Are you balancing your vidya time with the required minimum of 8 hours of sleep?
I'm 28 and I sleep 10 to 12 hours a day. Fuck off National Sleep Foundation.
I get like 4 or 5, maybe 6 on a good day
Haha help me
>have a hard time falling asleep at night
>cant sleep more than 5 hours
>shitty nightmares every fucking night
>wake up at 2 am with a headache all the time
>tired all day
>about to pass out whenever i move around
can't wait for the day i finally black out for good, fuck this shit life
you got work or something? just take a nap when you're sleepy, and if someone tries to wake you, tell them to fuck off
if you get fired, get a job that lets you work from home. your health is more important than your wealth
How much sleep a specific person might need is very individual. That number you see is just an average.
I used to sleep an average of 5 hours a night and did just fine with it. Now I suffer from insomnia, though, and the various pills I take to combat it makes me sleep much, much longer.
There's a lot about your post I'd get into but the short answer is no. Not entirely anyway, rest of some sort is required for cognitive stability. So unless everyone starts getting into meditation and scheduled naps throughout the day it's not likely.
I have just about perfect values in everything except B12, which I take a shot for every couple of months, and my GP says it would be great if more people could be this physically healthy. It's not just fat people that have problems with sleep.
Without medication it takes me hours to fall asleep, if at all.
That's mostly because it's almost impossible to balance with a 9-5 job, not because it isn't sustainable in and of itself. If you have flexible working hours, or you're a NEET, you can do it just fine.
It actually does give your brain all the rest it needs.
are you me
the only difference is that i can fall asleep fine, but i wake up and it's impossible to fall back asleep
i never don't feel like i could sleep, but at the same time i never can sleep until the day is over
fuck you're right, that was awful
don't make fun of me, i'm sleepy
>tfw rotating shift
I just want to work in night shift only
I know that feeling. I've laughed at some really dumb shit while sleep-deprived.
A friend and I laughed our fucking asses off after a night binging on old games watching this:
>work 10-12 hours a day
>Fixing any sort of food and consuming it takes about an hour
>Hour of decompression from shit job
>6 days a week
>Average 5 hours of sleep a night
I used to do all-nighters, but these days I don't find them to be worth it as I feel like hell for the next few days after doing one, as well as messing up my sleeping. Sometimes I'm engrossed in a videogame to the extent I might end up going to be at around 3am, but rarely does that happen these days.
Does you feel like that all the time? You might want to consider going to the doctor about it. I got a prescription for melatonin supplements, and that works really well for me.
Oh god, I'm not the only one.
Almost every night I just roll around on my bed, unable to sleep. I usually manage to pass out somewhere around 3-4 AM and have to wake up to work on 6.30.
After that cycle has gone for at least two weeks, three weeks top, I completely black out one night and sleep 15 hour straight.
>have been having increasingly worse sleeping habits over the years
>now go to sleep anywhere from 1-3:30 am despite needing to get up at 7
I'm always tired, but even if I sleep a shit ton it doesn't help. I think I may have sleep apnea or something
Fuck this shit right in the ass.
>go in on Tuesday night at 10 PM
>stay until 6 AM Wednesday
>have to go in at 6 AM Thursday
>leave at noon
>have to go in at 10 PM Thursday night
It's impossible to enjoy your life on this schedule. I did it for 2 years.
night shift is the best shit ever.
30 minutes of actual work, 9 hours of paid 4chan browsing. I work at a refugee shelter, absolutely nothing happens at night.
The problem is when I have other shifts the next week. Though for me it's not as extreme as >>323573451's case.
Well, some people do, considering the pay usually makes up for it, and at least in my country, working shifts gets you a lot of free time.
For instance, working on an oil rig means 12 hour shifts for two weeks straight, followed by two weeks off, and it pays extremely well. You can go on fancy vacations every couple of weeks if you're inclined to.
Guy with fucked up schedule anecdote here: I didn't graduate because I hated how little I learned in school and got tired of all the busy work. Hooray, Murrican education system!
In retrospect, I should have just sucked it up and put up with the bullshit so I wouldn't wreck my future prospects and make climbing out of the hole that much more difficult, but teenagers do stupid shit all the time.
I do have a strong work ethic when there are monetary incentives involved though. Probably because I'm part beaner.
