sleep

“To be, or not to be, that is the question:
Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
And by opposing, end them. To die, to sleep
No more, and by a sleep to say we end
The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks
That flesh is heir to; ’tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wish’d. To die, to sleep
To sleep, perchance to dream—ay, there’s the rub,
For in that sleep of death what dreams may come,
When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
Must give us pause; there’s the respect
That makes calamity of so long life” Hamlet : Act 3, Scene 1

I’m in no hurry to die. But I’ve heard that a lack of sleep correlates to weigh-gain.

Now it may be because you’re awake more hours and therefore possibly eating more.

Or perhaps the body needs sleep as part of its job of metabolism.

Whatever the reason, getting the so-called “traditional” 6-8 hours of sleep may be elusive for some people.

Yet I recently read an article suggesting that this wasn’t the norm a couple of centuries ago.

And that having two smaller periods of sleep is quite alright.

Certainly the parts of the world that practice a siesta seem to manage just fine.

Sweet dreams!
