In our society, a lack of sleep seems to have become a status symbol. I don’t understand it, but have fallen into that trap.
“I slept only three hours last night” with the implied, “Look how fabulous I am/how hard I can work while sleep-deprived.”
I sleep an average of seven-and-a-half hours a night. Less than that and I’m tired all day (not a caffeine-drinker)-more than that and I walk around like I’m on cold medicine. You know that ‘my head is tethered to my neck only by a thin string’ feeling? That’s me if I sleep for too long.
Tell me how you slept last night. No judgments. I promise.
