I wish I could sleep for 12 hours but I am never that relaxed.
Same. I wish I could sleep long especially on weekends but I just can’t get myself to sleep that much.
I sleep 4-5 hours a day because of tight working and trading schedule. I think it doesn’t affect my abilities and performance.
Yep… know how that feels… a good night 6 hours… most nights 4 hours… including weekends.
This business is going to kill me… Trading from the Asian zone is a PIA… 3 - 4 am normal bedtime.
What do you guys use to relax before sleep?
I usually read for a bit, that helps me drift off.
How do you survive with 4 hours of sleep? Don’t you feel groggy?
I diffuse essential oils. Reading doesn’t work for me. My brain becomes more active when I read.
It depends. If I have a lot to do it’s enough for me to sleep about 3-4 hours, but usually it takes 7-9 hours
Do you feel groggy when you only sleep for 3-4 hours? That’s good, at least on most days you get the recommended amount of sleep.
In fact, I feel burst of energy if I don’t sleep enough But I feel groggy if such a short sleep goes on for 5 or more days)
I try to sleep 6-8 hours cause it is good for our body and healthy lifestyle.
First time I heard someone who’s more energetic even with lack of sleep. Good for you.
I agree. It’s just that sometimes it’s so hard to sleep that much.
That depends on how tired one is, usually. Also, a comfortable mattress and a comfortable pillow.
Same here i also like reading some good stuff before sleeping, it also keep me away from my phone, which is really a bad addiction
I read stuff on my phone usually.
But I still fall asleep anyway.
ahah unfortunately all good stuff is in my phone
I am very attached to my phone too. I don’t even mind.
Yeah and it’s also what keeps people awake. I’m guilty of this. I don’t notice that I’ve been on my phone for 1-2 hours already.
I don’t mind it. I actually use it to read books and articles. I think I haven’t held a paper book or a physical newspaper in at least two years.
