Read about that and other weird things people do while asleep.

The BBC has a story on unusual sleeping habits, including eating, having sex, and not breathing. But here’s an excerpt from the part on texting…

More people are reporting sending text messages during their sleep, says Dr Kirstie Anderson, who runs the Neurology Sleep Service for the Newcastle Upon Tyne NHS Foundation Trust. Considering the number of Britons who now own a mobile phone – 92% according to Ofcom – it’s not surprising. Many people also take them to bed.

“It is very common for people to do things in their sleep that they do repeatedly during the day,” says Anderson.

This is largely down to sleep disorders called parasomnias. These are unwanted behaviours that occur during sleep.

The article says the texts they send, fortunately, tend to make little sense. So maybe it’s a little less embarrassing than drunken texting.
