A year of sleep

with 8 comments

Today is a big day for me. I have achieved something that, when I begin it, I thought might only last a week or so: I kept a chart of my sleeping for a whole year.

Every night I take a mental note of the time when I switch the light off, and every morning, I look at the clock when I wake up; then stumble to the office to draw a vertical yellow line.

Why I began doing this, I don’t really know. What have I learned? Not much really. My sleep pattern seems to be pretty random. There have been a couple of conscious efforts during the year to get things more into line (trying to go to bed before 1am and wake up before 9am), but apart from that, it’s been a perfectly pointless exercise.

Still, I imagine I’ll continuing doing it, cos it has become part of my morning ritual; something that I now do without really thinking about it.

    I remember when you did this for a couple of weeks in about 1994-5

    This is far more thorough.

  6. I’d forgotten all about that, Andrew; but yes, I remember thinking about doing it back then.

    Yes, Mark, it’s be a very different chart if I had a proper job.

  7. It would be quite dull actually, wouldn’t it?

  8. Just admit it’s another excuse to draw individual pixels.
