  1. As one of those who has suffered sleep problems for much of my life, I also consider sleep gorgeous! For me, 5 or 6 hours is a great night – one I’m grateful for.

    In a way, it’s helpful when you tend to have a “creative” life (odd hours of work); then again, sleep deprivation takes such a toll on so many areas when it goes on and on… So I’m with you on that desire to hibernate in the cave and enjoy. Now if only it didn’t require a beach, preferably on a foreign seashore…

    Great article.

  2. …the fact that I just clicked on the link for this article when its 2am and I should be sleeping, feels slightly ironic.
    I wish I was a sleeper/napper I really do! While I love the result of sleep, the refreshing feeling but I just prefer being awake, doing things, thinking lucidly, problem solving, working, partying. This often backfires.
    Winding down and getting to sleep is so boring to me. Sleeping past 10am makes me feel like I’ve lost half my day and uncomfortably lazy. Power naps would be wonderful but I psychologically cannot get to sleep when its light out, despite the fact I’m desperately tired-days aren’t for sleepin’!
    So I caffeine binge like a mofo even tho I’d prefer sleep, I have to, to get me through.
    Medicinal holy grail-Actual sleep in a bottle. Now that’d be somethin’ I would buy in bulk.
    You sir are blessed, for your natural affinity to fall asleep. It’s a gift.
    I should try a bit of it now.
    Good night!
