Day 3141: How much sleep are you getting?

Moments ago, I sent this out on Twitter:

Here’s the link that shows how much sleep different animals get a night:

According to that list, I only need 5.5 hours if I’m an elderly human, which I probably am. However, I haven’t been close to that lately.

Here’s a great response from someone on Twitter:

Why am I getting so little sleep? I think it might be the pandemic, climate change, and now worries about our newly adopted kitty, who has a scary looking infection on her skin.

What can I do about all of those things? Well, my next achievable step is to call the adoption agency today and work this out with them.

I’m looking forward to better nights of sleep ahead with a healthy Joan Clawford as part of our household.

Joan is having no trouble getting the sleep she needs, so I should try to be more like Joan.

In the meantime, getting less sleep allows me to have more time to work, walk, take photos, and hang out on Twitter.

How much sleep are you getting during these precious days?

Here’s “How Much Sleep Do You Really Need?” from the Mt. Sinai Health System:

Here’s “Sleep Music 24/7” if you want to catch some zzzzz’s.

Thanks to all who are doing their best to get the sleep they need, including YOU.
