Mid Week 5 Questions — The Zzzzzz Edition

1. How much sleep do you need . . . a full 8 or can you get by on less?

2. When you get in bed, do you typically go right to sleep, watch TV, read. other?

3. Shower before bed or when you get up?

I like our new questions and answers segment Steve :smiley:

1. How much sleep do you need . . . a full 8 or can you get by on less?
I have a very whacked out sleeping arrangement with my body. I have bouts of insomnia followed by near coma induced sleep periods :wink: On average I sleep about 6 to 7 hours and then just wake up. But, every few weeks I go into a cycle of insomnia where I am up for nearly 2 days and then sleep for 12 hours. Yep, it’s weird, odd and no one knows why LOL … it’s just me :slight_smile:

2. When you get in bed, do you typically go right to sleep, watch TV, read. other?

I watch YouTube for about an hour and then I’m ready to fall asleep. Occasionally I’m so tired I’m out when my head hits the pillow.

3. Shower before bed or when you get up?

When I get up. Can’t stand going to bed with wet hair. And I would be too tired to bother drying it :wink:

4. What’s your beverage of choice to get you going in the morning?

If I am home … Tea … if I’m up and out on the road … coffee.

5. Are you a napper?

I can be … but not too often. My naps turn into hours of sleep. I never could figure out how to power nap … I would wake up 2 hours later lol :smiley:

1. How much sleep do you need . . . a full 8 or can you get by on less?
6.5 - 7 hours. If I get less than 5 hours of sleep I can wake up feeling energized and upbeat, but end up crashing around 6 or 7 that night.

2. When you get in bed, do you typically go right to sleep, watch TV, read. other?
I’ll just by lying down for 30 minutes to an hour, trying to fall asleep. Sometimes I’ll literally be there all night trying to sleep. I have a routine where I don’t use any sort of screen device for 1.5-2 hours before bed.

3. Shower before bed or when you get up?
I always shower before bed because I run 3-6 miles every night and I’m usually pretty sweaty. If I feel I need it I’ll shower in the morning, like before a meeting or if I got really hot overnight. On weekend mornings I always shower.

4. What’s your beverage of choice to get you going in the morning?
I drink 2 glasses of water when I first wake up, then coffee on my way out the door.

5. Are you a napper?
Absolutely not. If I take a nap I wake up groggy and disoriented. I just feel completely off. I’ve tried quick naps, but nothing ever really happens.

I love naps. Especially on days when I don’t get the 8 hours of sleep.

I think I can get by on less, but the mind is the first thing damaged by insufficient sleep.

Seven to seven and a half and I’m good. I can get by on less for a couple of days, but I start dragging on day two.

I get in bed and am asleep within just a few minutes.

When I get up. Shower before bed, and my hair will be pointing in every direction the next morning.

I don’t eat or drink anything in the morning.

Not unless I’ve gone two or three days without enough sleep at night. That doesn’t happen often, though. I really dislike falling asleep during the day or evening. It makes me feel disoriented and groggy for hours afterwards and makes it difficult to sleep that night, which sets the stage for a groggy next day.

1. How much sleep do you need . . . a full 8 or can you get by on less?
I have 3 kids, my body won’t let me get more than 8, even if I have the opportunity my body wakes me up. I’d say I need 7 … but oddly enough I do pretty well on 5 for a few days, but I can’t do more than a few days on 5 hours of sleep.

2. When you get in bed, do you typically go right to sleep, watch TV, read. other?
I go right to sleep. I don’t have a TV in my bedroom. I watch my TV, ready a book to mess around on my phone or tablet out in the living room, but once I head to bed all that stuff is “off”.

3. Shower before bed or when you get up?
When I get up.

4. What’s your beverage of choice to get you going in the morning?
Water.

5. Are you a napper?
As I’ve gotten older I will admit, I love, love, love naps. Oh man. I was laid off once 4 years ago and had some “down time”, and I have to tell you after the kids went to school and my wife went to work I looked forward to nap time. Ha. Don’t get me wrong, I cleaned up around the house, I was job hunting, I was watching things on Netflix, etc. But napping in the middle of the day was amazing. Ha!

I just need more. I get 5 hours. Then I wake up. No matter what.

I intend to watch some TV, but always go right to sleep. Hell, I’ve been up 19 hours!

When I get up. I couldn’t go out in the world in fresh-out-of-bed condition.

20 oz. of chilled water; very first thing. It’s a more profound re-hydration sensation than I’ve ever gotten any other way. Tried it once and never stopped. Another 20 ounces about an hour later. Don’t like coffee.

Never on purpose. What? I gotta wake up? Again today?
