Sleep Diaries

It’s quite a wonder I’ve not written about sleep before. Sleep is, has always been and will always be my favourite thing to do. I can sleep( and do sleep ) at any given time of the day. My family just gets really annoyed when I do so. They just like manage to be so loud and irritating. I mean someone is trying to sleep out here. Can you just? Like please. Shut up. 

And then they say I’m too ” arrogant” or something. But it’s just really simple. What reaction do you expect from someone who only wants to sleep. But that’s just a whole different topic.

Coming back to sleep. It’s just like the most amazing concept ever. You get into bed and settle down to have the best time of your life. Which….is basically a coma? I don’t know I’ve never gotten a hang of this concept.  I mean it’s a pretty everyday concept. You wake up. You spend your day on stuff that doesn’t matter. You sleep. Then you wake up. But it’s always just really confused me. Like I’ve tried remembering the exact moment I fell asleep. I never can. One second I’m trying to sleep. The other I’m waking up to my alarm. 

John Green once wrote,  ” I fell in love the way you fall asleep, slowly, then all at once” 

And that got me thinking( not about love, about sleep.)Like Wow John Green. I really admire and applaud to you. That’s a fantastic way to put it.( On after side note, isn’t it just really amazing when you are reading something..and there it is..that one feeling you could never put into words, or that one thing which hadn’t even occurred to you. Like woah! You’ll are an inspiration) 

Then I came across, Inside Out. That magnificent, magnificent movie. It baffles me how creative these people are. And so  after watching it, I decided whatever sleep is. It comes when your ” train of thought”( they showed an actual train. Just wow.) is retiring for the night. And that’s the second you sleep. The second your train stops. 

And everytime I’ve tried thinking about this at night, I’ve stayed awake till 4 in the morning. I come to a conclusion. Our  brain , is just so mindblowing ( see what I did there )  I’m always doing to be surprised by its ways.

But whatever sleep is, it it’s amazing and also loads of advantages. Currently it’s saving a lot of my pocket money.

So,  All this sleep talk is getting me sleepy.I think I’m going to sleep. You should too. God knows,  we need as much as we can get.

  1. I totally agree. ..

    There was a time(childhood) when I used to run from sleeping and mumma used to force me to…
    And now, when I just want to sleep all day….not allowed to๐Ÿ˜
    When a baby sleeps all day, still he is loved…but when we do so…we have to go through everyone’s scoldings all day long..

  3. Sleep is a state in which the mind is unconscious. When you lie down you are fully awake, then you enter a state of wakeful sleeping with brain waves that are much more calm than those of wakefulness. During this period is when you may experience that sensation of falling and you jerk yourself back awake. This is called a hypnagogic jerk and scientist aren’t quite sure why it happens. From this point your body will go immediately into deep sleep, or unconsciousness, where you will dream. I love psychology and studying sleep is one of my favorite topics ๐Ÿ™‚
