I definitely agree with that. I started using a little room humidifier right next to my bed and I can tell the difference as when I use it and I don’t. I still blow my nose a bunch in the morning (I have horrible allergies) but I’m not as congested as when I don’t. It just comes out easier, if that makes sense.
Contrary to that post I am excellent at sleeping just about anywhere and anytime. Typically heavy sleeper and late riser. Also I sleep on my back only with my legs just slightly apart so my cat can sleep there every night, which leads me to my next sleep attribute: I don’t move AT ALL when I’m asleep…very corpselike.
If I get 4 hours a night I call it a win. If I get all the way to six hours I’m rejuvenated. I’m now normally getting up at or a little before 4AM. Tend to wake up some time between 1A and 3A. Brain seems to be an extrovert.
It’s a little weird when I get up. After my thing, when I get up it is like I’m a newborn. I try not to fall out of bed and then kind of shuffle to the bedroom door and grip the railing as I go down the stairs one at a time, slowly, with the dog anxiously awaiting my arrival (waggy tails are motivational). After an hour of ‘adjustment’ (and feeding the doggo) I could probably do some crunches… maybe a pushup or several. But every day seems like a reset. Maybe that’s why I get up so early… I like to feel normal when I take my kid to school at 6:15.
If OTOH, you are speaking about driving in circles with an underage, non-licensed driver or one without a learner’s permit even, you’d better be careful, though, for according to the old trope, where there are doughnuts, there are police.
P.S. A donut is like a doughnut, but without the “ugh.”
@Kidsandliz@Kyeh I think mine have the decency to wait till 5 but my sleep schedule has been off for ever. For unrelated issues. All I know is they are holy terrors in the morning. Holy terrors after work. During work there’s 8-9 in the bed on the desk with a rotating cast on top of me/the hutch/the keyboard behind the monitor. And in the couch after work.
