Sweet Sleep

on May 28, 2008

At one of my new favorite blogs, Save The Assistants, posted an article about sleep (below). I thought it was pretty appropriate since I have been thinking about my weird sleep habits recently. What do I mean by weird sleep habits? Let’s look at the past few days:

Friday: Went to bed at 3:30am, woke up at 10:30am. Total sleep time: 7 hours

Saturday: Went to bed at 3:30am, woke up at 8:30am. Total sleep time: 5 hours

Sunday: Went to bed at 6:00pm, woke up at 7:00am. Total sleep time: 13 hours

Monday: Went to bed at 12:30pm, woke up at 6:30am. Total sleep time: 6 hours

Tuesday: Went to bed at 5:30pm, woke up at 5:30am. Total sleep time: 12 hours

What the heck? that’s 43 hours in 5 days. the 12 and 13 hour days are the weird ones. I haven’t been felling so hot, so maybe that’s why, but still: weird.


Buzzword: Junk Sleep

How is it that you manage to get eight hours of shut eye and still be exhausted and groggy all day at work? It turns out it’s not enough to sleep–you need to get the right sleep. The term “junk sleep” means any kind of sleep that isn’t deep and blissful. It could be the half-asleep state you’re in when you read a book or think about your ongoing stresses. It could be sleep where you get interrupted or wake up to adjust temperature, steal the sheets back from your significant other, or go to the bathroom.

What to do? This article gives tips on how to create a sleep routine, which gets your body used to going to sleep at the same time every day.

And this one gives feng shui tips to make your bedroom more rest-friendly.
