Monday’s Food for Thought: Sleep, or the lack thereof

I love to sleep.

In fact, it was one of the biggest worries I had before we had a child. How would I cope with the lack of sleep? I was definitely a 9-10 hour a night kind of girl. Somehow, I managed. (If you ask my husband if I were a morning or a night person, he’d tell you I am a day person – meaning the rest of time I’d rather be asleep).

This article was published last month in the BBC News Magazine, and I thought it was an interesting read on sleep patterns. Do we really need 8 hours of sleep a night? I’m thisclose to challenging myself to see if I could segment sleep, but I don’t know if I’d be brave enough to try it. Although, the task master in me likes the idea of having two extra hours to get things accomplished…..

The magazine also published a great follow-up article several days later of interesting things people do when they segment sleep.

Do any of you sleep this way? What’s your take on it?
