The days are getting shorter and I’m sleeping more.  I’ve discussed more than once in recent days how wonderful it would be to go to sleep and wake up on my own biological clock.  I have awoke with an alarm for as long as I can remember.  There are, of course, days that I sleep until I really want to get up, but I want more!  I wonder how many hours I would sleep, probably around 9-10?  I heard Einstein slept an average of 10 hours per night.  Seems like a lot, or that you would be wasting your day, but imagine how productive you would be!  The following is the back cover of a book I want to read called, “Lights Out,”  and they recommend sleeping at least 9 hours a night.  May we all strive for such an existence…

The trouble began with the invention of the lightbulb.  When we don’t sleep in synch with seasonal light exposure, we alter our biological rhythms that control hormones and nuerotransmitters determining appetite, fertility and mental and physical health.  By relying on artificial light to extend our days, we fool our bodies into living in a perpetual state of summer.  Anticipating the scarce food supply and forced inactivity of the coming winter, our bodies begin storing fat and slowing metabolism to sustain us through months of hibernation and hunger that never arrive.
