Don’t let anything deprive you of sleep

Ang tigas ng ulo ko talaga. I have a very busy lifestyle and I sometimes get to the point where I abuse my body and all my powers that I don’t have any time left to rest. I cannot afford to get sick, with all the bills lined up, I just can’t. You see, I work on night shift and it’s far more exhausting that the regular 8-5 office hours.

Haha, shungangers..nag reklamo eh ako nga kaya ang pumili ng shift na yan.

Ok, going back to my very busy lifestyle, after 8.5 hours of WMFAO, I would go to the gym for 2 hours (6:30-8:30AM), spend 1 hour for steam bath, another 1 hour to eat brunch and some chika chika with my friends, spend 2 hours of friggin’ traffic..makakauwi ako ng 12:30PM sometimes 1PM. Dito ngayon nagkakatalo…pag nasa bahay na, dapat by 12:30, I should be sleeping already but what’s happening is, I ALWAYS SPEND 2-3 HOURS of internetting!!!! Sometimes 2-4 HOURS of watching DVDs. Waaaahhh!! And I should be awake by 7:30PM…get to work by 10PM. Napapagastos pa ko kase minsan napapa taxi pa ko papunta opis dahil sa sobrang antok. Imagine, 4.5 hours lang ang tulog ko everyday. Plus, every Saturday, I’m like MORE than 24 hours awake. Totally sleep-deprived. I would keep myself awake to the point when my body would just give out.

Kahapon, sobrang antok ko while working, sabi ko sa sarili ko I’m not gonna stay long in front of the TV or computer back home. Pero likas yata ang katigasan ng ulo ko. Pag dating sa bahay, haaay…internet to the max and lola mo while watching wowowee. Hindi yata healthy. Kelangan ko mag iba ng lifestyle. What do you think, should I give up the fitness thingy or the excessive use of internet/tv?

Time management has always been a BIG ISSUE for me. I probably would have to lessen everything…siguro dapat 30mins steam/bath, 30 mins brunch para di ko maabutan yung traffic sa Malinta Exit which is eating up a lot of my time…then gradually cut off TV/internet hours. Hay…ansarap kaya mag work ng hindi inaantok. Kaya for a change lang, I will change. Hahaha.

Para sa mga gaya kong sleep-deprived, here’s something to read on:

Problems caused by sleep deprivation

Sleep helps your body to repair itself. It also helps your mind absorb and “file” the day’s learning. When we deprive ourselves of sleep, we notice the effects both mentally and physically. In the short term, these effects include:

  • fatigue
  • irritability
  • careless mistakes
  • difficulty concentrating
  • slower reaction times
  • increased stress

After only a few days of sleep deprivation, the body undergoes changes similar to “fast-forward” aging: memory loss, metabolism problems (with sugar and hormones), and poor athletic performance. If sleep deprivation continues over the long term, it increases the risk of more serious health problems, such as:

  • a weakened immune system
  • diabetes (the body cannot process sugar properly)
  • depression
  • high blood pressure
  • obesity



Hala!! Parang I have those signs already!!! Waaaaaahhhhhh!!!!!
