[CHAT] Sleep Hygiene

How I have been sleeping of late can be perfectly summarised by this image.


Who needs sleep?

 

Which means that I am more than likely writing this when I should be sleeping.

 

Okay, I am. It is currently 3:36 am and I want nothing more than sleep, but know that I won’t be getting any anytime soon. So coffee shall be my friend today.

 

coffee

 

I know this, because my current inability to sleep can be explained by medical reasons. But not always is this the case. Most of the time, I am the one to blame for my lack of a full night's sleep.

 

For instance …

But most of all

So what do these three images have in common? They basically say that I have poor sleep hygiene. Wait, what? There is a hygienic way to sleep? I hear you all ask.

 

Indeed there is and we will be discussing what it looks like on Monday (14th March) as well as ways in which you could be sabotaging your sleep. Hint: It may or may not involve what you do around bed time.

 

To find out what time we shall be discussing this in your state, have a looksi at the image below.

Hey @ClCl @stonepixie

Re: [CHAT] Sleep Hygiene

Super keen on this chat, it's something I could definitely learn some more about.

Re: [CHAT] Sleep Hygiene

Heya everyone! 

 

Can't wait to have this awesome chat, but I do apologise in advance if I end up like this chick.

How much sleep did you get last night? How did this make you feel?

 

I'm not actually sure how much I got last night, all I know is that it wasn't enough. At one stage this morning, I was yawning every 5 minutes. Which isn't a good look when you are sitting on an interview panel.

Re: [CHAT] Sleep Hygiene

Hi Everyone! I'll be popping in and out tonight depending on how im feeling but will try my best to stay!

 

This topic is so relevant to me right now, I got roughly 7-8 hours sleep last night and I though I slept well but woke up so tired and been tired all day except for the few hours after my coffee this morning. It's strange, I guess I felt like I didnt get enough?

I got 8 hours sleep! It made me feel pretty good. Interestingly i was in a hotel room that was basically built with good sleep hygiene in mind....Hmm.

Re: [CHAT] Sleep Hygiene

Woah super cool @Ben-RO what do you mean by built with good sleep hygiene?

 

I think i have pretty bad sleep hygiene, im one of those bad people that always takes their laptop into bed..

Re: [CHAT] Sleep Hygiene

@Stealth_ninja i reckon there's a lot to be said for quality over quantity!

Re: [CHAT] Sleep Hygiene

Hiya @Ben-RO @Stealth_ninjaand @stonepixie

 

Man that sucks @stonepixie

 

How much sleep did you get last night? How did this make you feel?

 

I have a FitBit which means I can tell you exactlt how much I got. Hmm last night was an unsusual one (I got to sleep in). I got 8 hours 33 minutes with 24 minutes awake/restless apparently.
