'Sleep like a log' có từ log là khúc gỗ mới đốn hạ -> giống như bất động, thẳng cẳng như khúc gỗ, vì thế cụm từ này nghĩa là ngủ say như chết (sleep very soundly).

Ví dụ
Suffering from insomnia (chứng mất ngủ)? Try these 6 natural remedies (phương thuốc, biện pháp khắc phục) to sleep like a log: Lavender aromatherapy (dùng các chất thơm để gây cảm giác dễ chịu cho người bệnh), Deep breathing, Music therapy, Mind games, Consume rice and almonds at night, Rewind your day.

"I want to sleep like a log just once," said most Korean soldiers when asked about their biggest difficulty and discomfort in military life, a survey said Tuesday.

Anyone who crosses time zones regularly knows that jet lag can put a damper on your trip. But poor quality sleep can also hurt your health. Adjust more easily (and sleep like a log) by requesting an east-facing hotel room, suggests James Maas, Ph.D., a leading sleep expert and author of Sleep for Success. Exposing yourself to morning sunlight can help your body adapt to your new surroundings, he says.

    ''We did a story based on a commercial we saw where someone was bungy jumping for apples. In order to test whether it was possible I had to fall like a log and dive in where I could bite into an apple.

    ''I had to fall the same way every time and ignore what my body was doing so I could focus on biting something which was going to appear in like an instant and then disappear.

    ''I did it eight times and finally gave up. Adam managed only two - but then he throws up really easily.''
