A troubling amount of sleep

Hmm. One might say this is great, but actually people who get more sleep than 9 hours (I need to recheck the numbers) tend to have shorter life expectancies than those who sleep about 7.5 hours.

Needless to say, I’m blessed that I can sleep this much. But I want to reach the same level of productivity as I did when I was younger. I also had a much more disciplined sleep schedule then, thanks to my parents (+ it was a time before mobile smartphones were ubiquitous).

I also had a good blog post idea, but I forgot what I wanted to say… Hopefully this blog post will help me jog my memory!

  1. Hey, that’s good to keep in mind for the sake of sleep tracking. Going off of your advice, I may actually be sleeping around 9 hours then, which is within the range that the National Sleep Foundation recommends… phew!

    In the screenshot above, I’m using Samsung Health as a rough estimate so far (which is free and is pre-downloaded in my Galaxy S8), but my Fitbit Inspire HR just came in today, so I’ll be using that from now on. Exciting stuff!
