Shared Beds Need Separate Blankets

A big, beautiful comforter, spread neatly across the bed you share with a partner may look nice during the daytime. But at night, chaos results. One person will be too hot, one too cold. Worse, one of them will probably toss and turn during the night, pulling cold air under the covers. The simple solution: separate…

When Your Recovery Is Frustratingly Slow

It seems like you’ve been ill forever. For weeks, maybe months, it has felt like a major effort to do life. On a good day, you might muddle through. On not so good days, it’s hard to get out of bed, much less shower or get to work. Major mental illness has knocked you down and out. Worse, it seems like you aren’t getting any better. Hold onto the fact that long term studies have shown that most people diagnosed with even the most severe forms of mental illness at least get relief from s...

"My mother does not like to admit that anything is ever sad or wrong, so if my father would say something like, 'During the Depression …' She’d say...'"

"'Oh, Dick, there was no Depression.' She was like a Depression-denier"/"My mother was more like a personal depression-denier. Her whole thing was if you were sad, she would say, 'Stop staring at your navel.' When I grew up, I didn’t know what other people talked to each other about, because there were so many things we didn’t talk about"/"My mother was very can-do. She told me, 'Nobody needs more than four hours of sleep.' I hate sleeping. Guilt gets me up"/"I like to sleep because I’m interest...

A new writing project - Secret Diary of an Uber Driver

Lately, I have been using this app called Headspace to meditate and get sleep. While meditation is a guided "lesson" in one or more disciplines of life, sleep is where I listen to bedtime stories that have soothing voiceovers, ambient noises that humans like when they sleep and calming non-commital stories. You know how those old nannies would sing a lullaby? You know soft kitty, warm kitty? That!So, one of the sleep stories on Headspace is a mid-night scene from a Laundromat. In that, its the s...

5 Reasons To Get a Good Night’s Sleep

It’s estimated that approximately 30 percent of all Americans are considered sleep deprived. This equates to more than 40.6 million people. The fact is, getting a good night’s sleep is absolutely essential if you want great health. In fact, this is something that is just as important as exercising regularly and eating a healthy, balanced diet.

8 Reasons Why Your Depression May Not Be Getting Better

You’ve been to four psychiatrists and tried over a dozen medication combinations. You still wake up with that dreadful knot in your stomach and wonder if you will ever feel better. Some people enjoy a straight path to remission. They get diagnosed. They get a prescription. They feel better. Others’ road to recovery isn’t so linear. It’s full of winding bends and dead-ends. Sometimes it’s entirely blocked. By what? Here are a few impediments to treatment to consider if your symptoms aren’t improv...

5 ways life would be better if it were always daylight saving time

In my research on daylight saving time, I have found that Americans don't like it when Congress messes with their clocks.In an effort to avoid the biannual clock switch in spring and fall, some well-intended critics of DST have made the mistake of suggesting that the abolition of DST – and a return to permanent standard time – would benefit society. In other words, the U.S. would never “spring forward" or “fall back."They are wrong. DST saves lives and energy and prevents crime. Not surprisingly...

"Newness or difference from the norm is a very urban, almost postmodern, quest. It is recent. It is class-based."

Said NYT food-studies scholar Krishnendu Ray, quoted in "The People Who Eat the Same Meal Every Day" by Joe Pinsker in The Atlantic. Pinsker goes on:So, when accounting for the totality of human experience, it is the variety-seekers—not the same-lunchers—who are the unusual ones....The daily rituals of office life are characterized by their monotony and roteness, and bringing a different lunch each day is a sunny, inspired attempt to combat all the repetition. I do genuinely appreciate the optim...

6 Mindfulness-Based Techniques to Help You Fall Asleep

You’re all-too familiar with the cracks and indentations of your bedroom ceiling. Because you’ve spent one-too-many sleepless nights staring at it. And staring. And staring. And staring some more.

Casper's Glow Lamp Is Nearly a Dream Come True

As a longtime wake-up light devotee, I was practically losing sleep waiting to get my hands on Casper’s much ballyhooed Glow bedside lamp. Philips Wake-Up Lights are great, but the company hasn’t done much to modernize them over the past few years, so I immediately saw the potential of Casper’s battery powered,…Read more...

"Catching up" on lost sleep may actually do more harm than good

Sleeping late on weekends not only won't help much when it comes to your sleep debt from the week, it can also lead to weight gain, insulin sensitivity, and nighttime hunger. University of Colorado Boulder sleep physiologist Christopher Depner ran a study involving young adults who were assigned different sleep regimens over a two week period, including a group of "weekend recovery sleepers." They report their results in the scientific journal Current Biology. From Science News: Lack of slee...

"In the alternate reality of this novel... humanity hibernates four months out of every year, like bears, gorging on calories in preparation for the long, severe winter."

"Those who have the means to afford a drug called Morphenox can ensure that their slumber is dreamless and peaceful. Why would they want to do this? Because dreams, it is believed, are wasteful, an unnecessary expenditure of calories during a precarious and vulnerable time, putting dreamers at risk of using up all of their stored fats. Worst-case scenario: The dreamer becomes Dead in Sleep. Thus the need for the requisite Governmental Agency to oversee hibernation. The Winter Consuls are those b...

Snoozing Late on the Weekends Won't Make Up for Your Sleep-Deprived Weeknights

Sleeping in late on the weekends won’t protect you from the ravages of barely sleeping during the work week, suggests a new study.

Want Better Workouts? Hit the Sack Early

We’re overextended and exhausted, but we have weights to lift, miles to run, and muscles to build. The problem, though, is that the only time many people have to achieve fitness goals often overlaps with (what should be) bedtime. It’s a Catch-22. Sleep isn’t something to tamper with. It’s serious business. We need at least seven hours to lower our risks of developing cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity, and depression. On top of that, getting enough sleep keeps us from dealing with energy-...

The Mosquito Net

It is 0651 and I am at a Starbucks outlet - the only one that opens 24x7, close to the airport. I am here because I could not sleep last night. And why is that? Because there were way too many mosquitoes at home and I did not have a repellant. While I dream of becoming an assassin that can survive the jungles and all that, I cant sleep in a room that has like 10 mosquitoes. Talk of a guarded life and all that. Salute to the ones that can tolerate the menace of the blood-sucking monsters. Literal...
