I sleep

I sleep in the morning.
I sleep in the night.
I sleep in the day and the first ray of light.
I sleep in the kitchen.
I sleep in the car.
And when I get thirsty,
I sleep in a bar.

I sleep on the sofa.
I sleep in the park.
I sleep in the glow of the dawn and the dark.
I sleep for a while at the supermarket store.

And then, when I wake up…

… I sleep a bit more.

Question: How many hours do you sleep per day?

I need atleast 8-9 hours of sleep to feel fully rested πŸ˜‚

    1. It’s dependent on the individual.

      Sleep is about recovery, just like caloric intake is about energy. There is a base line, the amount necessary to keep you functioning well, and there is too much and too little.

      If you exercise intensely, you’ll need more sleep to recover, more deep sleep.
      If you do a lot of mentally demanding work, you’ll need more sleep to recover, more REM sleep.

      1. Interesting. I think it also has something to do with the genes & age too. There are these two kids in my neighbourhood. One plays all day long, studies well and I can still see him up till 12 ‘o clock in the night singing or dancing. He gets along with just 4-5 hours. The another one plays hardly plays and his mom always complains about him being a slob. He sleeps atleast 10 hours!

  2. So Rythmic! Some sleep experts say it depends on your chronotype and hour you go to sleep. I find that if I sleep at 10pm I can be well rested and alert by 4am.

      Oh and thank you for letting me know that it’s a baby sloth. I thought it was a baby koala. Having said that, both sleep 15-20 hours a dayπŸ˜†
