in reply to Sleeping Patterns

I stopped by the Monastery last night, at about 1:30 AM, and noticed that there were a great many people still online.

Remember, your 1:30 AM may be someone elses 12:30 PM :)

I've recently seen some news reports that say Americans are getting less sleep than the recommended 8 hours.

I would have to look it up, but I recall seeing somewhere that we really only need 6 hours(for adults.. children need more)

How many hours of sleep do you get a night, and is it all at one time, or split into smaller chunks?

I sleep roughly from midnight to 5:30 AM. I get up, eat, meditate, and go to work. Sometimes I am alseep earlier or later, and sometimes I may sleep in until 6 or 6:30 if I need to. I sleep in (until *maybe* 9) on Sundays.

Do you have sleeping problems, and if so how do you cope with them?

I have no problems.

Do you feel that the studies on sleep are invalid and getting less sleep doesn't lead to illness and memory loss? *cough* huh? What was the question? *sneeze*

Can you be just as productive will little sleep?

As long as my body is used to the litte sleep. I find that I am more energetic and alert when I get less sleep. When I 'sleep in' until 9 on Sundays, I can sometimes be more groggy.

Are people adapting to busier lives by using something like caffine and neglecting sleep?

I use (but don't need) caffeine during the week, and for a cup of tea on the weekend days. But yes, I think peoples bodies adapt.

Does a higher stress level affect your sleeping patterns?

Well, maybe others. I don't get very stressed.

At what point do we all become so infused with caffine that our eyes will glow blue? :)

5 Jolt colas and half a box of No-Doze.

Cheers,
KM
