it ’s too busy during the day.” And more people are staying up late for revenge. Work and life are issues that everyone faces. Back home at night, I feel exhausted. Perhaps it is only late into the night that they can truly be themselves. At this time, they will make up for the lost day by staying up late. When we feel frustrated, we will unconsciously use other methods to make up for our shortcomings and ease our anxiety and anxiety. This is a form of compensation. Staying up late is a dissatisfaction with the status quo and an escape from working life.

Data show that 25.1% of people “often don’t want to end this day.” We do not want to end today and have no courage to face tomorrow, so we have to steal some time to be ourselves in the gap between today and tomorrow. Staying up late is a silent struggle for adults facing life, and a false sense of control in a runaway life. In the lonely night, this world is its own, or playing games, or chasing dramas. My world is my own master. This feeling is super cool. What everyone likes is just a sense of control over their lives. However, the next day, the reality was brought back to its original shape. The sleepless night owls struggled to get up to work, relying on coffee and green tea to “renew their lives” in order to cope with the work day. Staying up late is a vicious cycle. Staying up late for a long time will hurt your body and life. Want to work and live more efficiently, or for the reasons for staying up late, find ways to make some changes. “Only if you get enough sleep can you have a healthy body.” So you should try to get rid of the problem of staying up late.

Yanna, this was like poetry. It was kind of depressing but I am very happy I read it. I stay up late a lot but I never really want to. I think it is because of a dependace on technology, at least personally. that article speaks to why technology is bad for you before you go to sleep.

Dear Yanna,
I enjoyed reading your discussion post. I had never really thought about why I stay up late along with others. I think it is very interesting that you talked about how it is time to give ourselves a gap from today and tomorrow, because oftentimes I believe that is what it is along with procrastination. That being said I really enjoyed reading your post and I found a website that talks about why people stay up late and what it says about you.

Hi Yanna. I agree with what you said trying to get rid of staying up late. I also like to stay up late, although I know that staying up late is not good. But like you said in the text: “On a lonely night, I feel that this world belongs to me.” So I am also trying to get rid of the status quo. I have a link here to help you learn more.
