Why are we proud of our sleep deprivation?
I feel sleep deprived all too often and I hate it. During the work week, I try going to bed at 9 p.m. if I can just to get enough sleep.
And I LOVE vacations where I get the chance to catch up on sleep. I LOVE sleep!
I don’t want to be sleep deprived. I don’t think its cool. Actually, it sucks. You feel tired and sluggish and your workouts aren’t near as good as when you get at least 8 hours of sleep.
Yet it seems like so many people enjoy bragging about how little sleep they got and how much caffeine they need to stay awake.
I mean how many times have you heard a friend say, “Dude, I only got like 3 hours of sleep” as if it were a good thing and super cool?
Why do people brag about being sleep deprived? Why does our culture tell us it is cool to run only on caffeine?
Seriously, I don’t get it!
I LOVE SLEEP!

We don’t brag. We share, in the hopes of learning tricks from others.
I agree that sometimes we are asking for help, but there are those strange people out there who are proud that they never sleep.
I do feel that our society almost encourages sleep deprivation so that we can sell more energy products.
