Finally, my sleep patterns have scientific justification
8 Jan 2009
I’ve often felt ashamed of my sleep patterns. I’m much more comfortable going to bed at 2:00 AM and there’s not much that I love more than sleeping till Noon or later. So it was reassuring to read that a sleep study found that people that claimed to be “well rested” after an eight-hour slumber, performed even better when tested, when they slept an additional two hours.
It was also nice to read that I could blame my creativity, instead of laziness, for my preferencial sleeping and waking times. And after reading about our natural stress hormones peaking at 7:00 AM, I don’t know why anyone would choose to wake up early.
I can think of no better time to post this than at 2:27 AM.
