Sleep Oh Sleep!

Normally, I sleep on an average of nine hours a day. A lot of people say I am so lucky. I believe I am but come to think of it, maybe the number of our sleep hours depends on us. Way back college, nursing days were so stressful I only slept for 6 hours daily except on Sundays. I have many things on my plate and a lot of times 24 hours wasn’t enough. So I suffered from insomnia and had to take sleeping pills just to get my eyes closed.

Just now, I realized I am wasting my time sleeping for nine or more hours in a day. Something is kinda wrong about this.
1. Books – My books are getting pretty dirty on my bookshelf. Some of them are still wrapped in covers. Reading has been my passion since gradeschool. How come, I ain’t in the mood for reading lately? I also became an orbicularist (someone who reads in bed) though deep in my heart, I am aware that it’s not a good practice. My eyes are also suffering, day by day, seems like everything looks a lil bit blurry.
2. Exercise – Can’t remember the last time I stretched my muscles and cracked my bones. Once my alarm rings, I’m up instantly and straight to the comfort room I go.
3. Television – One of the stuff on this earth that I have a love and hate relationship with. Never loved watching too many tv shows or series. I just simply miss National Geographic and HBO Channel.
4. FM Radio – Though I have an Ipod, listening to radio shows like Sunday Slowdown are one of the best things in life. Chillin’ on a weekend isn’t complete without it. Lately, I’d rather sleep it off.

To top it all, I’m sleeping like a hibernating mammal. I guess this is not good as well. One quote I came across with says “Do not sleep for too long, coz you might miss out on some great things”.
