Sleep and other stuff

Leave a comment

I tried to cure that sleep deprivation I was having due to working at night and having appointments during the day. As I woke this morning hearing a report on the idiot box about how 7-9 hours of sleep was recommended for older adults. That less can lead to serious issues like cancer and heart and something else that I can’t remember because I’m still a little tired.

You don’t make up for rest all in one night at this age. And I guess I’m a living example of poor sleep maybe resulting in a few cancers. I don’t know, I’m no doctor but many with degrees are studying this and making connections with poor sleep and serious health issues.

So it’s never too late to make changes. I don’t know if I’m too much in the hole to turn things around but I think I’ll focus more on proper rest.

Local photography. I haven’t gotten out and photographed the local area I live in enough. Think I’ll get out tomorrow and try to correct that.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • My day is the reverse of most of society I suspect. I get up and shower and have 6-7 hours before I start work. I work 12 hours and then go to bed.
  • It’s a good feeling when you get good news about your health.
  • Time for weekly sticker shock when I hit the gas station tomorrow.
  • I’m mentally nowhere near ready for winter.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
