    Sleep: GET SOME!


    So I’ve been lacking on the blogs.

    I blame the fact that there’s only 24-hours in a day and between working, and setting up a new place, and seeing friends, and showering, and preparing meals and sleeping, etc, etc, etc. I could easily use a 30-hour day.

    And I’m only taking care of one person (side note: I don’t know how working parents do it)

    I have a bad habit of sacrificing sleep to get stuff done.  This started back in university and it’s sort of carried through into my “professional” life today.

    And it’s BAD.

    And it must STOP.

    Personally, I need 6 hours sleep.

    Sometimes, I try to function on 5 or even 4 and I’m starting to notice the consequences.

    Last week I stayed up until 1:30 am, doing work.  When my alarm went off at 6:30, I simply turned the thing off and fell back into my deep sleep.  I rolled over at 8am, the time I should technically be rolling into work.

    (Keep in mind I’ve been with the company for less than 2 months).

    If putting my job in jeopardy isn’t a clear sign that I need more sleep, I don’t know what is!

    The same exact thing almost happened this morning, but luckily I rolled over at 7:15 as opposed to 8:00, which left me just enough time to throw on some clothes and boot it to work (without coffee or breakfast mind you).

    To motivate myself to get more ZZZZs, I came up with the following list of things I can AVOID by going to bed at a decent hour…

    I can AVOID:

    1. moodiness
    2. under eye bags
    3. forgetfulness
    4. irritability
    5. trouble focusing
    6. head bobbing in meetings
    7. head bobbing while driving
    8. ILLNESS
    9. Incessant hunger
    10. Too much caffeine, thus cycle repeats itself
    11. STRESSSSS!!!

    Good night folks!
