Sleep, now!

Posted on | September 17, 2011 | No Comments

I’ve been having problems with sleeping for quite some time now. Until recently I had many theories as to what caused it. Nose obstruction, my elevated bilirubin levels, anxiety etc. But it hasn’t occurred to me that I’m just too fucking lazy.
Yesterday, I decided to listen to an audio-course on speed-reading. It’s not that I’m so keen on reading tons of books, but I’d prefer to think of a book as I now think of an wikipedia article. Knowledge/time ratio for and article makes any book look like a waste of time.

So.. Anyway…

Since the guy on the recording was quite messy in his explanation of how to read fast, I had to listen very carefully. Long story short, after about 2 hours of listening, my brain got so exhausted of listening that I could no longer listen to anything. I just wanted to crawl under a duvet and have a nap. Just like a baby.

But I’m not a baby, so I didn’t.

Almost all day long I was feeling like a dried-up sponge, but I had my best in looooong time night sleep. I woke up an hour earlier than usual and felt not worse than usual…

Conclusion: get tired to sleep well.
