My other half says sleep is for the weak. LOL. I have heard somebody else say they will sleep when they are dead. I just love my bed and a nice sleep :-))) I don't think recharging my "batteries" is a waste.
Well we all have to sleep, or we will die, so it is hardly a waste of time. There's nothing I like more than to savour a sleep in, which to me means no time limits, no schedules, and days like this are rare. When we stay overnight at a hotel, we always ask for ' late checkout ', so we can have a sleep -in and take our time showering and eating. Its important to have a sleep - in now and again to give you the energy to cope with all the other days that have early starts. Sleep is restorative for the entire body, and we will get sick if we don't have enough of it.
Sleep is a necessity, it allows us to relax and recharge our inner self.
Sometimes after getting up I go back to bed for a 30 minute relaxation period, and I find that I feel more refreshed.
I just lie on the bed reading a book and drop off, waking after approx.30 mins.
It is never a waste of time and I never stay in bed until late like some do.
Vee, I manage to snatch an hour or two. You do get used to it and sometimes I feel okay, other times I'm so tired I wish I could have slept an hour or so more but life is what you make it so I just get on with my day.
When I was a teenager I hated sleeping, I refused to go to bed, and was possibly suffering insomnia. Now I'm 29 and LOVE my sleep. When I sleep well its an amazing journey to a great place I call dream land. So often I have lucid dreams, where I know its a dream and I have magical powers to do what ever I want! It can be truly fantastic.
On the other hand, when I have nightmares.... I then avoid sleep for a while.... get up and do some writing!
I love sleeping, but can never get my self to bed
before midnight! If iím flying interstate or I'm going on a cruise, I never get to bed until 2/3am of the morning Iím going way, so i only get about 4 hours sleep before I have to wake up again!
