Yesterday, I heard a child walking hand-in-hand with his mother squeal, “I love me some sleep!” His mother scooped him up in her arms and he rested his head on her shoulder and fell asleep.
We all appreciate The Art of Power Napping and we try to be cogent during the day to avoid American Somnambulism, but what about our need for deep sleep?
When I was younger — during those awful high school
years — there were days when I slept 12 straight hours and still woke
Now, as I age, I find I need less and less sleep and I
wonder why? Is it the metaphysical time bomb ticking inside of me:
Each. Second. Is. Time. Lost. Forever! Or does an older body just
demand less sleep?
I currently average four hours of sleep a day and if I
add a couple of 10 minute power naps during the day, I feel good and
fresh and not sleepy at all.
Do you sleep a full eight hours every night?
Is there a minimum number of hours you need to sleep in order to function during the day?
