To Sleep, Perchance To Dream

Sleep is one-third of our lives: write a post about it. Do you love naps? Have trouble falling alseep? Wish you could remember your dreams? Remember something especially vivid? Snuggle under a blanket, or throw the windows wide open? Meditate on sleep.

Sleep, is comfort at the end of a long day or a tiring week. I used to take naps when I was in my 20s but I started thinking that napping in the afternoon is not a good thing/habit to have so I forced myself to do so. When I am at home during the weekends or on a holiday I tend not to nap in the afternoon unless I haven’t slept well the previous night and did not get my 40 winks in and therefore I am tired and sleepy. Those days I will end up sleeping for an hour or so in the afternoon.

Now when I am ill that is a different matter all together. A really high fever and a bad cold and cough followed by a breathing issue can me feel very weak and rest is what I need. Then I could sleep for a few hours in a day other than my actual bedtime. I have done it a lot but not that often. I just I don’t take naps that much. Sometimes I feel that I wish I could, it would refresh me. But my brain is very active and easily distracted so I tend to think about a lot of things and this keeps me from falling asleep unless I am really sleepy and/or tired.
