Nowadays, all I do all day is sleep and eat. Write, read and watch TV in between. Health issues that's why I can't have a normal life. Long story. Most time of the day, I sleep and if I don't I eat that's why I'm worried, I'll get fatter. I'm in love with this chocolate cake which is like Wham but is called Luppo and I eat a lot of it in a day. It's like my happy food since I'm away from my friends and I'm in our house most of the time. I think I'm depressed and eating is what I do to make me feel a bit better.

I always want to sleep. I just sleep at most 8 hours,but it's not enough,except the weekends i can sleep much time. I'm just an ordinary white-collar worker,i wish i was a freelancer,and then i can sleep much time,and have much share time to do what i want.But as you said,healthy,eats foods,and something about that are all serious things for us to consider. Or else,it not only can't keep fit and will affect healthy, but also affects your life.

This year, I feel like I always loved sleeping. The longest record of mine is 12hours or more I guess, I can't remember but I am sure that it is more than 12 hours. ;) My mom even told me that if she wasn't there to wake me up then I could sleep for the whole day! hahahaha.. *mothers. XD Well, my problem now is I am gaining weight and I am sometimes late for school. XD

Well the longest I have slept this year is 14hours i guess, last year was worst though. I have gained a bit this winter too but I'm getting rid of it little by little =) Hopefully before summer arrives I'll be able to get back in shape again.

I often sleep more than 14 hours and I'm serious, it's just because I don't have any other thing to do.

Hi Kharen, its been a long time. I hope you're doing alright. Do you have Jesus in your life? he gives my life purpose even though I have seriuos health challenges like you. Have you tried readingthe bible? The book of John is quite intersting, and a good place to start. I love you, but Jesus loves you better.

Yes, I've always had Him in my life since then. I read the Daily Bible Reflections everyday - the verses and the explanations. Attend novena and the mass to hear the good news. Right now, I've just read about the life of St. Paul of Tarsus and it's really interesting to know that he was once known as a son of a Pharisee/ a Pharisee himself and about his conversion and everything. I've realized, too that learning about the author's life will make you have a deeper insight about how he wrote the book/epistle in the Bible. Learning about the Bible is good. It's interesting and you learn a lot from it. They're not just stories and by having attended Bible studies, I was able to understand many things about life and how to live it not only for yourself but also for your love for others. :)

That's good to know, the bible is a great source of comfort, especially in sickness.

Such a relaxing sleep - I wish I have this wonderful sleep like her
Hi there Kharen, Sleep for me is the reward over all activities and over everything. It is because I rarely achieve a very long sleep. I have active insomnia, plus my job as a Contact Center Representative, makes me work from 7pm to 4:30am sometimes it could take upto 5am. I love to work at night though.. When I go home, Im hot striken by the sun, since I live quite far from work. But most of the time, I try my best to sleep and try to ignore small sounds and noise.. My mind is so full of details which I kept on thinking and won't stop till my head hurts. This causes my insomnia. Or if Im deep sleeping and some noise bothered me, I woke up and can never sleep again.. :( even if I am so tired and stressed. For this year my longest sleep will be 7 hours. With that long hours, I can feel rejuvinated and ready to work again. I envy people who can sleep straight 8 hours or more, because I have never experienced it. What I can't get rid of is my mind, racing and endlessly galopping ideas.. My best routine for a good sleep will always have to be having a hot sponge bath, drink warm beverage, avoid caffeine, listen to relaxing music and have my favorite pajamas or best sleepwear :) This strategy worked for 95%... Take care Kharen, may we have wonderful dreams and beautiful days ahead.

These days I also have a hard time sleeping at night thinking of having this new pet kitten by April if I would be able to earn enough money for it. And the only thing to calm me down is holding my 9 year old sister's hand. It just makes me go to sleep easier, I don't know why but it does.

Yeah. I did that when I had to stop being friends witht his guy because I fell in love with him. lolx I slept a lot since it got me feeling exhausted when I think about him over and over again and then the pain and a little bit of the crying until I fall to a very long sleep.

my longest sleep was when i just woke up to have something to eat/drink and spent a few minutes at the bathroom. This was after having a night duty from 10pm to 6am straight for 5 days.

As I grow older, sleep doesn't come that easy anymore. No matter how much I want to have a restful sleep, my mind keeps wondering in the wilderness and my eyes remain wide open. I just have to keep myself busy online to make my eyes tired so I can sleep. Indulging in sinful food once in a while is forgiven. Eat while you still can and don't wait until you lose your appetite like most of the sick people who can no longer eat what they want.

Well, you have a point there about the habits but I think I'm just eating too much and I can't stop because it's what makes me feel happier this time. I don't like it but I can't help it.

10 hours is probably the longest sleep I have gotten this year. The funny thing is I usually sleep 4-6 hours. I know its not enough but hey I feel refreshed when I get up in the morning.

Hi kharen, The same thing with me too. After returning from an academic course of 21 days I have dome nothing. Earlier I would get up early in the morning but now I sleep longer. This is for the first time in my life that I have slept more than 12 hours. This is a record for me. This wont do. I have to sort put things and get rid of this casual things.

My longest sleep this year I think was about 12 hours. But I usually sleep 7-8 hours. I have to say I'm a big fan of sleeping and if I don't get enough of it, I won't be much good during the day. My "problem", though I don't really see it as such :), is that I go to bed really late and wake up in the middle of the day.
