7 ways to sleep in class

1. Find a spot where you won't get noticed by the teacher or other students, as best as possible. Make sure there is a friend near you to wake you up if necessary.

2. Try to cup your face if you are reading something. To do this, cup your hands around your eyes and rest your chin in your palms.

3. The Desk Method: Put your arm and head in the usual positions. Reach inside your desk, as if you are rummaging for something.

4. The "I'm taking notes method": Place some paper or notes, preferably with some writing on them, on the table. Place your left elbow on the table and rest the corner of your forehead on the heel of your left palm. Face your head downwards so that you are looking at the edge of your desk. Hold a pen in your right hand to the paper in front of you, as though you were writing something. Also, you can adjust your seat so that you tilt your head and body away from the teacher as much as possible. Switch hands where necessary so that the arm you're resting on shields you from the teacher.

5. The Book Method: Set up your left arm in the same way as the last method. Open a book and place it on your lap. Place your head down on your arm. Place your right hand on the pages.

6. The Book Method #2: Place a hardcover book on your desk opened to the very middle (so the pages don't turn themselves.) Put your elbows on your desk next to the book with your forearms up. Using your hands shield your eyes like a sun visor/ baseball cap.

7. Book Method #3: One very comfortable way to sleep in class, assuming that the teacher does not care if you sleep, is to simply put a book flat on your desk, and rest your forehead on it. While doing this it is important to just keep your arms relaxed in your lap. The downside to this method is it makes it quite obvious you are or are trying to sleep. The major benefit of this method is that it doesn't cause your arms or any other part of your body to "fall asleep" (no pun intended), thus allowing you to sleep longer without being awoken by your arms tingling in discomfort.
