I sleep between 6 and 7 hours each night.

I have a pretty good routine.

I get to bed between 8-9 PM and wake at 4-5 AM.

I am a true Lark.

It is nice to eat lots of veggies and drink lots of water. And there is always room for better sleep hygiene.

I recommend using “the Pillow ” app.

There are good stats and info to help me keep track of my sleep. Awareness is key.

Develop a informed careful sleep pattern.

Stay away from pills, late nights and late night snacks.

This is how I slept last night.

My sleep session report from #pillow_app

Due to the time change it looks like I slept an hour less. Feel good and rested and will catch up on more sleep tonight.

We don’t know yet, isn’t that usually the case?

We sleep in theory because we need to rest or replenish the body.

We may only be able to do certain things in sleep to prepare the body for another days use,

Whatever the reason, a good nights sleep can not be substituted with any form of drug or nutrient or better behaviour.

Sleep looks like it is here to stay, like breathing!

Okay, lovingly call myself a ‘butthead’ because some jackass gives me a 3 page email, first thing this morning and expects me to explain the obvious.

I play along, it turns out to be a request to clean up a place, but has no specific location, name or address. This can be upsetting on many levels.

The original person receiving the complaint may lack sleep, same with the person receiving the complaint from his boss at the end of the day, same with me this morning.

Moral of the story, don’t take this butthead too seriously and I hope you get a good night’s sleep!

The Neurological Need For Sleep

How the body is regulated is far from a coherent form of understanding, but it is clear that we need sleep, nutrients,exercise, cleaning of all major systems and proper levels of resources to maintain the body and mind or and soul.

Without some or all of the above we breakdown through fatigue, we rust and self destruct through diseases.

Sleep restores energy levels, completes repairs and cleans and disposed of garbage in the body.

A healthy functional body does more to optimize and correct mistakes.

To go without regular sleep is a form of great harm.
