This is one thing that I do not get easily! Things were different a few years back when I was in school. College was generally relaxed but unbelievably hectic during exam time, and in Engineering, we had a lot of exams! Now, it’s been a year in an IT job, and it’s turned out to be as tough as an Army job!
I’ve read stuff on the internet, and got to know that getting less sleep leads to a multitude of problems for your body, such as:
- Getting fat – there’s goes the last post down the drain!
- Losing hair – ask me 😦
- Lack of Concentration – your mind needs to cool down, it will if you give it a chance
- Decrease in Logical Reasoning ability – don’t know how, but it does happen
- Feeling exhausted all day – obviously!
I know all this, but still get to sleep for just 5 hours a day. All my time gets consumed like this:
Job + MBA Prep + Workouts + Traveling + Eating + Hobbies = Minimal Sleeping 😦
I encourage you too get as much sleep as possible (just enough so that people don’t think you’re lazy!), it’s good for health, a natural healer, and the only way to do it perhaps is to give it more priority than some of the other stuff you do.
I’ll try to find a way to get more sleep, but in case you have anything, do tell me.
