When I heard it for the first time, I laughed. Then I heard it for the second time, I smiled. Then came the third time & I was didn’t react. Then came the fourth time, I was surprised. Fifth time, I was annoyed. Sixth time, I convinced myself.

…and I still hear people say in their introductions – “Sleeping is my hobby!”

Sleeping? A hobby? 😯

Normally, I sleep for good seven hours. Any extra minute is like a punishment to myself. One hour of extra sleep & I feel like I was hit by a speeding truck once I get up.

Ram Sir used to say, at your age, sleeping for more than 6 hours is a crime! How true. You sleep – you do nothing (except converting oxygen into carbon-di-oxide). I thought I don’t have inadequate sleep. But I’m relieved. Few scientists have found out that sleeping for 8 or more hours is not good for health. Read the details here – How much sleep do you really need?

So, from now on – don’t sleep for more than 7 hours. Understood?

    I sleep for about 9-10 hours a day. I take solace (or maybe so less) from the fact that lions while off 2/3rds of their life in sleeping, but they are still the kings of the jungle because of what they do in the other 3rd. So I guess sleeping more does not matter if you do good things while you are awake. By the way sleeping is not my hobby! (yet)

    By the way did people say that only ‘sleeping’ was their hobby or they said like ‘my hobby is sleeping with ———‘? 🙂
