So Sleepy

I like sleeping. I mean, I know, we all need it, but let’s be honest, some of us like it a whole lot more than others. I love sleep and I’m a pretty bad night owl. (But consider the cultural prejudices that make me say, “bad” night owl! I didn’t even realize until after I typed it.)

So refutation, from 3 Smart Things About Sleeping Late (more details in the article):
1. You may need more sleep than you think.
2. Night owls are more creative.
3. Rising early is stressful.

“Until the invention of the lightbulb (damn you, Edison!), the average person slumbered 10 hours a night.” Didn’t know that, didya? (I totally didn’t, myself.) Take that, early-bird, six-or-seven-hours-a-night people! Haha, Benjamin Franklin quoting, Leonardo da Vinci factoid spewing folks! :) [via Caterina.net]

  1. yeah I think I heard somewhere that the human body is designed to go to bed at 8 and wake up at 6 or something like that. I was like mmhmm…righhht.. Rising early is stressful though. Sometimes when I know I have to wake up early, it keeps me from falling asleep -_-;;

  2. mim- i think you’d be REALLY proud of me.
    on saturday, i got into bed for a nap at 4pm & didn’t wake up until 11pm!
    of course, i figured, that was already too late to get up and do anything, so i read for an hour and went back to bed until 8am the following morning!!!

  3. I’m so proud, grasshopper! :)
