Not only do I lack the motivation to do a lot of art as I once did, but I'm tired a lot of the time. I just did a bit of google research on need for sleep, and it turns out that adults really need 9 to 10 hours a night. I also learned that that meme about older adults needing less sleep is a myth.
I don't drink caffeine, which, despite all the stuff you read about how good it is for you, coffee especially, is really a killer of natural bodily rhythms. And I don't have any physical problems or ailments, nor am I taking any medications that make one want or need more sleep.
I just think that overall, I don't get enough sleep, even with afternoon naps. And I really love to sleep. I love lying down on the couch, reading for a bit, and then drifting off to sleep. I love lying in bed at night, also usually reading for a bit, feeling sleep overtake me, turning out the light, turning over on my side, getting comfortable, and falling asleep. I look forward to it at the end of the day.
So here's to sleeping more! Have a good week. xx
