How Our Ancestors Slept


As someone who wakes up during the night feeling frustratingly refreshed...and then struggles to rise in the morning, I found this article to be a kind of vindication. Apparently the way we sleep has changed. For more information you can visit the link here.

  1. My niece posted this on face book this morning. I found interesting. It explains why I can wake up after 4 hours and feel raring to go. It is interesting that modern conveniences changed the way we sleep.

    1. Isn't it? I think from now on when I do that I'm just going to use it as a time to do things, rather than be frustrated.

  3. I did that for years. Go to bed and around 2ish I'd wake up and after a while I decided to use the time rather than lie there and curse the darkness. Very productive art wise and for reading.

    1. Many's the time I have said to myself "If I'm not back to sleep in the next few minutes, I'm going to make use of this wakefullness..." Alas, the alarm the next morning does not take my productivity into account.
