When I am working I usually hit the hay close to 1 AM and wake up about 7 especially on the school days when the kids are getting ready for school.
On the Friday and Saturday nights my work hours end later and it being busier I find it harder to get to sleep earlier than 2. But then I wake up about 8.
To top it all off I never sleep straight through.
Usually on my work days I try to take a nap but lately I haven’t even been able to nap. I just lay down and maybe sleep about 15 minutes.
Last night I was off and so with everyone going to bed early around 10ish I decide, especially in need of fighting this cold, do the same.
So what happens I can’t get to sleep. With this cold I am coughing too throughout the night which doesn’t help.
Here is what I need to get some input on. Do we need less sleep as we get older?
