I haven't been sleeping well lately. I blame the playoffs. Darn those late-night hockey games. Then after hockey I'm usually still wide-awake and decide to watch late night....usually Jay Leno and a bit of David Letterman. Those shows are so funny! I usually set my TV to sleep and then fall asleep watching them which is typically around midnight. Then I need to get up at 7am to work the next day.
7 hours of sleep is not enough. I think I may make "get more sleep" a goal of mine for the rest of this month. I am very awake once I get up, but getting up is hard to do!! I always regret not going to bed early when my alarm is beeping at me, but then the very next night I don't want to go to bed early. It's a vicious, vicious cycle!
How about you, how much sleep do you get an average night? Are you a night or morning person? Are you able to function 100% without a good night's sleep?
I was reading about "sleep debt." Yep just like money debt we have sleep debt where we need to "pay back" our bodies the sleep we deprived it of. So THAT'S why I sleep in on Saturdays!! The average adult needs 8 hours per night! I need to work on that! Kids (6-10) need 10-11 hours of sleep! Wow that's a lot of sleeping!
