I have a question!

It's 1:35 p.m. It's lunch-break time and almost everyone is out of the office so it's kind of quiet around! I don't know if this silence is good or bad. Sometimes I love it as I feel I need to have a quiet hour to sit with myself after a hectic day.

But today, I don't feel so. The atmosphere around makes me feel dreadfully sleepy, which brings me to the reason why I am writing this post...

I sleep minimum 7.5 hours daily, and in average 8 - 8.5 hours, which should be perfect for adults. Now why am I always very sleepy? Sari would answer this immediately "It's cause you are not an adult, you are a 7-year-old child!!"

Does this by any chance have to do with the fact that I dream a lot? what brought this thought to my mind, not only that I dream a lot, is that while I am sleeping I have conversations with myself about the dream "being shown"!! If it is a "show"I don't like, I would tell myself " It's ok, it's a dream that will end soon!" It's like I am on two levels during my sleep, the first is deeply sleeping and dreaming, while the other is supervising and monitoring!

I know that is funny and seems totally illogical. But here is my theory about it: Dreaming this much and being so alert about dreams while I am sleeping reduces the quality of sleep I get. So maybe the 8 hourrs I take gives me the quality of 5?

I'm just as sleepy!
I was just complaining about it to a colleague,my eyes are shutting close slowllllyyyyyy....
I think if you are stressing that could be one reason why you are not sleeping well, why part of you stays alert and logical even while you dream, why you do not fall into a long and dreamless sleep!
It also could be a vitamin B12 deficiency, which would cause sleepiness and lack of energy!
Just a thought, i'm suffering from the same problem, when i find the solution i'll let you know!! :)

Anonymous: I wish I can have dreamless sleep, but it's out of my hand! I should look into the B12 thing!

Sari: Adults dont enjoy time with childred, so if you enjoy your time with me, then you are just as "childlike" as I am!

Wa'el: You have the wrong picture, we don'e waste our time on the phone, we talk face to face!!!

Qwaider: nice article, I skimmed through it, but I will read it thoroughly soon. Thanks
