And then I started needing more sleep…
or maybe I always did
In my twenties, I only needed a few hours worth of sleep.
Now, as I get older, I find myself struggling through the day whenever I get less than 6 hours.
In my early twenties, I used to be a champion of recovery. I could get completely hammered drunk, sleep 4 hours, wake up and handle anything.
Now, I have trouble “recovering” from the previous day simply because I didn’t drink enough water, let alone alcohol.
Did these things compound over time? Would I have operated at a higher level all this time had I slept more and drank more water?
You’ll understand when you’re older.
- Make sure to get enough sleep.
- Start saving for retirement when you’re young.
- You’re not invincible. Take care of your body.
It’s amazing how many pieces of advice I received, that now, over time, make sense.
It’s almost as if certain advice is time-released.
But how can we hack that system, so we don’t have to wait for it to make sense until it’s too late.
