How much sleep do you get?
Since starting this challenge, I battle to get to sleep before 10pm. That’s particularly hard for me especially if I am getting up around 3:15am to catch a flight as it reduces the number of hours I sleep. I went to see the Doctor at the Hillcrest branch, and she was telling me that the green coffee bean pill was definitely a contributor as I don’t drink a lot of coffee, and nothing with caffeine after midday. However, I didn’t want to compromise myself on this diet in any way by considering the option of not taking them. So I have been strictly managing the time I take the pills, in order to give myself enough time to process them and get to sleep.
So in general I get between 7 and 8 hours. But I can cope for at least two weeks on 6 hours a night before i start feeling the exhaustion. Sleep has been something that I have gotten a bit obsessed about in the last few years and I realised when talking with my friends that I am not the only one. It seems to be as a result of a general increase in responsibilities at work, and the need to be mentally active for a larger portion of the day. If we don’t get adequate sleep our performance suffers.
I truly admire those people who can sleep for 4-5 hours a night as a way of life and don’t suffer! I would love more hours in my day without compromising my abilities to get through those extra hours!
i’d be interested to hear what your sleep hours are?
