Sleep is a need. Actually, to be honest with you, sleep is a want and need for me, but in general, everybody needs it.
We live on food and water, but we also live on sleep and that is because the more sleep you get, the more you can do. Sleeping is like refilling your energy bar. Once it is full, you can go ZOOM. Now I know some people who sleep only for 3-4 hours a day and still are okay. Just to let you know, less sleep affects you in the long term.
I am probably the person who sleeps more than anyone in my entire family. (I mean, getting the best lazy sleeper award is hard and takes time 😀 ) Sleep is a need and a want for me. I could sleep for 12 hours straight if I get really tired, which I do sometimes. However, if I feel like lazing around, I can sleep for 12 hours, but maybe with the occasional wake-ups.
I only require 7-8 hours of sleep, although I sometimes sleep more. That is good, actually great. Everyone should get at least get 7-8 hours of sleep. I remember how once I didn’t sleep too well and had sleeping issues for a whole 2 weeks. I felt so annoyed during that time because I wanted to sleep, but my schedule was all over the place.
Animals sleep too! I mean, look at the bears. They sleep for about 100 or so days during hibernation without food, water, and also without passing waste. Sleep is such a huge and important part for them because they need it for like.. a quarter or so of the whole year along with sleep after that. I wish I could challenge them to a sleep off. They would probably win though…. 😦
HOWEVER, if I can’t beat a bear, I bet I can beat you. My highest sleep time has been 16 hours thanks to jet lag. I can still remember the first days of jet lag when I went to India and how I would dose off in my grandpa’s car. Then my grandpa would tell me to wake up and I would just go back to sleep. Not on purpose, I just couldn’t help it. 😦
So my new goal is to sleep for 24 hours. Hopefully that happens someday too. Be sure to comment back below your highest sleep time too! I know that I can definetly beat you. 😀
