When I was younger, someone had told me that you spend at a minimum, one-third of your life sleeping. Ever since I heard this supposed fact, I vowed to sleep less so I could spend my life LIVING, and not SLEEPING. But is this even true??? And what good is a person sleep-deprived??
Last night I slept for 11 hours. Normally, I am lucky to get 6 hours of sleep. I still have huge bags under my eyes and am using soda to give me a kick start for the day. I still can’t find that perfect concealer that takes away the constant bags underneath my eyes, so I suspect I always look like a zombie to people. But maybe those bags are caused by constantly NOT sleeping.
I also often fall asleep on my couch, and not my bed. My bed is most uncomfortable, so it does not seem to bother me. I never felt the need to buy a nice, expensive, comfortable bed because then it would go against my philosophy of sleeping less. I figured if I had an uncomfortable bed, I would sleep a lot less. LOL… I remember one time at the Wynn/Encore in Las Vegas, I slept my trip away because I couldn’t remove myself from the insanely comfortable bed. I felt compelled to BUY the bed (they sold them in the Wynn store at the hotel), but realized I could buy too many pairs of shoes for the price of the bed…and decided against it.
I know this is complete rambling, but I just wonder if I have been doing myself a disservice by never sleeping, or perhaps if my idea of “living it up and not sleeping it up”, has panned out well for me thus far. This is just something I have been pondering this morning :-)
