Viewers have been left terrified after the man who sailed to the Pacific Ocean on his own revealed how he sleeps.

As previously reported, Luke, who goes by "sailing songbird" on TikTok, uses the social media platform to document his travels.

The content creator used to teach music at Washington Middle School in Seattle before giving up his career to follow his dreams.

In one of his recent videos, Luke showed people how he sleeps when he's taking a break from sailing in the Pacific.

Watch Luke's video below:

The traveler said that it was "night 18" of sailing across the deep ocean alone, and then demonstrated his sleeping style when there are high seas.

He swayed from one side to the other back and forth, slamming into the wall of his cabin and the side of his bed constantly.

Luke noted that "wedging" yourself before dozing off is important as it can reduce you from "flying around everywhere".

He then told his followers to be grateful for a flatbed, quipping: “I would pay a pretty penny for a flatbed right now, goodbye, wish me luck."

Many people flooded the comment sections with their shocked reactions as one user said: "That's why I personally chose not to sail across the ocean. That and I've never sailed before."

Another wrote that they "would be so sick and my anxiety of sinking while asleep would torture me," while a third added: "The constant thought of the boat being so close to tipping over legit everytime it turns to the side makes me not wanna do this."

One user who sailed alone offered some advice, suggesting that a hammock and bungee lines might reduce all the tossing and turning.

"Seems that a bunch more cushiony pillows would fix the problem," someone else said, while another added: "You should build a harness bolted directly into the bed frame so you can hook into it and remain stationary when sleeping."

Luke surpassed a full month out in the Pacific. On day 31, he decided to do paddle-boarding for some "exercise," and noticed that he was stuck "in the doldrums," where there is "no wind".

He showed a screen recording of his location on Google Maps, where he was "about as far away from land as you can be on this planet".

Despite Mexico appearing to be one of the closest destinations, albeit a long distance away, he found that there was "absolutely nothing on the horizon".

"I am well over 1,000 miles away from any piece of land and it's so quiet," he said. "This definitely feels like one of the more incredible things I'm privileged enough to experience."
