Monday, the start of a new week. For most people anyway. They drain their energy during the week, and then recharge over the weekend. They have active social life’s and use the weekend to socialize with all their friends. Most people are so busy during the week, that their weekend time has become ‘holy time’. They put as many social activities in one weekend as they can, to catch up with all of their friends. Making the weekend another chaotic period, leaving little room for ‘recovery’ for the week that lies ahead.
Weekend! It’s Saturday morning, 07:13 AM, and I’m already wide awake. I often get asked questions like: ‘why are you already awake? You don’t have work, you have no schedule, why don’t you sleep in?’. The situation that I’m in with my back, keeps me from doing activities. I sit at home a lot, go for occasional walks and obviously don’t use much energy throughout the day. So basically, the fact that I barely do stuff is the reason that I sleep so little. With 5 hours of sleep, my body and mind can recover just enough for the day that lies ahead.
