Sleeping Facts

Do you ever think that we were wasting so many years on sleeping? Sometimes I really wonder, why we human must sleep instead of a short break or rest? Don't tell me because of god created us to be like that, if it is why god want us to wasting so much time?

Now days I don't really enjoy to sleep, I felt it really wasting of time, furthermore I almost got nightmare every night during my sleep, I don't know why... Is that a bad sign?

If human no need to sleep, I think we don't have any excuses of no time for this and no time for that. Well, it just my thinking, sometimes without sleep for 24 hours to 48 hours, I still will say that not enough time.

Here is my simple and average calculation for how long we've been sleep in this entire life...

A baby will sleep more than 12 hours a day
A kid will sleep from 8 to 10 hours
A normal teenager will sleep about 8 hours
An adult will sleep 5 t0 7 hours
An old people will sleep 4 to 6 hours or maybe less (Hell... I'm in this category)

Let's say 1 year got 365 days
I'm 30 years old now
Let's say I sleep 7 hours a day


365 x 30 = 10950 days

10950 x (7/24) = 3193.75 days

3193.75/365 = 8.75 years

Oh no... I've been wasting almost 9 years time for sleeping only!!!

Alright... I think it's time for me to waste time and continue my nightmare now...

sleep must sleep one ... body is not machine mah. even machine also stop for maintenance. just think of it as your body's maintenance lor ...

instead of saying how much time is wasted during sleep, maybe you can try to find ways to make better use of your waking hours ?

_butt said...

kenny bro, sleeping is never a waste of time. we need a break, else we will break down leh. the nightmare is a sign, not a bad sign, but a sign that you're not getting enough sleep! lol

sleeping and resting are to prepare you for longer journey!

But sleeping is essentials. I never felt that sleeping is a waste of time because I pretty much enjoy it and felt energized after that.

Perhaps you're all stress up thus you can't have a quality sleep all this while.

Sleep must sleep keh. Our body is also like a machine or a car mah. After sometimes, we need to give them a break. Rest our brain too mah. Maybe we put it in this way, why not we used the time that we are awake to do something good leh. Isn't that had got a longer time than sleep.

Calculation :
24hrs - 8hrs sleeping time
=16 hours that we are awake

16hrs - 12hrs working (average)
= 4 hour balance lagi

Where and how we used this 4 hours leh???

At times, it could be our time management not correct chor leh. I average sleep about 4 - 5 hours a day. Yesterday, 1 slept at 4am and woke up at 7.30am...... 3.5 hours sleeping but still look fresh and beautiful. Hahahaha, self-praise pulak. You know wat I have been practising doing? Take about 15 - 30minutes doing meditation. Just relax your body and breath slowly. You can also put on some music - wei! not the hard rock one har like wan to runtuh rumah keh. Just keep your mind relax and don't think of anything. Let it rest. It works and I have been doing it for my 4 times only. Who teach me? Influence by my hubby lor........ he stress alot also one. See har lar............ Cheer up, my dear friend.

Opps............. how come I so cheong hei chor har? Sei tak ngoh ar.

I think your nightmares are due to the immense stress and pressure you are under now.

Chill man. Things will get better soon.

Hubport said...

Hey, you must be really tired saying things like that. hehehe
You better thank God for giving us time to sleep because there are lot of fun things to do in bed before you sleep. =p like read a book or talk to your partner about what happen today.

We are no machines and IMO, sleeping is not a waste of time. It really feels good when you wake up after a good rest.

About your nightmares, yes it is a bad sign. try cracking it up like a riddle. If it you nightmares is about zombies, you need to stop watching horror movies.
