Tuesday Rambling 1.12.16 – Functioning On Less Sleep


Good morning. Or is it still night? Time to ramble.

  • I’m in the middle of this brief season of less sleep.
  • Ironically, one of our children fell out of bed at about the time indicated in the picture above last night!
  • At least I hope the season stays “brief”.
  • Sometimes for me it’s kinda fun to be up in the middle of the night.
  • I have more time to pray or read or listen to a sermon. No one else begs for the remote.
  • Sometimes I’ll get up and clean the kitchen for something to do.
  • This morning I got a head start on breakfast.
  • I feel terrible for people with ongoing struggles with little sleep.
  • Ongoing sleep troubles would really make me aware of the glory of eternal life, when rest and release from our physical bodies will happen.
  • I always hear something like eight hours is best.
  • Seems like 6-7 average works pretty well for me. I know people who regularly make it on less.
  • I have had seasons like this before, where I’ll dip down to 5 hours or less for chunks of time, or several nights a week.
  • I’m not sure how those seasons end, but they usually do.
  • Here’s praying this one ends soon. But maybe I won’t pray too long just in case I end up falling asleep and missing out on the things Tuesday brings!
