Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Sleep (But Were Too Afraid To Ask)



Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Sleep (But Were Too Afraid To Ask)

A great article on sleep that you may have seen before. I want the following paragraph on a plaque. (And yes, I overslept and was late to work today, of course.)

The "owls" are constantly being treated as lazy, though they are more likely to be sleep-deprived (cannot fall asleep until the wee hours, then being rudely awoken by the alarm clock after just a couple of hours) and spend more hours awake (and presumably productive) than "larks" do. If you are asleep, this means you need it. If you are rested enough you cannot physically remain asleep or go back to sleep again. You are wide awake. Thus, when you see someone asleep, it is because that person needs sleep right there and then. Sleep is not laziness.
