Savvy Rest is very curious about sleep—and about people, too. From time to time, we ask interesting folks these nine questions to give you a peek at how others sleep…even what they’re dreaming about.
How did you feel when you woke up this morning?
Can you remember a dream fragment?
I was running a race, a very slow race…I didn’t win. That’s about it.
What’s the first thing you did when you got up (after the bathroom)?
What do you like most about mornings?
Breakfast. Granola stuff with blueberries and almond milk.
What do you like least?
Work. There are a lot of things to do.
If you could change one thing about your bedroom, what would it be?
Make it bigger.
When was the best sleep you’ve ever had?
Back in the 90’s I spent a week at the Esalen Institute in Big Sur, California. The week was about the spiritual aspects of golf. Between the sessions and the natural hot tubs on the Pacific cliffs—I slept like a baby!
I’m a chronic insomniac so I usually don’t sleep well at all. I wake up at about 3 a.m. and lie in bed awake for two and half hours. My deepest sleep is between 6 a.m. and 8 a.m. and then I’m a mess. This has been going on for 30 years.
What would you like to hear to tuck you in, other than “Night-night”?
