    Shemdog:

    It would be most helpful if you could explain this to my 2-yr old daughter, who has decided that I should be awake repeatedly through the night.

        LOL.. no kidding!

        This is really interesting as I'm reading a book on sleep and how important it really is in all of your metabolic processes.

        And because I can't seem to get decent sleep recently. I can fall asleep fine... but then I wake up in the middle of the night often and dream constantly. I wake up feeling like i worked all night.

          Sleep is necessary for anyone! Waaaaaay too many people overlook the importance of sleep. It is one of the ten laws of the primal blueprint for a very good reason!

          One who is able to sleep well throughout the night and get a sufficient amount of sleep will be able to perform there absolute best in anything and stay alert throughout the day. Oh, and he or she won't need coffee in the morning

            I know I need to get more sleep, and yet I can't seem to get myself to go to bed at a decent hour. Rightfully I could go to bed right now and fall asleep without any trouble at all... and yet here I am, with the computer on my lap, not sleeping. Ugh.

            Thanks for the reminder. Maybe I can guilt myself into actually taking the advice.

              While I had some issues with the book, "Lights Out" (mainly that they disregard all the ambient light in the night sky), it was very informative and did make me aware of how important good sleep is.

                yep same problem here. The dreaming is exhausting sometimes.!

                  I had more than "some issues" with the book. Another of the main premises/assumptions of the book seemed to be that early humans hibernated or almost hibernated for the winter. That's also not congruent with most of the research/theory I've learned.

                    I thought for years it would be great to hibernate... or even nearly hibernate. Where can I sign up?

                      You'll never see the light if you're in someone else's shadow, or said another way, life is like a dog sled team, if you're not the lead dog, the scenery never changes

                        I used to have a roommate that slept at least 10 hours every night and took at least a 3 hour nap every afternoon. I could never understand how he was both bigger and leaner than me while working out less. It's hard to believe that his laziness was actually beneficial.

                          Agreed that the book has some interesting issues. But it does have a lot of good info on what lack of sleep and too much artificial light do to our systems, which is cool. If only for getting me to really think about my sleep, and work on getting good quality and enough sleep, it's been great.

                            As a younger lass ( a looong, looooong time ago) my sweet spot for sleep was around 9-1/2 to 10 hours a night. And EVERYBODY kept telling me that was "too much" sleep.

                            Bah. I was right.
