  1. I wonder how many people go to sleep between 9 & 10 pm…

  2. This one too. Most days I’m out by 10. And only wake up when the cat is sitting on the pillow sniffing my face.
    Or when she thinks I’m playing hide and seek with my toes.

    In 2009 I had to resort to sleeping pills, because I start dreaming from the second I fall asleep until I wake up. One dream after the other. A year or two into the sleeping pills the dreams came back.

    When I had to be with my father for a couple of months this past winter I quit the sleeping pills cold turkey. It wasn’t easy in the beginning. Now I sleep like a baby. As long as I avoid caffeine after 4.

    The dreams, I look forward to them now.

  5. Okay – so I’m stressed, emotionally disappointed, angry, a higher power is trying to tell me something, and I’m emotionally blocked. I think I should have made better career choices… πŸ™‚

  6. Interesting. Your post is someone’s interpretation of Chinese clearing times, lending an emotional perspective to the physical organ systems:

    9-11 p.m. β€” Triple Heater β€” The endocrine system adjusts the homeostasis of the body based on electrolyte and enzyme replenishment.
    11 p.m.- 1 a.m. β€” Gall Bladder β€” Initial cleansing of all tissues, processes cholesterol, enhances brain function.
    1-3 a.m. β€” Liver β€” Cleansing of blood. Processing of wastes.
    3-5 a.m. β€” Lung β€” Respiration. Oxygenation. Expulsion of waste gases.

    The myth persists that we “should” sleep for 8 hours continuously. Sleep research shows that we wake up more than once our entire lives, but the interval is short enough that we don’t remember it from the time we are young until we hit our 40s, 50s, 60s. The manufacturers and sellers of sleep medications would very much like us to believe that eight continuous hours is “normal” rather than that different people have different normal sleep times. The average norm is 7.5 and naps count.

  13. If I believed all that Chinese stuff I’d never get over myself. My theory is much simpler. I can’t sleep most of the time because I can’t shut off the trivia in my brain. All I need to do is find the “Off” switch.

  15. I used to sleep like magic… when we had Arabian horse ranch. I was so dead tired! LOL Switched to office/desk work and my easy sleeping went out the door. Now, I’m just used to waking up at 3am and calling it good enough.
