To Sleep Or Not To Sleep

04/21/2014 — 5 Comments


Sleep is one of the most important and wonderful things in life and, i believe, it is a gift from God! Napoleon is quoted as having said that, “Fatigue makes cowards of us all.” This something that is important! We and all living things including plants need rest. The great Bob Hope had the capability to take “Cat naps” though out the day which most certainly came in handy while doing his historic USO Tours which required him to be is far off location and be able to perform while defying his own body clock.

If you want to accomplish anything, in life you must have proper sleep. You will never achieve your goals without it! The great┬áJohn Cleese said that when he hit a wall while writing, he would turn the lights out and go to sleep. When he woke up he was not only able to continue with what he was writing but didn’t even remember whatever it was they the problem he was having was.

Sleep is, to our brains, what a good shower is to our bodies.

Each of us requires different lengths of sleep and one must monitor themselves as to if one is getting the proper amount of sleep for “Us.” Too much sleep is as bad as not enough. If you are in a depression, the proper amount of sleep will bring us out of said depression while too much sleep will take us into a deeper level of this depression.

I speak from experience. I was once in a depression for six months. I never got out of bed and hid under the covers waiting for this depression to go away. It did not go away until two people called me, out of the blue, and reasoned me out of it. These people had no knowledge of my depression but a feeling in their gut. I believe that I owe these people my life!

So, remember! Sleep is imperative!

  1. Are you a dreamer Kip Addotta? Not figuratively, but when you sleep. I have frequent vivid dreams with clear physical senses of touch and others. One thing I note is there is no concept of time while dreaming. The exception being when in my dream I am aware it is a dream and know I must get up for work at a certain time.
