RE: The Sleep Thread
Hey Cufflink, is your sig a ref to Unbearable lightness of being?

I'm experimenting at the moment with the 8 hour regimen. Bed at 10, up at 530... wait that doesn't make 8. Oh well. Anyway, it's my normal routine. For a while earlier this year my sleep patterns were totally messed and I was struggling, so I made a conscious effort to go back to it and I'm a lot happier Smile

No it's not. I didn't even know the phrase was referenced in ULB, which is on my list of Books I Should Read. Thanks for cluing me in! I took the quote from the original source, the manuscript score of Beethoven's last string quartet, where he had written the words "Muss es sein?" ["Must it be?"] over a musical phrase that sounded like a question, and "Es muss sein!" ["It must be!"] over a later phrase that sounded like an answer. I was reading an analysis of the quartet yesterday and that mysterious Q&A tickled me.

My own sleep anecdote:

Sixteen years ago I put in an all-nighter to finish some work I had procrastinated over and could no longer put off. It was a relief to finally get it done. And with plenty of caffeine, I thought I was doing fine the next day. You can probably see what's coming . . . Driving home from the office that evening, I conked out at the wheel and rear-ended the car ahead of me, causing a chain collision. Fortunately traffic was moving fairly slowly, and no one was injured. I learned my lesson. Never again.

Woo straight from the source eh? I'm not 100% sure it's that book that there's a discussion of it, but I'm pretty damn sure. p value < 0.05.

RE: The Sleep Thread
I sleep very well thanks to my friend MJ Big Grin

I do sleep with earplugs in, tho, as I am very noise sensitive.

RE: The Sleep Thread
I sleep a lot less than I used to but my doctor says that's normal...for someone my age...damn I hate that phrase.

I sleep around 6 hours a night on a good night, often awakened at some point or many points because the dogs have heard something and set off the alarm.

Work means I have to be a morning person but on weekends I revert to night owl, but no matter when I get to sleep I will wake up in 4-6 hours even if I don't have to. Insomnia is a problem sometimes but hasn't been an issue lately.

Oh, for the days when 12-14 hours of sleep came easy. It wasn't that long ago when I HAD to have 8 hours of sleep to even think about being able to function.

And I almost never remember dreaming any more. I don't think I am asleep long enough to get that far.

I'm not anti-social. I'm pro-solitude.

RE: The Sleep Thread
I like to sleep 10-12 hours, but unfortunately, I have to get up at 5:30 AM to get to work at 6 AM, so I sleep around 6-7 hours. It a disaster for me. I miss my beauty sleep...
