Marcus would like to claim that he follows the Jack Reacher school of sleeping:
Sleep when you can, because you never know when you're going to sleep again.
In fact as the years pass by sleep is not so much a necessity more of a demanded or justified luxury.
In earlier times and befitting a career in the IT industry Marcus was proud to state that his nightly sleep quota would average out at about 5 hours. I would famously say and still feel that if I goto sleep after 03.00 in the morning then I will certainly be grumpy to rise at 07.00, but 08.00 would be just fine.
But today I am reformed and would say that
- Even if you can survive on a consistently shorter sleep cycle, you can also appreciate how delicious it is to sleep longer.
- I'm now a personal advocate of 8 hours sleep per day, including an afternoon nap of about 1 hour
- If you invite me over don't be offended if after chatting and getting very comfy I take a nap right then and there
So let's hear it for a lifestyle that includes a respectable amount of sleep per night leaving us fitter and more alive to face the challenges of the coming day.
