Typically, I have to get 8-10 hours of sleep a day. A Duke University study reported that women need more sleep than men. I must be particularly female because I think I need more sleep than the average human. I think one of the main reasons having kids scares me is the well known fact that you lose those precious hours of rest.
|If you're wearing a Snuggie in public you should probably go to sleep instead.|
When we went to Europe a few years ago, we did not stop. We went to the festival in Belgium, we explored Amsterdam and toured Paris. I decided to keep a sleep chart for our trip and this is what it looked like:
But I don't just need to be in a foreign country to stay awake.
If I'm really excited about something I can pass on sleep.
Things I will lose sleep for:
- A Concert
- Late night pizza
- The True Detective Finale (or any other really good show)
- If I have coffee past 3pm
- If I'm trying to get tickets for a music festival
- I have an assignment at work to finish
- I'm reading the last part of a good book
-The DJ is cranking the jams
Really, that's about it. I need my sleep. I guess a nap is in order today.
Did you watch True Detective?! What will you lose sleep over?
