My 'Cottony' Brain

Met a new friend last week and this affable chap was regaling us with his experiences at work and also telling us about his hobbies and social activities and all. This fellow holds a full-time ‘official’ day job that calls for long and sometimes odd hours, a job that requires him to deal with customers with some odd-balls thrown in between and to travel out of office as when required. Besides, he holds 2 other part-time jobs and he also finds time to maintain an active and happening blog. Writes for Pay Per Post too. Wuuah, he has so much on his plate and listening to him talk, I also felt tired already. How does he manage all this? Either his days have 72 hours or he has excellent time-management skills. Or he doesn’t sleep. I asked and he said he gets by with only about 3-4 hours sleep a night and can still be as perky as a bird singing on the tree. Wuah, lidat also boleh.

For me, an ideal would be 7-8 hours uninterrupted sleep with no waking up in between – straight through till morning, and then I’d wake up feeling very refreshed and ready to take on the bulls and horses. Note, I wrote ‘ideal’. This means, most of the time I make do with about 5 hours sleep, and sometimes less when I take into account the couple of times I wake up to go to the toilet; or sleep disturbed by those annoying motorists/motorcyclist with machines so noisy that it can wake up the dead; or irritating mating calls of the stray felines and this I hate - being feasted live by the pesky mosquitoes. Aiyoh, I’d be tossing and turning and scratching and then get up from bed looking for the medicated oil or Mopiko. Airconditioning helps but I find this drying for my skin, so I normally switch it on for a couple of hours only.

When I lack sleep, I’d be at work whole day feeling woozy and with an all-cottony brain. Ya, the eyes are wide open but the brain is slowwwww…..real slowww…..and I’ll have to read a sentence a few times or my colleagues will have to repeat what she said before it can register in my ‘soft-soft’ brain. And today, this familiar feeling is back and I can see a loooonnnngggg day ahead.

Lack of sleep is a theme in modern life, isn't it?

I think we chase the 'important' things in life so much we forget that the best things in life ... are free.

Sleep well. Tomorrow should be a good holiday.

zeroimpact,
it's true you won't feel tired when you have things to do. the 'cottony' feeling only comes after you finally crashed on the bed and then have to wake up in a couple of hours.

alison,

after taking nescafe hor, gua not cottony - gua turned grouchy.
sei mou, lidat? LOL

king's wife,

Wow, is it possible to survive on 3 - 4 hours sleep continuously while doing a full time job? It's dangerous once your body decides to collect the sleep debt.

'Nya, u lite sleeper...I snore like KTM enjin ordei rosak. Like tat, how leh? LOL!!!
That guy's engine is going to kaput one day. I get 5 hrs every night and when 7 pm comes, I'm already nodding off. Sei lor, how to do study like that??
nyonya jie, go install wood panel on your bedroom, and sound-proof glass on windows, double layered dark curtains.
A good night sleep worth more than you can imagine.
Night night.

  At 11:39 PM Blogger doc said:
some people need only few hours sleep a night & will still be wide awake the next day - they are just different from most of us, but certainly not abnormal.

to compensate, a few will catch 40 winks during the day, while others will sleep longer during weekends & holidays.

i may be such a person & my wife often said, bcos of my sleep pattern, i should have been a night watchman. she's partially right!
kah wee,
adoi....you boleh tahan ke, with 3-4 hrs sleep? kalo gua macam ni, gua mia brain terus shutdown liao. LOL

jonzz,
sleep debt? i was told that one big ploblem wan lor. LOL
