We are in the midst of a sleep deprivation crisis, writes Arianna Huffington, the co-founder and editor in chief of The Huffington Post. And this has profound consequences – on our health, our job performance, our relationships and our happiness. What is needed, she boldly asserts, is nothing short of a sleep revolution. Only by renewing our relationship with sleep can we take back control of our lives. – Amazon
Just copped this one and looking forward to diving deep in to it.
I’ve always been one of those I’ll sleep when I’m dead guys, who got it all twisted way back in the 90’s when Nas said: “I never sleep coz sleep is the cousin of death” on NY State of Mind.
Also, my family is low key a military family where my grandfather rolled by army rules and sleeping all damn day was quite possibly the worst thing a man can do with his life. In turn, my father never let us sleep past 9a on any day, even satdays, and I got in the mode of waking up early as hell regardless of what time I’d went to sleep.
Through college and adulthood, as my going to sleep times got later, my waking up times never changed and now I’m to the point where my body is trained to be up at 5 something am, no matter what went on the night before.
I know that its bad, and I’m working on it, so hopefully this book can assist that. We’ll see.
