Friday 5 for March 26: Sleep

How many hours’ sleep do you need in order to be at your best, and what’s the minimum you can get on a regular basis and still be functional?

To be at my best I need 7, but I can survive the week on 5 a night.  But I really, really like that 7.  If I get 7 then I can get up and exercise.  Not been getting 7 very much lately...darn it...need to change that.

What’s your favorite sleeping position?

I have to sleep on my stomach!  I have trouble falling asleep if I am not on my stomach.  They say it is bad to sleep that way...but I can't help it...

What was the cause of your most recent difficulty sleeping?

When my allergies were acting up.  Who can sleep with a runny nose?

When you can’t seem to drift off to sleep right away, what are some things you do to bring about sleep?

I have a white noise app on my Android phone...that helps.  Or I might listen to music.

When did you last doze off at an inappropriate time or in an inappropriate place?

I don't do this.  I am very good at keeping myself awake.  Truthfully the last time it may have happened was in 1998 when I fell asleep at the wheel.  Since then I don't drive and I always make sure I have enough sleep otherwise I don't leave the house for work or anything.

  1. I'm a 4 hour sleeper. More than that--best come check to see why I'm unwell.
    Darn internal alarm--sometimes it means I get less than 4. That'll teach me for saying up later than I oughta.
