So, again a fun time 🙂 Yup, I know we are all lazy bums (except those who are really active all day long, kudos to you) who totally love sleeping!! So, what has been happening recently is that my sleeping time is getting stretched way beyond the permissible limits of 8 AM and I am getting late to work every day!!! No, I am not sleeping late either. I am going to bed by 11:45 PM at max. And, whenever I get up before 9 AM, I have a hang over and feel sleepy and tired everyday.
Generally, everyone’s bodies have their own sleep requirements and need respective hours of sleep everyday. Mine is generally 8-9 hours a day and if I sleep later than 11, I tend to sleep more. If I sleep at 9 (sometimes I have to when I get headaches), I am awake by 2 AM which is extremely inconvenient. Also, I prefer not to sleep in the evenings coz it gives me really weird dreams and the night time is entirely screwed. So, I prefer not to stay up late.
Btw, did you know sleeping more has many repercussions on our physical and mental health.
- You get fatter
- You get lazier
- Your metabolism goes for a toss
- You feel aimless and without a purpose
- You tend to get more depressed and stressed
There are just so many reasons for not sleeping into the late hours of the day. I feel best when I wake up to the early morning sun. Oh btw, getting up early would give you more time to get your vitamin D safely as well.
