Talking with my boss, impressive dude, rich as fuck blah blah… we were discussing the effects of a good night’s rest, he said that he doesn’t use an alarm clock because the sudden jarring from REM sleep is bad for you.
…ok i can get with that, kinda makes sense.
then he says he only sleeps 5hrs a night
…ok, not unusual for most.
THEN he tells me that anything over 6 hrs of sleep is bad for you and quotes some studies and other bullshit. I tell him i need at LEAST 8 to function at a high level, though I usually run on less, i know its not ideal and still try to get naps in.
now im jokingly made fun of as sleepyhead…
this is coming from a guy who’s had 2 heart attacks, is still overweight, and has sleep apnea… i also hear him breathing before i see him.
though he is rich as hell, only dates girls under 22 (despite being ~60) and says he swims a lot.
this thread has no pt, i just had to share
i think this is why i bite my tongue 99% of the time when people talk about fitness and stuff.
i hate getting asked all the time, “yea im tryin to get back in the gym what do you think i should do?”
and stupid stuff. If i actually reccomend something that puts someone out of their comfort zone the person thinks im fucking outrageous.
but ive yet to hear “wow you want me to sleep TOO much”
seriously what the fuck.
