I dont know what about you, but I L-O-V-E  to sleep. It is so pleasant… When I am in holidays I always tell my friends I will hibernate lol! One day I slept for 12 hours( well, I was in holidays)Laughing

What about you? Do you enjoy sleeping very much?  How many hours do you like to sleep?

lol! I'm happy I'm not the only one who adores sleeping :D

Memo, you are right, though the younger you are, the more hours to sleep your body needs.

Guys, I think sleeping is a good therapy, because:

If you feel bored and you have nothing to do, you will see how the time goes on faster if you SLEEP.

If you are sad and you dont wanna think about anything, your mind wont think about the source of your problem if you SLEEP

If you are hungry but you are lazy, alone and dont wanna cook, meanwhile someone arrives home, you can SLEEP

And the last but not the less important: When you have an exhausting day, at the end, the beSt way you can rest and recover your energy is when you SLEEP

Because we love dreams more than real life!

I love to sleep while awake… that's what we called day dreaming. If include sleeping while awake than I hope I am even sleeping while typing this comment!

Well, for me I try to sleep at least 8 hours a day

But on holidays, I don't like to spend all my time sleeping except if I was tired, then I sleep 10 hours or more =)

well, as for me , on weekdays i manage to sleep not more than 4 hours…. i look cheerful, but anyway our organism gets tired even if we are young and full of energy. but on weekends i sleep about 9 hours. i just recover my energy))) aww.. hate when somebody wakes me up)))) hate the song at my alarm clock))

  the doctors say that we must sleep not less than 8 hours a day. as for you , how long do you sleep on weekdays?
